Are you looking for an energy-efficient way to heat your home? Radiant floor heat is a wonderful way to provide even warmth throughout your home during Utah winters. Powered by warm water circulating under your floors, radiant floor heat is a great solution for Utah homeowners.

Utah Snowmelt Systems

Sick of shoveling snow, slipping on ice, dragging salt into your home, or dealing with other corrosive de-icing products? Consider an in-ground snow melt system! Snowmelt systems are an energy-efficient way to heat your driveway and sidewalks during the winter months. These are a great, low-maintenance way to keep your property accessible, safe, and snow free during our harsh Utah winters. Learn more.

What is Radiant Floor Heating?

Radiant floor heating, also known as hydronic heating, is an energy-efficient method of warming your home. Unlike forced air systems, radiant floor heating relies on warm water circulating beneath your floors. Water is heated using a water heater, circulated via flexible tubing in your subfloor, and then the generated heat radiates up through the floor to warm your entire home.

A note to relay the excellent job Jordan Walker did repairing a leak on the water pipes in my condo. He also noticed an issue with my water heater and repaired a critical vent. This was an after-hours call, Jordan responded promptly, diagnosed the problem and was able to fix the leak quickly and expertly. His manner was friendly, skillful and informative. Thank you, Jordan, and thank you Thornton Plumbing and Heating. Lance Paulson

We used them to repair a shower steam generator. Jordan Walker was outstanding. He diagnosed the problem and had it repaired on the spot in no time. I will definitely use this company and request Jordan for all my plumbing work.

Worked in the building trades or 40+ years. Some new construction, mainly residental renovation. I "collect" good subcontractors. There are a lot of less desirable contractors now. Clear, concise & know how to perform. I now recommend them to friends & family.
