Radiant Heating: Warmth From the Ground Up

Radiant Heating: Warmth From the Ground Up

In climates with long, cold winters, radiant heating is generally regarded as the most comfortable, although forced-air heating systems still dominate, even in Michigan. Radiant heat mimics the sun. It heats objects instead of the air, and by doing so, creates even, long-lasting heat.

When Should You Install Radiant Heating?

If you’re investigating radiant heating, you may have heard that it’s only possible to have it installed in warmer weather. That was the case when the heating mechanism had to be set into a freshly-poured concrete slab that had to cure.

With temperatures in the area cooling down, there’s no better time to start thinking about how to heat your Grand Traverse County home this winter. If you’re looking for something different from the typical forced-air furnace, consider having radiant flooring installed.

How a Radiant Heating System Can Keep Your Michigan Home Toasty This Winter

Most people think of forced-air systems when it comes to residential heating, but radiant heating has been used with great success for thousands of years. It’s a reliable and effective way to keep your home feeling nice and toasty, and in many cases, is more energy efficient. Learn about this kind of system, and the many advantages of using radiant heating to make your Northern Michigan home comfortable all winter long. 

Radiant Heating: Optimal Comfort and Energy Efficiency

Many homes in Grand Traverse County have conventional heating systems that work by heating air and blowing this warmed air into the living spaces. Other homes in our area have systems using heated water piped along baseboards which will gradually warm the circulating air. Both of these systems rely on the movement of heated air. Another option, radiant heating, works on a different process entirely.
