The Affordable Luxury of Radiant Floor Heat

I can’t think of a better time to talk about warm floors than January and February. What are warm floors? I’m sure by now you have heard of radiant heat. Electric radiant heat is a taste of heaven here on earth. Walk into a home with radiant floor heating and then one with traditional forced air heat. Tell me which one was more comfortable. There is no comparison in my opinion. Take your shoes off and soak it all in. The old adage that when your feet are warm you feel warm all over is so true.

One of the key benefits of a floor heating system is that they are easily adaptable to your needs. You can set each room to maintain the temperature you want. Each room can have its own thermostat. Shutting down rooms that aren’t being used is as easy as pushing a button. Electric radiant heat utilizes heating cable installed under the finished floor surface. Each room then has its own sensor.

If I were designing my next home it would most definitely have a heated floor. I’d sit and watch the snow come down and wiggle my sock clad feet around on the floor.

The Smart, Modern way to Heat Your Home

During the coldest time of year it’s comforting to know that we have ways of maintaining our comfort as we sit at home in the evenings. One of the best ways of combating the cold weather is through the use of heated floors. Radiant floor heating is an energy-efficient, toasty way to stay warm. When your home heating starts from the ground up, you may be surprised how effective heating your home this way is. Radiant floor heating system being installed under hardwood.When your feet are warm it is so much easier to be comfortable. Underfloor heat is a smart, modern way of providing heat for the home. Unlike forced air systems that circulate heated air, warm floors heat from the floor up meaning there are no allergens being kicked into the air or drafts of heat being wasted up at the ceiling. Heated floor systems are also silent as well so you won’t need to relocate when the fan kicks on.

Increased efficiency is also a product of these systems as the heat is applied where you need it. Unless you plan on putting your chair up on the ceiling you will enjoy the heat down low where you live and work. You can also heat each room independently as each “zone” will have its own thermostat. Try that with most forced air systems.

Warm floors, as they have become known as, would be my first choice in a home heating system – hands down. If you haven’t experienced heated floors, do yourself that favor and try it. Chances are, your next call will be to arrange the installation.
