Radiant heating systems are based on cross-linked polyethylene (or PEX). This is why many European homes can have warm rooms even in the winter.
Radiant heating systems most often use underfloor heating. The quality of the pipes is crucial to the success of underfloor heating. Insulated PEX pipes for outdoor boilers are the key to this success. PEX is the main material used to make most of these pipes. It is versatile and lasts a long time. It can withstand extreme temperatures.
The best quality PEX pipes will keep the floor warmer for longer periods of time by keeping it warm. Concrete is then applied to the pipes. Copper pipes can be susceptible to corrosion. You won't have to worry about this if you are using PEX pipes.
PEX is also more economical. The users also benefit from the ability to conserve energy. Radiant heating systems can reduce fuel consumption by as much as 15% to 20%. This heating system is very popular due to its safety and comfort. This heating system is considered to be natural and does not adversely affect the user's health.
This radiant heating system, and especially the floor heating one, would not be possible without the use of PEX. If you plan to install this heating system in the home, then you should pay attention to the quality and fitting of the PEX pipe.
