Radiant Heating Systems in Memphis, TN
Radiant heating is the alternative to the forced-air heating from furnaces and heat pumps. Most radiant heaters use hot water pumped from a boiler to raise the temperature of objects around the house. There are several benefits of using radiant heating, but they are uncommon in the Memphis area because they’re better suited to regions with more consistently cold weather.
Few contractors in Memphis, TN offer service for radiant heating systems, and this makes it tricky for homeowners who have a radiant heater to locate repair technicians. Automatic Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing is one of the select few contractors who work on boilers, radiant heating, and in-floor heating.

Radiant Heating Systems in Action
Furnaces are the most common central heating systems in our area. Furnace are forced-air systems, which means they raise the temperature of air and then use blower fans to push the air through the ventilation system to rooms. Radiant heating system are hydronic—they heat up water in a boiler and then circulate the water through pipes. The pipes terminate in radiators, baseboard heaters, or in-floor pipes. As the hot water raises the temperature of these objects, heat waves radiate into the space. There are a few kinds of radiant heaters that use electricity to generate heat, but these are uncommon because they are expensive to run.
