In-Floor Heating Systems

Hydronic Radiant Floor Heating is comprised of a system of pipes laid within a thermal mass (typically a concrete floor) that carries hot water into specific rooms or areas, dispersing the heat through the floor surface. Comparable to warming yourself in the sun, this type of heating warms objects instead of raising the temperature in the air.

HeatLink has been manufacturing hydronic radiant systems for over three decades and their products have heated everything from homes to convention centres, giving you the assurance that when you use Gray Mechanical, your heating system will be built right and built to last!

The Advantages of Hydronic
Radiant Floor Heating Systems

Hydronic Radiant Floor Heating Systems provide many advantages over hot air heating systems in the home and are also great for supplementing existing hot air systems in high traffic areas. The in-floor heat is even and comfortable, as the concrete floor levels out temperature fluctuations. The floor is warm to the touch and there are no drafts. The warmest air is at floor level, not wasted at the ceiling, and there is reduced heat loss through the ceiling and walls. The system is also very quiet, with the only noise generated by the small circulatory pump and the oil or gas burner. All in all, the system is virtually inaudible. Hydronic Radiant Systems are also very clean, with no ducts or radiators to contribute to dust collection and movement. For anyone who suffers from allergies, this reduction in dust movement can make a huge difference! Most importantly, it puts the heat where you are and allows you to maintain a colder overall temperature in other areas of your house while keeping the rooms you use most cozy, saving you money on heating and energy costs.

Garage Floor

Gray Mechanical can install in-floor heating systems in most new or existing homes, given a few conditions:

  • That the building structure can support the additional weight of a concrete or cement over-pour.
  • That the underside of the subfloor is accessible.
  • If being installed in a basement, that there is enough height for a concrete over-pour above the insulation.
