How Does Radiant Heat Work?
Radiant heat gently and evenly warms the surfaces of objects in a room, such as the floor (also known as underfloor heating).
Radiant heat remains in the lower part of the room creating the perfect climate for comfort. The water for a radiant system can be warmed with boilers, geothermal heat pumps, solar collection systems or water heaters.
Benefits of Radiant Floor Heating
Efficiency -- In most cases, it requires 20-40% less energy to operate compared to forced hot air systems and can potentially save you up to 30% in heating expenses per year.
Clean, Green & Healthy -- Unlike forced hot air, radiant heat does not circulate dust, pollens or other airborne allergens in the air.
Enhances Control -- It's easy to zone a radiant heating system using multiple thermostats. This allows you to adjust temperatures in a single room or a group of rooms, based on activity and usage levels.
Flexible -- Radiant heating can be used in floors, walls and ceilings and can be installed in a single room or throughout your home or building. There are no heaters, radiators or additional vents, so you'll have more design freedom.
Increased Property Value -- No duct work, pipe or fan noise. No concerns about where to decorate due to vents, etc. Compatible with hardwood, carpet, vinyl, ceramic, tile and natural stone floor coverings.
Low Maintenance -- No belts or fans to replace, no ducts to clean, no filters to change.
Heating & Cooling -- The system is used for cooling as well, even in the most extreme temperature, because it is designed to hold a constant temperature, whether it is hot or cold outdoors.
