Why Your In-Floor Heating Isn’t Working

Monday, March 8th, 2021

Heating for homes in Orange County is usually done with forced-air systems, such as a furnace or heat pump. But the popularity of in-floor heating has grown over the last decade as an alternative to having heated air blown out of vents. You may live in a recently built home that took advantage of the benefits of in-floor heating, which means you have a hydronic boiler supplying the heated water that runs in cables under the subfloor to deliver heat. This system needs special care, and there are not many local HVAC contractors who work with them. 

But we’re proud to offer hydronic boiler repairs in Newport Beach and throughout Orange County. When you have trouble with a hydronic heating system that isn’t doing its job, call us to take care of it.

Why Install a Hydronic Floor Heating System in Orange County

Monday, October 1st, 2012

One of the hottest additions to Orange County home heating in recent years is the hydronic floor heating system – a combination of classic hydronic boiler technology and carefully design work that can actually have heat radiating out of the floorboards in your home. Here are a few reasons why you might consider having such a system installed and the specific benefits they offer.

First, There’s Comfort

Imagine stepping out of bed on a chilly winter morning and putting your feet down on toasty warm tiles or wood flooring. Instead of the ice cold of most flooring materials that either forces you to wear socks perpetually or put down heavy, pricey rugs, a hydronic floor heating system ensures that your home is always warm, no matter where you step.

Supplemental Heating

A radiant floor heating system offers a supplement to your standard heating system. This reduces the workload on your other heating systems and ensures that you remain comfortable even when the others are off or turned down, saving you money. You can also switch to an all hydronic system and gain a number of additional benefits.

Even, Efficient Heating Distribution

A system that consists only of hydronic floor heating ensures even heating throughout your home – no cold or hot spots. Additionally, the system will operate less often as heat radiates slowly from the water pipes, rising from the ground to provide ample, even heating all day.

A good radiant floor heating system is a good fit in many types of Orange County homes and even in some businesses. How it will fit into your current heating system, the impact it will have on your budget and where it can be best installed in your home will depend on a number of other factors, so make sure you contact a professional if you are interested in learning more about what options are available to you.
