Radiant Heating

Indoor Radiant Heating Systems in Santa Fe

Most people, when they think of a heating system, think of a forced-air system such as a gas furnace or a heat pump. While those are perfectly valid and effective ways to keep a home heated, they are not the only option. It’s important that you take a look at the entire field to find the heating system that’s best for your needs. That is why James’ Plumbing & Heating offers comprehensive radiant heating system services throughout Santa Fe, NM. If you need a radiant heating system installed, repaired, maintained, or replaced, we can help you out. Call today to schedule an appointment with one of our heating experts.

What Is Radiant Heating?

Radiant heating is a method of home heating that relies on transmitting thermal energy directly instead of using air to circulate it. There are two main types of radiant heating: electric and hydronic. Both operate on similar principles, they just use different methods to do it. An electric radiant heating system runs an electrical current through heating elements installed under the floors throughout the home. Heat from the elements radiates up through the floor and into the room, evenly heating it for hours with relatively little energy expenditure. Hydronic radiant heating is much the same, but it uses a boiler and water pipes instead of a generator and heating elements.

Advantages of Radiant Heating in Santa Fe

Radiant heating offers many different advantages, namely energy efficiency and comfort. Warm air from a furnace or heat pump will rise to the ceiling of a room and sink as it cools. This often creates uncomfortable hot and cold spots throughout the house. Radiant heating keeps all of its heat near the floor of the room, where it does the most good. Water also makes a much better thermal medium than air does. It absorbs more heat and retains it for longer, which means you can warm your home using less energy for longer periods of time.

Radiant heating systems also don’t have to worry about duct leaks, which are rampant among traditional forced–air heating systems. The U.S. Department of Energy has estimated that the average forced–air system loses as much as 30% of its total output to duct leaks. That’s nearly a third of the total output from the system that ends up going to waste. Radiant heating systems don’t use ducts, which means they retain all of that output.

Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

For the third time, I am impressed with your employees. They were on-time, quickly understood my problem and almost immediately discovered that my problem wasn't as bad as I thought. They were courteous with me, explained everything as they researched the problem, and went the extra mile by offering assistance with any other plumbing problems I might have. I feel a big relief that they were able to help me. I think they were terrific.

Excellent Quality and Value




Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

James' Plumbing replaced our old furnace, added an air conditioner, and installed a new water heater. Over a period of 3 days, James, himself, came by several times per day to get the work started and to check on the progress. He discovered several deficiencies in our old system and corrected them immediately. His employees were all respectful, wore masks, and always left the area clean. I recommend James' Plumbing highly.


Outstanding Service




Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

They called me back first thing in the morning after I left a non-emergency message late the night before. They fit me in same-day so that our family would have access to a shower for the long holiday weekend. Isaac also noticed that our hot water setting was way too high and adjusted the hot water heater accordingly for safety. James’ has done an emergency call for us on a weekend in the past. They are the best!


Great response time




Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

We could not regulate our new combination boiler for our hot water and floor heating last fall. James came out and fixed the problem when the original contractor would not because they had already been paid. Recently the middle of May we did not have constant hot water. It took a couple of call backs but James stayed on it to determine the recent influx of moths had clogged the heat exchanger. Great service and certainly appreciate their follow through.

Their expertise is matched by their determination to get things right and to satisfy the needs of the customer. We were extremely well served by James senior and by the team of Isaac and Thomas.. One other thing that distinguishes this outfit, honesty, from top to bottom. We recommend them highly.
