When you’re visiting with potential or current customers, the question may arise, “Isn’t radiant heat a luxury I can do without?” And, how then do you answer that question? Sure, radiant heat is, in fact a luxury, but there is strong merit in the added value and functionality that it offers to your customers.
Let’s first start with the resale value of radiant heating, which in a down market can be an “easy sell.” One in every five people or 20% of potential home buyers say that floor heating is a desired luxury when searching for and buying a new home. No matter the type of home, across the US - floor heating is one of the hottest selling points on the market!
On the side of functionality, it’s important to know that comfort and efficiency are the two main reasons why potential homebuyers and homeowners alike, love radiant heating.
Additionally, investing in eco-friendly improvements in your customer’s home reduces emissions and saves them money – from tax breaks to lower energy bills. The energy needed for floor heating, which can be used as a primary heat source, that's two-thirds of the energy required for standard central forced-air heating.
Floor heating is an affordable luxury that not only saves your customer money but also encourages a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. The silent heat has no air ducts, which eliminates blown air, decreasing dust mites by 80 percent. While electric radiant heat also allows for healthy heat absorption that enriches the skin in the same way the sun provides radiating warmth.
So, let’s really break it down. Take note of this overview, crafted into easy talking points that you can use when speaking with your clients about the value and function of radiant heat in their home:
