Benefits of Radiant Heating You Didn’t Know

Many homeowners in Denton, TX, have ditched the conventional radiator and switched to radiant floor heating. Thanks to the many benefits it has to offer.

Read on to find out why your home needs radiant heat, too.  

Efficient

Traditional heaters need to work at a high temperature to provide the desired level of heat. They heat the area nearest to them first—the reason why “cold spots” exist.

Radiant heating, on the other hand, runs at a relatively low temperature, thus consuming less energy and reducing energy bills. A radiant heater heats the floor without any cold spots.

That said, radiant heating is more efficient than conventional radiators.

Convenient

Once installed, radiant heating systems don’t require extensive maintenance since they are typically used as supplemental heating. Also, since the heat panels are installed within the floor, the warmth stays much longer. The system can be scheduled to run automatically, so the heating comes at the right time.

Environment-Friendly

When using a traditional heater, the oxygen level in the air is reduced causing discomfort to you and your family, particularly during the hot summer days. If you have dirty ductwork, dust quickly travels inside your home, causing health issues, such as asthma or allergies.

Radiant heating, on the other hand, keeps the indoor air fresh. It does not release dust or distribute allergens, unlike forced-air systems. It is hypoallergenic and does not require thorough cleaning.

Space-Saving

Radiant heating systems use electric coils without the need for vents or indoor equipment, so there is more space flexibility for homeowners. It does not consume wall or floor space, unlike traditional heaters. You can decorate the floor since it perfectly blends with wood, tile, stone, or carpet.

These are just a few benefits of radiant heating systems. If you’d like to know more, speak with one of our professional technicians at North Texas Heating & Air Conditioning today!
