Love radiant heating in your bathroom? It’s not new technology. The Romans developed a similar system in which the floors were laid out as a series of stone slabs raised up on pedestals with a heat source located below the floor.

Of course we’ve come a long way with radiant heating in 2015. We specialize in Energy efficiency upgrades.  A new high-efficiency heating system can often cut your fuel bills and your furnace’s pollution output in half.
