When it comes to taking care of the heating in your home, if your heating bill is out of control, you may want to consider installing a radiant floor heating system. A radiant floor heating system can offer many benefits.
With a radiant heating system, the heating system is literally installed under your floors. The heat then warms up your floors and radiates upward, filling your home with heat over time. Radiant heat helps to provide a consistent temperature throughout your space.
The temperature is much more consistent than with a forced-air system, where the temperature that comes out can differ greatly from the floor to the ceiling and from one room to another.
Better Air Quality
Second, with a radiant floor heating system, you will enjoy better air quality. The heat will literally radiate upward from your floor without the need to be forced throughout your home using a system of moving air. With a regular duct heating system, the air has to be forced through your home using a fan.
This can send dust and dirt throughout your home, decreasing the air quality. With radiant heating, dirt and dust are not constantly being pushed through your home, allowing you to breathe easier.
With a forced-air system, you have to hear the heating system turn on, and you will hear the air coming out through the vents. Forced air systems make a lot of noise, which can take away from the feeling of a peaceful ambiance in your home.
With a radiant floor heating system, it operates much more quietly. You may be able to slightly hear the system working if your house is completely silent. This much quieter operation system will help create a much more peaceful ambiance feeling in your home.
Finally, with a radiant floor heating system, you don't need to worry about maintenance or repairs. With a forced heating air system, you have to deal with changing out the filter. You also have to deal with things such as fixing broken coils and damaged fans. A radiant floor system frees you from having to worry about maintenance.
If you want to change your heating system to something that is more affordable, provides you with consistent temperature throughout your home, better air quality, a quieter home, and no regular maintenance to worry about, contact a radiant floor heating contractor near you.
