What is Radiant Heating?

Radiant heat is a sustainable, healthy heat that is absorbed by the environment around it. Instead of overheating causing heat loss, radiant heat keeps areas warm longer and more consistently. Studies show that physical warmth improves a persons overall mood and well-being, it’s easy to see why radiant heating solutions have become as popular as they have.

Not only does radiant heating provide comfort and warmth, but it also increases energy efficiency within your home. With the use of radiant heat as a primary heating source, temperature levels can be maintained more easily — and at a lower temperature — than any other form of heating. That means, for every degree you lower your thermostat, you can save 5% off your current heating bill. That’s 25-30% in annual savings. You can use our Cost Calculator to get an accurate operating cost within your home.

Radiant Heat: Growing in Popularity

Radiant heating systems have been an affordable source of luxury and warmth for many years, stretching back to the first system invented during the Roman Empire, and will continue to be for years to come. Nothing compares to the feeling of a warm floor, towel, and room on a cold morning or during those long, frozen winter nights.

Why Electric Heating?

There are a multitude of reasons why business at WarmlyYours is based around our electric floor heating systems and many reasons why electric floor heating may be a beneficial choice for you.

Benefits of Radiant Heating

Electric floor heating systems generate an even heat throughout your home and will not disturb dust – this reduces noise levels, keeps air from becoming too dry, and limits possible allergic reactions. The ease of installation, along with the lower cost and non-existent maintenance fees make electric floor heating systems a natural choice over water-based, or hydronic, alternatives.

Convenience and Efficiency

The time it takes to heat the floor and room is also a reason why people may choose electric. Electric heating systems are placed above the sub-floor, just under the flooring material so that the heat can rise, usually within 30 to 60 minutes, this compares favorably to water-based alternatives which are often placed 1.5" or 2" into a cement slab and can take up to 7 hours to heat up when they are first turned on.

Because of how slow water-based heating systems are, many people simply leave them on for months at a time, which consumes far more energy over the period of time. This coupled with the thermostats that allow you to preset ON-OFF cycles to provide heat only when and where you need it makes electric systems the more energy efficient.

Other reasons that you may prefer to go electric:

  • Floor elevation - Thin electric systems will elevate the floor by only 1/8" compared to adding a couple of inches to your floor's elevation when you add water-based systems.
  • Cost - When dealing with remodeling jobs and smaller bathroom it's most likely that installation costs, maintenance costs and operating costs will all be lower using and electric floor heating system than a water based one.
