Benefits of Radiant Heating Systems
- Thermal efficiency – Radiant floor systems not only heat up a space, but gently warm the surfaces within a room providing heat efficiency at a lower overall room temperature. Most systems allow for a comfortable temperature reduction of 5 – 7 degrees.
- Zone Control – The radiant system permits variable heat management that allow you to select specific areas or rooms to be heated at different temperatures within a single system
- Elimination of air-borne allergens – Since radiant heating does not involve air circulation, the airborne particles associated with asthma and allergy irritants present in traditional heating systems, are non-existent. Radiant heating is a tidy and hygienic system that does not distribute dust, odors or germs throughout a home or commercial location.
- Durability – For industrial locations in particular, a concrete slab radiant heating system is virtually indestructible and ideal for cost effective heating to any industrial building, entertainment areas and residential basements.
- Energy Efficiency – Radiant heat systems can sustain a comfortable heating at lower temperatures by heating objects and individuals without wasting heat where it is not needed reducing consumption and costs significantly.
