Uponor Radiant Floor Heating Systems for the Home Uponor, formerly Wirsbo, was the first to bring radiant floor heating to North America more than 40 years ago. Today, Uponor radiant floor heating systems are bringing the energy-efficient luxury of radiant floor heating to the masses for a simple, affordable solution to home comfort.

In an Uponor radiant floor heating system, warm water flows through flexible, durable crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) tubing that is embedded under the floor. The warmth radiates up from the floor to warm objects and people in a room. It is the purest form of human thermal comfort.
