Radiant Floor Inspection in Ottawa & Montreal
Radiant floor heating and cooling systems are the latest trend in home renovations and upgrades, providing an energy-efficient way to keep warm in the winter and stay cool in the summer.
Unfortunately, as warm and comfortable as radiant floors are, they are known to malfunction. And because radiant floors aren’t cheap, it can be frustrating when they don’t work properly. At Mold Busters, radiant floor inspections are a fast, simple and non-destructive way of performing regular maintenance of your radiant floors and ensuring they’re working efficiently.
Getting your radiant floors checked is also a great idea if your warranty is about to expire and you want to maximize the value of your initial investment.
So don’t wait.

Types of radiant flooring
Modern under-floor systems can be classified into two main types: hydronic and electric.
Hydronic systems use hot water to heat your floors while electric systems use electrical resistance elements to provide under-floor heating.
Because electric systems are not very cost-effective (requiring a lot of power to operate), they are not as popular as hot water systems. They are, however, easier to install as you do not have to tear up the existing flooring.
Both systems can provide localized heating and whole-building heating; however, only hydronic systems can be used for cooling. Also, both systems need to be installed with caution and by experts to ensure optimal performance, longevity and safety.
