Radiant heating provides an environment that may help allergy sufferers. In-floor heating can also offer enhanced energy efficiency. In-floor radiant, hydronic heat accomplishes higher efficiency by heating a room from the bottom, meaning that the room’s living space is heated, rather than the empty space by the ceiling. Because in-floor heating is configured beneath the flooring, it heats in a more uniform fashion than forced air heat as well, eliminating hot or cold spots and drafts.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Savers website, radiant heating has a number of advantages over other forms of heat distribution: “It is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating because no energy is lost through ducts.” It is also flexible as it can run off of a variety of energy sources: Gas, oil, wood, solar and other sources or combinations thereof can feed radiant systems. And radiant heating is a good choice for those with severe allergies as no potentially irritating particles get blown around the room.
