Product Alert: Radiant Floor Heat

September 12, 2011 5:03 pm

If you’re selling your home, or just looking to make a change to your heating system, an easy way to set your property apart from others or gain a luxurious, energy efficient feature is to install radiant floor heating. This system of heating involves supplying heat directly to the floor and is often simply referred to as floor heating. 

Radiant floor heating it is more efficient than traditional methods of heating, as no energy is lost through ducts and the heat is transferred directly from the floor surface to the people and objects in the room, which allows for both comfortable warmth in the air and toasty toes.

There are three different types of radiant floor heat: radiant air floors which use air as the heat-carrying medium; electric radiant floors; and hot water, or hydronic, radiant floors. 

To cover your radiant floor heating, you may use common flooring such as wood, vinyl or linoleum. However, any covering that insulates the floor from the room (such as carpet) will decrease the efficiency of your system. Ceramic tile is usually the most effective and common floor covering, as it conducts, holds and transfers heat well.
