Get Even, Comfortable Temperatures
With Less Energy
By circulating heated or chilled water through a network of pipes installed in floors, walls or ceilings, hydronic radiant heating and cooling systems maintain spaces at even, comfortable temperatures using less energy than traditional forced-air systems. Heat is gently radiated from the panel, warming the surfaces, objects and air in the room to create a comfortable environment.
The water for a radiant system can be warmed with boilers, geothermal heat pumps, solar collection systems and water heaters. Radiant heating allows a thermostat to be set as much as 4ºF (2ºC) lower than it would be with traditional hot air systems without sacrificing comfort. These lower operating temperatures coupled with the superior heat transfer properties of water can reduce fuel consumption, potentially saving up to 30% per year in heating expenses. And since radiant heating can be used with a variety of heat sources, additional savings are possible.
Radiant heating is quiet, clean and economical, and is compatible with a variety of heat sources and floor coverings such as hardwood, carpet, vinyl, ceramic, tile and natural stone floor coverings.
Radiant tubing is made from high-grade polyethylene, the material of choice in applications demanding long life and high resistance to chemical and environmental threats. AB Chelini guarantees its products from age-related breakdown for 30 years. There is good reason to expect the material to last for 100 years or more.
