The best heating system a house can have is the one you don’t realize is there. Radiant Floor Heating provides comfort and will save you money. You can save up to 40% on fuel savings over forced hot air systems and vaulted ceilings may see even greater savings.
In a radiant setup, the warmth is supplied by hot-water tubes or electric wires buried underneath the floor. As the invisible waves of thermal radiation rise from below, they warm up any objects they strike, which radiate that captured heat in turn. Though the air temperature remains relatively constant, you stay comfortable because the surrounding surfaces aren’t stealing warmth from your body.
In contrast , forced air systems circulate hot air which moves dust and air borne particles. Pollen and mold are greatly reduced. In-floor heating is ideal for people with allergy problems.
