What is a Radiant Heating System?
A radiant heating system is an electrical heating system, but one that doesn’t use air to transport heat. Instead, special heating coils are installed in the walls or subfloor of each room in the home. All of these coils are connected to the central unit. When the system is turned on, it runs an electrical current through the heating coils throughout the house. The heat from the coils radiates up through the floor and into the room to warm it.

There are a wide range of benefits to installing a radiant heating system in your home. Radiant heating systems are more efficient than traditional forced air heating systems. When warm air is pumped into a room, it will naturally rise to the top of the room and sinks as it cools. This creates uncomfortable hot and cold spots throughout the house. Radiant in–floor heating transmits thermal energy between solid objects, like furniture. This keeps all of the heat near the floor of the room, where it will be more beneficial.
Radiant heating systems also avoid one of the major pitfalls of ducted systems: duct leaks. While individual duct leaks tend to be quite small, they add up quickly. The average forced air system loses up to 30% of its total output to duct leaks. That’s nearly a third of the system’s output going to waste. With radiant heating, you never have to worry about energy being lost on the way to its destination.
Radiant heating systems will ensure that your home is evenly heated, as efficiently as possible. If you want to make your home more energy efficient without sacrificing output, a radiant heating system is an excellent way to do it.
