This home looks the part in a winter wonderland, and its occupants enjoy comfortable, even heat due to the inclusion of Warmboard-S, a modern radiant heating system. The water-bearing tubes in the high-tech panels are coated with aluminum for rapid conductivity, which translates into highly responsive home heating.

Family health and comfort rank high on the list of priorities for any remodeling project. Thanks to technological advances, retrofitting an interior with radiant heating is one way to ensure both and save money at the same time.

Warmboard is a leading provider of radiant heating panels in North America, says brand manager Ross McCord.

"Radiant heating has been popular around the world for many years, but until recently it had attracted only a small market in the United States," says McCord. "However, times are changing and Warmboard's high conductivity and ease of use make it easier to install and enjoy this efficient heating solution for both remodels and new builds."

The company sells two products, one for each scenario. For new homes and additions, Warmboard-S serves as a primary subfloor and radiant heating panel, installed in one easy step. Warmboard-R is for remodels where it's easy to install over an existing subfloor or slab, as well as on walls and ceilings.

"People choose radiant heat primarily for the levels of comfort it offers," says McCord. "An added benefit of radiant heat is that homeowners can expect a reduction of about 25% in heating bills. With Warmboard, they can see this figure improve by another 15% or more, due to our products' superior conductivity.

"Radiant heating is also ideal for those who live with allergies or asthma. There are no noisy fans to blow allergens, dust or pathogens through an otherwise healthy interior."

Instead of heat collecting on the ceiling and making upstairs too hot while downstairs remains cool, radiant heating ensures an even temperature throughout the home. It is easy to control and adjust on a room-by-room basis. By using the zoning feature, occupants can optimize comfort in some rooms, while turning down the heat in others to conserve energy. McCord says this means Warmboard offers an eco-friendly heating solution for your home.

"There are several radiant options available. For warming small areas, like bathrooms, electric mats under tile keep your feet warm. But when you want that cozy comfort throughout your home, along with the lowest heating bills, Warmboard's patented water-based technology, delivers both by combining high conductivity with fast responding, low mass panels.

"Each Warmboard panel has a thick layer of aluminum bonded on top and tubing is pressed into the channels in this surface, " says McCord. "The flow of warmth from tubing to aluminum to the floor surface whether it's wood, carpet or tile is extremely efficient, creating a highly responsive heating solution."

In addition, homeowners are able to set water temperatures lower, saving on energy, and wear and tear on the system. Warmboard homes run water between 80-120ºF while other radiant systems operate between 110-180ºF.

"The lower temperatures also mean that Warmboard products are ideal for integration with alternative forms of energy, including solar and geothermal systems which have limitations on water heating temperatures," says McCord.

"For warm, healthy interiors, modest energy bills, and convenience, Warmboard is a solid option for rebuilds and new builds alike."
