Why Choose Radiant Heating?
Unlike furnaces or heat pumps, which distribute heated air throughout a home, radiant heating systems heat surfaces in the home directly, such as floors or wall/ceiling panels, in order to heat the house via radiant heat transfer. This is the delivery of heat from hot surfaces to other objects in the room, people included, and is facilitated by infrared radiation. This type of heating allows for the even adjustment of temperatures throughout a house, leaving residents to feel comfortable while enjoying an efficient heating performance. There is no risk of air leaks or other such inefficiencies with radiant systems, as forced air is not used at all.
Choosing the Right Radiant Heater for Your Needs
Radiant heating can be utilized in a few different ways, including electrical panels installed behind walls and hydronic floor heating systems. Hydronic systems are the most popular, using water heated by a boiler in order to heat tubing installed beneath the floor. This hot water warms the floor, and that heat then rises throughout the house. Electric radiant floors are also available, though the cost of electricity is generally on the high end, especially when compared with other available fueling options.
We Install and Service Radiant Heating Systems
The key to getting a truly outstanding performance from your radiant heating system is the same as with any other system; you must schedule a professional installation, routine maintenance, and prompt repair services as needed. No radiant heater will live up to its full potential if you do not mind these suggestions. An improperly sized boiler, for instance, will not function as effectively or efficiently as it ought to. If radiant tubing or panels are not installed strategically throughout the house, you may find that your system is not heating your home as evenly as you’d like.
Without routine maintenance, you are at much higher risk of an inefficient performance and an increased likelihood of operational problems. And, should you fail to schedule professional repairs in a timely manner, the damage to your system will only be more extensive. Trust us when we tell you that Vogt Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing is the company to call if you want to get the most from your radiant heating system.
