More Comfort for Your Money
Ordinary heating systems rely on air circulation to distribute heat.   Because hot air rises, the warmth migrates and accumulates near the ceiling, causing forced air systems to work overtime to heat the occupied space.  Radiant floor heat is more like the sun.  It directly warms people and objects, so the warmth stays in your living space.  It's true comfort while saving money on heating bills.

Comfort You Control
Radiant heat offers you comfort choices.  Warm your entire house or just problem areas like the kitchen, bathroom, basement and entryway.  Whichever you choose, you'll be increasing your comfort today and your home's resale value in the future.   Multiple thermostats can control your comfort and your costs by allowing you to turn down the temperature in rooms that are not in use.  If you want, you can even have a thermostate in every room.

Perfect for Expansion or Remodeling
Uponor Radiant Floor Heating fits right into your remodeling plans.  Uponor tubing can be installed in standard concrete or poured floor underlayment.  PEX tubing installed between the joists is an easy application that's great for retrofitting a home for comfort.  For any kind of addition or remodeling project, reliable Uponor Radiant Floor Heating is an investment in comfort.
