Offering Expert Care & 24/7 Emergency Service in Nassau County, Queens & NYC
The human body loses warmth in three ways. The first is convection, which occurs as a result of air currents passing over the body. Approximately 30% of our heat loss occurs through convection. The second way is radiation, or the transfer of energy from a warm surface to a cool one. Approximately 50% of our heat loss occurs as a result of radiation. Finally, there is evaporation. This is the mechanism at work when we sweat – the moisture evaporates off of the body, taking some of the heat with it.
Radiant heat increases the room surface-area temperatures to reduce heat loss through radiation. Furthermore, radiant heat does not rely on air movement. Thus, approximately 80% of heat loss from a body can be controlled by radiant heat. By installing a radiant heating system in your home or business, you can achieve comfort at a fraction of the cost!

Cost of Radiant Heating
There are several factors that impact the final cost of installing radiant heating on your property.
These factors include:
- Job size: Bigger jobs take more time and, in general, cost more money
- Types of flooring: Installation methods vary depending on floor type. Carpet and wood floors may require some additional labor that results in a higher installation cost. In general, mud floor installations are the least expensive.
- Retrofit applications: Is the floor already down and you are contemplating putting radiant underneath the floor, in the ceiling below? This method is generally more labor intensive and drives up the price of a job.
- Boiler: Are you doing a large radiant job and contemplating a high-efficiency boiler? Perhaps a condensing boiler? This may increase the initial installation cost but will cut down your fuel bill significantly. One should consider how long they are planning to live in their current residence when making such decisions.
