3 Reasons to Opt for In-Floor Heating, Ellsworth, Wisconsin

In many parts of the country, homeowners keep furnaces and space heaters running non-stop to eliminate uncomfortable drafts during winter. Instead of solely relying on warm air to keep interiors comfortable, many people are also installing in-floor heating systems. Electric resistance cables or tubes filled with hot water are placed under or over the subfloor to provide radiant heat. If you’re considering upgrading to an in-floor heating system, below are a few ways you’ll benefit from the investment.

3 Advantages of In-Floor Heating in Your Home

1. Improve Indoor Air Quality

With traditional home heating, warm air is pumped through ducts and vents into living spaces. The force of the air could cause dust, pet dander, pollen, and additional irritants to enter the air. If equipment isn’t routinely cleaned and disinfected, mold spores could grow on surfaces and enter the air supply, too. Breathing in allergens can cause sneezing fits and respiratory distress. In-floor heating systems don’t rely on air to circulate heat, which means fewer impurities will become airborne and make your family sick. 

2. Increase Comfort

The warm air could settle closer to registers, leaving a room’s perimeter toasty and the rest of the space uncomfortably cold. As the heating elements in floors span the entire surface, every inch of the room will remain warm. This ensures everyone will be comfortable no matter where they are in the space. As the system doesn’t produce noise, your home will be quieter, too. 

3. Save Money

Combining radiant floor heating with traditional methods could help save money. As the floor provides additional heat, you won’t have to rely on the furnace as much. This alleviates strain on mechanical components. You won’t experience as many equipment breakdowns that require expensive repairs.
