Floor heating systems have been around for centuries when one considers that the Romans used radiant floor heating. Needless to say, heated flooring has come a long way since the days of the Romans. In today’s modern homes, tile floor heating systems offer warmth, comfort, and many other benefits.
The #1 benefit of heated flooring is uniform heating. Forced heat warms the room and distributes the heat, but the areas closest to the vent get warm the quickest. With floor heating, every square inch of the room is warmed equally.
Forced heating systems kick on and operate loudly. In small areas, the noise can be annoying. Floor heating is quiet and homeowners never know the system is on, but they feel it working.
Heated floors are up to 25 percent more energy efficient than traditional furnaces. The reason for their efficiency is that the heat doesn’t have anywhere to escape. Therefore, all the heat that the system produces is retained and used.
People who have allergies or respiratory issues find that they feel better when using floor heating. With forced air systems, dirt, dander, and other debris push through the ducts and vents, spewing out into the air. Households breathe easier with ductless systems such as a tile floor heating system.
Homeowners who want to learn more about floor heating systems should contact professionals who have experience with this type of heating. These professionals have the knowledge to answer questions and provide information about installation and more.
