Why Choose Radiant Heat?

  • Comfort: Nothing comes even close to the comfort of a radiant heat system. The technology works much the same as how the sun heats your body. Heat is dispensed evenly from the floor, but does not rise because we are heating the objects in a given space, not the air. It’s a natural feel and you can enjoy a warm chair and warm floors while walking barefoot in the wintertime.
  • Clean: Radiant heating systems are just about hypoallergenic. Since the air is not forced, you don’t have to be concerned about the heating system distributing pollen, dust and other allergens in the home.
  • Energy Efficient: On the whole, they are more efficient than baseboard heating and forced-air heating. With forced air-heating, up to 30 percent of the heat is lost due to ductwork alone. Again, hot air rises. Therfore, when heating a builing envelope with hot air, the space must be filled with hot air from the ceiling down until it reaches your actual living space. With radiant heat, the taller the ceilings, the better efficiency gains in comparison.
  • Whisper Quiet: Without blowers, there are no noisy fans, and the home is peaceful.
  • Attractive: This underfloor heating system eliminates inconvenient floor and wall registers.
  • Zoning: These systems are easy to zone and offer room-to-room temperature control with multiple thermostats.
  • Versatility: Radiant systems can use a wide variety of fuel sources to heat the liquid, including solar water heaters, geothermal heat pumps, high efficiency gas boilers, wood gasification boilers or oil boilers.
