Hydronic radiant in-floor heating offers many benefits
Modern in-floor heating is a relatively recent innovation, though the technology to heat certain tile floors has been around for hundreds of years, such as the ancient Roman hypocaust system. Today’s version of in-floor heating is much simpler and more efficient.
The heat is hydronic radiant heating, which is created by moving heated water through a series of pipes under the floor. Hot air rises, so when the tile is warmed, it then moves into the air to increase the temperature in that specific room.
Some people find this convenient considering that the thermostat is generally located elsewhere in the home, away from the bathrooms. If you are interested in heated tile floors, you can contact us to learn more and to see if this is something that you could fit within your home improvement budget.
