Warmzone Hydronic Floor Heating Systems

The first radiant floor heating systems were hydronic systems, which featured heated liquid that circulated under the surface of the floor. Hydronic heating was first used by ancient Chinese populations as well as the ancient Romans, but naturally, there have been significant developments in the technology since those early days.

 

As the initial technology behind heated floors, hydronic systems have been the most popular means of floor heating. However, the advancements and advantages of electric floor heating systems have made electric heated floors another popular option – both for interior and exterior applications.

 

There are several options when it comes to hydronic floor heating systems. Advanced, lightweight aluminum Rau Panels have become the latest, and most effective material for hydronic floor heating systems. However, Infloorboard is also commonly used, and even concrete mass called Gypsum Concrete or "Gypcrete." Is used.

 

The Rau Panels (aluminum) and Infloorboard (modular board) feature panels with readymade grooves for the PEX tubing, so rather than embedding the hot water tubing in the concrete slab, the PEX tubing is laid in the grooves of the pre-cut panels. Rau Panels are typically recommended as the most effective hydronic underlayment system because of their reflective properties and light weight.

 

However, Infloorboard (a low-mass or modular board) is also still a popular floor heating solution. The InfloorBoard system is comprised of three grooved, 5/8-inch thick, aluminum-clad wood composite panels that accommodate 3/8-inch PEX tubing. Immediately before application of finished flooring goods, InfloorBoard is glued, then screwed (or stapled) to a standard subfloor in a pattern to best accommodate a hydronic tubing layout for a particular space. Finished flooring goods may then be applied over the InfloorBoard as required.

 

Both Rau Panels and Infloorboard floor heating systems are used for remodeling as well as new construction applications.
