In floor heating is a heating method used in homes, driveways and basements. It uses a series of inter-connected tubes underneath you flooring, which provides heat to the surface of the floor. These tubes can be either hydronic or electric. Both good options, just the differences are that the hydronic is water based and connected to your central boiler, whereas the electric based in floor heating is powered by electricity.
Radiant Heating: Hydronic, Electric
A hydronic system uses a dedicated water heater or a boiler (or even your existing water heater) as a heat source. A circulating pump moves the hot water through the PEX tubing and back to the heater.
Uses electric resistance cables to produce heat. The most popular style features cables embedded in thin mats that can be installed under tile, stone, engineered wood, and laminate floors. Electric heating mats are good for retrofits.
