Benefits of Radiant Heat
Radiant heat doesn’t require forced air to warm your home. There are several different options, including steam radiators and electric, sub-floor systems. Because of the amount of energy used, electric units aren’t practical for a whole home. Hydronic radiant heating systems provide a comfortable, convenient solution.
Hydronic radiant floor heat comes from tubing filled with thermal liquid. The liquid is heated and then circulates through the home, creating universal warmth. Because air isn’t used to circulate the heat, drafts don’t have the same impact.
Radiant heat — whether provided by a floor system or old-fashioned radiator units — takes advantage of HVAC zoning. Every room in your home can be set to its own temperature.
These heating systems are also best for those who suffer from asthma and allergies. Without forced air blowing contaminants (and cold germs) throughout the house, you’ll have an easier time breathing.
Proper Radiant Heat System Installation
There are jobs for homeowners to attempt on their own, and a small room filled with electrical radiant flooring might be a candidate. You must be especially careful with the tubing, though. Placed under tile or select laminate products, your feet will stay cozy even on the coldest nights.
Hydro radiant floor systems, however, are a different story. They’re more complicated and use an advanced thermal liquid to disperse warmth that might pose a health risk if mishandled. Not to mention, you could wind up installing your system the wrong way and miss the full advantages.
