Dayton, OH Radiant Systems by Home Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.

Much of the time, we think of heaters as producing hot air, so it is rather the ambient temperature of the air that warms our bodies and our homes during the winter. That’s certainly true with forced heating systems such as furnaces, heat pumps and ductless mini splits. But there is another type of heating system that works a bit differently. Radiant heat describes the type of warming that occurs when objects and surfaces are heated rather than the air itself. Radiant systems are those which use hot water (or steam, in some cases) to radiate thermal energy throughout the home.

What is Radiant Heating?

A radiant system does not heat your indoor air. It does not pull your indoor air through a heat exchanger and then return that heated air to your home, and it therefore requires no ductwork installation. Radiant heat works by heating surfaces directly, and that means you won’t have to worry about your hot air rising to the top of the room while your feet and extremities go cold, nor do you have to worry about the dry air effect that most forced heating systems inevitably lead to.

The benefits of radiant heating are clear. Because you’re heating objects in the home directly, you don’t have to worry about efficiency problems related to leaky or poorly insulated ductwork. Moreover, the attendant indoor air quality problems of ductwork can lead to stale and stuffy air, both issues that rarely arise as a result of your radiant system.

What You Ought to Know When Having a Radiant Heater Installed

To call it a "radiant heater" is likely to cause confusion. Rather than a single, enclosed unit, a radiant heating system is a network of components and materials, including a centralized boiler, various piping within the floors and/or along the baseboard of rooms, radiators within the living space, as well as the thermostat and manifold that distributes your hot water throughout the home.

It’s a complicated system, and therefore requires professional installation. Fortunately, we have been doing this for years and years, and we can guide you every step of the way so that you achieve a highly effective and efficient radiant system for your home. We work with homes and budgets of all sizes, and you can count on our team to deliver great service at excellent value.
