  • RADIANT FLOOR HEAT Over one hundred FREE pages about installing and designing radiant floor heat I built this web site in 1996, it is designed and maintained to help the average home owner realize how affordable and how easy a radiant heating system is to install

  • In the past twenty plus years I have installed hundreds of radiant heating systems and have shipped over a thousand radiant heating packages for the home owner to install

  • I have seen many homeowners install their own systems, not because they were the do-it-yourself type, but because they saw this as the only way they could afford a quality radiant heating system

  • I have dedicated this site to the advancement of affordable radiant floor heating

  • There is a very large gap between the theoretical information furnished by the manufacturers of heating equipment and the information needed by the person actually installing the system

  • Many tradesmen do not have the experience required to design, install and troubleshoot radiant heating systems

  • Most plumbers have plumbed hundreds of homes but few have installed successful radiant heating systems

  • THE GOOD NEWS… A radiant floor heating system if designed and installed properly will be the most comfortable, efficient and can often be installed for less than a forced air system

    Solar Heating
    Glossary of basic terms relating to solar heating.

  • Glossary of Solar Heating Terms Absorber The blackened surface in a collector that absorbs the solar radiation and converts it to heat energy

  • Active System A solar heating or cooling system that requires external mechanical power to move the collected heat

  • ASHRAE Abbreviation for the American Society of Heating and Air-Conditioning Engineers

  • Auxiliary Heat The extra heat provided by a conventional heating system for periods of cloudiness or intense cold when a solar heating system cannot provide enough

  • Heating Season The period from early fall to late spring (in the northern hemisphere) during which additional heat is needed to keep a house comfortable for its occupants

  • Indirect System A solar heating or cooling system in which the solar heat is collected exterior to the building and transferred inside using ducts or piping and, usually fans or ducts

  • The lower electrical element is removed, leaving the uppermost of the usual two elements to provide auxiliary water heating and to achieve good stratification (layering of hotter water over progressively colder water)

  • Passive System A solar heating or cooling system that uses no external mechanical power to move the collected solar heat
