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. 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 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

    As a small business owner myself I understand that sometimes things don’t go as planned w jobs. For me, how a company handles those moments is everything and I can’t say enough about Isaac and how he resolved our issue. He was professional, understanding, calm and proficient. He helped right the issue himself. I admire this type of leadership and highly recommend James Plumbing for commercial needs. Thank you!

    Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

    James Plumbing & Heating was a real lifesaver for us on a Friday afternoon. My husband and I were engaged in numerous house projects when we noticed our boiler was out Friday morning. My husband attempted to re-light the pilot, but it wasn't staying lit. We tried several HVAC companies, all who were booked for weeks. James placed us on a waiting list, and shortly thereafter, Carlos came and replaced our thermocouple, promptly and professionally. We had never used James Plumbing & Heating before, but we certainly will in the future. Thank you so much!

    Thank you for such prompt service. Thomas is a real asset to your company. He listened to my concerns, he fixed the problem, didn’t leave a mess, knew what he was doing, was professional and courteous all throughout. I asked him where he learned the trade and he said James plumbing helped with cost of education and provided training, which made me very pleased you invested in your employees. Thank you, I would not hesitate to use James Plumbing again, and will send my friends your way. Suzanne

    Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

    Having my hot water heater break during a cold snap, and then finding out it was leaking water everywhere was a nightmare. But James and Isaac worked super hard to fix the problem and ended up installing a much quieter and simpler option!
