Radiant Heat Systems
Nothing comes close to the comfort of a radiant heat system. Making sure it is designed, installed and maintained properly is paramount.
Radiant heat is a technology that takes advantage of the simple fact that warm air rises. Unlike other conventional heating systems, heat is not distributed through forced-air circulation. Tubing is placed beneath the floor of a home. Radiant heat works off of a boiler or a water heater, warming floors and objects in the room such as furniture and walls.
Benefits of Radiant Heat Systems
- Comfortable. The comfort of a radiant heat system is unmatched. The technology works much the same as how the sun heats your body. It provides a naturally warm feel, allowing you to enjoy a warm chair and warm floors while walking barefoot in the wintertime.
- Clean. Radiant heating systems are essentially hypoallergenic. Since the air is not forced, you don’t have to be concerned about the heating system distributing pollen, dust and other allergens in the home.
- Energy Efficient. On a whole, they are more efficient than baseboard heating and forced-air heating. With forced air-heating, up to 30 percent of the heat is lost due to ductwork.
- Whisper Quiet. Without blowers, there are no noisy fans, and the home is peaceful.
- Attractive. An underfloor heating system eliminates inconvenient floor and wall registers.
- Zoning. These systems are easy to zone and offer room-to-room temperature control with multiple thermostats.
- Versatile. Radiant systems can use a wide variety of sources to heat the liquid, such a gas fired boiler or water heater depending on the size of the heating area.
