Our current new home has radiant heat in the floors. There are several benefits to this type of heating, besides saving currency on our heating bill. The heat in our current home is clean, quiet plus free of drafts. In a forced-air oil furnace, the heat rises to the ceiling, which can cause hot or freezing spots. With such radiant heating, the heat plus warmth are distributed throughout our rooms, and since the heat is concentrated on the floor level, we are able to walk around comfortably in our bare feet, even on the coldest days, but our radiant in-floor heating is a healthy alternative to the correct forced-air heat. This is terrific for our children who both have pollen irritations plus asthma, because the heated air is not being blown through dusty, dirty ducts that tend to circulate airborne pollutants in homes.
Initially, all of us were planning on installing carpet over the concrete floors, but, when our business showed us the appealing decorative concrete floors that were available to us, all of us changed our minds. So, there are no dust mites plus dirt build-up or trapped pet hair in our home, just clean, fresh, allergen-free, enticing warmth for us all! Also, our radiant heat floors is that they’re invisible plus virtually silent because the plan is totally concealed under the concrete. There are no air vents cluttering the walls or baseboards plus no wall radiators taking up area in the rooms, but radiant floor heating hiding under our appealing concrete floors was an excellent option for our family.
