Radiant Hot Water Heat Distribution Equipment
The natural gas hot water boiler in your home is the heart of your hydronic heating system. The hot water is circulated through radiant heating appliances. Radiators, baseboard heating units or plumbing loops in floors are commonly used for heat distribution.
In a replacement installation, the new boiler will connect with your existing equipment. In most cases, you won’t need to change anything. However, technology for these devices has improved over the years. Many homeowners want to upgrade to newer radiant heating units in one or more rooms. We’ll be glad to help you choose new hydronic equipment and install it as part of the installation.
- Burnham Radiators – Preserve Tradition with Better Comfort – Cast iron is the traditional material for hot water and steam radiators. Traditional radiators are still in use in older homes throughout the Twin Cities. Burnham, part of the U. S. Boiler company, continues that tradition, offering a complete line of cast-iron radiant heating equipment. From traditional-looking radiators that preserve historical appearance to baseboard heating units with a slender profile, you’ll find modern designs in all sizes and styles. Burnham offers radiant convection circulation units and slenderized traditional radiators, too.
- Slant Fin Hydronic Baseboard Heaters – Slant Fin specializes in sleek, modern baseboard heating units. These mount on the floor against walls and evenly distribute heat throughout any room.

These units are ideal for modern decorating schemes in any home, and look terrific in any installation. Affordable in cost, they install quickly. They’re also ideal for modernizing rooms with old-fashioned radiators.
- Ideal Contractor for Residential Steam Heat Conversion Projects – Some beautiful classic and historical homes in the Minneapolis St. Paul area were designed for and still use steam heat. Plumbing and radiators in these homes may not be compatible with modern hot water hydronic boiler systems. Some existing radiators can be converted for hot water use, but it’s often best to switch to modern hydronic radiators and baseboard heaters when converting to hot water. If you’re planning such a project, we’ll be happy to help you with product selection and installation. We are not licensed or certified to supply, install, and service residential steam heating systems.
