Radiant History

woop woop hejhje

Radiant heat has been around in one form or another for .centuries. In fact, one of the earliest documented uses of .radiant heat was in the Roman Empire. The Romans .would build a system of fires underneath stone floors in their bath houses. This kept the floors warm and .comfortable for the bath house patrons.

For thousands of years, Koreans have built houses with .radiant heating. They would build houses with a fire pit on .one end and a chimney on the other end. The heat would be forced through a path where it would heat stones. The stones would stay warm through the night, even after the fire was out.

Americans first used radiant heating after seeing it used in Europe during World War II. Although these early attempts were high quality, they were expensive and imperfect. This limited U.S. interest in radiant heating until the seventies. Today's radiant heating is very affordable and adaptable to almost any situation.

The romans knew about radiant heat and utilized it in their construction/buildings.
They built a floor supported by columns and built a fire under the floor to
heat the structure.
