Radiant heat is regarded as the most comfortable and healthiest heating solution. Floor drafts,
cold spots, and dry air, all problems associated with forced hot air heat, are eliminated.
What is radiant heat?
Hold you hand over a hot cup of coffee and feel the heat. The logical conclusion is that heat rises. Logical maybe, but incorrect! Hot air
rises but heat can travel in any direction. That is why you can feel the heat of the cup where you place your hand to the side of it. Radiant energy transfer
is caused by a warm surface giving up its heat to a cooler surface.
Whenever there is a temperature difference between two surfaces, both surfaces will attempt to equalize. Radiant energy travels through
space without hearing the space itself. It only turns into heat when it contacts a cooler surface. Our human core relies just as much on radiant heat
transfer as it does on air yet the majority of heating and conditioning professionals think only in terms of air to temperature. As a result, Americans
are missing out on a truly comfortable living environment in their homes or places of business. By controlling both the air temperature and the radiant
transfer, radiant panel systems deliver a comfort that is unsurpassed.
|| With radiant heat the room and every object in it becomes a radiator. The
temperature of the room and the objects matches your body temperature thus eliminating heat loss from your body. You feel more comfortable at a lower temperature.
