About Radiant Heat Installation
A Time-Proven Process That Stands Up Over Time
Given the opportunity to work with clients all around the Puget sound area from Everett to Bellevue, our expert team here at the Janes Company is experienced in the best methods and techniques of installing radiant heat. There are two distinct ways to install a radiant heating system. The first is in the floor itself, the other under the subfloor between the joists. Which system you should choose depends on the room and couple other factors.
In-floor Radiant HeatingIn-floor installation is most commonly done in new construction, additions and remodels where the flooring is already exposed. Tubing is installed by stapling it down over the plywood sub-floor and can be covered with a thin pour of Gyp-Crete floor underlayment. It also may be installed directly into a concrete slab. In some cases the tubing is even stapled to the bottom of the sub-floor between the floor joists. There is a system of radiant floor heating to fit any project.
Under-Joist Radiant HeatingThis form of heating is more than adequate in most applications. The tubing would be stapled to the bottom of the subfloor between the floor joists and insulation would be installed to keep the heat going up where you want it.
