Present history books show radiant floor systems have been around at least since 3000 B.C. Decades before the Greeks and Romans, inhabitants of present day Korea and Alaska used forms of radiant systems that later found themselves in hospital tents of the American Civil War. This session explores the past of radiant floor heating systems to present day.
