With the rise in energy costs and the hassle of HVAC maintenance, many
homeowners are opting for radiant heating systems. Radiant heating systems
circulate boiling water through a transfer device which distributes heat
throughout a home. Transfer devices can include in-floor units, loops
or wall radiators. Installing a radiant heating system in your home may
be a larger-than-average investment, but it provides multiple benefits
guaranteed to improve your quality of life.
Reduce Energy Costs
Radiant heating solutions, though costly to install, are capable of reducing
home energy costs by up to 50%. Over time, this significant cost savings
can more than make up for the initial system investment. Similar to the
way the sun's rays warm the earth, radiant heat systems gradually
warm your home in an energy-efficient manner.
Reduce Noise Pollution
Traditional HVAC systems can be noisy as they force air through various
ducts and into individual rooms of your home. Though usually not detectable
at first, this constant background noise adds to the amount of noise pollution
in your home. Alternatively, installing a radiant heating system provides
a significant reduction in background noise, restoring your home to its
naturally peaceful state.
Radiant heating systems provide a steady supply of warmth to any room in
your home. Compared to traditional heating units, radiant heating systems
optimize temperatures by eliminating drafts of air and reducing drastic
temperature fluctuations. This optimal heat source ensures your home remains
cozy and comfortable all year long.
Unlike other heating systems, radiant heating systems do not require air
ducts or registers. As a result, installation of a radiant heating system
to a new or old home is a relatively simple process. Since these systems
can be installed in flooring, on walls or on ceilings, radiant heating
provides homeowners with a variety of options to accommodate their lifestyle.
Improve Air Quality
When using a traditional heating system in your home, dust, particles and
allergens easily travel throughout air ducts. As a traditional heating
system distributes air, these particles travel from room to room and pollute
the air quality in your home. In comparison, radiant heating systems do
not require the circulation of heated air to warm your home. As a result,
radiant heating can significantly improve the air quality of your home
while protecting the health of your family.
One of the best reasons to install a radiant heat system is the ability
to customize indoor temperatures. Whether you desire variable temperatures
from room to room, or simply want to reduce overall energy use throughout
the home, radiant heat allows homeowners to adjust the temperature of
a room via individual thermostats.
Some radiant heating systems are designed to receive and store the sun's
energy, meaning your home is able to harness the power of the sun to distribute
warmth indoors. While installation of these systems may be a bit more
expensive, the ability to conserve natural resources is an attractive
feature that helps protect the environment.
