Homeowners in North America are Turning to Radiant Heat

Radiant heat is a smart heating concept that has been around a long time, providing homeowners with unprecedented comfort and efficiency. Though its efficiency is unmatched, the technology only continues to advance. Radiant heat is proven to work more effectively than traditional heating systems, and operates at least 25 percent more efficiently than forced-air systems, the most common home heating method in the United States.

In Europe and Asia, 40 and 80 percent of homes, respectively, are warmed by a radiant heating system. Oddly enough, U.S. consumers have been slow to adopt radiant floor heating into their homes; but, as Bob Dylan once observed, 'the times, they are a changing'. With benefits that can no longer be overlooked, increasing numbers of American consumers are discovering the energy savings and clean, silent operation of radiant heat. Perhaps most notably is the enhanced indoor air quality benefits provided by radiant heat because of the elimination of dust and allergens blowing from vents, not to mention the elimination of vents, bulky radiators, and baseboards. In addition to the comfort and convenience of heated floors, installing a radiant heating system can also increase the value of your home.

Another advantage of radiant heat is that the systems are easy to customize, so regardless of your home heating needs, you’ll be able to find a floor heating system that is tailored specifically to best heat your floors. Because installing a heated floor requires science, not guesswork, Warmzone® carefully evaluates your needs before professional system designers provide a detailed system layout that includes all the system specs, so all the information is on hand prior to any installation taking place.

Radiant heat systems are only as good as the installation, which is why Warmzone provides the valuable design service, as well as free installation support services, and even free installation training for installers. Warmzone’s professional radiant heat design team is not only committed to creating the system that best meets your floor heating needs, but fits within your budget as well.

Whether you are building a new house that a heated floor system can be planned for, or adding radiant heat to your existing floor, Warmzone has a wide variety of energy efficient radiant heat solutions to choose from. Warmzone's website is perhaps the most informative radiant heat site online, and their representatives are experienced pros who are friendly and willing to discuss your project with no obligations.

These informative sites provide links to instructional videos, installation manuals and other documentation, and some of the best, most extensive radiant heat information resources online. Together with one of the largest online libraries of radiant heat documents, illustrations, and how-to guides, you should be able to find the information you need to steer you in the right direction.

What to Look for When Searching for the Best Radiant Heat Provider

Keep in mind that it is important to deal with professionals that include comprehensive services, such as complete radiant heat system design and free, personal installation support. It is vital to determine that the provider has a dedicated installation support staff and system design team before making any purchase decisions. Too many companies claim to offer installation support in hopes of enticing the customer to buy, but in fact, if they DO offer support, it is usually limited, and often provided by an available sales person who is not an electrician or an expert installer. And since the sale has already been made, he/she will have little incentive to spend much quality time with you to ensure your system is installed correctly when they can be collecting commission by fielding sales calls. The sad fact is that many providers don't have the personnel or expertise to provide the proper kind of one-on-one assistance. You deserve to have a dedicated staff of electrical experts and radiant heat professionals on hand, who are there to assist you or your contractor at all times during the installation. Warmzone is one of the few companies that is structured to legitimately offer that service.

A radiant floor heating system is only as good as the installation, so having access to an experienced installation support staff is the best way to ensure that you spent your money wisely, knowing each system will be installed correctly and performing as advertised.
