What is Radiant Heating?
Radiant heating, or in–floor heating, is a system that uses heating coils (or water pipes, in the case of boilers) to warm the home instead of air. A series of heating coils or pipes are installed in the subfloor of each room in the home that is to receive heat. All of these are connected to a central generator unit or boiler.
When the system is operating, it runs an electrical current through the heating coils in the home. As the current moves through the heating coils, much of it radiates up through the floor and into the rooms as heat. The heat is transferred between the solid objects in the room, like furniture, keeping it all near the floor where it will do the most good. In the case of hydronic heating, the same principal applies. The only difference is that the boiler uses hot water instead of an electrical current.
Advantages of Radiant Heaters
Radiant heaters have many unique advantages to offer over traditional forced air systems. First, air is actually not as effective a method for transporting heat as solid matter is. When warm air is blown into a room, it will naturally rise to the ceiling and sink as it cools off. This creates uncomfortable hot and cold spots in the room. Both hydronic and electrical radiant heating systems apply heat to the room from the ground up, which means that the space is heated much more evenly.
Radiant heating is also more energy efficient than forced air heating. Forced air heating systems must constantly contend with duct leaks, which are responsible for output loses of up to 30%. A radiant heating system does not experience these kinds of leaks, because it does not use ducts at all. You can save a substantial amount of money over time by using a radiant heating system instead of a forced air system.
Finally, radiant heating systems can actually be better for your health. Forced air heating systems circulate airborne contaminants during operation, leading to a wide range of negative health effects. Radiant heating systems do not affect air flow, and so do not cause the same problem.
