What Is Radiant Heating?

Heating your home can be accomplished in a number of ways. Forced–air systems, like furnaces and heat pumps, circulate heated air through a series of ducts to warm the occupants. But radiant heating systems, like hot water boilers, use heated water or electric resistance coils to provide heating for your home. These types of systems typically have wires or pipes embedded in your home’s walls, ceilings, or floors where the heat radiates outward. Some people prefer radiant heat and find that it offers more comfort as opposed to forced–air systems.

Chicago Radiant Heating Installation

While radiant heating systems are great options for many homeowners, their installation process is fairly complex. Call the Chicago radiant heat installation experts at Shavitz. With radiant heating systems, tubes, pipes, or wires need to be inlaid under your floor, in the walls of your home, or in your ceiling. While this can definitely be retrofitted to your home, it is an intensive process. However, with over 100 years of experience, Shavitz can make sure that your new radiant heating system provides excellent heating in your home.

One of the most important steps in the process is finding an appropriately sized radiant heat system that matches your home. If the system is too small or too big it could negatively impact its performance and your comfort. We can help you pick out a system that is the perfect size for your home so that it works well and that it works for as long as possible.
