What exactly is radiant heating?
Traditional heating systems propel heated air through a room. Radiant heating systems work more like the sun, by directing energy onto objects in the room. The heat is generally supplied through the floor, walls, or ceiling. If the heat is coming from the floor, for example, it will radiate towards individuals or other objects in the room. This is a more energy efficient way to heat an entire room without leaving cold spots.

What are the benefits?
Forced air heating systems can contribute to significant air loss from drafts and ineffective ductwork. You can lose as much as 30% of the heat you need with forced air systems. Radiant heating systems eliminate problems with drafts.
Since radiant heating proves energy efficient, installing this type of system can help you lower your electricity costs as well. Radiant heating is ideal in areas with high electricity costs or for homes that are off the power grid. You can use a range of energy sources to power your radiant system, including wood-fired boilers, gas boilers, or solar water heaters.
Other benefits you can enjoy with a newly installed radiant heating system:
- Reduced allergies (radiant heating does not spread debris or allergens, unlike forced air systems)
- Quiet operation (no noisy blowers or fans)
- Customized heating in individual rooms with zoning features
How much energy can you save?
If you are thinking about investing in radiant heating for your home, you may be wondering how much money you can save with this system. While radiant heating proves more efficient than other heating methods, there are a number of factors that influence how much you can save.
For example, the size of your space, the amount of energy your current heating system uses, and your desired indoor temperature are just a few of the factors that can impact savings. Our team can provide you with customized information about the savings you can expect in your home.
Investing in a new heating system can drastically improve your home comfort level. Contact our team at Colonial Plumbing & Heating Co., Inc. to find out if a radiant heating system is right for you.
