The Efficiency of Radiant Heating

Radiant heating is a type of heating system that uses tubes to distribute heat throughout floors and walls of a building or room. Instead of having a radiator in every room in your home, radiant heating emits heat through the tubes and up through the floors, heating the floors beneath you. This increases the surface area of your heating system, making it more efficient.
