Radiant heating isn’t new, but its popularity is on the rise and becoming a major selling feature in new and old homes, putting conventional forced-air systems on a fast track of being a thing of the past.
“Electric cable systems work as well or better than a hydronic system when remodeling projects come into play, such as when you are replacing the tile in an existing bathroom on a concrete slab, where there is no room for the mechanical system required for a hydronic system or the floor height to install a typical hydronic radiant floor system,” said Michael Willburn. “Other examples might be where the project requires more of a cooling load than heating and the customer only wants warm floors in specific areas of their house.”
