Radiant Floor Heating Contractors
- Radiant heating is a technology for heating indoor and outdoor areas. Radiant heating consists of "radiant energy" being emitted from a heat source. Radiant heating heats a building through radiant heat, rather than other conventional methods including convection heating.
- A type of radiant heating system where the building floor contains channels or tubes through which hot fluids such as air or water are circulated. The whole floor is evenly heated. Thus, the room heats from the bottom up.
- (contract) enter into a contractual arrangement
- (contract bridge) the highest bid becomes the contract setting the number of tricks that the bidder must make
- A person or company that undertakes a contract to provide materials or labor to perform a service or do a job
- (contract) a binding agreement between two or more persons that is enforceable by law
- heating system: utility to warm a building; "the heating system wasn't working"; "they have radiant heating"
- (heat) a form of energy that is transferred by a difference in temperature
- Equipment or devices used to provide heat, esp. to a building
- the process of becoming warmer; a rising temperature
- The imparting or generation of heat
Mr. Heater MH42T 42,000-BTU Propane Tank-Top Radiant Heater
The Mr. Heater MH42T 8,000-42,000 Btu triple heater is a step up from the two-burner model, giving you the flexibility of using one, two, or three burners. The unit mounts directly to 20- to 100-pound cylinders. It uses infra-red heat, which means that it warms the objects in front of it, not the surrounding air. This gives you more heat per Btu, which means that using all three burners at the highest of the three settings will keep you warm even in miserably cold situations. Each element shuts off automatically with loss of flame. Do not use in unventilated areas. One-year limited warranty.--Josh Dettweiler

Five Tips for Buying a Heater
Choosing a space heater is a matter of sifting through a bewildering array of types, power ratings, and fuel sources. Let's break it down a little to make the process easier.
What are the different types of space heaters?
Radiant heaters emit infrared radiation that directly warms the objects in front of the heaters (rather than the surrounding air). If you only need heat by a desk or in a small section of a room, a radiant heater is quiet and will use very little power.
Forced-air heaters use a fan to blow air that has been warmed by metal or ceramic heating elements. A forced-air heater is appropriate for quickly heating up a small- to medium-sized room, but can be noisy.
Convection heaters draw cold air from the floor; the air is warmed by heating coils and emitted from the top of the heater. A convection heater is appropriate for quickly heating up a small- to medium-sized room, but also can be noisy.
Radiators work by heating oil enclosed in a reservoir, gradually heating the surrounding air. If heating speed isn't an issue, you might want to opt for a radiator. These are extremely quiet and effective--perfect for bedrooms.
Should I buy an electric or a combustion model?
If you want a heater that will be available in emergencies, or that can heat areas larger than a single room, choose a "combustion" model--one that is powered by a gas or fuel like propane, kerosene, natural gas, or diesel. Which fuel type you choose depends largely on convenience and local availability. For example, diesel would be appropriate for a heater you take with you on long car trips.
How powerful a heater do I need?
Heaters are rated by BTU, which stands for British Thermal Unit (the amount of heat needed to heat one pound of water by 1 degree F). To find out how many BTU you need:
Calculate the volume of the space to be heated by multiplying square footage by height.
Multiply that number by 4 if your insulation is poor, 3 if it's average, or 2 if it's good.
The resulting number is a ballpark figure for how many BTU you'll need.
Do space heaters cost a lot to operate?
As a general rule, electric space heaters are more expensive to use than combustion models. To ensure energy efficiency, a thermostat is a must-have feature for any heater. For radiant heaters, models with a 360 degree heating surface can heat larger spaces. If you need a forced-air heater, models with ceramic elements tend to be more efficient.
Are space heaters a fire hazard?
Space heaters are implicated in about 25,000 residential fires every year. To ensure proper safety, always follow the manufacturer's usage instructions and fill out the warranty card to receive informational updates from the manufacturer. Also, look for extra safety features such as an automatic shutoff switch that can shut down the unit if, for example, it gets upended. In addition, choose a model where the heating element is adequately enclosed within the unit.
Sneek peek of the floor
After a month delay waiting on the heating contractor to come back and
install the radiant tubes and reconnect the system, everything else started
to roll along. The hardwood guy (came from a recommendation from a client
of mine) was awesome. Just about a week later, and the final coat was
going on. His price for everything was less then we paid for the
prefinished flooring the first time around. then I needed to beg a couple of
nephews and a friend to help lay the floor (Thanks Brad, Dan & Paul.. Boy I
hope I didn't forget anyone else who laid it. Well, Dave helped install the
tubes that time also.)
Geothermal Heat/Cool Convector
The Multi-Aqua wall-hung convector is installed in a customer home to provide heating and cooling from the geothermal powered heat pump chiller. These are used to supplement radiant in-floor heat and provide cooling in hydronic geothermal installations.
