Radiant Heat is Easier than You Think

When most of us think about our home heating system, we think of a complicated maze of air ducts, furnaces and vents. The installation of a central heating system is well beyond the expertise of the average home owner, but what about a radiant heating system? Advances in radiant technology have come a long way since radiant underfloor heating was first introduced to North America, and electric radiant systems are environmentally friendly because they run more efficiently than the average gas furnace and run independent of harmful fossil fuels. On top of all that – radiant heat provides unparalleled comfort and even heating that forced air system only dream of providing.

A common misconception about radiant heating is that it can only go beneath hard surfaces such as tile. While tile IS a great option coupled with radiant heat, it’s not the only option! Danfoss and Ideal Heat together provide a radiant solution for just about any kind of flooring you can think of. The best part? You can install it yourself! If you want to start small with a bathroom, electric radiant heating systems make it easy to heat small areas by room without affecting the rest of the home. The only problem – once you start with one room, you’ll want radiant heat for the whole house!
