Thinking of installing radiant heating system in your home ? Radiant heat uses tubes to warm the entire floor rather than an HVAC system forcing hot air via the vents or pumping hot water to a radiator. There are two techniques to heat the floors: electric mats placed in or below the floor, or pipes transporting hot water embedded in or directly below the floor(hydronic heating). For individuals who want a dependable and energy-efficient heating system that is felt rather than seen, this is the perfect choice.
The main benefit of radiant heating over forced-air heating is that the heat will remain constant. Heat often rises to the top before falling back down when it cools. While heat still rises with radiant floor heating, it does so uniformly throughout the entire floor, keeping the coolest air up near the ceiling.
