Radiant Floor Heating

Radiant floor heating technology, also known as ‘hydronic in-floor’ heating, is an exceptionally energy-efficient, comfortable and healthy way to heat. Radiant floor heat makes your home or building more energy-efficient by reducing infiltration losses and by only heating the lower half of the room. When assisted by a solar thermal system, the energy savings are even greater!

The US Department of Energy says:

“Radiant heating has a number of advantages. It is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating because it eliminates duct losses. People with allergies often prefer radiant heat because it doesn’t distribute allergens like forced air systems can.”

ADVANTAGES OF RADIANT HEATING

Radiant floor heating reduces operating costs up to 30% compared to a standard forced air heating system.

Radiant heating is an efficient heat distribution system takes advantage of the whole floor to heat a space, as opposed to forced air coming out of a small vent to heat a huge space.

A radiant heat system eliminates the need for blowers and vents, providing heat without creating noise or circulating airborne particles (dust, mold, pollen, allergens, etc.)

Another advantage of radiant heat is the low maintenance required- there are no ducts to clean or filters to change

Radiant floor heating systems efficiently control heat on a room-by-room or zone-by-zone basis with the VersaCor Distribution System. The VersaCor is an original design from Sundance Power systems. Introduced in 2002, the VersaCor was a major innovation in for radiant heat and has been a key element in radiant heating systems that we install ever since. Sundance builds each VersaCor in-house at our company warehouse. Our install teams are experts at applying the VersaCor and there are hundreds of radiant heating systems throughout the region that rely upon the VersaCor.

The VersaCor, a Sundance Power Innovation

The VersaCor provides a system standard, reducing installation time and reducing inventory.  The VersCor also benefits contractors by simplifying system charging, reducing call backs, and is easier for clients to use and understand. Two standard VersaCor models are available for 3 to 7 zones. These models feature pre-wired zone controls, commercial grade zone valves, taco pumps, an integrated air separator, and an integrated auto-fill and expansion tank on most units. 

With these models, additional package options include; a pre-wired boiler control, a variable temperature system, priority zoning, solar-assist design, insulation options, custom enclosures, custom panels for up to 12 zones, and a choice of pumps.   

Radiant Heat: Efficient, Reliable, and Durable

These floor heating systems provide continuous, perfectly uniform heating that is different from forced air or electric baseboard heat. Radiant heat also has aesthetic value because it is virtually invisible. Sundance Power is recognized as the leader in radiant heat for our region, with decades of experience in the design, installation and servicing of these hydronic systems. Radiant heat is energy efficient, reliable, and a fantastic method for producing heat for your home or business!

HOW A RADIANT FLOOR HEATING SYSTEM WORKS

The basic idea is simple. Hot water is run through tubing that is either attached under the floor or embedded in the concrete slab. The hot water running through the tubing warms the floor and radiates heat into the building. By heating the floor, you create a thermal inversion that traps cool air at the ceiling and circulates warm air where you are.

The details of how your radiant floor is built will depend on your specific situation, such as whether you’re working with new construction or an existing building, and what floor materials you’re using. Sundance Power has designed radiant floor heating systems for hundreds of homeowners and businesses throughout the Southeast. Our experience with radiant heat allows us to work with you on the best possible heating system for your needs.
