3 Reasons To Install A Radiant Heating System

One of the more impressive and comfortable heating systems available is a radiant heating system, mostly because of the many benefits that it can provide when compared to a traditional heating system. A radiant heating system is typically designed to utilize water pipes or electric pads to heat up the floors and walls of your home, which in turn heat up the air within your home. Listed below are three reasons to seriously consider installing a radiant heating system.


A radiant heating system is a very flexible system that offers you a lot of customization options. For example, you can easily have a radiant heating system installed in only a few rooms of your house if you are on a budget or simply do not need to have radiant heating in every room. 

Another aspect of radiant heating that can offer you a lot of flexibility is the fact that it is often set up to accommodate heating zones. Heating zones are programmable zones that allow you to designate which rooms or area of the home are to be heated when each zone is active. This allows you to avoid wasting energy or money by heating empty rooms because you can simply choose to only activate those zones that people are actually in rather than heating the whole house at once.

Clean Air

A radiant heating system is also a good choice if you want or need to keep the air in your home as clean as possible. A radiant system does not use a fan to move air around, which means that it will not shift and move dust or other potential allergens throughout your home. In addition, since no vents or ducts are used with a radiant heating system, the heating system does not provide a spot for dust and allergens to build up before spreading into the home.

Quiet Operation

Another great reason to utilize a radiant heating system is that you will not be able to hear the heating system operate. When you have a forced-air or furnace-based heating system, you will often hear the sound of the air rushing through your vents or the sound of the furnace heating up the air. If the furnace is not located in an out of the way area, such as a basement, then the amount of noise that it can generate will be quite intrusive and irritating. However, a radiant heating system does not use fans or a furnace to heat and move air. This means that the system will not generate enough noise to disturb you.
