KiTEC Pipe for Radiant Heating System
The basic advantage of radiant heating system over conventional heating system is better temperature distribution leading to 30% saving in energy. Forced air systems distribute heat unevenly with hot air rising to the ceiling. This creates a "Warm Head – Cold Feet" sensation which is not what the body likes.
Warm floors allow you to heat the extremities – feet, legs – and provide you with greater personal comfort at a reduced room temperature.
The same room with forced air heating may require air to be heated as much as 20o
hotter in order to provide the same level of overall warmth to your body.
KiTEC piping is being exclusively used for floor radiant heating system for following properties:
Normally 1216 and 1620 KiTEC pipes are used. Loop length is a function of room size, manifold location and supply/return temperature differential. The maximum recommended length of continuous tubing from a supply and return manifold arrangement should be as follows:
