What is Radiant Heating?
A radiant heating system is one where hot water runs through a terminal point inside a house, such as a radiator, baseboard heater, or in floor tubes. The water heats up the object, which then sends radiant heat energy into a room.
One of the most popular types of radiant heaters is the in–floor heating system. Water from a boiler moves through pipes that are set in a subfloor beneath the floor of rooms. This warms up the floor, sending an even spread of heat up into the living space. In-floor systems can be put into older homes but are best done as part of new construction. You can also ask us about electric radiant heating systems, which are just as effective and highly efficient!
The Benefits of Radiant Heating
There are plenty of benefits of having a radiant heating system installed in your home, including:
- Energy efficiency: Water is a better thermal transference medium than air, so radiant heaters are more efficient at energy use. You can expect to save money every winter season thanks to a radiant heater.
- Even heating distribution: Forced–air heaters blow air toward the top of the room, where it takes a while for it to spread through the rest of the space. But radiant heaters distribute their heat quickly and evenly.
- Improves indoor air quality: The lack of ductwork in a radiant heater means that it doesn’t blow around dust and other debris lodged inside the ducts. This can make significant improvements to your home’s indoor air quality.
- Exceptional comfort: The thermal energy coming from a radiant heating system simply feels "cozier," like being warmed directly by the sun.
