What is Radiant Heating?

Have you heard of radiant heating before? A lot of homeowners are vaguely familiar with the term, but they don’t know exactly what it means. Radiant heating systems distribute thermal energy by transmitting it through solid objects. This means that rather than using a thermal medium like air, a radiant heating system is going to use other methods (either electric or hydronic) the transmit the energy.

In some circumstances you might use a boiler to pipe the hot water through your home and with an electric system, coils distribute the heat throughout your home. Through either method, the heat radiates outward and keeps you warm.

Why You Should Make the Switch

So now that you know how a radiant heating system works you’re probably wondering why you should take the time and effort to make the switch to one of these systems right?

Superior Comfort

Many people actually prefer the feeling of radiant heating to forced-air heating. You know what warm air blowing out of your home feels like, but radiant heating feels a little different. Radiant heating is more akin to the feeling of the hot summer sun shining down on you. If you want a different type of comfort to keep you warm this winter then it’s worth giving radiant heating a shot.

Bypass Forced Air Heating Troubles

If you’re switching to a radiant heating system then the chances are that you’re switching from a forced-air heating system. While forced-air heating systems are great and reliable under almost any circumstances, there are many problems that can arise with these systems. If you’re tired of trying to bypass the troubles of clogged air ducts and warm air rising and collecting at your ceiling, it might be time for you to consider radiant heating as an option.

Pay Lower Bills

Do you want lower heating bills in your home? Radiant heating is a great way for you to do this. Radiant heating systems are more efficient than other heating systems because, naturally, conductors like water or electric piping are better conduits than air. You can get low energy bills without ever sacrificing your heating services with a radiant heating system. Contact our professionals to learn more.
