Product and Services

Radiant Heating: The Heating Specialist is known in the Portland, OR area for designing and installing radiant heat flooring. Whether you are retrofitting a new radiant heating system in an existing home or designing your heating and cooling system for your new custom home; we have the expertise to help design and install Hydronic heat systems in your new or existing home.

Under floor heating is an increasingly popular way to heat a home efficiently. We are experts in the field of radiant heat solutions. Contact us today and find out why we are one of Oregon’s radiant heating system leaders. The Most Comfortable Heating System on the Planet Is Radiant Floor Heat, which offers increased comfort, economy, and flexibility.

Radiant heat systems use warm water circulated through tubing in floors to heat the home. This provides a more constant and even heat than forced air. These systems are designed to be just below the surface of the finished floor.

Electric Radiant Systems are frequently used in very small applications where it may impractical to use warm water. The best method is to circulate warm water under the floor (Hydronic Heat) in a space age material called PEX, which stands for Cross Linked Polyethylene; an extremely tough and durable material.

This material is so strong and chemically inert that it may outlast the structure. Radiant Floor Heating is the best of the best! Walking on a warm floor on a chilly day can make all the difference. You’re never hot, or cold, just warm.

Floor Heating vs. Forced Air Heating: Floor heating is much more effective at distributing heat than forced air heating because it delivers heat from the feet up as opposed to the ceiling down with forced air heating. TRadiant heating, airflow examplehis method very closely approximates the body comfort curve.

There is no over and under heating as with forced air systems. People and pets are more comfortable at lower temperatures, using less energy, and hence saving energy and money. Studies show 35-40% less energy used to achieve higher comfort levels than forced air systems.

Underfloor Heating Works: A good Boiler or Water Heater is the heart of the system, generating warm water which is then distributed to various zones in the home or building with pumps and controlled by a thermostat. Each climatic area can be controlled separately.

For example the Master Bedroom Suite might be a separate zone; the general living area another zone; other bedrooms on the same floor another zone; and so on.

This provides for the greatest control and comfort. Other Hydronic Heating solutions include a multitude of Radiators and Panels that provide heat from the wall. These systems are also more comfortable than forced air systems.

These systems are also more comfortable than forced air systems. In floor heat works well with most floor surfaces, whether it is tile, hardwood, carpets, concrete, laminates, etc.

This is because we have many application methods. For ‘slab on grade’ we can install the tubing in the concrete. This is most common for basements, homes utilizing stained concrete floors, garages and shops.

For framed floors, methods vary from Gypcrete over the top of the tubing, Warmboard, which is complete sub floor product with a groove for tubing, and other track type products; and the installation of tubing in the joist bays.

No matter what your construction type, there is a method to accommodate Radiant Floor Heating. This kind of flexibility allows for both new construction and remodel situations.
