Warmboard radiant

Warmboard offers a comfortable, responsive and energy-smart radiant heating source for the home. The sustainably designed Warmboard system works by conducting heat from a waterfilled tube to the surface of the floor, which then radiates heat to the entire room, providing clean indoor air quality. This highly conductive design uses lower water temperatures than other radiant systems, which translates to cost savings and allows Warmboard to be used with any floor covering. Be sure to ask about Jeffrey Campbell, the Hydronic Comfort Specialist from Simply Radiant Heat, who utilizes his expertise with Warmboard to deliver high-quality design and installation of radiant heating systems.
