What is radiant heating?
The radiant heating systems that we install use a series of wires or pipes to warm up your property. A radiant heating system includes a network of electrical lines or water pipes that are placed inside of your floors. Some systems include lines running through your walls or ceiling as well. Hot water is generated by a boiler or water heater. This water is then circulated through the pipes. Electric radiant heating systems use wires in the floors that are heated up. The heat then comes out of the floors and walls throughout your property instead of a single vent or radiator in one location. The heat moves up slowly until it fills the entire room.
What are its benefits?
One of the main benefits of the radiant heating systems that we install is comfort. Since radiant heating systems warm the floors and other surfaces of the rooms throughout your property the heat is more evenly distributed. The heat is very comfortable and comes from all parts of the room. Another benefit is energy efficiency. A radiant heating system is more efficient than a forced air system.
Properties will feel warmer than the actual temperature indicated on the thermostat because of the way the heat moves through the room. This will result in lower electricity bills when it gets cold outside. A third benefit is that radiant heating systems are quiet. There is no sound of a blower or rushing air while the system is operating. An additional advantage to radiant heating is that it will help to improve your indoor air quality, as other systems can circulate dust and germs throughout your home or building.

How much can you save on heating costs?
Most people who switch to radiant heating systems can reduce heating costs by anywhere from 10% to 30%. The savings can be as high as 40% to 60% for a commercial building. One reason for this is that most people can reduce the thermostat by around 5 degrees Fahrenheit with radiant heating. Households using very old and inefficient heating systems that require frequent fuel deliveries will see the largest savings from radiant heat. A system that allows for multiple heating zones in a property will deliver significant savings each year.
