For many homeowners heating their houses with a forced air distribution system is all that they know. Forced air heating has many benefits, of course, such as the swiftness with which it allows for the heating of one’s home. However, it also has a number of drawbacks, like any other heat system. Many of these drawbacks, as you’ll see below, can be avoided with the use of a radiant heating system.
Radiant systems are quite common, which is unsurprising given just how long radiant heating has been around. While the installation of a radiant heating system may be a bit more involved than that of a forced air heating system, especially in preexisting homes, many homeowners find that the benefits of such systems just cannot be surpassed. The decision is yours, of course, but if you are considering your heating options, consider very seriously the installation of a radiant system by HVAC-DMV Plumbing, Heating & Cooling.

Why Choose Radiant Heating?
Unlike furnaces or heat pumps, which heat air and then distribute that air throughout a home via a system of ductwork, radiant systems instead apply heat directly to the floors or walls of a home. They can do so in a few different ways, with some systems using hydronic tubing filled with hot water, and others using electric radiant panels. The end result is the same, though; heat radiates out from these surfaces, warming other objects, including human bodies, throughout the house. Radiant heating allows for the comfortable, gradual heating of a home in a very even, and very efficient, manner. Your air won’t be dried out, nor will you have to worry about issues with air leaks.
