The Benefits of Radiant Heating
(Information provided by Watts Radiant):
When you look at a floor warmed by radiant heating with an infrared
camera, you see how energy is broadcast from the floor. People and all the objects
in the room are bathed in radiant comfort.
Radiant heat is the same form of energy as light. Radiant heating
gently and quietly "illuminates" your living space with warmth. The floor becomes
the warmest surface in the room, not the coldest. And valuable energy isn't lost
at the ceiling, because radiant rooms don't "stack" hot air like forced systems.
In your home, hydronic or electric radiant heat systems are embedded
in your floor and the energy is broadcast to all parts of your room. Your floor
will be the warmest surface and the ceiling will be the coolest. Your thermostat
will be set lower, yet your comfort level is higher. Heat loss through infiltration
and windows is reduced saving radiant system owners money.
People find a radiant atmosphere stimulating, quieter, cleaner
and easier to breath.
Just one more thing to feel warm about.
