Radiant Floor Heating
When it comes to the ultimate in luxury and comfort, there are not many more advances in technology than that of radiant floor heating. Radiant floor heating is like a heating system in your home that you don’t even realize is there. No noisy radiators, or forced air coming through vents; no allergens from ductwork and no unevenly heated areas.
Besides being an invisible source of heat, a radiant floor heating system is highly energy efficient - increasing your comfort and lowering your energy costs.
The technology behind radiant floor heating is warmth that is supplied by hot water tubes or electrical wires buried beneath your floor. Invisible waves of thermal radiation rise from beneath the floor, warming up any objects the heat reaches and in turn radiate the captured heat. The air temperature remains constant and you stay comfortable in any area of your home.
In forced air heating systems, found in most homes, warm air blows and rises to the top of each room, quickly shedding heat and then cools as it drops back down. This causes the temperature of the room to confuse your body temperature - your upper body may feel warm, while your legs and toes stay chilly.
With a radiant floor heating system, the heat still rises, but because it begins at the floor, the cooler air rises to the ceiling, keeping your entire home and body warm. There’s just no comparison when it comes to comfort.
The options in radiant floor heating systems range from single rooms to entire homes depending on your budget and preferences.
