Radiant heating systems provide an efficient option for home heating

Radiant heating systems are so named because they transfer warmth by radiation, from one object to another. Unlike forced-air heating systems that warm a room quickly by filling it with heated air, radiant heating systems typically raise room-temperature more gradually. There are several different types of radiant heating for houses, but they all work on the same principle and offer the same advantages.

Radiant heating systems are often preferred when family members are prone to allergies and respiratory ailments. Unlike forced-air heating systems that can circulate dust and other airborne irritants, radiant heat doesn't require air to be blown around.

What Does "Efficiency Rating" Mean?

A furnace boiler or water heater burns fuel to generate heat and needs to put that heat into an air stream in your ducts, or into water in your pipes. The efficiency rating is what percentage of that heat gets into your air or water. What happens to the rest of the heat? It goes up the chimney and is lost into the sky. Therefore, a 15-year-old furnace that is 65% efficient is putting 35% of the heat you paid for up the chimney. A 96% efficient furnace only "wastes" 4%! A big difference! And since the cost of the fuel you put through a furnace, boiler or water heater during its lifetime is much greater than the cost of the unit itself, it's worth it to install the very highest efficiency equipment available! Let Dr. Energy Saver accomplish this in your home!

Types of radiant heating systems

  1. Hot water baseboard heating: Also known as hydronic baseboard heating, this is the most common type of radiant heating used in houses. Hot water supplied by a boiler is pumped into pipes in baseboard radiators, forcing cooled baseboard water back to the boiler for reheating. Closely spaced fins on the pipes promote heat radiation and also heat transfer by convection.
  2. Old-fashioned radiators: These bulky, upright radiators can still be found in some older houses. They were typically supplied with steam rather than with hot water. Because it takes more energy for a boiler to produce steam, these systems are not efficient. That's why they're usually replaced with modern hydronic baseboard radiators or compact, wall-mounted radiators.
  3. Radiant floor heating: All radiant heating systems depend on thermal mass as a means of storing and radiating heat. In a hydronic radiant heating system, water provides the mass. With radiant floor heating, the flooring material provides the thermal mass. With hydronic radiant floor heating, warm water circulates beneath the finished floor in long runs of plastic pipe. With electric radiant floor heating, electric heating cable is installed beneath the finished flooring. Electric radiant floor heating isn't practical as a whole-house heating system. Instead, it's most commonly used in bathrooms, beneath a tile floor.
