What Are Radiant Floors & Why Are They Beneficial?, West Harrison, Indiana

Everyone wants to save money on their energy bills, but most homeowners do not know where to start. The technicians at Western Hills Heating & Air Conditioning in West Harrison, IN, say that installing radiant floors will reduce most consumers’ energy bills while also making their homes more comfortable. To help you understand what this revolutionary amenity is and how it will benefit you, they provide the following guide. 

Radiant Floors Explained

radiant floorsThis innovative heating system is comprised of electric wires or hot-water tubes and is installed underneath a home’s floor. Unlike traditional, forced-air heating systems, which use ducts to push warm air throughout the house, radiant floors rely on thermal radiation to heat the entire room. 

Benefits of Radiant Floors

Radiant floors provide consumers with a few wonderful benefits. First, these systems are usually more energy-efficient than their traditional forced-air furnace counterparts, which typically results in lower monthly utility bills.

Radiant floors also provide uniform heating distribution because the warming element is spread across the entire room, rather than being confined to a few small vents. Additionally, they are far quieter than forced-air units, which require the use of noisy fans.

Finally, radiant floors increase indoor air quality, as they do not rely on air circulation as a heating mechanism. This is especially beneficial for people who struggle with allergies, have pets, or live in dust-prone homes.
