Upcoming STANDATA changes to the under slab insulation requirements for radiant heating systems
and
Condominium Property Amendment Act regulations survey
Upcoming STANDATA changes
Municipal Affairs has issued a statement regarding under slab insulation requirements when installing radiant heating systems into a concrete basement slab.
  • The requirement for additional insulation below the concrete slab of any new home that has radiant heating installed in the slab has created a practical and financial barrier for the installation of radiant heating.
  • Provincial Building Administrator and Provincial Plumbing/Gas Administrator will develop an urgent STANDATA Interpretation to allow radiant heating to be installed without the insulation requirement.
  • A proposed code change will also be made to the National Building Code.
