Radiant heating systems function in a very different manner than traditional forced air heating systems. Radiant heating systems pass on heat through radiation rather than heating air that circulates through vents.
People and objects in the heated area feel the warming effect much sooner than with a conventional heating system that utilizes a fan to circulate hot air. Radiant heat eliminates the inefficient heat loss created by rising heat, as warmth is not distributed through the air. These systems are allergy-friendly, while forced air pushes allergens throughout the house.
One of the reasons people like radiant heating so much, is because heat can be adjusted for individual rooms to the temperature that you want with a programmable thermostat. Not only does this allow you to have the ability to customize your comfort room-by-room, but it also converts into significant energy savings and costs.
You can get a good idea of the quality of a radiant floor install by how equally spaced out each pex tube is laid out. When radiant floor heating is correctly installed there will not be any cold spots or hot spots in the room – the heat will be consistent. However, if done incorrectly you end up with cold spots in the room, warped flooring where too much heat is being released, and various other issues.
Popular residential radiant home heating system include: in-floor heating, wall heaters and ceiling heaters for garages and workshops.
Often used in garages and workshops, radiant tube heaters are installed on the ceiling and provide heat to objects directly below.

Radiant heaters can utilize energy from several different sources to produce heat. Today's radiant heater systems are basically divided into three categories: electric radiant systems, hydronic radiant systems, and air-based radiant systems.
Overall, hydronic radiant heat systems continue to be the most popular because of their cost-effectiveness and efficiency, especially in colder climates.
