Want to control the temperature of each room in your house? One word: Zoning.

Most forced air heated homes have a single thermostat, and therefore a single zone. This is due to the fact that forced air systems are inherently difficult, and expensive, to zone. Radiant homes have numerous zones because they are easy and inexpensive to create. This allows you to keep one bedroom at 66ºF (19ºC), another ...

Hot air rises. Learn why this is not ideal for your home.

We all learned growing up that “heat rises”. This isn’t totally accurate, but “hot air” does rise. In general this is a good thing, especially for the hot air balloon industry. But in a home, it is problematic. When hot air is pumped through a duct, it is typically between 120–140ºF (49–60ºC). This hot air ... Hot air rises. Learn why this is not ideal for your home.

Parasitic Heat Loss? Learn how the design of a system limits its performance and efficiency.

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. One of the downsides to forced-air heating is “parasitic loss” – a term that refers to energy loss due to inherent inefficiencies ... Parasitic Heat Loss?

“Striping.” What it is and why it matters.

With a radiant floor heating system, the tubing beneath the floor emanates the heat. This heat radiates out across the floor, keeping the the surface warm. But understandably, the further you get from the tubing, the less intense the heat becomes. This difference in temperatures across the surface of the floor is called “striping”. To ... “Striping.” What it is and why it matters.

Feeling the wrong temperature at the wrong time of the day from your radiant system? It’s called “overshoot.”

It’s a common issue with high mass systems. They produce too little heat in the morning, so you turn up the heat. As the day warms, and the interior of your house gets too warm, you turn the heat off – but the high mass continues to produce heat for several hours. The only solution ...
