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 comfortableUponor 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 flowWater flows through flexible PEX pipes embedded in the ground, within a concrete slab or in radiant panels.
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.
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.
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.
Uponor offers Wirsbo hePEX™ oxygen-barrier pipe along with Ecoflex® pre-insulated piping systems for distribution to radiant heating and cooling systems.HyDronic radiant vs. forced-air hvac
Radiant systems energy and comfort comparisonsA 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 timeRadiant 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.View productA partner you can trust
25-year transferable warranty
Uponor confidently backs its PEX pipe and ProPEX® fittings with a 25-year transferable limited warranty for added confidence and peace of mind.

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 solutionUsing 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 sitesUponor PEX pipe and the ProPEX connection system eliminate open flame, chemicals and fire-watch requirements.
Installation easeWhether in the slab or under a slab, Uponor PEX offers flexible application options.
System durabilityPEX is engineered to resist pitting, scaling, corrosion and rust.
ProPEX connectionsAs the only PEX connection that actually gets stronger over time, ProPEX ASTM F1960 expansion connections are remarkably fast and easy to learn and quick to install.

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 systemPEX 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.Learn more about Ecoflex

Uponor PEX turf conditioning systemsHow it works
Preserve natural turf all year longUponor 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.
Benefits of an Uponor PEX turf conditioning system
Pipe flexibilityFlexible 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 conditionsOptimal 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 warrantyUponor PEX pipe and ProPEX® fittings are backed by a 25-year transferable limited warranty.
Fewer connectionsLong PEX pipe coil lengths greatly reduce or eliminate any underground connections.
The perfect playing surface all year longUponor PEX turf conditioning systems are used in numerous football, soccer and other athletic stadiums in Europe, Canada and the United States. See how Uponor PEX turf conditioning keeps the Toyota Park outdoor stadium field in excellent condition year round.
