Heated Flooring

Tiled floors are very durable and aesthetically pleasing. When installed with a radiant heat system, tiled floors can become an environmentally friendly, efficient way to heat a home.

Radiant heat warms a room by heating the floor, as well as the major elements in a room (e.g., desk, couch, chair, etc.), thereby distributing heat in a comfortable way throughout the space.  In contrast, a "forced air" heating method, such as a radiator or heating vent, blows hot air into specific areas of a room, often only heating those areas closest to the heat source.  

 

Traditional radiant heat systems require a thick slab of mortar into which the radiant heat tubes are set and over which tiles are installed.  Mortar screeds for radiant heat, however, are heavy, costly, and labor intensive, all of which are problems in construction.
