Radiant Heating Floor Leveling
Why to Radiant Heating Floor Leveling is important? Firstly, water systems are the most cost-effective and popular radiant heating floor systems for residential and commercial properties. Secondly, Hydronic radiant floor systems have been developed to pump heated water from a boiler through tubing laid in a pattern under the floor.
When you design a modern decorative fit-up, heating your home concrete floor with a forced-air furnace isn’t your only option. Furthermore, most of our clients choose to create a healthier, more comfortable living environment and save energy by having the heated concrete floors themselves distribute the heat from the ground up.
Why Choose Heated Concrete Floor?
A radiant heating In-floor offers these benefits:
- The temperature is easy to control and consistent
- You won’t hear the noise or feel the drafts of blowing air
- No allergens or dust get circulated within your home through air vents
- Your feet are always toasty warm
What if you have an existing concrete floor or plywood?
In fact, radiant heating is still your best option. Also, newer ultra-thin heating tubing can be embedded in cementitious or gypsum underlayments. That allows retrofitting over existing old concrete slabs or the plywood without significantly raising the floor height.
Finally, the self-leveling materials protect the heating components, and tubes provide a smooth flat surface for the finishing floor and have excellent healing qualities. That means to the customer once the floor is heated, it maintains temperature very well with the lowest possible costs.

Is Radiant Heating Floor Leveling Worth It?
A radiant heating floor leveling is the easiest and energy-efficient way to achieve a flat and warm floor for your home. Thus, keep your toes cozy even though the cost of leveling is slightly higher than the installation cost of a traditional semi-dry concrete mix.
