Easy Installation of Efficient Radiant Heat in Existing Homes without Remodeling
March 17, 2017 | by Monica Irgens
Oftentimes, radiant heating systems are installed with new construction or when replacing carpeting and other flooring material, or during a remodeling project. The thin, 1.2 mm, STEP Warmfloor heating membrane that utilizes low voltage energy, can be cut and easily fit between floor joists, floor trusses or I-joists…under the sub-floor. This “staple-up” method enables the self-regulated heating system to quietly and efficiently heat the floor from beneath, giving the room comfort without the dust and noise of a forced-air system.
This method is easily accomplished by simply installing it from the basement or crawl space areas. The radiant heat warms the floor, furniture and feet making you feel comfortable at a lower room air temperature. The self-regulating feature is a critical aspect of STEP Warmfloor. As the radiant heat warms the floor to a desired temperature it reduces the call for energy. The result is even comfort and reduced energy use.
