Making the Switch to a Boiler & Radiant Heating
Whether you’re building a new house or renovating an existing space in Saskatoon , you may need to consider your options when it comes to heating systems. While most people are familiar with forced air heating systems, not everyone knows how it is that radiant heating systems work or why they might be preferable. Here, I hope to shed a little light on how it is that radiant heating works and why it’s a great option for homeowners.
One of the biggest pros to radiant systems is that most people find the heat they produce is very comfortable and consistent.
- The floor and objects in the home are heated, keeping the heat closest to you
- Because the system doesn’t cycle on and off constantly, the temperature feels more consistent
- The air doesn’t become dry from the radiant heating
- Typically, less heat is lost
- Allergens and dust aren’t stirred up by blowing air
Hot Water to Heat Your Home
While there are various types of radiant heating systems, we at JOB Heating & Air Conditioning prefer that which is powered by a boiler. The boiler heats water which is then circulated through the tubing under the floor. Choosing to go the boiler installation route not only produces a very comfortable heat but can also be very economical.
Another great feature for boiler powered radiant heating systems is that you can typically keep your home feeling quite comfortable at lower temperatures, reducing the amount of energy that’s required.
Suitable for New Home Construction & Renovations
As Saskatoon boiler installers, we’re often asked whether or not radiant heating systems can be installed in an existing home. Believe it or not, any type of finished flooring, from wood and carpeting to vinyl, can be installed over top of the tubing.
