What is Radiant Floor Heating?
Benefits of Radiant Heating
There are many reasons why you might consider installing a radiant heating system in your home. Radiant floor heat is much more practical than keeping your feet warm. Here are some of the many benefits you’ll experience when you have a floor heating system installed:
Responsive Temperature Controls
Our system comes with temperature control that gives you control over the temperature you want, in the areas you want, and the time that suits you. It’s a completely automatic system, you just set it and forget it!
Eliminates Cold Spots In Your Home
Our system eliminates any ‘cold spots’ in the room and helps with any stuffiness due to uneven hot and cold temperatures. When your floor is heated, the heat rises, which will warm the rest of the room. Radiant floor heat is an economic option for heating in a new addition to your house or for supplemental heat to even out the temperature throughout your house.
Energy Efficient Heating
When you have a boiler system installed in your home, hydronic systems are incredibly energy efficient. Boilers, on average, require less energy to heat water than air. This makes radiant heat an incredibly energy-efficient option.
Works With Any Type of Floor Covering
Although we’ve mentioned tile a lot, radiant heating can work with any type of flooring including vinyl and linoleum, as well as carpet and wood. It all depends on the type of floor installation process involved. Tubing and cables are often laid beneath the subfloor or a concrete slab. Some radiant heating systems can even be used with plywood subflooring. Talk to your heating technician to see what kind of radiant heating system would work best under your floors.
Safe & Easy to Install
Because your heating system is not exposed like a furnace would be, there is a less likely chance of burning or accidentally coming into contact with a hot element. The cables and piping in your radiant floor heating will be insulated and safely tucked below the floor. Because you do not need ductwork installed to make radiant heat work in your home, it is very easy to install. Much easier than a traditional heating system. And with no ductwork, dust and allergens cannot hide and spread through the air ducts. You’ll notice improved indoor air quality as well when you have electric radiant floors.
