WIRSBO Heating Systems

More comfort for your money
Ordinary heating systems rely on air circulation to distribute heat. Because hot air rises, the warmth migrates and accumulates near the ceiling, causing forced air systems to work overtime to heat the occupied space. Radiant floor heat is more like the sun. It directly warms people and objects, so the warmth stays in your living space. It's true comfort while saving money on heating bills. Check out below how Wirsbo Radiant Floor Heating can improve the comfort of your home.

Comfort You Control
Radiant heat offers you comfort choices. Warm your entire house or just problem areas like the kitchen, bathroom, basement, or entryway. Whichever you choose, you'll be increasing your comfort today and your home's resale value in the future. Multiple thermostats can control your comfort and your costs by allowing you to turn down the temperature in rooms that are not in use. If you want, you can have a thermostat in every room.

From new homes to renovations, Wirsbo Radiant Floor Heating is the perfect addition to any home. Wirsbo tubing can be installed in standard concrete or poured floor underlayment. PEX tubing installed between the joists is an easy application which is great for retrofitting a home for comfort. For any project, reliable Wirsbo Radiant Floor Heating is an investment in comfort.

Design Tips

In very cold weather take special care to prevent water pipes becoming frozen. If you have a storage cistern in the roof space it will be sensible to open the hatch to allow some heat from the house to help keep the cistern from freezing.
