What is Radiant Floor Heating?
September 13, 2018Categories: Radiant Floor Heating
Do you wish you could walk barefoot in your home during the cooler months without your feet being cold? If you’re building a new house or remodeling your current home, Radiant Floor Heating may be the best option for you.
Radiant floor heating is an under-the-floor heating system that conducts heat through a floor’s surface. Also known as underfloor heating, radiant heat makes it easier to control the temperature of each room in your house. This allows you to turn the heat up infrequently used rooms and turn the temperature down in unused rooms to save energy.
This energy-efficient heating method can also improve your indoor air quality by helping to eliminate pollen, dust, viruses, mold, and microbes. Radiant floor systems heat below the ground instead of blowing air and dust throughout your house. This can help family members who suffer from asthma, allergies or respiratory ailments.

Two Common Types of Radiant Floor Heat
Electric Radiant Floor Heating
This heating system is more affordable to install but is generally more expensive to operate. Electric radiant floor heating is ideal for small spaces.
Hydronic Radiant Floor Heating
While this system has a higher installation cost, it is typically less expensive to operate. If you’re looking to heat a large space or your entire home, this system is most likely the best option for you. One thing to keep in mind is that hydronic radiant floor heating systems require heated water from a boiler or water heater.
