Versatility, Reliability and Flexibility
Radiant heat delivers efficient, even, draft free thermal control in areas not comfortably conditioned by convection systems.
The number one reason consumers choose hydronic radiant floor heating is comfort. The system eliminates chilly drafts. There’s no need for fans to move air around. In today’s new home designs, hydronic radiant floor heating makes even more sense. Rooms (bathrooms included) are larger, with higher ceilings and lots of tile and other cold surfaces. with forced-air and radiator heating, these spaces generally feel cold, that’s not a problem with radiant floor heating; even the hard surfaces will feel warm to the touch.
The floor is the source of comfort. Imagine a home with no drafts, fan noise or hot or cold spots! Every inch of floor in every room is warm to the touch. The system allows great flexibility when it comes to furniture arrangement, too. With radiant floor heating, furniture can be placed anywhere because there are no grills or radiators.
The system allows great flexibility when it comes to furniture arrangement, too. With forced air or radiators, occupants must strategically place their furniture to accommodate grills or radiators, with radiant floor heating, furniture can go anywhere because there are no grills or radiators.
