Radiant Heat

Radiant heat, or radiant floor heating, works by circulating heat underneath the floorboards that then radiates to heat the entire room. It is more quiet and efficient than air heating and often preferable because it eliminates allergens and annoying forced-air heat. The most popular type of radiant heat, hydronic heating, works with a boiler and pipes to circulate hot water below the floorboards, and still uses a thermostat to control the temperature just like air heating.

Types of Radiant Heating

There are three types of radiant heating systems: Hydronic radiant floors use hot water and are the most efficient with the biggest savings. Radiant air floors use heated air and are less efficient. And, electric radiant floors, offer the least amount of efficiency of the three.

Additionally, there are two types of installation processes: wet installation and dry installation. Your KES technician will inspect your home construction thoroughly to determine the best installation method for your underfloor heating.

If radiant floors aren’t the best option, radiant heat panels are available. These panels are typically electric, though you can find hydronic panels if you are willing to risk potential water damage to your walls or ceiling. Radiant panels work well for rooms that are infrequently used, as they heat up more quickly and aren’t as costly when used sparingly.
