People and Radiant Heating Qualifications-Radiant Heat Experience

EXPERIENCE Perhaps one of the most important qualifications that a company can have is experience.  Radiantec has been in business since 1979 and we have done thousands of projects. That’s 40+ years of radiant heat experience!

In 1979, when Radiantec first started to offer radiant heating services, there were only two or three companies to choose from.

But now, you have many choices. It seems that new companies are coming (and going) almost every day. There are many reasons why we are still the best choice.

Early research project For the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE)

Radiantec  performed early research into the properties of solar collectors when they are connected to radiant heating systems. In the process we studied the properties of the various tubings with regard to heat exchange ability and flow resistance. We learned a lot and published two scientific papers for the International Solar Energy Society. We also generated a complete report for the U.S. DOE.

Radiantec has received numerous awards and been featured in several National magazines.

But solar heating is not for everyone.  Nevertheless, all of our customers benefit from knowledge that we gained about alternative energy.  Solar radiant heating is much more challenging than other forms of heating.  Great attention needs to be paid to efficiency and this knowledge is important today.

Radiantec Company maintains an ongoing program of research and development in order to learn more about radiant heating and to develop new products and applications.  This research benefits our customers with better, more efficient and more economical systems.

In our opinion, the application of radiant heating is at a high level, but there is room for improvement.  There are and probably always will be questions about the best way to insulate the structure so that the heat that you are paying for is going in the right direction.

There are additional questions about the value of aluminum heat emission plates and how they should be fabricated and how much they should be used.

We are gathering more information about the effects of floor covering on radiant output.

Feel free to consult with our techs about the latest results.  In some cases, we will test materials and applications for individuals.
