Radiant Floor Warming Systems are a fantastic way to heat a room efficiently and comfortably. They warm the space by generating an even heat throughout your home. That means no heat loss through the ceiling, less fuel usage, reduced noise levels, and an overall body warmth. Another benefit is that they do not distribute allergens as forced air systems can do. To top it off, they're quiet and extremely energy efficient! Radiant heat is a comfortable healthy way to warm any space.This is a clean soundless system that brings warmth to any space. An example is some manufacturers provide zone heating using a programmable thermostat, which means heating room by room, use by use – heat only where you want, when you want it. Electric radiant heat allows homeowners to lower their central heating system while still being comfortable. It offers an energy saving alternative to keeping the forced air heating system running throughout the entire house and can help reduce a home’s overall energy consumption. And because their are no moving parts once it's installed safely encased in thinset/mortar, it is 100% maintenance free and will last the lifetime of your floors.
The applications can go beyond simply the bathroom or kitchen, and can serve as more than just a luxury. If rooms in your home comply with modern insulation requirements for your region, Nuheat can act as an effective and efficient heat source. This means less dependence on additional heat sources, as well as reduced energy costs associated with heating. However, for rooms with lower insulation levels (in older homes), additional heat sources may still be required, especially if upgrading insulation values proves difficult. Upgrading your insulation, however, regardless of your heat source will not only keep your house warmer but also lower heating bills.
