The design of a radiant floor heating system goes beyond just heat calculations. The structure itself must be examined and correct materials must be used with this type of heat. This webinar will look into material compatibilities when installing radiant floor heat along with simple design methods.

Learning Objectives

  1. Review the compatibility of materials for the installation of radiant floor heat. 
  2. Review the construction limitation for installing radiant floor heat. 
  3. Understand the how radiant floor heating can impact the finish materials and potentially cause occupant discomfort.
  4. Review standard installation procedures which can formulate an outcome that will be comfortable to the occupant.
