How Does Radiant Heating Work?

Radiant heating systems do not heat air and then distribute that air throughout a home via ductwork, in the fashion of forced air heating systems. Instead, radiant heating systems heat the walls and/or floors of a home directly, and this heat then radiates out to objects throughout the house, the human bodies therein included. This can be achieved in a few different ways. Electric radiant cables can be installed behind walls or in the floors. You can also use a boiler in order to heat water, and then circulate that hot water throughout the house via a hydronic heating system.
