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 EfficientRadiant 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 HealthfulRadiant 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!
