What to Know about Radiant Heating Systems

September 9, 2016

Radiant heating system usually don’t require a lot of repairs or maintenance, but these efficient heating systems do need attention before cold weather sets in!
At Affordable Service, our technicians are highly trained in radiant heaters and boilers. Whether your radiant system is in-floor heating or baseboard heating, our staff can repair, replace or upgrade your radiant system. We’ll inspect and ensure that your venting, gas piping, expansion tank, copper lines, valves and controls are properly working. We can also check the water quality within the radiant heating tubing, bleed the radiant system of air, and check that the circulating pump is working correctly.
Some homeowners keep their radiant heat systems running year round, turning the temperature down to its lowest point during the summer; that means the boiler doesn’t have to be restarted in time for the heating season.
For those who turn off the boiler, or homeowners who purchase a house with radiant floor heating, it’s recommended that a licensed and experienced heating technician start the boiler and test the system before using it. Some areas of Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Corrales and nearby towns have very hard water which can create an issue with radiant heat, so it’s a good idea to have the water quality evaluated so that the internal valves and tubing are not affected by sediment or water deposits.
