Radiant floor heating is a great solution for parts of the United States with moderate climates like Florida. It allows for a gentle distribution of heating during cooler months, and doesn’t require unsightly heating elements like baseboard heating or vents. However, one of the reasons why some homeowners have hesitated to use this method of heating in their homes is due to the potential for frustration and expense when repairs are needed. Some believe that the entire flooring would need to be ripped up to perform any significant repairs.
While it’s true that for very widespread issues, that may be the case, there are methods for identifying problems with radiant floor heating that don’t involve tearing your home apart. An infrared camera can be used by a professional to diagnose areas of the heating system that are exceptionally hot or exceptionally cold. This helps you to identify exactly which elements are experiencing issues, and these can be repaired more selectively.
