The beauty of radiant heating is that the BTU’s created by your heat system is evenly distributed across the plane of your floor. The heat is always where you need it, from the feet and upwards for maximum efficiency and comfort. It is the quietest method to heat up a space since there is no forced air movement, baseboards or radiators that sometimes make their share of unwanted noise.
-Consider balanced heating and energy efficiency.
Radiant heating is well balanced throughout the floor as opposed to other heating systems. Some other systems have cold spots due to other factors like cold crawl spaces, tile flooring, or being the closest spot from an uninsulated home entrance. With radiant, you are able to control the distribution of heat evenly throughout the home since the floor is your heat source. This equalizes all the temperature across the ambiance, making you feel comfortable at a lower temperature set point. This in turn, helps reduce costs in your monthly bill making this system energy efficient.
As mentioned above, radiant heating is energy efficient. The heating element being your floor retains almost all the heat produced from the radiant tubing, as opposed to a forced air system with duct-work that could leak.
