Control

Compared to conventional radiant in floor heating systems, Ultra-Fin has revolutionized the way to maximize the number of heat zones throughout your home. By using less materials and labor, the Ultra-Fin system not only maximizes your heat throughout your house, it also maximizes savings and comfort. Have your heat where you need it, and when you need it.

 

Comfort

The radiant heating system works on the premise of heating the floor so that the heat is where you need it – from the feet upwards. With most other heating systems, such as forced-air and electric baseboard, the heat simply travels to the ceiling, where it provides little practical comfort to building occupants.

 

Health

Why live in a dust bowl? In contrast to forced-air systems, radiant heat doesn’t blow dust, allergens, and dirt around the living space. Individuals who suffer from allergies especially appreciate the dust-free aspect of radiant heat, homeowners would rather avoid frequent dusting and cleaning of their home interior.

 

Efficiency

Thermostats can generally be set at lower temperatures than other types of heating systems to achieve the same degree of comfort. Radiant heating systems work from the floor upwards, so there is less heat being “wasted” at the ceiling level.

 

Power

Radiant heating systems can operate with a variety of power sources. While the most common power sources that provide heat for hydronic (hot water) systems are electric or gas boilers, alternative methods such as ground-source heat pumps can also be used to heat the water.

 

Flexibility

The radiant heating system works on the premise of heating the floor so that the heat is where you need it – from the feet upwards. With most other heating systems, such as forced-air and electric baseboard, the heat simply travels to the ceiling, where it provides little practical comfort to building occupants.

 

Simplicity

With the Ultra-Fin Radiant Floor Heating System, hot water tubing runs either adjacent or across open joist spaces for easy installation. Once the tubing is in place, the aluminum Ultra-Fins are quickly clipped on. The Ultra-Fin Radiant Floor Heating System requires an easy, time efficient installation system in comparison to all other hydronic radiant floor heating systems.

Environment

Radiant heat systems are more energy efficient than other standard home heating systems. They can decrease the carbon footprint normally generated from burning fossil fuels for home heating, or the environmental impact created by demand for electricity used in home heating.
