Looking for additional ways to heat your Mukwonago home and optimize your level of comfort? Radiant floor heating could be the perfect solution for you. Our Midwest Heating and Cooling professionals provide all the radiant floor heating services you need to feel cozier than ever inside your home here in Wisconsin.
Radiant floor heating is a simple but efficient and quiet way to keep your home warm. Heating components are installed underneath the floor, warming up every object in the room. And because no ductwork is needed, less dust and allergens are stirred up, improving your indoor air quality (IAQ).
With radiant floor heating, you can walk barefoot on the floor without your feet getting cold or shivering. But radiant floors do even more—they offer an effective way to heat an entire area of your home without missing any section or creating cold spots.
How Radiant Floor Heating Works
There are multiple types of radiant floor heating. Two of the most common are electric and hydronic. The choice of radiant floor heating dictates which components we install underneath your floors. For example, electric radiant floor heating uses electric heating coils, and hydronic systems create heat with the help of hot water traveling through tubes.
Electric Floor Heating
Although electric floor heating is usually not the primary source of heat in a home, it is a great way to keep comfortable, especially during colder seasons. If you have an addition to your home or want to keep your bathrooms comfortably warm, adding electric floor heating could be the perfect solution as it is a viable option for supplemental heat.
Hydronic Floor Heating
If you’re interested in having radiant floor heating throughout your entire home, then hydronic flooring is the way to go. Your boiler or water heater will provide the necessary hot water, which will travel through the tubing underneath the floors and create the floor heating you need to feel comfortable throughout your home.
There are several different ways to have hydronic floors installed, and our Midwest Heating & Cooling experts would be happy to go over the best options for your home. Just reach out to us!
Additional benefits of radiant floor heating include:
- Healthier indoor air quality (IAQ) since particles won’t be circulating in your air
- Energy efficiency
- Reduced heating expenses due to lower thermostat settings
- Compatible with most floor types (wood, laminate, tile, carpet, etc.)
Radiant Floor Heating vs. Forced-Air Heating
With forced-air heating, hot air circulates and rises toward your ceiling. When you turn on your furnace, it will heat the room to a target temperature and then shut down.
This repetitive cycle is uneven. It results in the temperature rising to your set temperature, only to drop to a lower temperature before turning back on to reach your set temperature again.
Radiant floor heating works a little differently—it produces even and constant heat right from your floor. When you want efficient and consistent heat, opt for radiant floors.
