Is Radiant Heat Efficient?

 

What makes radiant heat more efficient? 

With radiant heat, the heat is created right where it is needed. Traditional systems like forced air heating, create the heat in a single location (like the basement) and distribute the heat throughout the home. This can be inefficient since the heat cools as it travels through the ducts and some of the heat is lost through gaps and cracks in the ductwork. Electric radiant heat systems can also take advantage of renewable energy systems such as solar or wind to further increase their efficiency. If you are thinking about installing an alternative energy system in the future and looking to purchase a radiant heat system today, electric radiant heat may be a great choice for you.
