Radiant Floor Heating

Radiant Floor Commercial Heating

Many businesses all over Allentown and the Greater Lehigh Valley are choosing to install radiant floor heating over other heating sources. As it is one of the most cost-efficient methods of heating a space, MBI has helped many commercial and industrial clients with these complex installations.

By utilizing a concrete-based floor to evenly distribute heat, you create a safe and comfortable environment for your employees and customers. Radiant floor heating is a ductless-system, which means you will benefit from:

  • No unsightly, space-consuming ductwork and radiators
  • No noise from circulating air through vents
  • No circulated dust or allergens pushed through air vents

If you are a commercial or industrial business looking for an experienced HVAC company to be your partner during a new construction build, choose our team at MBI to work with you and our associated contractors to install your radiant floor heating system.

Installation and Operations Radiant Floor Heat Works

A radiant floor heating system is installed by threading an intricate network of tubing—usually embedded in a concrete floor—to move hot water and heat the slab. The slab retains the heat and requires a much lower water temperature than conventional radiators. For the ultimate in comfort on cold days, radiant floor heating provides a warm and cost-effective solution.

Ideal Building Layout

If you choose to use radiant floor heat in your new building, MBI technicians and project managers will work closely with the building architects and contractors to carefully plan out the zoning areas and building specs during the early phases of the construction.

To make your new radiant floor heat system as cost-efficient as possible, we recommend avoiding the following situations, if possible:

  • Floors with heavy carpet or area rugs—which may decrease the response time of your system.
  • Untreated wood flooring may warp, crack or become dry with constant heat application.
  • Large open rooms may take longer to heat or cool the floors. This may make it more challenging to program timed temperature adjustments.
