you're building or remodeling, you have a lot of decisions to make...and
many choices to consider. One of your most important decisions is
your home's heating system. Your best choice just could be a radiant
floor heating system designed and installed by a knowledgeable and
Radiant floor heating is a unique, efficient and cost-effective
alternative to forced-air heating. It can save you up to 40 percent
on your heating bill.
Radiant Technology provides floor systems that
will make your home comfortable without noise, drafts, dust or high
heating bills. It turns your floors into radiators that can be zoned
to add increased comfort in rooms like bathrooms, kitchens, and
basements. You'll wonder how you lived without it.
Unlike forced air heat that blasts you with
hot air near the registers and leaves you out in the cold in hard-to-heat
areas. Radiant heating systems radiate heat throughout your home
in individual rooms, providing a comfortable, even heat. Remember,
radiant heat warms people, objects, and other surfaces, not just
Our home, the Earth uses a radiant
heating system too. The Sun's rays penetrate our atmosphere, and
heat, not the air,
but the land, the oceans, and us! Can you imagine the Earth heated
by a forced air heating system? If it was, life would
not be possible as we know it, all of the heated air would be concentrated
in the high atmosphere and the ocean's and
land masses would be a frozen wasteland.
With radiant heat, though, energy
is absorbed and re-released by the surfaces that we walk and live
on. Therefore, the
heat energy stays low where life exists and the high atmosphere
remains cold. The same principle applies to your
home, radiant heat concentrates the heat near the floor, where you
and your family can benefit the most from it.
