 Radiant floors are one of the oldest forms of heating a structure — dating all the way back to Roman times. 
 Radiant floor heat provides numerous benefits, including increased comfort, even temperatures, cleaner air, 
 no cold drafts, no unsightly ductwork and no floor vents, all while being quieter and more energy-efficient 
 compared to forced-air heat.

 In a radiant floor heating system, warm water flows through tubes located underneath the floors. That 
 warmth radiates up from the floors and warms everything it comes in contact with — including people.

 Radiant is compatible under any type of floor covering — carpet, wood, slate, tile, linoleum, and even 
 concrete — making design possibilities endless.

 The water in a radiant system has a capacity to transport energy 3,500 times greater than air, so it can
 heat (and even cool) using less energy than a forced-air system. This amounts to greater comfort at a lower 
 thermostat setting, which provides lower energy bills. In fact, more people are comfortable with radiant floor 
 heating at a lower thermostat setting than with forced-air heating at a higher thermostat setting.

 Radiant heating systems work in zones, allowing different areas of a home to heat at different temperatures. 
 This allows typically chilly rooms, such as bathrooms, basements and entryways, to receive more heat when 
 needed. At the same time, rooms with less traffic, such as a den or formal dining room, can be set to a lower
 thermostat setting, making the system even more energy-efficient.

Radiant Floor Heating

 Running hot water beneath the floor -- or hydronics -- is becoming more popular in residential homes thanks to a 
 flexible plastic tubing called "PEX" -- a polyurethane, durable tubing that has a lifespan of more than 100 years. 
 It serpentines underneath the floor and uses the whole floor as a heat-distribution system. 

 Comfort and efficiency are two reasons why new homeowners like radiant floor systems. 

 Comfort is the main advantage with its warm-feet, cool-head environment. And because the whole floor is used, 
 it's an extremely efficient system. The aesthetic quality is another reason some homeowners love this system. 
 The heating system remains hidden beneath the floor; there are no vents or radiators in sight. This can be a huge 
 advantage when it comes to interior design.
