Radiant Floor Insulation - For Under Concrete & Between Joists

Radiant Floor Insulation — Under Floor Insulation

Floor Insulation (also called under floor insulation) for radiant floor heating has become very popular in new home and commercial building applications. Adding radiant floor heating insulation is the most cost effective approach long term. Reflective concrete insulation is tougher and easier to install than traditional foam board insulation that easily cracks and breaks and is made to resist corrosion. The reflective foil used for radiant floor heat insulation reflects 97% of radiant heats rays back toward the flooring, allowing your heating system to operate more efficiently. See how reflective foil insulation can be used with the following construction methods:

Benefits of Insulating Radiant Floors with Reflective Foil:

  • Effective in extreme temperatures-both hot and cold
  • Strong but clean, lightweight and flexible
  • Easy installation
  • Safe to handle with no special clothing or breathing equipment
  • Cuts and installs easier than fiberglass
  • Reflects 97% of Radiant Heat
  • Easily stapled, nailed or glued into place
  • Waterproof, Non absorbent surface

Under Floor Insulation Options

Radiant floor heating is becoming more common in new home construction. There are many floor insulation options—concrete floor insulation, under floor insulation, crawl space floor insulation, sub floor insulation, mobile home floor insulation, in floor heating insulation, hardwood floor insulation, insulation between floor joists, floating floor insulation, and even soundproof acoustic floor insulation, to name a few.

Installing floor insulation is not a new technique, for it has been in use since the times of ancient Rome. There are many aspects to consider with insulation for radiant floor heating. If you’re looking for cheap floor insulation or diy floor insulation, reflective foil is a cost effective option. Determining floor insulation cost should also account for lower energy bills each month. Radiant floor heating is popular because of many factors. Sub floor insulation creates a comfortable and warm floor that will have you walking barefoot all winter long. Air quality is improved because radiant heat does not stir dust particles or remove moisture from the air like traditional forced air systems. Radiant floor insulation is safe because it has no surface that could produce burns. Under floor insulation is also unobtrusive and environmentally conscious.

In order to achieve and receive all of these benefits of floor insulation, under floor insulation must be installed properly. Radiant heat by its nature, will want to radiate in all directions which is why it is important to use the right radiant floor heating products. EcoFoil radiant barrier is best to insulate and redirect the heat to its intended living space.

Starting with the lowest level, radiant heat can be used for concrete. Without proper slab insulation, much of the radiant heat will be lost to the grade beneath. This is why it is important to use EcoFoil’s under concrete bubble insulation. Not only will EcoFoil radiant floor slab insulation provide insulation of R3.8, it also will reflect up to 97% of the heat upwards back into the living space. Depending on your climate zone, you may or may not need to pair EcoFoil’s under concrete barrier with XPS foam insulation. Simply install your radiant barrier on top of the XPS then install the concrete and heating system. This radiant floor insulation also acts as an effective vapor barrier with Applications
