Businessowners and homeowners in the Northeast tend to have concerns about keeping their buildings warm during the long, harsh winters. While there are many options available, nothing can make a building feel cozier than radiant heat. Radiant heat provides ideal temperature conditions, at approximately 75˚ F at floor level, which declines to around 68˚F at eye level. However, finding the right radiant heat contractor is key to ensuring your next installation is a successful one.
As the heat rises to the ceiling, it drops to around 61˚F. According to an article published by the Radiant Panel Association, a radiant heated floor will remain at a surface temperature that is usually lower than human body temperature, and its surface will feel neutral. The floor will only feel warm to the touch during very cold days when the floor is turned onto to its maximum output settings.
If you are considering having radiant heat installed in your home or business, it is important to hire the right radiant heat contractor to assure the job is done properly. As new products are introduced and radiant heat technology changes over time, one should select a radiant heat contractor that is familiar with the latest technology, and that is familiar with the top names in the radiant heat industry. It is also important to hire a radiant heat contractor who is knowledgeable about green energy and high-efficiency to help consumers save money, and to help the environment.
