Radiant Floor Heating

The Energy-Efficient, Clean, and Quiet Comfort you deserve

What is Radiant Heat?

Radiant heat refers to a heating method where heat is transferred directly from a warm surface to objects and people in a room. This transfer occurs through infrared radiation, similar to the way the sun warms the earth. Radiant heat can be generated by various sources, including radiant panels, radiators, or even heated walls or ceilings. The key characteristic of radiant heat is its ability to provide consistent warmth without relying on the circulation of air, making it an efficient and comfortable heating solution.


Applications and Functionality

Radiant Heat is a versatile heating method that involves direct heat transfer from a warm surface, offering various applications and functionalities. One notable application is radiant floor heat, where heating panels are installed beneath the floor surface to deliver efficient and comfortable warmth, starting from the ground up.

What is Radiant Floor Heat?

Radiant floor heat is a specific application of radiant heating, where the heating system, hydronic or electric, is installed beneath the floor of a room. In radiant floor heating systems, hot water tubing or electric cables, and radiant heat panels or electric mats, are embedded within the floor structure to generate heat. As the warm surface of the floor radiates heat upward, it warms the objects and people in the room, creating a comfortable and evenly distributed warmth throughout the space.

Why choose Radiant Floor over Forced Air Heating?

Forced hot air is the most common heating method in North America, but radiant floor heating is more comfortable, energy-efficient, and healthier.

Radiant Floor Heating benefits

Radiant infloor heating, on the other hand, are silent, invisible, and energy-efficient. They also distribute heat evenly throughout your home, so you’ll always be comfortable.

Here are just a few of the benefits of radiant floor heating:

  • Energy efficiency: Radiant floor heating systems are up to 30% more energy-efficient than forced hot air systems. This means you’ll save money on your heating bill every month.
  • Comfort: Radiant floor heating warms your body directly, so you’ll feel comfortable even at lower temperatures. This is especially beneficial for people with arthritis or other medical conditions that make them sensitive to cold.
  • Health: Radiant floor heating systems don’t stir up dust and allergens like forced hot air systems do. This is ideal for people with asthma or allergies.
  • Quiet: Radiant floor heating systems are silent, so you won’t be bothered by the noise of a blower fan.
