Slab heating is a system of pipes laid into a concrete floor. When heated the pipes generate a radiant heat which combined with the natural air convection of the home creates a comfortable and uniform heat throughout the home.
The heated water circulating throughout the pipe enables the entire floor to become a radiator. As slab heating heats the entire home both surfaces and objects, less energy is required to maintain the selected temperature.
Once installed a floor coil provides a quiet, energy efficient, low maintenance heating system that does not blow dust and bacteria particles in the air.
The pipes can be connected as one zone controlled by a central thermostat or divided into different zones controlled by individual thermostatics to create different levels of warmth in various sections of the home.
Floor coil options
1. Pipes are tied to the form work prior to the concrete being poured
2. Pipes are laid into a positioning board for extra insulation and topped with a concrete screed
