Nothing feels quite as welcoming as walking into a room with toe-toasting in-floor heat and Finken is your go-to heat specialist for in-floor heat repairs or installation. Having your home or business heated from the ground up is a smart move. In-floor systems surround you with consistent, efficient heat, plus the contained system helps avoid the noise and draftiness of forced-air systems that can spread dust and allergens throughout your space.
Radiant heated floors have a series of small flexible “Pex” pipes which are installed underneath your concrete and attached to your sub floor. These pipes then have warm water pumped through them that has been heated by a gas or electric boiler or hot water solar panels and just like that, your cold concrete becomes a toasty radiator of warm, even heat. Whatever your application may be, Finken has the knowledge and experience to provide you with exactly what you want, a healthier, more comfortable living environment and WARM FLOORS!
On top of the comfy climate benefits of in-floor heat, you will also appreciate the cost savings too. Concrete floor radiant heating consumes less energy to achieve the same level of comfort as a forced-air system, which results in lower energy bills. Studies show that people are comfortable at temperature 6 to 8 degrees lower than with convective systems because radiant floor heating concentrates the heat in the lower half of the room where we feel it the most. This can save 10-30 percent on overall heating costs. Finken can further optimize your home or business’s energy-efficiency by installing a zoned system, allowing you to heat high use areas such as bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchens and lower your thermostat in lower-traffic areas. With an electric radiant floor system, you can save operating costs by taking advantage of lower rates for off-peak usage by heating up your concrete floor during off-peak hours (typically at night) and then turning the heat off during the day. Once your concrete floor warms up, it will retain the heat and release it gradually, even if you shut off the system or the power goes out. This retained heat can keep your house comfortable for hours.
