HVAC FAQ: Why Choose Radiant Heating

radiant-in-floor-heatingGeorgia does not get as cold in the winter as some areas in the Northeast or the Midwest, but it still gets more than cold enough to demand a great performance from your home heating system. If you are planning on replacing an existing heating system, or if you are ready to choose your new heater for a brand new property under construction, then we strongly suggest that you consider radiant heating. The benefits are too great to overlook.

In-floor radiant heating systems may best be installed at the time of construction, but they can also be installed any time that you are doing a remodeling project or feel comfortable having your floors taken up to allow for the installation. It’s a big job, but it is one that we excel in and which we are more than capable of handling in a timely and professional manner. Consider the benefits of using radiant heating in your home, and contact the Canton HVAC pros on our team for more details. 

How Does In-Floor Radiant Heating Work?

Some of the most common heating systems, including heat pumps and gas or electric furnaces, are forced-air heating systems. These systems offer prompt and generally effective heating in many homes, but they have many drawbacks, as well. In fact, every heating system does. Finding your next heater is not about finding a “perfect” heater, but rather about finding the perfect heater for your personal user preferences.

Unlike a forced air heating system, radiant heating systems do not heat air and distribute it throughout the house. instead, they heat surfaces in the home directly, allowing that heat to radiate out toward objects in the living space, warming them directly. These include furniture and human bodies. The most common method of radiant heating is the in-floor system.

All electric in-floor radiant heating systems are used in some applications, but hydronic in-floor systems tend to be preferred. In such systems, water is heated by a boiler, and that water is then distributed throughout the house via tubes installed beneath the floors. This method of heating can benefit you in a few ways.

  • In-floor radiant heating keeps heat down in the living space, where it belongs. Hot air rises, and forced air heating can be problematic in that regard.
  • In-floor radiant heating systems have very few moving parts. This can help to make them more dependable than their forced air counterparts.
  • In-floor radiant heating means that you don’t have to worry about air leaks in ductwork. This helps to heat the house evenly, and to prevent energy loss.
  • In-floor radiant heating does not stir up dust and dirt the way that forced air heating may. That helps to protect your indoor air quality and to avoid issues with aggravated allergies/asthma/respiratory conditions.
