Although not as common as furnaces and other types of heating systems radiant heaters in Waukee, IA homes are gaining in popularity.
These systems can be used to heat single rooms or even entire homes, and they are much more energy-efficient than other heating styles. Here’s what you need to know about radiant floor heating and how it works.
“They were on time and even scheduled to fit my needs. They were professional and responsive to my questions. Fair pricing, amazing finance options. Making my new A/C install the very next day. I am not sure it can get any better than this! I'm impressed.” - Alyce N.
Radiant heaters work by heating up water and sending it through pipes under your flooring. The heat from the water then warms the floor, keeping you warm from the ground up. Once the floor is warm, it radiates heat into the air, warming the entire space.
This process isn’t as quick as forcing hot air into a room, sometimes taking a day or so to reach the appropriate temperature. However, once it is there, the radiant heater system can easily maintain it.
Radiant floor heating offers numerous benefits, such as:
Affordable ongoing operation
Added comfort for your feet in winter
Extensive life span
Reduction of allergy symptoms
Increased home value
Installing radiant floor heating isn’t as easy as putting in baseboard heaters or a furnace, though the results are well worth the effort. Your radiant heater technicians will have to remove any existing flooring to gain access to install the pipes.
Of course, they’ll then need to replace your flooring once the pipes are in. This makes the process more costly than installing other types of heaters. However, with a typical life span of 30 to 50 years, you can recoup your investment and more over time.
You can utilize a radiant floor heating system for specific, targeted areas. Bathrooms are the most common locations for these types of systems, though they can be used in any space.
If it’s within your budget, you could even install radiant heating in every room in your home. It can work on its own or in tandem with other heating types, making it easier than ever to keep your home comfortably cozy when the temperature drops.
