Because of it’s high conductivity, Warmboard’s 12 on center tubing outperforms other panels using 6 on center tubing.
Grand Park, [Co.] is committed to creating a community that sets new standards for quality in Grand County…Grand Park has incorporated the practices of green building into the first neighborhood…One of the most luxurious features in the homes is the use of Warmboard radiant heat. Widely accepted as the most comfortable, healthy and energy efficient form of heat, Warmboard is especially attractive because its systems are easily zoned and have a fast response time, reducing energy usage by heating only the occupied rooms or regions…Because of it’s high conductivity, Warmboard’s 12″ on center tubing outperforms other panels using 6″ on center tubing. This spacing also results in lower material usage. It replaces a traditional plywood sub-floor, further reducing wood usage while its high conductivity reduces the amount of tubing and manifolds needed. - Kirsten Laraby, Grand Park Co., Marketing Director
Warmboard heats the 3500 square foot home with a 75 gal LP gas water heater set at only 95 degrees.
I love Warmboard. The tubing went down really well. The layouts that Warmboard provided were great. What is most impressive is that the water temperatures I run my system at are extremely low and response time is extremely fast, even with all hardwood and tile floors. Warmboard’s efficiency proved true. The original design takeoff from the engineer was designed in accordance with a slab system, calling for set-back controls and a high efficiency boiler, however none of those setback controls were needed. Warmboard heats the 3500 square foot home with a 75 gal LP gas water heater set at only 95 degrees. The homeowner is extremely pleased. I would absolutely use Warmboard again, in fact I will use it every chance I get. No problems, just awesome. - Don Moore, Integrity Plumbing, Florence, OR
Our Warmboard system is operating as efficiently as advertised.
We're very happy with the Warmboard and are recommending it to anyone considering radiant heating. As you know we did quite a bit of the installation work ourselves. Our Warmboard system is operating as efficiently as advertised. - John B., Durango, CO
That is a huge savings!
Theoretically, it just seems smarter to have heat on top, rather than below the subfloor. The people involved in my new home project did a great job. I installed a boiler with a sensor that assesses the exterior temperature, allowing us to really control the fuel costs. I am convinced the savings offset the cost of the Warmboard system. For example, our winter weather can drop to 20 degrees below zero, and in our previous home fuel heating with propane was costing us six to seven thousand dollars a year, this year it cost only one thousand dollars. That is a huge savings! The design documents Warmboard supplied were excellent, and we have 11 zones in our home. Also, as a builder I recognize that Warmboard reduces labor costs, and since you know where the tubing is, repairs are simple. The Warmboard system just makes sense! - Chuck Verderber, Fairmont, VT
The Warmboard radiant system is perfect.
The Warmboard radiant system is perfect. Quiet, invisible, and comfortable. Thanks for your help - it all came off without a hitch. The system continues to perform well and our heating bills are substantially lower than last year. We're very happy with our decision to use Warmboard.- Darren D., Seattle, WA
