Radiant floor heating provides direct heat to the floors of a house. By using infrared radiation technology, radiant floor heating is able to deliver heat directly from the surface to the people and objects in the room. Many homeowners who are performing a home addition will add radiant floor heating to make the new rooms more comfortable during the winter months. To find answers to your questions about installing radiant floor heating, read this article.
How Does Radiant Floor Heating Work?
Radiant floor heating systems circulate warm water through flexible plastic tubing called cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) found beneath or inside the floor. By carrying the warm water, PEX tubing is able to heat the floor to distribute even heat that does not create noise or even a draft.
Can the Floor Get Too Hot?
A high-quality radiant floor heating system delivers energy-efficient warmth without creating a safety issue for people, furniture, pets, or carpets. You can safely walk, lie, or sit on a floor heated by a radiant heating system.
