Our new condo has radiant heat in the floors. There are several benefits to this type of heating, besides saving cash on our heating bill. The heat in our lake house is clean, quiet plus free of drafts. In a forced-air gas furnace, the heat rises to the ceiling, which can cause hot or cold spots. With such radiant heating, the heat plus warmth are distributed throughout our rooms, however since the heat is concentrated on the floor level, we’re able to walk around comfortably in our bare feet, even on the coldest days, and our radiant in-floor heating is a healthy alternative to the usual forced-air heat. This is terrific for our children who both have flu symptoms plus asthma, because the heated air is not being blown through dusty, dirty ducts that tend to circulate airborne pollutants in homes.
Initially, every one of us were planning on installing carpet over the concrete floors, but, when our corporation showed us the charming decorative concrete floors that were available to us, every one 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 program is totally concealed under the concrete. There are no air vents cluttering the walls or baseboards plus no wall radiators taking up space in the rooms… Radiant floor heating hiding under our charming concrete floors was an excellent choice for our family.
