Radiant heating systems involve supplying heat directly to the floor or to panels in the wall or ceiling of a house. The systems depend largely on radiant heat transfer: the delivery of heat directly from the hot surface to the people and objects in the room via the radiation of heat, which is also called infrared radiation. Radiant heating is the effect you feel when you can feel the warmth of a hot stovetop element from across the room. When radiant heating is located in the floor, it is often called radiant floor heating or simply floor heating. Radiant heating in your Summit County, Colorado home can make the cold winters much more comfortable.
What is the value of radiant heating?
Quiet, comfortable, clean, durable, efficient
- Radiant heating is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating because no energy is lost through ducts.
- The lack of moving air is advantageous to people with severe allergies.
- Hydronic (liquid-based) systems use little electricity, a benefit for homes off the power grid or in areas with high electricity prices. The hydronic systems are heated with a wide variety of energy sources, including standard gas- or oil-fired boilers, wood-fired boilers, solar water heaters, or some combination of these heat sources.
