Have you considered installing a radiant floor heating system? If so, it is important to know that the installation process is much more complicated than what is used for the hydronic or warm-air systems. Some additional factors must be considered, such as layout, wiring, controls, zoning, water temperature, circulator sizing, and flow rate.

Radiant Floor Heating Advantages
Radiant floor heating is a relatively new advancement in flooring technology. The ability to heat your home without a bulky heating system is quite advantageous to the family. Besides the space, other benefits include more durability and reliability. This system can outlast your home’s furnace; a properly maintained system can last for 35 years or more. On top of that, the system has been known to save homeowners money on their monthly energy and heating bills.
Radiant floor heating warms the entire room from the bottom to the top, ensuring more people in the house are comfortable. This, in turn, means you don’t have to turn up the thermostat quite as high. A radiant floor heating system is an investment that will pay for itself over time. Give us a call today for a consultation.
Why is radiant heat superior to other heating methods?
Because hot air rises, radiant heating has the profound ability to heat an entire room from the ground up. Every object in the room absorbs the heat from the floor, allowing your family to remain as comfortable as possible. Because you are heating everything and not just the air being circulated, your home will maintain a level of warmth that does not dissipate quite as quickly. You won’t experience cold spots, either, which is a major concern for furnace-based heating systems.
Also, the system is completely silent, allowing for very little discomfort or annoyance. There is only one moving part in the heating system, and it requires very minimal maintenance to operate efficiently. You should perform periodic check-ups to ensure your radiant heating system is operating as intended.
Will radiant heat damage my hardwood floors?
If installed properly and set up correctly, a radiant heating system will not damage the hardwood floors in your home. The recommended surface temperature for any floor is about 85 degrees Fahrenheit, and the technician who installs your hardwood flooring and a radiant heating system will determine the right control strategy.
Natural hardwood is known to warm quickly and remain cozy for those walking around barefoot. With today’s radiant heating system technology, both solid hardwood and engineered hardwood floors work just fine without any risk of damage. You can also add inlays over the radiant heating system if you would prefer. Overall, though, the heating system is safe and will not damage your floors, which we know are quite the investment in the first place. For any questions about your specific heating system and hardwood floors, be sure to contact Baylor Inc. today.
