Ways You Can Have Radiant Heat
Radiant heat has been around for a long time. These days many references to radiant heat are specific to radiant floor heating, but if you’ve seen or had radiators, baseboard heating, or a woodstove in your home, you’ve had radiant heat. This is because radiant heat occurs when a specific object is heated—like flooring—and that object then heats your space.
There are two main ways to attain radiant heat: via hot water or steam, known as hydronic heating, or via electric cables that radiate heat when electrified. When using a hydronic system, you’ll need a boiler for your home. Today’s boilers can be very energy efficient and typically last between 15—20 years. Electric cables can be installed directly on subflooring or in cement, also known as a "wet installation." Your Skylake Heating & Air expert can review your radiant heating options with you and help you choose the right system for your home.
Why Consider a Radiant Heating System?
Warm feet aside, there are a number of great benefits a radiant heating system can offer you:
Gentle, comfortable heat — Whether your radiant heat comes from a baseboard heater or from your floor, the heat from a radiant system is gentle and contains more moisture than that of a forced air system, making it very comfortable. It’s much better for allergy sufferers — Forced–air systems can swirl dust and aggravating allergens around a home with each heating cycle. This won’t ever be an issue with a radiant heating system. Radiant systems can be easily zoned — Both hydronic and electrical radiant systems can be easily zoned, giving you the opportunity to customize your comfort.
