Have you heard of radiant flooring? It’s a type of heating system that supplies heat to the whole home via tubes or cables installed right underneath your flooring.
Benefits of Radiant Flooring
Radiant floor heating comes with huge advantages over baseboard heating and forced-air heating:
- Radiant flooring is more efficient. It doesn’t rely on ducts to move warm air, which eliminates the potential for energy losses through duct work.
- Radiant flooring is better for people with allergies. Since it doesn’t distribute air, it doesn’t spread around allergens or irritants.
- Radiant flooring leverages the natural process of convection. Heat generates in the floor and warms the room as it naturally rises into the air. No extra energy is required to distribute or move the heat around your home.
- Hydronic radiant flooring doesn’t use as much electricity. This makes it a better choice for cabins off the power grid or homes in areas with high utility costs.
Plus, radiant flooring means no more cold toes in the morning! How awesome does that sound?
