HomeworX: Radiant Floor Heating
Do you dread waking up and walking barefoot on a cold floor? Well, If you’re in the process of planning a renovation or building your new home, consider installing radiant floor heating. It’s an energy efficient way to keep warm and also, delivers a sense of comfort, especially on those cold winter mornings. As a builder of many homes and contractor on many rebuilds and renovations, I have experienced radiant floor heating in other people’s homes and first-hand in my own family’s home.
As we reach the heart of winter, I thought I’d give you these few great reasons why radiant underfloor heating is a good idea for you and your new home:
Floor heating systems heat the entire floor, which leads to an evenly heated room, without those cold dead spots where vents just don’t reach;
Unlike forced air systems that use a furnace, radiant floor systems are known for being very quiet;
No blowing vents, which means dust and allergens remain undisturbed;
Efficient in terms of retaining heat;
Hydronic radiant floor heating is virtually an invisible system
