Why Should I Choose Radiant Heating?

We understand that homeowners in this area tend to be more concerned with their air conditioning systems than they are with their heaters. It only makes sense. We live in a hot, arid climate, and we run our air conditioners far more throughout the year than we do our heating systems.

When you think about it, though, isn’t that all the more reason to invest in a good, reliable, and efficient heating system? If you aren’t going to use your heater constantly, isn’t it all the more annoying to pay more for less when you do need your heater? Well, with a radiant heating system in Phoenix, AZ, you won’t have to worry about that. 

Why Choose Radiant Heating?

There are a lot of heaters out there vying for your attention. Some have benefits that others cannot offer, though, or excel at them in different ways. Radiant heating is one of those systems.

  • Efficiency is a major selling point of radiant heating. Radiant heat does not rely on the distribution of hot air throughout a home. Instead, electric panels or hydronic piping apply heat directly to the floors or, sometimes, the walls of a home. That heat then radiates out into the living space. There is no risk of air loss via duct leaks in such systems.
  • Longevity is another point to consider with the radiant heater. There are many fewer moving parts in any radiant heating system than there are in a gas or electric radiant system. Because of this, there is less likelihood that your system will break down. Mechanical parts can serve many purposes, but the more of them there are, the greater the risk of mechanical issues.
  • Comfort. Many homeowners stick with radiant heating systems just because they keep their homes more comfortable. With a radiant heating system, you really don’t run into the cold spots that you do with forced air. You also don’t have to worry about about issues with pollutants being thrown throughout your home, because you aren’t dealing with forced air at all.
