Trend Spotlight: Radiant Floor Heating Makes Green Living Luxurious


Going green doesn’t have to mean giving up all kinds of comfort in order to live a simple life. You can have an environmentally-friendly, well heated home thanks to the use of radiant heating, which has been around for 6,000 years. You’ll also enjoy the other benefits radiant floor heating has to offer.

Radiant heating involves the use of infrared technology to heat the floor of a home, rather than using baseboard heating units or forced-air systems. It’s a safe and efficient way to heat homes. It also has these advantages:

  • It won’t aggravate your allergies or lead to asthma attacks because it doesn’t blow allergens into the air, like forced-air systems do.
  • You can save on your electric bill by installing a hydronic radiant floor system, which draws energy from liquid in solar water heaters or boilers.
  • It’s more eco-friendly and cost-effective than using a furnace that runs on natural gas.

These are just a few of the benefits radiant floor heating offers.
