You get up in the middle of the night and stumble toward the bathroom, doing your best not to fully wake yourself up. But then you step onto the freezing cold tile floor in your bathroom, and suddenly you’re wide awake.It’s a common scenario, and a very annoying one. Fortunately, modern heating technology gives us a way around that problem. Radiant floor heating is the solution to those wishing to warm their house and their feet in an affordable, energy efficient way.
The benefits of radiant heating:
Here are some of the biggest benefits of radiant floor heating:
- It’s clean and it can reduce allergies. Traditional systems circulate the same air throughout the entire house. If there are dust and other allergens anywhere in the ventilation system, those with allergies can find their symptoms worsened.
- It’s energy efficient. Traditional heating systems can be very inefficient as they force warm air throughout your entire home, even to areas that you very rarely use. Radiant floor heating, on the other hand, is very energy efficient, as it will be installed only in the areas that need it the most and because it doesn’t need to use extra energy to force the heated air through your home.
- It’s comfortable. Radiant heating ensures that the rooms you use the most stay warm. No more shivering in your bathroom or kitchen when you get up in the morning and start getting ready for the day.
How does radiant floor heating work?
The radiant floor heating works just like it sounds, by radiating heat up through the floor. Heating panels are installed beneath the floor, and heat is radiated through the entire room. Radiant heating is affordable, energy efficient, and clean. Radiant heating systems are commonly installed in bathrooms, basements, and kitchens, but they can be installed in any area of your home. Unlike like a traditional heating system that circulates heat around the room, radiant floor heating pushes heat from the floor to the ceiling heating the whole room evenly.
Radiant floor heating is an increasingly popular option for those wishing to make their homes more comfortable, clean, and energy efficient.
