InfloorBoard Hydronic Heating Systems

Why Use InfloorBoard over Other Hydronic Floor Heating Systems

Hydronic floor heating systems work well in concrete, but the response time is less than stellar. The heated liquid must first warm a significant thermal mass before heat begins spreading out from the panel. Many of these systems accelerate and decelerate slowly due to the large thermal mass, and they can be difficult to control. InfloorBoard, being thin but relatively dense and aided by its conductive aluminum layer, responds very rapidly. This results in greatly improved response time with almost no overheating since there is almost no “thermal lag” to overcome. InfloorBoard can be controlled with standard setback thermostats.

 

Hydronic floor heating Rau Panel. The layer of aluminum on InfloorBoard and in the groove significantly enhances the transfer and evenness of heat distribution of the board. Aluminum is approximately 1000 times more conductive than wood. Acceleration is a measure of how fast a radiant heating system responds. The thin profile and relatively high density contributes to its superior acceleration and deceleration, providing heated floors quickly and efficiently.

 

Another technologically advanced system that Warmzone carries are Rau Panels (right). These lightweight aluminum panels feature unmatched reflective capabilities, are easy to install and are must less expensive to ship than other similar products because of their light weight.

The Advantages of the InfloorBoard Hydronic Floor Heating System 

  *

InfloorBoard uses the latest technology in underfloor, hydronic (hot water) heating.

  *

InfloorBoard hydronic floor heating is more efficient, more responsive, and compatible with standard construction practices. It is ideal for new construction and remodeling alike, offering a low profile, light weight, and rapid response.

  *

InfloorBoard delivers a genuine advance in the best hydronic floor heating system you can buy.

  *

InfloorBoard's thin profile makes it excellent for retrofits.

  *

InfloorBoard is excellent for small projects, whereas cement and gypsum are impractical and expensive in the same circumstances.

  *

Many jobs are lost due to resistance to pouring slabs or thin slabs that would not be lost with InfloorBoard.

  *

InfloorBoard hydronic floor heating systems can be installed in cold weather without fear of freezing.

  *

Double plating adds about 18 cents a square foot to the cost of a home and is needed with thin slab pours.

  *

Many floor heating jobs are lost due to the perception of slow response times of cement systems. InfloorBoard accelerates rapidly and is appropriate for control with a simple setback thermostat or can be remotely controlled for weekend use.

  *

Scheduling of InfloorBoard can be more closely controlled; no trucks to wait for!

  *

InfloorBoard can go in later in a project, thus reducing time that piping is exposed to damage.

  *

InfloorBoard is more cost-effective.

  *

Pipe is not run under walls with InfloorBoard.

  *

InfloorBoard is easily utilized in floor retrofits and home remodeling projects.

  *

InfloorBoard is easier to cut and custom routing is easier than with WarmBoard.
