Hydronic Radiant Heating

Radiant heat is the most comfortable and efficient form of home heating. Radiant floor heating systems conduct heat through the floor which then broadcasts heat to every cold object in the room, especially to you. It’s an unparalleled sense of comfort, and the fuel efficiencies can be tremendous. Moreover, there are no vents in the way of your furniture plan, and no forced air to stir up dust or make noise. Watts Radiant hydronic heating systems are clean, quiet, and decorators love them. With no vents or baseboards present furniture can be placed anywhere. Any type of floor covering can be installed over these systems. There simply is no match for radiant floor heating.

Our radiant heat systems warm homes, businesses, warehouses, garages, and even airplane hangars. Our hydronic tubing is easily installed in new construction and retrofitted into existing structures. Premium Onix ™ tube or RadiantPEX ™ cross-linked polyethylene pex tubing can be installed above or below subfloors in Staple-ups™, slabs, thin slabs, or sandwiched between subfloors. For ease of installation our innovative SubRay™ radiant heat system provides you with even more options and flexibility.

Enjoy the comforts of a Watts Radiant floor warming system - you'll thank yourself again and again.

About Radiant Heat
In a resting position the human body will produce about 400 Btu's/hour. This is about 300 Btu's more than we need to survive.

In order to "feel" comfortable, we need to shed these extra Btu's. A heating system is a mechanism is which we control the rate excess heat is lost.

The slower we lose heat, the warmer we feel.

In order to heat a space, something within that space has to be warmer than the desired space temperature (hot to cold).

In a forced air environment, the air coming from the duct is between 120° and 140°, assuming a 72° desired room temperature.

In a radiant floor system the floor temperature is between 72° and 85°, assuming a desired 68° room temperature
