Bott Mechanical Company – Creatherm

“I would highly recommend Creatherm to others. I’m an industrial electrical and mechanical contractor, and have used Creatherm for multiple slab heating projects. It is easy to work with — one man can carry bundles around, place and install barrier PEX into the formed channels, saving man hours over other brands requiring additional manpower. It’s a superior product to other brands with an ROI built into it. Also, Creatherm is readily available when you need it and a great company to do business with. Cameron always answers his phone and is available when you need help.”

“As a professional in the home energy business, I know the importance of using the right products in order to achieve the best energy ratings. So when it came time to build my own home, I went with Creatherm. It’s the best product I’ve found out there. The energy properties of radiant heating combined with the ease of installation made perfect sense to me. And installation was great! My wife helped me lay the installation panels down, and the whole process went very smoothly. I’ve installed radiant pipe the other way, and it was a big headache, a real nightmare. To me, Creatherm is a great product all the way around.”

Retrofitting Hydronic Heating into an Uninsulated Basement Slab

Taken from: ProTrade Craft for Residential Construction Pros 05/23/2016

Retrofitting in-floor heat is a great way to warm up a chilly basement bathroom. But unless you have insulation under the heating system, your customers are going to spend fat stacks of Benjies heating the earth every month.

Step by step:A2A59FF6-CC30-48B7-B6E3-7B94C3D64AAE

To keep the heat where you want it, cut out the slab before installing the heating system. Dig deep enough to allow for gravel, insulation, and a slab on top. Cover the earth with compacted gravel to support the slab and keep water from wicking in. Reinforced plastic over the gravel stops water vapor.
Rigid insulation comes next surrounding the new slab on all five sides.

You will need some sort of steel reinforcement, either wire mesh or rebar and then install the hydronic tubing. Pour the slab over the tubing, let it cure, and cover the whole assembly with flooring—and be confident that your customers Benjies will stay in the bank.
