If you’re looking into a new heating system, the best time to call an HVAC technician is now, before the season starts to get any colder. And one system that has gained a lot of popularity is radiant floor heating. With radiant heating, you’ll feel warmer throughout the day in any area of the home.
You use radiant heat every day when you step outside to absorb the radiant energy of the sun’s rays. Radiant heating systems differ in that they transfer radiant energy through a heat source and an object such as the floor. Underfloor radiant heating systems are one of the most efficient ways to keep family members comfortable day and night. Here are some of the advantages you’ll notice right away when you schedule radiant heating installation today.
Forced-air heating systems, such as furnaces and heat pumps, generally have filters that keep some pollutants out of your home. But as fans distribute air to your home via the ducts, you can still expect these systems to move some dust and allergens around in your home, which could trigger respiratory problems. Radiant heating does not rely on ductwork, which can not only prevent health issues, but also decreases energy loss.
Ducts may account for more than 30% of energy lost during heating. Radiant heating systems won’t ever have to deal with this loss, and most are extremely efficient, saving homeowners up to 40% on their bills over older forced-air systems.
One of the key reasons homeowners love radiant floor heating is that these systems provide even heating for maximum comfort throughout the day. An underfloor radiant system heats up every surface it comes in contact with, including your bed and the other furniture in your home. Unlike forced-air systems, which may not heat an entire room with ease, floor systems distribute heat evenly, which means you’ll feel radiant energy as soon as you step onto the floor.
