3 Reasons Why You'll Love Radiant Floor Heating

Construction & Contractors Blog

If you are looking for the right heating option for your home, your first instinct might be to install a furnace. Although many people use furnaces to keep their homes warm during the winter, there is one option that you might not have considered yet -- radiant floor heating. These are a few reasons why this might be a good choice for your home. 

1. It's Quiet

One thing that you might love about radiant floor heating is the fact that it is quiet. With many heating systems, you have to worry about the radiator making loud clanking and banging noises or the vents and ducts sounding like an airplane when they turn on. This is not the case with radiant floor heating, however. You'll feel as if you don't even have a heating system in your home because it'll be so quiet. This is a great option if you are easily bothered by noises.

2. It's Clean

Most heating systems push warm air through the duct work and vents of the home. This can cause household dirt and dust to fly everywhere, which can be a nightmare if you have allergies and can leave you dusting and cleaning all the time. Radiant floor heating doesn't make a mess, so you can enjoy a cleaner home. Plus, it's a better option for those who have a lot of allergy symptoms.

3. It's Energy Efficient

You can enjoy more warmth for your money with a radiant floor heating system. Basically, the heat will rise from the floor -- while keeping your toes nice and warm -- and will help keep your home nice and cozy. This can be a better option than a furnace that circulates air rather unevenly throughout your home and can cause hot and cold spots. Plus, you are sure to notice that your heating bills will be reduced because these systems are energy-efficient, and you'll find that you do not need to run your heater as much as you would if you had a furnace.

As you can see, radiant floor heating is a great option if you are looking for the best way to heat your home. With one of these systems, either hot water or electricity will be used to pump warmth underneath your floor. Regardless of the type of flooring that you have in your home, this might be an option for you and your family.

A Study Of Wood Flooring Materials, Tools, and Techniques

Hello, I am Deborah Stillen. My passion for hardwood flooring began at a hotel on my first vacation as an adult. The gorgeous hotel flooring was made of a mix of mahogany, walnut, and teak materials that looked exotic to my eyes. Before that, I had only lived in places with wall-to-wall carpet. Upon coming home, I began to devise a way to cover my floors in wood materials. I became an expert on all of the wood flooring options available on the market today. I also studied different installation techniques and the tools used to create amazing patterns with the wood. My house now features a fine mix of bamboo and recycled wood flooring to create a layout I adore. I hope you can use the information on this site to bring wood floors to your home. Please visit often and learn all you can about wood flooring.
