Can you imagine stepping out of your bed and onto a warm heated floor? Just think, with heated floors in your home, you’ll no longer have to wear slippers just to walk on those cold ceramic floors. Radiant heat flooring is the most efficient space heating system that’s prized for its numerous therapeutic benefits. Read on to learn about these benefits and why you should install heated floors in your home.

Before we dive into the benefits of heated floors, let me first explain how radiant floor heating works. Radiant floor heating systems are made up of heat-conducting mats with electrical wires that are installed under your floor. Using thermal heat transfer, heated floors warm up a room from the ground up and deliver an even distribution of heat to keep the people and objects in the room at a comfortable temperature. Heated flooring systems can be installed under all kinds of flooring including – ceramic tile, stone tile, wood, laminate, carpet and vinyl. Heated floors differ from traditional systems, like forced air and baseboard heating systems that are usually located in the corner of a room and require vents and ductwork to distribute heat.

 

Therapeutic Benefits

 

Optimal Comfort

As you can tell by how the system works, heated floors offer optimal thermal comfort. Fluctuations in temperature can be bothersome to many, especially to those with health issues. Heated floors let you maintain and enjoy a comfortable environment. Due to the even distribution of heat, heated floors also let you maintain that same level of comfort with your thermostat set to a lower temperature.

 

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Unless you suffer from allergies or asthma, your home’s indoor air quality may not be something you think about too often. What you might not know is forced air and baseboard heating systems can worsen indoor air quality. For instance, forced air systems involve vents that can blow dust and volatile particles around your home. Additionally, both forced air and baseboard systems involve very hot surfaces, which can burn these particles and circulate them around. Since heated floors provide heat from the floor up, without the use of vents and pipes, they don’t transfer dust or toxins into your air or dry it out.

 

Silent Operation

Another difference between heated floors and traditional systems is the former operate with no noise. Radiant floor heating produces no swooshing or creaking sounds from radiators, fans, air ducts or pumps. Heated floors work quietly and out of sight and don’t hinder your interior design scheme.

As you can see, there are many therapeutic benefits of heated floors.  For a more comfortable and healthier environment, consider installing radiant heat flooring in your home.
