"Radiant heating is also ideal for those who live with allergies or asthma. There are no noisy fans to blow allergens, dust or pathogens through an otherwise healthy interior."
Instead of heat collecting on the ceiling and making upstairs too hot while downstairs remains cool, radiant heating ensures an even temperature throughout the home. It is easy to control and adjust on a room-by-room basis. By using the zoning feature, occupants can optimize comfort in some rooms, while turning down the heat in others to conserve energy. McCord says this means Warmboard offers an eco-friendly heating solution for your home.
"There are several radiant options available. For warming small areas, like bathrooms, electric mats under tile keep your feet warm. But when you want that cozy comfort throughout your home, along with the lowest heating bills, Warmboard's patented water-based technology, delivers both by combining high conductivity with fast responding, low mass panels.
"Each Warmboard panel has a thick layer of aluminum bonded on top and tubing is pressed into the channels in this surface, " says McCord. "The flow of warmth from tubing to aluminum to the floor surface whether it's wood, carpet or tile is extremely efficient, creating a highly responsive heating solution."
In addition, homeowners are able to set water temperatures lower, saving on energy, and wear and tear on the system. Warmboard homes run water between 80-120ºF while other radiant systems operate between 110-180ºF.
