  • Radiant heating and cooling

    Uponor commercial radiant heating and cooling systems  


    Uponor radiant heating and cooling systems improve energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality (IEQ) for structures around the globe. 

    Consistently comfortable

    Uponor hydronic radiant floor heating and cooling distributes comfortable temperatures evenly. There are no hot or cold spots, making it ideal for buildings with high ceilings and/or expansive windows. 
    How hydronic radiant floor heating and cooling works

    PEX pipe and water flow 

    Water flows through flexible PEX pipes embedded in the ground, within a concrete slab or in radiant panels.  

    Energy transfer

    The radiant surface area transfers energy to effectively heat and/or cool for the most superior human thermal comfort.   

    Heating and cooling benefits 

    Heat radiates up from the floor to warm people and objects or absorbs heat back into the floor to provide cooling benefits. 

    Efficient design 

    Systems can even transport heat from one side of a building to the other to heat and cool simultaneously throughout the day. 

    Reduces cooling loads 

    Radiant cooling can effectively manage all or at least a portion of the building’s sensible load to reduce the total demand placed on a forced-air system. 

    Flooring compatibility

    A radiant heating and cooling system is also compatible under any type of floor covering — carpet, wood, slate, tile, stone, laminate, and even concrete.

    Several installation methods

    Uponor offers several methods for installing a radiant heating and cooling system: tie downs, staples, rails and Radiant Rollout™ Mats.

    Piping solutions

    Uponor offers Wirsbo hePEX™ oxygen-barrier pipe along with Ecoflex® pre-insulated piping systems for distribution to radiant heating and cooling systems.

    Radiant systems energy and comfort comparisons

    A hydronic radiant system is much more energy efficient compared to a forced-air HVAC system. 

    • Water has the capacity to transfer energy 3,500 times greater than air.
    • Energy savings can range from 20% to 40% over traditional forced-air systems.
    • Radiant provides greater thermal comfort at a lower temperature setpoint for heating and a higher temperature setpoint for cooling.

    Save 80% on installation time

    Radiant Rollout™ Mats are a custom-designed, prefabricated network of Uponor PEX pipe that installers can simply "roll out" on the job site, saving up to 80% on installation time.

  • Hydronic piping

    Uponor PEX hydronic heating and cooling systems 


    Hydronic hot-water heating and chilled water cooling systems are the most efficient and comfortable way to heat and/or cool a structure. 

    Durable, cost-effective solution 

    Using Uponor PEX-a piping and ProPEX® connections for hydronic heating and cooling systems offers a durable, cost-effective solution for transporting water to terminal units such as chilled beams and fan coil units. 
    Why Uponor PEX is a great solution for hydronic piping 

    Sizes up to 4" 

    Benefit from the most comprehensive oxygen-barrier PEX pipe offering with sizes up to 4". Use Wirsbo hePEX™ pipe as well as the Ecoflex® pre-insulated piping system for underground distribution.

    Safer job sites 

    Uponor PEX pipe and the ProPEX connection system eliminate open flame, chemicals and fire-watch requirements.

    Installation ease 

    Whether in the slab or under a slab, Uponor PEX offers flexible application options.

    System durability 

    PEX is engineered to resist pitting, scaling, corrosion and rust. 

    ProPEX connections

    Pipe support 

    Uponor PEX-a Pipe Support enables hanger spacing similar to copper and helps to control the natural expansion and contraction of PEX.
  • Snow and ice melting

    Uponor PEX snow and ice melting systems 

     

    Uponor hydronic radiant snow and ice melting systems eliminate the back-breaking work of snow and ice removal to make surfaces cleaner, safer and easier to manage. 

     
    How it works

    Uponor PEX snow and ice melting system

    PEX piping buried in concrete, asphalt or sand circulates a warm water/glycol solution to heat the surface and melt ice and snow on contact. Use Uponor's Wirsbo hePEX™ oxygen-barrier pipe along with the Ecoflex® pre-insulated piping system for a durable, reliable solution.

  • Turf conditioning

    Uponor PEX turf conditioning systems 

     

    Uponor was the first to use PEX piping for hydronic turf conditioning systems. These systems are now used by the National Football League (NFL) and in numerous soccer and other athletic stadiums in Europe, Canada and the United States. 
    How it works

    Preserve natural turf all year long

    Uponor PEX turf conditioning systems use PEX piping embedded in the soil beneath the turf to circulate a warm water/glycol mixture that helps to maintain an optimum soil temperature for the root bulb of grass plants. This ensures a constant root temperature for lush, green grass year round, which, in turn, helps to protect athletes from serious injury in all climates and seasons.

    Support every step of the way

    Uponor provides support through every stage of the project delivery process — from solicitation to pre-construction to post-construction.

    Pipe flexibility 

    Flexible PEX pipe is faster and easier to install compared to rigid metal underground piping systems. Use Uponor's Wirsbo hePEX™ oxygen-barrier pipe in the soil along with the Ecoflex® pre-insulated piping system for distribution.
     

    Superior field conditions 

    Optimal soil temperature promotes growth, faster recovery, a longer playing season and superior field conditions, which helps protect athletes from serious injury in all climates and seasons.

    Transferable limited warranty

     Uponor PEX pipe and ProPEX® fittings are backed by a 25-year transferable limited warranty. 

    Fewer connections 

    Long PEX pipe coil lengths greatly reduce or eliminate any underground connections.
