Radiant in floor heating has many distinct advantages over the more customary forms of heating we have become familiar with. While radiant instalation fell out of favor due to problems with metal fatigue in the pipes used at the time, Pex tubing have now done much to revive the affordability and reliability of radiant in floor heating.
Radiant in-floor heating improves comfort by increasing a room's average surface temperature. One of the disadvantages of just warming the air in a room through convection is that the surfaces tend to stay cool. Our bodies lose heat to these surfaces as there is a natural pull for heat to travel from a warmer place to a colder place. Radiant in floor heating instead warms the surfaces and the body stays comfortable due to the lack of cooler surfaces.
Many radiant panel heating systems employed in under floor radiant heat are out of sight. Whether constructed with hydronic tubing as in hydronic radiant floor heat systems or electric cable, heated floors, walls, and ceilings conceal their function as heat emitters. There are usually less constraints imposed on furniture placement. The architectural aesthetics of rooms can be preserved without compromising thermal comfort.
