Floor Heating Installation in Madison WI
Everybody knows that heat rises, that is why it is always a good idea to distribute it as low to the ground as possible. You cannot get any lower than your floor. Radiant heat systems use a boiler to run warm water through tubes in your floor which rises up and heats the entire room. Radiant heat can be used throughout an entire house but is more commonly used in basements and bathrooms.
Note: Radiant floor heat must tie into a boiler. To see examples of our boiler equipment visit Harker Boiler Products

What Makes Radiant Heating Ideal for Heating Your Home?
Science shows that heat emission from the human body occurs mainly via three mechanisms: radiation, evaporation and convection. Humans feel most comfortable when they can regulate at least 50% of their heat emission via radiation, and when their feet are warmer than their heads.
Radiant heating systems provide heat on the basis of low heating surface temperatures over a large area and an even air temperature distribution with mild, comfortable radiated energy. In contrast to conventional forced-air systems, a radiative equilibrium is generated between people and the surfaces throughout the room, more closely achieving the optimum thermal comfort level for occupants.
