The intent of a radiant heating system is to provide comfort, energy efficiency, and convenience-of-use to your customers. Crawford Supply connects you with the industry-leading radiant heating systems that you need to make that happen.
Whether you’re retrofitting a commercial building or installing a radiant heating system into a home that’s being constructed, we have the Smart Solutions for your Chicago area heating projects.
A radiant heating system transmits heat energy from a floor, wall or overhead panel directly to objects and people in a room. This differs from a forced-air heating system, which emits warmth from vents and heats the air in a room.
Underfloor radiant heating systems require a lower temperature to achieve the same level of a heat transfer as compared to forced-air systems. An underfloor system also keeps feet warm no matter what type of flooring is installed in the room: icy-cold bathroom tiles are a thing of the past with this type of heating system.
Research has shown that a “Cool Head, Warm Feet” heating method is healthiest and most comfortable for a human body. An underfloor radiant heating system comes the closest to meeting this ideal heating method.
Since hydronic hot water radiant heating systems run at the lowest water temperature possible and turn off the system when no heat is demanded, your customer will use less energy for the same amount of heat. Additionally, radiant heat warms the bottom half of the room rather than the top half, so your customer can keep the temperature lower on their thermostat.
A radiant heating system saves your customer 30 percent in energy costs.
Radiant heating systems run automatic functions instead of manual settings, making it convenient for your customers to use. The easy, consistent wiring and installation procedures also make it more convenient for you to install.
With radiant heating, the primary heat source is protected from corrosion and thermal shock. Equipment cycling is also reduced.
Radiant heating projects range from simple part replacements to complete system redesigns. No matter the scope of your plans, our dedicated representatives work with you to identify the heating components you need. We have experience working with a variety of spaces, structures and systems.
