Forced-air systems like furnaces and heat pumps circulate heated air through ductwork to warm your home’s interior. Another alternative gaining in popularity is radiant heating, which uses heated water traveling through pipes embedded in your floors, walls, and/or ceilings to radiate heat outward and warm your home. Our highly qualified heating experts at Cooper Mechanical in Ottsville, Pennsylvania, offer professional installation and maintenance of radiant heating systems throughout Bucks County and the surrounding area. With more than 40 years of experience in the industry, our goal is to install a radiant heating system that complements your lifestyle, fulfills your heating needs, and maximizes your indoor comfort.
Benefits Of Radiant Heating
In ducted forced air heating systems, the hot air rises, so areas closest to the ceiling stay warmer, while areas near the floor are often cooler. Radiant heat systems start at the floor and gravitate up, so the bottom half of the room remains enveloped in warmth. Your home benefits from uniform warmth without the drafts or dead spots you often experience with conventional heating units. With a more comfortable, warmer interior, you may find yourself lowering the temperature on your thermostat, which saves money on your energy bill.
You also enjoy increased health benefits because dust, pollen, and other particles aren’t being blown around or circulated through air vents. This is especially beneficial to anyone who suffers from allergies or asthma. Other benefits of radiant heating systems include:
- A completely quiet heating system without any whooshing, pinging, or mechanical noises
- Increased aesthetics without any unsightly radiators or baseboards
- Flexibility in design and installation options
- Few to no maintenance requirements
- Reduced stuffiness and static electricity
- Compatibility with all floor coverings
- Increased space and design freedom
Radiant heating systems are especially good for new home construction, but existing homes can also be retrofitted to enjoy effective, energy-efficient warmth.
