Radiant Floor Heating Maintenance Mishaps

Skipping out on floor heater maintenance is an easy way to increase costs and decrease the life of your investment. While these systems tend to be incredibly reliable, proper care is necessary, as with any temperature controlling system, to ensure constant function. We’ve seen too many users skip out on maintenance in favor of rolling the dice, and they’ve often ended up with damaged floor heating systems and downtime during the coldest months. With a little thought and planning, you can minimize the risk of these inconveniences happening to you. Let’s take a look at some of the worst case scenarios that we’ve seen in the past resulting from improper maintenance planning.

Cold Toes at the Holidays

A system that hadn’t received regular radiant flooring heating maintenance in years reached its breaking point just hours before the extended family arrived at the client’s home for a holiday get-together. Comfortable bare feet weren’t an option for the kids, and they simply didn’t have time to buy slippers for everyone. To say that the family was disappointed would be an understatement, but it all could’ve been avoided with properly scheduled maintenance. While they were able to get the system functioning again following the holidays, the added costs and inconvenience showed the benefit of regular floor heater maintenance quite clearly.

Floor Heating Maintenance and the Snow

One year, a family was outside building snowmen and enjoying a frosty wonderland for hours. When their toes became too cold to contend with, they rushed indoors to take advantage of the old, reliable floor heating system. Unfortunately, the lack of scheduled radiant floor heating maintenance had taken its toll on the family’s system. Their toes remained icy, and they were forced to seek out another heating solution. Proper maintenance could have prevented the letdown.

Avoiding Downtime and Staying Warm

Minimizing the risk of a breakdown like these families suffered is simple; maintain floor heating systems regularly, as suggested by the installer, to maximize the effectiveness of your unit. With a little luck, your preparation will keep your loved ones’ toes nice and cozy throughout the harsh winter months.
