The Best Electric Heating Systems

Electric heating is one of the most effective ways to quickly distribute heat within a space, which is why electric heating systems have become increasingly popular. While some electric heating systems are used for supplemental heat, others can actually be used to replace conventional heating solutions. 

This guide will introduce you to the best electric heat systems and help you decide which is the best electric heating solution for your space.

Electric Heating Options for Your Home

Electric home heating is a preferred choice among many homeowners. Not only is electric heating one of the fastest options available, but it also is sustainable, affordable and reliable. There are several electric heat systems for you to consider, including: 

  • Portable Space Heaters — Portable space heaters are perhaps the most flexible and versatile electric heating system. These small appliances can be transported to specific areas where you require supplemental heat. 
  • Radiators — Electric radiators are a more permanent solution for supplemental heat. Radiators can be installed in a specific room or space where additional heat is needed, and they work to circulate the air in the room. However, they do not always provide consistent heat in the entire space, as the area closest to the radiator tends to be warmer than the area that is further away.
  • Radiant Floor Heating — Radiant floor heating is an innovative electric heating solution that can be used as the sole heat source in a space, and can be incorporated into many types of structures. This form of heating relies on electric coils that are installed underneath the floor boards. The coils heat up the floors and the heat is evenly distributed throughout the room. It is a safe and effective electric heating optio

  • Baseboard Heaters — Similar to radiators, baseboard heaters can be installed in areas of room where cold air typically enters — such as underneath a window or along a wall that is exposed to the exterior of the home. These heaters can be a fire safety hazard, though, and they are not always able to provide consistent heat in a given space.
  • Radiant Panels — Radiant panels can be mounted on the wall or ceiling. These types of radiant systems utilize infrared waves to heat both the room and objects inside of the room including those cold leather couches!

Benefits of Investing in Electric Heating 

No matter which electric heating system you choose, you will quickly discover that there are many benefits to utilizing electric heat in your home, such as:

  • Electric heating is a sustainable option, and it is largely considered to be the most efficient way to heat a home. Other types of conventional heating systems, such as those that rely on gas or wood heating systems, waste energy as they work to heat your home. Much of the energy that is being converted into heat is lost through the heating system itself. An electric heating system, however, utilizes all energy that is created in order to heat a designated space. This means that you have more control over when and how to heat your home, and you can better predict your heating costs.
  • Most electric heating options are low-maintenance systems that allow you to enjoy the comfort of your own home with confidence. These systems do not rely on moving parts that need to work together in order to create and distribute heat. As a result, there are fewer mechanical issues and repairs. 
  • Electric heating solutions are one of the most cost-effective heating options available today. Not only do these systems cost less to purchase, but they also do not require the same amount of care and upkeep over the course of their lifetime. In addition, you will spend less in order to operate these systems, so it’s a worthwhile investment for the long-term as well.
  • An electric heating system is going to be discreet and subtle. Most electric heating systems rely on small appliances that can be discretely installed so as to minimize disruption in a room. In fact, some heating systems — such as radiant floor heating — are completely invisible to those in the home. This electric heating system allows you to maximize the comfort and functionality of your room.

Factors to Consider When Choosing an Electric Heating System

The electric heating system that is right for you may depend on a variety of factors, such as:

  • Your specific heating needs. It is important to consider whether you need supplemental heat in a given space, or if you require a new, primary heat source. You also will want to decide if you are in the market for a permanent solution or a temporary adjustment.
  • The size of the space. The size of the space can have a significant impact on the type of electric heating system that you purchase. A smaller space may require a portable or supplemental option, while a larger structure may need a permanent solution. 
  • Any safety requirements that need to be adhered to. You will want to keep in mind any safety requirements or hazards that may be present in a specific space. For example, if a room is going to be frequented by young children, you may need to consider an electric heating system that will be out of sight and out of reach.

The Best Electric Heating System

While there are many electric heating systems on the market today, the best option in most scenarios is radiant floor heating. Radiant floor heating is a permanent, reliable and cost-effective heating solution that can be incorporated into just about any type of residential space. Radiant floor heating not only works with a variety of flooring materials — including wood floors — it also can be installed in various structures, such as garages, sheds and more. 

If you are considering a radiant floor heating system, then you should look for a product that offers:

  • Safe, efficient and innovative technology. While some radiant floor heating systems use hydraulic energy in order to heat a room, the best radiant floor heating systems use low-voltage electricity and thin, flexible coils to distribute heat through the system. In additional, all materials used in the system are created from sustainably-sourced and recycled materials, making this a choice that you can feel good about. At Green Wave Distribution, we feel that our innovative technology helps set our products apart from the competition.
  • Minimal maintenance costs. Given the fact that this heating system is located underneath the floor boards and that it requires no moving parts to operate, it is not surprising that it is one of the most reliable electric heating systems on the market. A low-maintenance radiant flooring system not only reduces the cost of operating the system over the long-term, but it also allows you to feel confident knowing that you will always have heat when you need it.
  • A healthy heating solution. Compared to other electric heating systems that recirculate air to distribute heat, radiant floor heating does not blow air around the room. This means that it also does not redistribute dust, dirt, dander and pollen around the room. In fact, radiant floor heating can help improve the air quality in your home, and also can help you protect other investments that you make in your home because it creates a cleaner environment.

At Green Wave Distribution, we are proud of our innovative radiant floor heating system, which uses low-voltage electricity and self-regulating carbon polymer heating technology to provide our customers with superior results. This premier home heating system will allow you to prioritize sustainability without sacrificing your own personal comfort.
