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 RAUPANELS™
have become the latest and most
effective material for hydronic floor heating systems.
Older technologies such as Infloorboard, and even concrete
mass called Gypsum Concrete or "Gypcrete" are also not
The RAUPANELS (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. RAUPANELS are typically
recommended as the most effective hydronic underlayment
system because of the aluminum's reflective properties
and light weight.
The RAUPANEL floor heating system is designed
to provide rapid response, optimal
performance and ease of installation.
This effective low-profile system is an excellent
alternative to joist heating and poured thermal
mass applications. The RAUPANEL system consists of
3/8" RAUPEX pipe, extruded aluminum panels for strength,
and wood return bends. The aluminum panels offer high
conductivity with a low profile and a low mass, and eliminate
the need for structural reinforcement. RAUPANEL systems
are easy to install, and require less job site
preparation and installation time.
