Cut Concrete With Radiant floor heat

Q. I am looking to cut a trench into concrete at a carwash location that has radiant floor heat. Is there a way to accomplish this without completely wrecking system? If so what is best recommended method.

A. Thermal Imaging is the best way to detect radiant heat tubes in a concrete floor. By using an infrared (thermal imaging) camera, an experienced professional can detect the differentiating thermal patterns of buried heating pipes which enables them to pinpoint the exact piping locations.

A good infrared imaging camera is so sensitive that it will allow the contractor to map out an entire radiant heat system (no matter what size it is; revealing where all the supply tubing is situated within your floor.
