5 Advantages of Radiant Floor Heating

Radiant floor heating offers many advantages over other forms of heating. Here are just a few of the advantages.

Energy Efficient

Radiant heat is like being out in the sunshine. You can be more comfortable at a lower air temperature.  This lower air temperature will save you money on your energy bills.

The sensation of comfort is caused by a combination of air temperature and radiant energy that equals the body’s energy needs.  When you receive a greater amount of radiant energy, you will be equally comfortable at a lower air temperature. The sensation of radiant heat allows you to keep the air temperature – and your heating bills – lower.

Cleaner and More Healthful

Radiant heating does not blow dust, dirt, bacteria and viruses around your home. Unlike forced air systems, radiant heat will not dry out your respiratory system and leaving you vulnerable to infection. Radiant heat is ideal for people with asthma and other upper respiratory ailments.

Child Friendly and Safer

With radiant floor heating, there are no dangerously hot surfaces for children to come into contact with...and no floor vents to drop those crayons into!


With no vents or unsightly metal grates, you can't see a radiant heating system, it's completely hidden underfoot. But you can certainly feel it, and it feels great!

Simple and Reliable

Radiant heating systems are simple. Unlike more complicated forced air or electric heating systems, there are fewer parts that need service or maintenance. A radiant floor heating system is virtually maintenance free and will provide many years of reliable, comfortable heat.
