Radiant Heating Systems in Santa Fe, NM
While a furnace is a nice way to heat air for a home, it’s not the only method of heating available. In fact, many homes cannot install forced-air central heating and must look for another way. Thankfully, radiant heating—which does not rely on a set of ducts and vents—is one of the most comforting ways to heat a home.

Radiant Heater Installation
A radiant heating system typically uses hot water to heat the home, which is why we may refer to it as "hydronic heating." A hydronic heating system requires two main components: the boiler or water heater that produces the heat and the piping that circulates it around the home. Some houses will also have radiators or baseboard heaters, but this is not always necessary.
An in–wall or in–floor hydronic heating system allows heat to radiate into the room in a way that simply cannot be accomplished by forced–air heating. However, because pipes must be installed carefully, this is not an easy task to accomplish. It’s often recommended only for new homes or major remodels. No matter what, it’s so important that your radiant heating system is installed by experts in the field, so contact our experienced team!
The Benefits of Radiant Heating
Radiant heating is not for every home. If you already have a furnace or heat pump, you probably don’t need the upgrade, which will be time–consuming and costly. If you’re looking for something new, however, there are so many reasons to factor in radiant heating to your decision.
- Radiant heating is so comfortable because heat radiates directly to the people and objects in the room, rather than just filling the air.
- Boilers are highly efficient as heat is retained better via water than via the air.
- In–wall and in–floor heating is hidden from view and also stay quiet.
- Boilers are durable, long–lasting, and need few repairs throughout their lifespans.
Radiant Heater Services in Santa Fe
As we mentioned above, radiant heating systems run into few problems throughout their lifespans. However, that does not make them invincible. You may need to have a boiler descaled at some point or repair a faulty ignition system or pump. And of course, no boiler will last forever and will need replacement at some point. We’re here to provide fast service for any of your radiant heating repair needs.
There are ways to prevent repairs for your radiant heater, though. The best way to do it is to trust a professional for boiler system maintenance once a year. That way, you’ll find out whether any component is on the brink of failure, so you can get those repairs completed faster. You’ll also receive an inspection so you know the heater is safe.
