At Radiantec, we are not just fooling around with solar heat.
We have done the homework and have fully developed mature
technology that makes economic and environmental sense.


In 1979, when Radiantec first started to offer radiant heating services, there were only two or three companies to choose from.

But now, you have many choices. It seems that new companies are coming (and going) almost every day. There are many reasons why Radiantec is still the best choice.

  • RADIANTEC has done tens of thousands of radiant heating jobs.
  • We have done residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural projects.
  • We have done heating cooling, and snow melting projects.
  • We have put tubing in floors, ceilings, walls and driveways.
  • We have done heating cooling, and snow melting projects.

Radiantec Company performed early research into the properties of solar collectors when they are connected to radiant heating systems.  In the process we studied the properties of the various tubings with regard to heat exchange ability and flow resistance.  We learned a lot and published two scientific papers for the International Solar Energy Society.  We also generated a complete report for the United States Department of Energy.

But solar heating is not for everyone.  Nevertheless, all of our customers benefit from knowledge that we gained about alternative energy.  Solar radiant heating is much more challenging than other forms of heating.  Great attention needs to be paid to efficiency and this knowledge is important today.

Our new research is looking into all aspects of radiant heating with an emphasis on energy efficiency.

In our opinion, the application of radiant heating is at a high level, but there is room for improvement.  There are and probably always will be questions about the best way to insulate the structure so that the heat that you are paying for is going in the right direction.

There are additional questions about the value of aluminum heat emission plates and how they should be fabricated and how much they should be used.

We are gathering more information about the effects of floor covering on radiant output.

Feel free to consult with our technicians about the latest results.  In some cases, we will test materials and applications for individuals.
