Radiant heating is a healthier way to heat your home than forced air heating. Forced air systems can spread dust, allergens, and viruses throughout your home, which can trigger allergies and asthma symptoms. They can also be loud and disruptive, and they can heat your home unevenly, leaving some parts too hot and others too cold.

Here are some of the health benefits of radiant heating

A Better Night’s Sleep

Install radiant heating and wake up refreshed! Radiant floor heating is silent. You won’t hear fans going on and off all night long, and you won’t be bothered by the sudden whoosh of air through the ducts or banging in the radiators as you’re trying to sleep.

Radiant heating responds more quickly to temperature changes, providing more even temperatures, which eliminates waking up in the middle of the night to toss off or throw on a blanket. And because radiant heat allows you to control the heat room by room, you can set your bedroom temperature exactly how you prefer it, regardless of the desired temperatures in other rooms.

Improved Air Quality

With no ducts to distribute warm air, radiant heating reduces the number of airborne particles, viruses and dust mites that circulate throughout your home. These particles can cause or exacerbate asthma and allergies, and without them, you breathe better and stay healthier. As Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is improved, the home’s occupants experience a reduction in allergies and incidents of asthma. Dust mite populations can be reduced by as much as 90%.

In addition, a forced hot air system tends to dry out the air, and the lack of humidity can irritate skin and sinuses.

Other Health Benefits

Radiant heat therapy has been used in many parts of the world to treat patients suffering from arthritis. It is known to relieve the pain of backaches, bursitis, fibromyalgia and other skeletal/muscular ailments. Further, radiant heat is believed to be effective in improving blood circulation, helping to improve athletic performance, burn calories and stimulate natural healing. See more about Aging in Place.
