4 Benefits of Radiant Heating

Radiant heating

Nothing beats the feeling of sitting or walking on a warm floor in the wintertime, and only one type of heating system delivers that luxury: radiant heat.

But radiant heat does more than just keep your feet warm – it delivers benefits that no other system can really match, such as:

  1. More room flexibility – Tired of radiators or vents dictating where you can put your furniture? With a radiant heat system, that’s no longer an issue, since the floor surface itself emits heat.
  2. Fewer allergies – Since radiant heating doesn’t rely on forced air to distribute warm air, it also doesn’t push dust, dirt, and other allergens around the room. It’s estimated that there is a 50 to 80 percent reduction in the number of dust mites in homes that feature radiant heating.
  3. Greater durability – A concrete-based radiant floor heating system is virtually indestructible, so it’s right at home in rec rooms, basements, garages, industrial buildings, or other buildings with high interior traffic.
  4. Improved efficiency – Radiant heat systems are more efficient than other forms of heating – typically 10 to 20 percent. Also, By warming the surfaces of your room rather than the air itself, radiant heat significantly reduces the rate of heat loss from people in the room, allowing most to feel comfortable at room temperatures three to five degrees lower than with other methods of heating.
