If you are looking for an affordable and energy efficient solution to keep your home warm this winter, radiant heating is a great choice for many different options. You may want to install radiators if you are retrofitting your home with new heating systems or consider in-floor heating for new homes, renovations and remodeling projects. Here are some of the best radiant heating solutions that you may want to choose for your home:
1. Choosing the Right Type of Boilers for Your Heating Needs
When you are ready to have radiant heating installed in your home, you have a choice between many different types of boilers. If you want to have a more efficient boiler, consider installing solar and geothermal systems to help reduce energy consumption. In areas where biomass fuels are widely available, you may want to consider pellet or other biomass boilers for your homes heating needs. For smaller heating needs, pellet boilers and furnaces are a great choice and cost a lot less to operate than conventional gas and electric systems.
2. Retrofitting Your Home with Radiators to Install Efficient Heating
If you are retrofitting your home with new heating systems, then radiators are a great option. Unlike in-floor heating, which requires extensive remodeling, radiators can easily be installed without major remodeling projects. There are also choices between conventional radiators and baseboard radiant heating systems. If you are not planning on doing major remodeling projects in your home, then conventional radiators are a great option to improve your home with efficient radiant heating.
3. Major Renovations and In-Floor Heating Systems That Make a Difference on Energy Bills
There are also times when you may be doing renovations or remodeling projects and considering options for upgrading the heating system in your home. In-floor heating is ideal if you want to have the most modern and energy efficient heating solution for your home. With floor heating systems, you have a choice between electric and hydronic systems. An electric system is a great solution to add heating to a specific area, such as a bathroom remodeling project. The hydronic heating system is more ideal for adding heating to your entire home.
