Benefits of Radiant Heating
When you use an old fashioned air system to heat your home, you
are using air to transfer the heat to your body. The heat is
diluted, and a lot of area is being heated that you don't need
heated (from your head to the ceiling). With radiant heating, the
floor transfers heat directly to your body keeping you warmer with
less energy. Plus, by heating the floor you're heating only the
most efficient areas, saving you money.
Thornton Plumbing and Heating provides radiant heating that puts
the heat where it warms you, not the air. Radiant heat eliminates
cold floors in kitchens and bathrooms where the air around you is
warm but cold tile chills your feet.
Radiant heating will adjust to the temperature outside. It
doesn't matter how cold it is outside, you will still feel warm and
cozy inside. Your floors will always remain a mild temperature, so
you can get rid of the slippers in winter while still feeling
comfortable in shoes during the summer. This is what makes radiant
heat perfect for warehouses, factories, offices or homes.
