There are many benefits of using a radiant heat ceiling. The main attraction to this type of heating is that it heats a home or interior space the same way the sun heats the earth. This system does not require blowers or vents. The only equipment required is to have radiant elements installed in the ceiling, floors, or walls. Each place where elements are installed will have a separate control panel to mark the temperature higher or lower. This control is directing the elements, but they do not display the current temperature in a room the way a traditional thermostat does.
There are a few different types of radiant heat ceilings on the market for you to choose from:
Hydronic radiant heating: As the name suggests, this type of radiant system uses water to help with heating. The water is heated in a boiler. Then the water flows from pipes or tubes throughout the rooms to be heated. This type of system is especially popular under roads where the winters are harsh. They keep snow and ice from building up on the roadways.
Conventional heating system: In this type of system, radiant heat is used to heat all parts of the interior space so that hot spots or cool spots do not form. Because radiant heat does not have to move air masses to heat a space, contaminants and dust are not moving within your heat. Also, this allows flexibility in decorating since you do not have to plan around baseboard systems or floor vents.
Radiant ceiling heat: This system heats the room from the top to the bottom. It is one of the most efficient ways to heat your home and could possibly save you as much as twenty percent on your energy costs.
There are many benefits to choosing a radiant heat ceiling as the heating option for your home. Below are some of the benefits you can enjoy:
So you can enjoy the benefit of saving money with your radiant ceiling heat.
Since these systems heat your home like the sun heating the earth, there are no vents to clean. There are no leakages from chemicals and there are no pressure problems causing the system to breakdown.
Since there is no need for vents, blowers, or fans to circulate the heat with a radiant heat ceiling, these components will not need maintaining. This will save you time and money. This also eliminates the need for filters. Saving you both the additional cost of filters and the time changing them every month.
Radiant heat systems do not use air in the same way that a more traditional type of heating system does. The only air that is used is the air inside the interior space that is heated by the radiant heat. By heating in this way, drafts do not form and less dust and pollen circulate within the home.
Radiant heat systems provide a different thermostat for each room. That way you can save energy costs when you need to only heat certain areas of the home.
This type of heating system also makes a good choice for less insulated and open air areas such as gazebos, log homes, stables, and porches.
