What is Radiant Heating?
If you’ve ever felt the warmth of the sun, you’ve felt radiant heat.
Radiant heating is the transfer of radiant energy from a heat source to another object. With radiant heating, you aren’t heating the air in the room, as in conventional convection heating. You’re heating the objects in the room, including the people in it. Generally, the heat energy is emitted from the floor, but occasionally from walls or overhead panels.
Two Main Types of Radiant Heat
Hydronic (liquid) heating is the most common and most cost-effective type of heat in our market. Hydronic systems simply pump heated water/antifreeze through tubes laid out into patterns and zones underneath various flooring types. Zoning the hydronic systems allow for fine control of heat delivery.
Electric radiant heating consists of electric cables or mats built into the floor. These systems are great options if you need to add heat to a smaller space like a finished bathroom. However, natural gas as a heat source can be up to five times less expensive than electricity per BTU.
