How to maximize the efficiency and comfort of radiant floor heating
February 4, 2015
Radiant Floor Heating is one of the fastest growing heating methods. The benefits of radiant floor heating are obvious to anyone who has been in a home with this heat. The warm floors provide an even, comfortable heat. The heat radiates throughout the entire space, is silent, and does not circulate dust.
Radiant floor heat provided by a high efficiency condensing boiler like the Prestige TriMax or the Challenger, is among the most efficient heating systems available. This system operates at lower system temperatures, which allows boilers to operate at their highest efficiency. Traditional boilers cannot operate at these lower temperatures. Traditional boilers must mix their high temperature supply with low temperature return water to bring the water down low enough to pass through the radiant floor. The Prestige TriMax’s burner design and stainless steel heat exchanger allows it to operate efficiently and provide supply water at precisely the right temperature. This allows the boiler to condense, providing the Prestige Trimax with an AFUE of 95%. Triangle Tube’s Condensing boilers operate with both natural gas and propane.
