Radiant Heating Features
As a result, many homeowners have turned to radiant floor-heating systems. These systems can be used in tandem with a forced-air system or as the sole heating source. They work by using water or electricity to produce heat that radiates upward through the floor. The heat is then transferred directly to the people and objects in the room.
Generally, hydronic floor-heating systems, which use water and plastic piping to heat the floors, are most popular for whole-house heating. This is mainly because the cost of water is typically lower than the cost of electricity. However, the operating cost depends on the area of the country in which you live, as the cost of electricity varies from state to state and county to county. Depending on where you live, electric floor-heating systems may be a great option for whole-house heating; however, they’re most popular as a supplementary heat source.
