Integrating Radiant Floor Heating into a Home Design

When designing a radiant floor heating system into a home, there are some important factors to consider.

Be clear on what the homeowners expect from the radiant system. Are they looking for warm floors or space heating? Do they want radiant floor heating throughout the entire home or just specific areas? What is the construction plan? Are the homeowners integrating into an existing frame? Can you accommodate construction changes for potential benefits?

It is also very important to work closely with the radiant floor heating installing contractor to ensure the design plans you have laid out will be compatible with the installation application for the radiant system.
