The advantages of radiant floor heating

Radiant Floor Heating

At Harco Plumbing & Mechanical in Guelph, we strive to provide our clients with top-of-the-line heating and plumbing services. We are particularly proud of our work with radiant floor heating.

But you may ask yourself, “is radiant floor heating right for me and my family?” The answer is yes.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, there are many benefits to outfitting your home with a radiant floor heating system.

Firstly, radiant floor heating, which delivers heat either to the floor or to the panels in the ceiling or walls of your home, is more effective than both baseboard and forced-air heating because it removes duct heating losses.

As well, people with allergy concerns more often than not favour radiant floor heating because it doesn’t disburse allergens like forced air systems do.

Finally, hydronic (liquid-based) radiant floor heating systems are ideal for homes with expensive electricity rates of off the power grid since they require very little electricity to operate (hydronic heating systems can use a wide range of power sources to heat the liquid, such as solar water heaters or wood-fired, gas-fired, or oil-fired boilers).

At Harco, our professional technicians can help you choose a radiant floor heating system that is right for you and your family.

Be sure to also inquire about our other heating and plumbing services, including plumbing repairs, high pressure drain flushing, boiler installations, and catch basin cleaning.
