How Does Radiant Heating Work?
Radiant heating is a new, eco-friendly way to heat your home. It works on the simple physics principle that heat rises. Conventional systems force air past a heat source then blow the warmed air out to your home. As it turns out, this is a very inefficient way to heat your home.
Conventional systems use ductwork that can account for efficiency losses of up to 40%. In a radiant system, heat is delivered directly to the rooms of your house by electricity or heated water. The rising heat creates a convection cycle that distributes the warm air completely around the room.
There are several types of radiant systems but they work on the same principle. Heat sources can be from electric resistance devices or heated water. The heat can be conveyed by underfloor heating or within the walls of your home.
Perks of Radiant Heating
Radiant heating may be unfamiliar to some, but it’s slowly gained popularity throughout the area because of its benefits. If you’re on the fence as to whether a radiant heating system installation is right for your Nashua, NH home, consider the following:
- Comfort: Since warmth comes from the floor and walls, rooms feel more comfortable. Furthermore, thermostats can be set lower because the heat comes from down low and radiates up across your body.
- Lower Utility Costs: Most of the cold that enters your home in the winter comes in through the outside walls. Since radiant systems line the walls and floors of your home, no drafts are allowed inside. Furthermore, rooms can be zoned so you don’t have to heat rooms that aren’t in use.
- Silence: Radiant heating systems radiate heat naturally with no need for fans and blowers. Radiant heating systems operate totally silently.
- Improved Air Quality: As conventional systems run, they stir up and redistribute dust. Since there are no fans, radiant heaters keep your indoor air quality safer.
