RADIANT FLOOR HEATING
Radiant heating systems are those that supply heat directly to surfaces in your home, such as the floor or panels in the walls, to efficiently transfer heat to the interior. Radiant heating is not only more efficient than
baseboard and forced-air systems, which lose heat between the source and destination, it can be healthier for those with allergies since no air is disturbed during the heating process.
The most effective types of radiant heating systems are in the floor and are liquid-based, or Hydronic. These systems circulate water heated by an energy source such as a gas furnace, wood stove or solar water heater, though tubes mounted either directly in a solid floor surface, such as concrete covered with tile, or under a wood or carpeted floor.
