There is constant chatter about what it means to go green and the best ways to do so. It's become clear that people are interested in reducing their carbon footprint and an interesting movement has been gaining popularity in the USA - passive houses.
It’s not surprising when architects specify radiant heating and cooling in a renovation or new construction. It is however, quite an affirmation of the radiant concept when the firm specifies it for their own building.
While you might recognize Warmboard by its color, this is not the only “green” and sustainable part of Warmboard. We produce efficient, healthy products and are dedicated to reducing our impact on the environment. Below is a summary of what makes us green.

“We have found Warmboard's radiant heating subfloor to be a great solution for our clients. It's silent, worry-free, and comfortable. Clients tell us it's wonderful to feel comfortable in their houses without having to even think about climate control - there's no need for ducts and vents, blowing noisy air into the space; no need to worry about maintaining and cleaning a central air system, replacing filters, keeping the air 'balanced'...our clients give Warmboard rave reviews
