How Does Radiant Heat Work?
Radiant heating, also known as hydronic or in-floor heating, is an alternative HVAC method that heats your home from the bottom up. Your boiler sends hot water through tubing that’s installed under your floorboards or tiles. Heat then rises via steam from that hot water to warm up your floors, your toes, and eventually, your entire house. It’s an incredibly energy-efficient heating method that benefits you in so many ways.
How You Can Benefit From a Radiant Heating System
- Improved energy efficiency—Water is a much more efficient conductor of heat than air. It won’t use as much energy to produce and maintain heat as a furnace will.
- Perfect comfort—The heat that rises from the tubing spreads in an even layer across your whole house. You won’t have to put up with cold spots or an inefficient ductwork layout.
- Better indoor air quality—The forced air that a furnace generates can push air pollutants through your house, including dust, dirt, and even viruses. Radiant heating systems eliminate that circulation because they use steam for heat, not forced air.
Quiet operation—You won’t hear any humming or clicking noises when these systems run.
Heated floors—Imagine waking up on winter mornings and stepping out of bed without worrying about cold toes.
