Radiant Heating Systems
Radiant heating systems have taken the natural occurrences of radiant energy and applied that to heating and cooling technology to create an emerging form of climate control. Using the principals behind radiant heat, radiant energy is transferred from a heat source which emits heat to an object. The basic idea has actually been around since the Romans (and actually before) used a simplistic form of this to heat their flooring and dwellings in general. Radiant indoor heating systems come in the form of wall heating, radiant ceiling panels and under-floor heating systems.
Radiant Floor Systems
Perfect Climate is happy to provide services relating to radiant floor systems, including maintenance, repair and installation of new radiant floor setups. Radiant flooring systems provide a level of indoor climate control and thermal comfort. The not only keep the feet warm, but provide an overall central heating and cooling of the home. Radiant floor systems come in electrical or hydronic (water-based) varieties.
The benefits of using these types of systems are many:
Air Quality – Radiant floor systems maintain temperature, discouraging the growth of molds and bacteria via moisture control. Generally the flooring materials used with radiant systems is low in VOC emissions as well.
Longevity – Radiant systems are usually low-maintenance systems and thus require less investment in their upkeep and repair.
Safety – Radiant Floor Systems are under floor and completely out of the way. They take up no wall or floor space and therefore are not a physical hazard (running into or damaging).
Sustainability – Radiant flooring systems using geothermal and solar energy sources are green and environmentally friendly.
Thermal Comfort – the even temperature distribution paired with air quality and sustainability promote a high overall level of comfort within the body.
