Though the technology has been around for decades, many people still do not understand some of the benefits that come with the installation of a radiant heating system. Certain products, like those available from Warmboard, have a number of advantages that homeowners are not cognizant of, and through their questions others may be able to see how much of a change can come from using this type of heating system.
When people ask about the reasons for installing a Warmboard radiant heating system, it is easy to get overexcited, due to the number of advantages that can be pointed out.
The system is more comfortable, as warm floors greet visitors to a home, cold mornings are made more pleasant and the heat simply emanates beneath one's feet, making the installation something that helps to bring people together in a more pleasant atmosphere.
When looking past comfort to efficiency, Warmboard radiant heating systems are also a clear cut above forced air heating.
The radiant heating is more efficient due to the ability of these systems to limit the stratification of warmth, the ability of a homeowner to set certain zones and the technology helps to provide a feeling of warmth, much like the sun does on a cool day. This limits the need for the system to be put at excessively high temperatures, a common practice in terms of conventional, forced-air systems.
The system also doesn't require the use of contaminant producing fixtures like radiators, heating ducts and air vents, all of which contribute harmful toxins to the air. It also runs quietly, eliminating the pings and pangs that are often heard in older products.
