What is concrete slab heating system?
The concrete slab heating system is a radiant heating system where you install pipelines under the floor or between the floor joints of the property. As you switch on the heating system it starts generating hot water through these underneath pipelines. The pipelines get heated soon and they transfer the heat to your floor and then to the entire home or office space.
It is suggested to install such concrete slab heating system right during your renovation or construction period rather than installing it at a later stage. Initially, the installation cost of the concrete slab heating can cost you little more, but you can save a lot in future. You do not need to spend any additional maintenance cost on these heating systems and it will save your power consumption costs too.
