Sample text

The procedure for designing a hydronic radiant floor heating system may be outlined as follows: 1. Determine the total rate of heat loss per room in the structure. 2. Determine the available area for panels (loops) in each room. 3. Determine the output required by each panel to replace the heat loss. 4. Determine the required surface temperature for each panel. 5. Determine the required heat input to the panel (should equal heat output). 6. Determine the most efficient and economical means of sup- plying heat to the panel.

Insert the brass fitting into the end of the expanded PEX tube. 3. Use the expansion tool to pull the brass sleeve back over the PEX tube and fitting for a tight connection. FITTING SLEEVE 1 2 3 Compression Fitting 1. Slide the locking nut and split compression ring up the tubing. 2. Insert the tubing onto the compression fitting. 3. Tighten the nut onto the compression fitting snugly. 4. Re-tighten the fittings after the heat has been turned on and the hot water has circulated through the tubing.

The tubing is inserted in the panel grooves and set flush with the panel surface. Floor Coverings Floor covering materials reduce the amount of heat radiation rising into the room or space above the floor. The insulating properties of floor coverings must be considered when designing a hydronic or electric radiant floor heating system. Plush carpets and polyurethane carpet pads should not be installed over a radiant floor heating system. The same holds true for thick wood floors or multiple layers of plywood subfloors.
