Radiant energy systems operate by circulating warm water through a series of pipes that are often placed under concrete in a building's foundation. However, they can also be installed in the walls or use traditional radiators. Unlike systems that employ a furnace to force air through ducts (which often lead to the redistribution of dust and mold), radiant systems are self contained and clean.
What makes radiant heating so attractive to homeowners is its comprehensive heating abilities. Radiant heating provides warmth from the floor. This means the heat stays closer to the floor where you actually need it instead of rising directly to the ceiling like it would with a forced air system.
Radiant heating can also be installed with an almost limitless number of configurations. They make great additions to existing systems if you are remodeling or expanding your home.
While initial expenses to install a radiant heating system is more than what you can expect to spend on a forced air system, the difference is made up for in the amount you save on energy bills over time.
How much energy you save with a radiant heating system depends on several factors: the system layout, source of fuel, how well your property is insulated, and the climate. On average, residential consumers can expect to save up to 30% on their energy bill. Commercial settings can expect savings of up to 60%.
