Why You Should Consider Radiant Floor Heating for 2017


The winter is a tough time for those who have hard surface flooring at home. Getting out of the bed in the morning bare foot can be one of the most unpleasant feelings in the world. Rather than suffering on the cold floor, consider installing radiant floor heating.

Lower Monthly Bills
Radiant floor heating systems warm a room from the floor up, rather than coming from the vents. This will allow the room to be heated more evenly as well as allowing you to feel the warmth from the ground up. Many people with this type of heating system will set a lower temperature on the thermostat, compared to those with traditional heating systems. Thus, lowering your monthly heating bills.

Of any heating system, radiant floor heating is the most reliable and durable. While normal furnaces and heat pumps can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years, radiant heating systems can last up to 35 years! A lifespan that’s roughly double that of a furnace can offset any high installation prices that radiant floor heating may have.

Quiet As a Mouse, Clean As a Whistle
Unlike HVAC systems with ducts and blowers, radiant heating is the quietest option when it comes to heating your home. Along with not having to hear the system kick on and pump heat through your home, there will be less allergens spread throughout the house. Ductwork and blowers will push dust, dirt, pollen, and other debris into the air of your home, lowering the overall air quality.

Radiant floor heating is the perfect heating system for those who are looking to install new, or replace their current hard surface flooring and heating system.
