A home heating system that warms living spaces without uncomfortable hot or cold air pockets.
In a radiant flooring setup, heat is supplied by hot-water tubes or electric wires underneath the floor. As the thermal radiation rises from below, it warms any object they come in contact with—which in turn radiates that captured heat. That means the air temperature can remain relatively constant while you stay comfortable because the warmth of your body is not stolen by surrounding surfaces.
The Advantages of Radiant Flooring
- More efficient than forced air heating because it eliminates duct losses
- Doesn’t distribute allergens like forced air systems can
- Uses less electricity than other systems.
