While homeowners have many options available for how they can heat their home, radiant floor heating can provide many benefits over other heating methods. One of the most popular benefits of radiant floor heating is how drastically this heating method can cut down on one’s heating costs. In fact, radiant heating is so energy-efficient that it has been known to save homeowners 20-40% on their heating bills. Aside from being a cost-effective heating option, here are just a few of the many reasons to consider having a New York plumbing and heating specialist install silent and efficient radiant floor heating in your home.
Silent New York Plumbing and Heating
Many traditional heating methods can be extremely loud when heating your home. Furnaces, boilers, and radiators produce a tremendous amount of noise when running that can make these appliances distracting. On the other hand, radiant floor heating is completely silent as it uses water running through coils underneath your flooring to slowly, and more importantly, silently, distribute heat.
Efficient New York Plumbing and Heating
Radiant floor heating is currently the most efficient, modern home heating method available to New York City homeowners. This is because it heats a home in a more natural way than other heating methods as it slowly heats your home from the ground up. Heat will permeate your entire home, which will make your home feel warm at a lower temperature setting than would be required with an alternate heating method. This makes radiant heating the more environmentally friendly heating options as it reduces energy consumption. Kew Forest Plumbing employs proven radiant heating brands like Warmboard.
Warmboard is simply more conductive compared to all the other radiant heat systems. The job of a radiant heat system is to conduct heat from water in a tube to the surface of a radiant floor. This is why in radiant floor heating, conductivity is king. It is a simple law of physics that as conductivity goes up, water temperature goes down. It always saves money to heat water to a lower temperature, and therefore Warmboard is more energy efficient than all other radiant heat systems.
When considering heating options for your home, take the time to consider the benefits modern high-efficiency radiant floor heating would provide to you and your family. Contact Kew Forest Plumbing and Heating to find out more about the benefits of having radiant heating installed in your home.
