Radiant heating systems provide phenomenal heating for a relatively low cost – when they work properly. Both electrical radiant heaters and water-based radiant heating systems work by radiating heat rather than blowing hot air through the home.
Radiant heaters are great investments but even these systems can run into trouble at some point or another.

We’re here to help you keep your home’s heating system running at peak performance, whether you’re in Harrisburg, Selinsgrove, Mifflinburg, or Lewistown, PA.

Common Radiant Heating System Problems
- Pipe leaks: Pipe leaks can cause serious damage without proper maintenance.
- Pipe freeze: Power and heat loss can lead to a freeze-up. Anti-freeze may help prevent this issue.
- Air lock: Because the boiler system that supplies the hot water to your home is pressurized, air bubbles can occasionally develop inside the pipes, blocking the flow of hot water.
