What Is Electric Radiant Heat?
Many people think of ductwork or split systems when it comes to home heating. But in older homes, particularly those in temperate climates like Ohio, there are many homes equipped with radiant heat, which stores heat and transfers it directly to the air in a room rather than forcing it through ducts from a centralized source. Electric radiant heat operates on the same principal as older-style radiators, but involves the placement of electrical cables in or beneath a floor, providing a range of benefits over other heating methods, including:
Science Working for You Simple, Quiet Operation
Fewer moving parts means that your home will be both comfortable and peaceful. The simple fact that the warmth comes from heated cables means that you won’t hear fans, compressors or forced air anywhere in your home.
Floor installations are relatively less expensive and invasive than other types of installations. They involve minimal equipment and do not require you to tear down walls. Radiant heat is also free of drafts and leaks, which means your home will stay consistently warm and dry.
By placing the cables in your floor, you are taking advantage of heat’s natural ability to rise and warm an entire room from beneath. The cables are also insulated and can store heat for off-peak use, meaning you can save on electricity.
