Most of these are heated with a water based or steam based boiler system. The boiler can be either fossil fuel (oil, propane or natural gas) or electric.
Most of these types of heating systems in our geographic area have been in place for many years. There are very few radiant style system installed in new homes these days due to the significant upfront costs.
Radiant systems are intricate systems and should be worked on, managed and maintained by trained professionals. Each type of heat emitter potentially requires a different water temperature to heat a given area and need special attention to ensure that all components are operating properly.
