During the 60s, research was underway in Europe on a new polymer material called cross-linked polyethylene, or "PEX" for short. The reason for the decline of the use of radiant heating in homes and other dwellings is because many floor heating systems that were installed in the United States using copper tubing and steel pipe failed due to metal fatigue or chemical incompatibilities with concrete, and it was often difficult or impossible to find and correct. It became easier to apply air conditioning, which could either cool or heat the air. However, Pex tubing changed this.
Improvements have been made to under floor radiant heat systems since they were first installed, thanks to the use of Pex tubing. Pexheat can help you find the materials you need to make it possible to install systems that can last for decades. These Pex tubing materials have been extensively tested in radiant panel heating applications over the last three decades. Major advances have also been made in heat sources and controls, such as Pex manifolds. This has effectively merged the superior comfort aspects of radiant heating with market demands for easy installation and reliability.
