Cost-Effective Heating Systems

Save the planet, save some money - or even a lot of money

Looking for cost-effective heating systems? Research has shown that radiant heating is about 25% more energy efficient than forced air, which can add up to some significant cost savings. But with Warmboard, that percentage is even higher due to greater control and lower water temperatures.

{... 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 $6,000-7,000 a year, this year it cost only $1,000.
That is a huge savings! ... – Chuck V., Fairmont, VT}

Just as your car gets better gas mileage when your engine isn’t working as hard, or your phone keeps a longer battery life when not processing as much data, heating equipment, like boilers and water heaters, run more efficiently at lower temperatures, amplifying the savings. In other words, when these appliances run at lower temperatures, they become more energy-efficient, cost-efficient heating systems. At the same time, their lifespan is extended, ensuring your investment lasts longer.

  • Warmboard is ideal for homes using alternative energy sources
  • Today, more and more people are choosing alternative, eco-friendly, low-cost heating options such as geothermal and solar. These systems are limited however, unable to produce water above 120ºF without additional hardware. Since Warmboard is regularly using water below this threshold, interfacing is ideal. Other systems will require additional hardware to heat the water into the 140-180ºF range.

  • For architects looking for the ultimate in energy-efficient, cost-effective heating solutions, Warmboard does not disappoint. Warmboard radiant heat has been used in numerous Net Zero homes throughout the country. And with the potential to earn up to 15 LEED points, Warmboard can be an excellent tool towards achieving LEED Gold or Platinum. Because of their improved floor heating energy consumption, Warmboard radiant panels have also been used in numerous Solar Decathlon projects, several earning top marks.

    With Warmboard’s radiant floor heating, you enjoy all the perks of even, controlled heating, as well as better air quality — all at cost-cutting rates that lower your heating expenses now and into the future.
