Radiant floor heating for the home can be done efficiently through electric or hydraulic systems. These systems work by running electric cables or hot water tubes under the floor. The heat from the system rises via convection, warming people and objects in the room much like one that would be warmed by the heat of a stove.
Radiant heating systems work without moving air, therefore less heat is lost making them more efficient and sustainable. Additionally, less chaotic floor air creates a more comfortable environment for people who have allergies. Built in radiant heat systems boost a home's market value too.
If you're looking into home renovation, this is a great way to keep it green!
