Can you imagine anything cozier in the morning than getting out of bed as your feet meet a luxurious warm floor that screams “no socks required?” On a cold and dreary day there is nothing worse on your bare feet than an ice cold floor. Unless cold weather has you dancing on that icey floor, you might try a radiant in-floor heating system.
Radiant in-floor heating systems, such as Nuheat or Warmly Yours provide soothing warmth to many types of surfaces like tile, stone, concrete, laminate, carpet, hardwood, or engineered wood. They are easy to install, affordable, and virtually maintenance free, making them a popular choice in many areas of the home, like kitchens and bathrooms.
You may be asking, do the floors heat the whole room or just the floor? The answer is…the whole room! In lieu of heating and reintroducing warm air into a room, the heat emanates from the entire floor surface, creating even, consistent heat most concentrated under the 6 foot high mark. This means consistent comfort despite a cooler ambient air temperature. And by maintaining cooler ambient temperature – while still maintaining comfort – energy cost is reduced and heating becomes more efficient.
Also, a benefit of radiant heating for allergy sufferers: The absence of outside air moved in and around a home. Electric in-floor heating systems generate an even heat throughout your home and will not disturb dust –reducing the chance of possible allergic reactions. What’s more, heated floors reduce noise levels and the amount of dry air in your home. No more electric shocks when turning lights on/off. There are also no moving parts so it is 100% maintenance free and will last the life of the floors. Because the heating source is safely encased, there is no concern of furniture, drapes or children coming in contact with it.
