The Advantages of Radiant Heating

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

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.

No Ducts

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.

Energy Savings

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.

Comfort

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.

Consider replacing an older inefficient heating system by calling an HVAC contractor today. If you’re thinking about radiant heating, talk to one of our experts about whether this efficient, practical heating system is the right choice for your home. Call the friendly professionals at SPS Mechanical Inc. today for the answers to all of your questions about heating services in Sewell, NJ!
