More and more homes these days are being designed and built with the environment in mind. From LEED-certified commercial structures to eco-friendly housing products, the green industry is booming, providing savings for homeowners who decide to go this route. Empire HVAC recommends checking out radiant floor heating for your home for the many benefits it can provide.
Get Comfortable with Radiant-Heated Floors
Whereas carpet is insulated and warm to the touch, hardwood, linoleum and stone are not so forgiving, especially in the winter. Comfort is far from the only advantage that radiant heating provides, although most people would agree this alone is enough to make the investment!
In addition to keeping your feet warm, radiant floor heating maintains constant ambient room temperature. Unlike radiators and Atlanta HVAC systems, there is no noise involved with this technology. Your home will be silently heated 24/7 to ideal room temperature without the risk of spreading mold, mildew, bacteria and other airborne contaminants.
Radiant floor heating warms the objects, including people, in the house directly rather than the air. This helps retain healthy moisture levels and prevents your air passages from being constricted by dry air. Regulated indoor humidity levels are also important for reducing fire hazards.
Radiant floor heating systems are just as easily installed in new construction project as they are in retrofit applications, and they can be conveniently placed beneath all types of flooring, including hardwood, stone, tile and carpet. You have the option to install the product in each room individually or as a whole-home system.
The Atlanta HVAC professionals at Empire HVAC have helped many homeowners upgrade or supplement their home’s heating systems with in-floor heating technology, and we can directly attest to its many benefits. Enjoy reduced heating bills and enhanced comfort all year long with radiant floor heating.
