Concrete is a great conductor of heat. This makes radiant slab heating the most efficient heat delivery system available. Along with being the most comfortable heat, it's inexpensive and smart planning.
Preparation is the key to building the most efficient radiant floor by mitigating moisture penetration from underlying soil.
After the ground is compacted, insulation such as Insul-Tarp must be placed on top of the ground and under your wire mesh. Insul-Tarp is easy to install and provides a vapor barrier and directs the heat energy upwards into the heated space.
The radiant heat tubing is then attached to the wire mesh using copper wire ties. The tubing should be embedded in the concrete in the bottom third of the slab thickness. This puts the structural mesh in the correct location. Care should be taken to insure that the tubing is not exposed on the bottom of the slab. Wire mesh "chairs" can be used to support the wire mesh properly up off of the insulation.
We highly recommend that, after you have installed the radiant floor tubing per the plans, you test for leaks with an air compressor. Although tubing leaks are rare, sometimes damage can occur on the construction site. It’s best to find any leaks before the concrete is poured!
