Waking up in the morning, mustering the strength to get out of bed, stretching out your legs and getting a cool rush up your whole body when you feel the temperature of the floor. It can certainly wake you up, but just as easily it can send you scurrying back under your covers.
Delta Air Systems has the solution: Radiant In-Floor Heating.
This is also known as hydronic heating. To sum it up, this type of heating system is made possible by circulating warm water through tubing laid beneath your floor.
Radiant heating systems are energy efficient. Radiant heat envelopes you in a warmth, usually at lower temperatures, so you use less fuel to be more comfortable. Since it is done beneath your floor, it can be more expensive upfront, but you will reap the rewards for years to come.
Unlike a forced air system or an electric baseboard convector, radiant heating heats the objects in the room, making anywhere you sit more comfortable and the temperature more consistent. People can forget that the objects in your home retain hot and cold temperatures, so depending on where your ducts are, your current system might leave many hot and cold spots.
Think about seat warmers in cars. Just sitting on a warm object can make a significant difference in your comfort level.
Using Radiant heat can reduce one of the most common grievances associated with forced air systems. Dust and debris disperse and distribute throughout your home by way of the ducting. This is especially annoying for people with allergies but in general it is one of the main contributors to poor air quality in a home.
Are you renovating or thinking of upgrading your comfort system? Consider incorporating a radiant in-floor heating system into your home. It’s a whole new level of comfort!
