Energy efficiency has always been one of the key reasons for building a home with radiant heat. Given the rapidly escalating cost of energy, the efficiency of radiant has never been more important. Here's how energy use differs between technologies.
Over the past few decades, it has become working knowledge than installing hardwood flooring over radiant heating is unwise. And as the radiant heating and flooring industries have grown and changed, this understanding has grown and changed as well. Here we take a look at the history of these industries and learn the origin of the issue. But we also look at the solution.
The primary role of a radiant heating product is to conduct heat. A radiant panel needs to transfer the heat from the water in the tubing to the interior of your home. Through experience, we all know that materials with high conductivity, metal for example, transfer heat more quickly than materials with low conductivity (wood, stone, cloth...). But when considering which radiant heating product to purchase, considering the conductivity per dollar of that product is important.
