Important Note:
For comfort and health reasons floor surfaces must be  controlled to a nominal 85 deg. F. or lower for heating and above 66 deg. F. for cooling.

ANSI/ASHRAE Std 55

"The images produced, clearly showing invisible infrared or "heat" radiation via thermography, aid in such diverse areas as medical and scientific research and development, building diagnostics and manufacturing product quality."

With thermal imaging one can see the influence of tube placement within a slab.

of thermography in radiant systems.

"The ability to detect and measure thermal energy emitted from an object is known as thermography. The tools of the trade are called infrared cameras, and they translate the invisible infrared spectrum into thermal images that we can see and track via thermography.

Light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye is referred to as thermal or infrared energy – and is the electromagnetic spectrum range that we perceive as heat. Everything with a temperature above absolute zero emits heat, which means that it may be tracked and measured via thermography. (Even ice cubes, emit infrared.) More and more IR radiation is emitted, as an objects temperature increases. Infrared thermography allows us to see, and measure, what our eyes cannot."
