What Does "Radiant Heating" Mean?
The term radiant heating refers to one of the three ways for heat to move. With radiant heating, heat waves come off a hot object and then move through space until they meet another object, which they then warm. You feel radiant heat from the sun and coming off hot pavement.
What radiant heating means for home comfort is a system that uses hydronic power (heated water from a boiler) to raise the temperature of objects in a room, such as radiators or floor boards and the wall. Heat radiates from these objects to deliver warmth into the room. This is different from the heat from a furnace or heat pump, which is blown around using fans.
Benefits of In–Wall and In–Floor Heating
Radiators and baseboard heaters are the most common way for radiant heating to work, but we offer installation and service for in–floor and in–wall radiant heating. Instead of a single object in a room heating up, you can have the floor and walls warm up and send a comforting spread of heat outward. There are some excellent advantages to using in–wall and in–floor heating:
- Fast: With heat coming from right under your feet or from the walls, the comfort spread through the room and the people in it quickly. Faster heating means you won’t have to run the heater as often.
- Even: Forced–air heating systems like furnaces and heat pumps tend to create cool spots in rooms because they blow out of vents and gather at the ceiling. In–wall and in–floor heating sends out even warmth that gets rid of those annoying cold spots.
- Energy Savings: There’s few better ways to save on regular heating costs than using hydronic heating (already an energy–saver) delivered fast and evenly to a space.
- Longevity: Like other hydronic systems, in–floor and in–wall radiant heating will outlast most other heating systems.
