If you dislike cold floors under your feet when you first get up in the morning, it may be time for you to upgrade your home’s heating system. A radiant heat system is a cost-effective solution to heat your home comfortably and efficiently. Chances are, you may not be aware of how much it can improve your comfort. Here is a brief overview from a knowledgable radiant heat contractor of how your home can benefit from having a radiant heat system.
Lower Energy Bills
Forced air heating equipment pushes warm air through the ventilation ducts in your home, resulting in heat loss. Heat loss also occurs as hot air rises towards your ceilings. As warm air rises, it forces cold air down towards the floors, which may cause you to set your thermostat a few degrees higher than necessary to make your home comfortable. With radiant heat systems, you can maintain a warm and comfortable environment with lower thermostat settings and lower your utility bills.
Most traditional heat systems use blowers, making them quite noisy to operate. Radiant heat systems do not use fans to distribute heat. They use tubes. There is no need to worry about the sound of the furnace cycling on and off and air blowing through the vents. Or blowing hot air that reduces the humidity of the space.
Better Air Quality
Radiant heat systems deliver heat to the air indirectly through tubes and pipes in the walls and floors. They reduce the amount of dust, dirt, and contaminants that are stirred up and redistributed into the air. Radiant heat is better for allergy sufferers because there are fewer dust particles for them to breathe in.
