How Do Radiant Heating Systems Work?

A radiant heating system heats the floor of your home or panels behind the walls or ceiling directly. The heat from these surfaces then reaches people and objects in the room through infrared radiation. There are a number of ways that radiant heating systems may be installed in your home, including radiant heating panel installations in walls and several different types of radiant floor heating. Hydronic floor heating is by far the most popular, but to be sure that you make the right decision about what radiant heating choice is right for your home call the professionals at Comfort Central.

Benefits of Radiant Heating in the Asheville, NC Area

There are a number of benefits that radiant heating systems have to offer to your home. By heating the walls or floors of your home directly radiant heating systems are able to provide a very even, comfortable heating experience. There are a lot of energy source you can use to heat the liquid that is circulated throughout tubing beneath your floor. Gas, oil or even wood fired boilers can be used, as well as technology as diverse as solar water heaters. To discuss the energy sources available to you contact your local heating service provider.

Because radiant heating systems do not depend on a forced air distribution system to heat your home they are not prone to the energy losses commonly associated with air ducts. Many forced air systems do not work at full efficiency levels due to damaged or poorly insulated or designed ductwork systems. Radiant heating eliminates the need for ductwork altogether.

Plus, forced air systems can cause indoor air quality issues that are not a concern for those with radiant heating systems. No air is stirred up, causing allergens and other pollutants to become airborne. There are no air ducts for these airborne allergens to circulate through, causing discomfort in residents with allergies or respiratory issues.
