  Believe it or not, radiant floors are one of the oldest forms of heating a structure — dating all the way back to Roman times. Radiant floor heat provides numerous benefits, including increased comfort, even temperatures, cleaner air, no cold drafts, no unsightly ductwork and no floor vents, all while being quieter and more energy-efficient compared to forced-air heat.

In a radiant floor heating system, warm water flows through tubes located underneath the floors. That warmth radiates up from the floors and warms everything it comes in contact with — including people.

And radiant is compatible under any type of floor covering — carpet, wood, slate, tile, linoleum, and even concrete — making design possibilities endless.

Honeywell can trace its roots back to 1885, when an inventor named Albert Butz patented the furnace regulator and alarm. He formed the Butz Thermo-Electric Regulator Co., Minneapolis, on April 23, 1886, and a few weeks later invented a simple, yet ingenious device that he called the "damper flapper."

Here's how it worked. When a room cooled below a predetermined temperature, a thermostat closed the circuit and energized an armature. This pulled the stop from the motor gears, allowing a crank attached to the main motor shaft to turn one-half revolution. A chain connected to the crank opened the furnace's air damper to let in air. This made the fire burn hotter. When the temperature rose to the preset level, the thermostat signaled the motor to turn another half revolution, closing the damper and damping the fire. The temperature correction was automatic.

 Over the years, many Honeywell products have been based upon similar, but more complicated closed-loop systems.  The Consolidated Temperature Controlling Co. incorporated, acquired Butz's patents and business, and by 1893, had renamed itself Electric Heat Regulator Co. The first company ads ran in 1895 featuring the now famous thermostat.


The newest Honeywell Thermostat is the Prestige HD 7-Day Programmable Thermostat.  It offers High-definition full-color display with simple programming that walks you through the setup process. You can adjust temperature from anywhere in the home with a Portable Comfort Control.

Do temperatures in your home vary widely between rooms and levels? Does constant fiddling with the thermostat and registers produce more frustration than comfort? Consider installing a Temperature Zoning System.

By offering individualized temperature control for different areas of your home, zoning eliminates the “too hot up, too cold down” homeowners often experience during air-conditioning season.

In fact, zoning can help you achieve comfort in all areas of your home, in any season. And it can save you energy and money, when used with programmable thermostats that automatically switch between comfort and energy-saving temperatures.




No matter what your family's needs may be, Modern Heating Co. can design a solution

 that will provide the most comfortable environment possible.

High efficiency equipment can be installed whether your system is located

in a basement, a utility room, or an attic!
