If you’re looking into a radiant heating system in the Coeur d’Alene area, Storm Mechanical has the experience you need.

How Radiant Heating Works 

Radiant heating systems depend on radiant heat transfer. This is the transfer of heat directly from a hot surface to people and objects in a room. Heat is applied directly to your floor or to wall or ceiling panels. The radiation of the heat is spread throughout the room. There are a number of benefits to this style of home heating, and a variety of systems available for installation and replacement.


Radiant heating comes in a few different forms. To decide which is best for your home or office, call the professionals at Storm Mechanical. Our heating and air conditioning team will help you understand the different installation and replacement options to make sure that you get the right radiant heating system for your home.

Hydronic Radiant Systems

Hydronic systems use very little electricity to operate. They can be powered by many different heating options, including gas, oil or wood–fired boilers and even solar water heaters. Talk to a professional to decide which heating source is best for a hydronic system in your home.

Radiant Floor Heating

Radiant floor heating offers three main types of heating options.

  1. Air heated radiant floors use air to carry heat. Because air cannot hold much heat, especially compared to liquids, this is not usually the most cost effective or efficient option.
  2. Electric radiant floors usually call for electric cables to be built directly into the floor. These systems are most cost effective when there is a thick, substantial mass, such as a concrete floor, due to the high costs of electricity.
  3. Hydronic radiant floors are by far the most popular, and usually most efficient, of the radiant floor heating options. Piping is installed beneath your floor, and heated water from the boiler is pumped through the system. These systems can easily be zoned controlled, adding to their efficiency.  

A quality radiant heating installation or replacement service from Storm Mechanical offers many benefits. They are more energy efficient than heating your home with baseboards. Also, they do not depend on forced air. They are not subject, then, to the energy losses associated with forced air, and the lack of moving air can be advantageous for residents with allergies. The low electricity requirements of hydronic systems paired with the variety of heating options make radiant system installation an option worth considering. Call Storm Mechanical today to learn about the radiant heating system installation and replacement services available in your area.
