Form #: 650-008
This chapter provides a brief history of radiant heating, as well as an overview of the basic principles and types of radiant heat. The concept of thermal mass is explained, and several common control options are introduced.
Form #: 650-009
This chapter describes the major differences between some of the more common heat sources in use today. “Traditional” heat sources, such as cast iron and copper fin-tube boilers, are contrasted with more efficient condensing boilers. Fuel sources, including electricity, oil, natural gas, and propane, are examined, as are “alternative” solar and geothermal systems.
Form #: 650-010
This chapter explores the various types of tubing used in radiant heating systems, and illustrates proper piping layouts. Both framed floor and concrete slab designs are covered, and the differences between hydronic radiant systems and electric radiant heat are explained.
Form #: 650-011
This chapter looks at the tubing options and main application profiles for snow-melting systems. Concrete slabs, brick pavers, and asphalt are all considered, as are turf-warming and frost protection systems. In addition, the property of refraction is explained as it relates to determining the freeze point of fluids used in exterior installations.
