Calling this past winter “brutal” would probably be an accurate statement for most of North America. Massive storms, record low temperatures and snowfall swept across the vast majority of the continent.
In this installment of Warmboard Works, we spoke to Chris Walker of Christopher Developments, a luxury home design and build firm in Victoria BC. Read what he had to say about his experience with Warmboard and crew.
"The whole Warmboard crew and experience were great. Sean McStay, the Regional manager for my area was informative, responsive, and extremely helpful. I really can't emphasize enough how enjoyable it was to deal with Sean.
As you look into the future, do you imagine living in the same home through your golden years? While assisted living communities are a great option for some older people, many hope to maintain a comfortable lifestyle in their own houses.
One of the first things that you may notice about Warmboard is the 12 inch spacing of our tubing channels. Other systems have tubing spaced every 6, 7 or 9 inches. So many wonder why Warmboard tubing channels aren’t closer together.
Warmboard is able to use tubing every 12 inches because of our superior conductivity. Warmboard is 2-5x more conductive than other radiant systems. Like any metal surface, Warmboard heats up quickly and tranfers that energy faster and more evenly to the interior space.
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.
When the Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago, IL, decided to construct a house - on museum grounds - that could demonstrate the current state-of-the-art in intelligent sustainable housing, radiant heat was an obvious choice towards that goal. The Museum calls this exhibit, Smart Home: Green + Wired.
