Forced-air furnaces have been the method of choice in home heating for decades. While this is a fine choice for the average residence, we encourage homeowners to branch out and find the best solution suited to their needs. Radiant heating systems are a great option for anyone looking to save money on their energy bills, while still staying just as warm in their homes.

What is radiant heating?
Radiant heating is a form of home heating that uses panels stored within the walls, ceilings, and floors of a home to evenly distribute heat around a room. This type of heating relies on infrared heat, which is the type of heat you feel when a stove burner is on across the room. Convection causes the air to rise to the ceiling as it is warmed. Radiant floor heating is particularly popular among newly renovated homes.
What are its benefits?
Radiant heating is a fantastic alternative to traditional forced-air furnaces, because it tends to be less expensive to run. Because there are no ducts involved in the distribution of warmed air, there is no heated air lost while traveling through the duct system. Additionally, you can choose to have a hydronic liquid-based radiant heating system installed that uses very little electricity. You can also set the thermostat for each room to a different setting; this removes the need to heat rooms you are not using. Finally, people with strong allergies or asthma tend to like radiant heating systems because they do not blow allergens around the room.
How much can you save on heating costs?
Savings vary from home to home, but we can calculate an average savings based on what we know about radiant heating. It is estimated that up to 30% of heated air is lost in the duct system. Therefore, by delivering heat directly, we can estimate a savings of 30%. Add to that the savings from only heating rooms that are in use. Think about your own home and which rooms you could apply this to. Monthly energy savings increase with a hydronic system. All in all, you could see a 30-50% reduction in heating costs month to month.
