Radiant Floor Heat Fired by Used Oil from Your Shop

Radiant floor heat has many benefits that go far beyond mere comfort, although there is no heat as pleasant. If your business generates at least 500 gallons of used oil per year and you are building a new facility between 3,000 and 100,000 sq. ft., a radiant floor heating system could benefit every member of your workforce by cutting heating costs and creating a healthier and safer work environment.

"…Our new shop stays comfortable in the winter with minimal temperature fluctuations. Our boiler has only required an annual maintenance and cleaning and has been virtually trouble-free. And our techs love having warm floors in the winter!"

The heat for our radiant floor heating systems is produced by Columbia used oil boilers – a true workhorse built in the United States by a company that takes great pride in their products. Columbia waste oil boilers are built to run reliably for decades. You will save thousands of dollars every year on heating costs and used oil disposal costs by recycling your used oil onsite into heat.

Our radiant floor heating system is manufactured by Embassy Industries, a leader in radiant heating systems. Each component is finely engineered, made with quality materials, and built to last. The manifold makes it easy to adjust the flow-rate to each zone for maximum comfort. The dependability of the tubing used in your system is vital, so we only use genuine PEX tubing. PEX tubing is guaranteed never to degrade and it's flexible so it can be laid out to accommodate equipment, footings, etc. that will be built into your facility.

In just a few years an in-floor heating system pays for itself through utility savings and assists in taking an environmentally responsible approach to handling used oil.

The Benefits of Radiant Floor Heating

While in-floor heating is well known for its comfort, you might be surprised at its many other benefits in the workplace.

  • Health benefits for employees who stand for long periods. Instead of standing on cold cement floors they can experience improved health that naturally comes from standing on a warm floor.
  • Warmth. Radiant heat warms people and objects, not air, and stays near the floor. People feel more comfortable. The cars, trucks and other vehicles mechanics work on become comfortably warm and water on the vehicles and floors dries.
  • Safety. Warm floors prevent the formation of ice and the collection of water. For shop mechanics and oil change technicians this reduces the risk of slips, falls, and related injuries. Some companies are saving money on their worker-safety insurance; rates have decreased along with on-the-job injuries.
  • Fuel-efficient. All other things being equal, the boiler for a facility with radiant floor heat will need just half the BTU output of a facility using unit heaters.
  • Comfort. Radiant heat is consistent and even - no hot spots or cold nooks. It is also quiet, clean, and dust-free.
  • Hiring and retention. You may find that a more comfortable, safer work environment helps you attract and keep quality employees who recognize you value their heath and performance and enjoy working in a comfortable environment year round.

Radiant Heating Systems Designed to Last

We take time to address all of your needs to ensure that your radiant floor heating system meets your current needs and anticipates future changes. If your floor and the underlying PEX tubing is ever damaged it can be repaired and restored to like-new condition.
