Improperly Installed Radiant Floor Heat

Here’s a comment from one of our customers about their radiant floor heat which was initially installed incorrectly.

“We recently had an energy audit done on our home by Newell and Crathern weatherization. We discovered that our radiant floor heating system wasn’t properly insulated. We’re always felt like it under perform and never quite met our expectations. Come to find out the people that installed the system didn’t know how they were supposed to insulate it. Newell and Crathern installed a foil faced rigid foam below are radiant tubing leaving a 1 inch gap for better convection in the floor. This was a couple weeks ago we now feel night and day difference as to how our radiant floor feels. The entire experience was great the energy auditor was very knowledgeable and the crew that installed the new insulation were very friendly and clean and professional.”
