In this 7th episode of The Road to Net Zero, Rob Koci interviews NUDURA’s Gary Meine about his firm’s HYDROFOAM.
This product is used for hydronic radiant floor heating. Building codes require hydronic heating tubes to be installed on top of sheet foam anyway (to prevent energy dissipation). NUDURA’s “puck” design for its under-slab foam, as shown in this video, provides quick and easy routes for hydronic heating tubes to be installed WITHOUT the time-consuming element of hand-placed staples.
Hydronic radiant floor heating is all the rage these days for a number of reasons. First, it is a very efficient source of heat for a home. A room will heat more evenly when an entire floor is the heat source. Occupants of a room with hydronic radiant floor heating will feel more comfortable at a lower temperature setting on the thermostat, since the heat is being directly transferred to them through their feet. Contact your HVAC professional to have hydronic radiant floor heating installed on your next project.
