Radiant Floor Design Service
Radiant Floor Design
Using state of the art CAD design software we can design & optimize the loop layout design so that you will be ensured there are not cold spots, and your radiant floor system will operate as efficiently as possible to cover the heating & cooling demands. Whether you are looking at hydronic heat in concrete, under floor joist, or as sub floor we can help. Proper sizing of the system starts with knowing the heat demand of your building. Our hydronic heating design service will ensure you project is a success.
Full Equipment Design – Our software will calculate the minimum required pump speeds required for each loop to optimize the supply and return water temperatures for comfort. We will give you the recommended pump sizes and can supply you with a complete radiant floor package system from the pumps, manifolds, actuators and zone controllers including WiFi Zone touch screen thermostats. Should you also wish to also cool you floors we can incorporate full radiant floor cooling to the system design.
How it works – Our Loop CAD radiant floor design starts by first understanding the heating design load of the house/building. This is needed so that the radiant floor loops will be able to meet the heating loss that occurs during the coldest days. In order to do this, we will require you to upload your building plans. Our design engineers will then contact you to review the plans and then first work on calculating a heating/cooling load using a Manual J calculation methodology. Once this is complete this information is feed into the Loop design software to help our designers with the layout the PEX loops, ensuring they match the calculated heating load. We will work with you to discuss any zoning requirement you may have in the design process. In the end you will have a complete material list of required parts as well as a map of the PEX piping layout.
