Radiant Heating FAQs

How do I know it will last?2023-08-31T18:47:53+00:00

Uponor PEX tubing products were designed over 30 years ago specifically for use in radiant floor heating systems. In fact, Uponor PEX tubing is one of the most thoroughly tested plastic tubing product in the world. To back up their extensive history of successful radiant floor heating systems, Uponor offers a 25 year tubing warranty. This ensures today’s home and building owners that their heating system will last.

If I use radiant floor heating, can I still have air conditioning?2023-08-31T18:47:29+00:00

eparate heating and cooling systems actually make the most sense resulting in optimal comfort year round. Radiant floor heating keeps heat where it is needed most. Air conditioning ductwork, therefore, does not need to be as extensive and can be placed more strategically than ductwork used for both heating and air conditioning. JV Mechanical can design and install a heating and cooling system that best meets your comfort needs and your budget.

Is radiant floor heating more expensive than the alternatives?2023-08-31T18:47:09+00:00

When homeowners or building owners are making a decision on the type of heating system in their home or commercial project, they should consider the difference between more expensive and too expensive. Radiant floor heating is slightly more expensive to install than other heating methods, but the benefits make it worth the additional cost. Not only will radiant floor heating keep you more comfortable than any other heating system, but it will increase the value of your home or building, and save you money on your monthly heating bill. Most people do not hesitate to spend a little bit more money to upgrade their windows or wood floors, but think little about the comfort system in their home or commercial project. Shouldn’t your comfort be a high priority? The benefits of radiant floor heating are definitely worth the extra money.

What makes radiant floor heating so comfortable?2023-08-31T18:46:25+00:00

Radiant floor heating controls the rate at which our bodies lose heat better than any other heating method. This is because radiant floor heating heats objects in the same way that the sun heats the earth. Radiant energy warms the floor and the objects in contact with the floor. This prevents your body from losing heat to cold objects in the room. It is a scientific fact that heat energy is always drawn to cold objects. When we stand on a cold floor or next to a cold wall, we feel cold. This has nothing to do with the air temperature, and everything to do with the fact that heat is being lost from our bodies to warm up the cold objects around us. This heat loss is controlled with radiant floor heating. The radiant warmth keeps us comfortable at a lower thermostat setting.

I found JV Mechanical through a Google search maybe a year ago when I needed someone to come out and fix our water pressure issue. Normally I would just call a family member to come over and do a DIY fix but I needed someone here fast. They were so easy to deal with in regard to scheduling the appointment, troubleshooting and fixing the issue, to billing and payment, that I decided to call them back a handful of times now (instead of DIY) to do other work with our heating and AC systems. The technicians always arrive on time and are professional and knowledgeable about what they do. At first I thought maybe they were kind of young to be doing this sort of work, but age makes no difference when you understand how systems work inside and out! And I’ve actually learned a lot about how our water pipes and AC systems operate just by asking a lot of questions to the techs. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a local reliable company in water piping or HVAC (or anything else they do)!

We needed our units cleaned and serviced. The representative did an outstanding job. He did not have to but he showed us what he was going to do and then did a super job cleaning the filters and the units. 5 Stars for sure

I recently had a fantastic experience. I was having a "failure to ignite" problem with my propane heater. Mike (ML) visited a couple of times, but the problem persisted. On the last visit he decided to contact the manufacturer. The unit was out of warranty but because of Mike's persistence the manufacturer's technical representative offered to send a new gas valve, orifice burner and cassette burner free. While this was being pursued over a number of weeks Nisa Gelinas, Administrative Assistant, kept me posted as to the progress of the negotiations with the manufacturer. I cannot say enough good things about the Mike, Nisa and the company that made an extra effort to assist me with this problem. Most companies would have told me that they cannot resolve the problem, but the staff of JV Mechanical Contractors went the extra mile for me, and I truly appreciated it. Bob Falter, Brookfield, MA
