The radiant floor is a heating system that is rather unrecognized. Radiant heating is based on the emission of infrared waves (invisible) by a large massive surface. However, it can save a lot of money, because it is possible to heat a multitude of surfaces, including floors, walls and even ceilings, with much more efficiency than traditional heating. The secret is in the convection of air and electricity, or in some cases of liquids, also known as hydronic heating by radiation, or a network of pipes in which a fluid (normally water) circulates. Several private and corporate houses are opting for the radiant floor these days because the benefits are many: lower heating costs, system efficiency which translates into easier maintenance, reduced allergies, to name a few, each.
