||It's time for you to think comfort. And for many of you, it's a
barefoot comfort you've probably never felt before. Radiant heating isn't a new
concept. It controls the rate at which a body loses heat by turning large
surface areas (floors, walls, ceilings) into large, low-temperature radiators.
These surfaces surround a person with warmth. Efficient and economical, radiant
heating systems keep families like yours cozy and comfortable and often
increase the resale value of your home. We can design your radiant system to
meet both your needs and your budget.
|Here's how it
works. Radiant floor heating systems circulate warm water through PEX tubing
embedded in the floor of your home. The heat radiates up through the floor,
warming the people, furnishings and air in the room. The warmth stays down
around where the people are, not up at the ceiling or lost to the outdoors
every time a door or window is opened. It's a comfortable, even heat where cold
spots and drafts are eliminated.
|True Comfort Imagine your beautiful floors now warm and
cozy to the touch
Works Everywhere Under tile, marble, wood,
carpet and concrete floors. Radiant walls and rdiant ceilings can also create a
cozy, efficient environment
Economical Potentially saves up
to 40 percent in energy costs compared with forced-air heating systems
Clean and Healthy No drafts or fans blowing dust, dirt or
allergens into the air
Quiet Eliminates noisy fans, popping
ductwork and pinging pipes
Increases Living Space Lets you

||Why mess with
shoveling, salting and sanding during the winter? There's an easier way. The
concept of utilizing radiant heat to improve your life indoors also works
outdoors. An Uponor snow and ice melting system keeps your driveway, walkways
and sidewalks clear by melting snow and ice before it has a chance to
accumulate. It can be installed under concrete, asphalt or a sandbed.
BENEFITS of an Uponor snow and ice melting system include:
quality of life no more shoveling or sanding, saving valuable time
Safe allows access to your home that is free from dangerous
ice and snow and prevents slips and falls, reducing liabilities
Reliable goes to work to prevent snow and ice from
accumulating as soon as it starts to form.
contracted snow removal costs and the need for costly and dirty melting agents
or sand applications
Clean salt and sand is no longer tracked
into heated spaces
|Just as with radiant floor heating, warm water circulates through
durable PEX tubing. The tubing can be buried in concrete, asphalt or a sandbed.
The water heats the slab and melts the snow and ice. Systems can be designed to
operate automatically or manually with an on/off switch. Consider an Uponor
snow and ice melting system for your driveway, walkways, steps and wheelchair
