Walking barefoot on a heated floor is hard to resist! If you’re building a new house or remodeling your home, consider installing a radiant heat system. Also referred to as under floor heating, radiant floor heating is an energy-efficient way to keep warm throughout the cold months.
Radiant floor heating is an under-the-floor heating system that conducts heat through the floor surface; conventional forced-air heating systems conduct heat through the air. Radiant floor heating also makes it easier to control your comfort level room-by-room. To do this, simply set your preferred temp in the zones frequently used and turn down the temperature in any unused rooms to save energy. Heating your home room-by-room is also known as zone heating.
Radiant floor heating can also significantly improve your indoor air quality by helping eliminate pollen, microbes, dust, mold and viruses. Children, adults & seniors suffering from allergies, asthma or other respiratory ailments can benefit from radiant floor heating.
