More and more Edmonton and area homeowners are opting for in-floor heating systems, also known as hydronic heating or radiant floor heating. In-floor radiant heat is a consistent type of heating that works by installing a system of pipes beneath your flooring. Heated water is sent through the system of pipes, warming the flooring from below.
Benefits of in-Floor Heating Systems
Hydronic heating systems are at least 25% more efficient than forced-air heating systems, which means lower monthly heating costs and a reduced environmental impact.
Because hydronic in-floor heating systems are installed beneath the entire floor of a given room, your space is heated consistently and does not have any cold patches.
Once your hydronic in-floor heating has been installed, it is virtually maintenance free and will last for many years to come.
Unlike other heating systems, in-floor heating is completely silent when it’s running, which means your home is not only warm, but peaceful as well.
No More Cold Floors
Is there anything worse than getting out of bed on a cold winter’s morning and touching your bare feet to a freezing cold floor? Since in-floor radiant heating systems warm your home from the floor up, you don’t have to worry about cold floors anymore.
Doesn’t Reduce Air Quality
Forced air heating systems can blow dust and allergens around, reducing the air quality in your home. Because underfloor heating systems do not blow heat into the air, they do not reduce your home indoor air quality.
