Radiant Heating Systems in Turlock, CA and the Central Valley Area
We’ve grown accustomed to forced-air heating systems like furnaces and heat pumps being the go-to standard for whole home heating in the Turlock, CA area. They do provide very reliable and efficient services for most homes. However, they aren’t the only type of heating systems out there. Depending on your specific needs, you may do well with a radiant heating system, also known as in-floor heating.
Rather than relying on blown air to heat your home, radiant heating systems use coils or tubes planted beneath the floor to warm your living space directly through your feet and furnishings through the use of hydronic or the more-popular electric radiant baseboards. But these systems do require professional installation from a trained and experienced team. That’s why you should call All American Plumbing Heating & Air for all your radiant heater service needs! Contact us today to schedule heating services in Turlock, CA and the Central Valley area.
How Does In–Floor Heating Work?
Radiant in–floor heating systems use heated coils or tubes installed directly beneath the floorboards of your Turlock, CA home. The coils are either heated through hydronics (heated water) or electricity, which is the preferred choice for most homeowners in our area. Heat is applied directly through the floorboards and into the room rather than being conveyed indirectly through the air.
To have in–floor heating installed requires the assistance of a professionally trained and highly experienced heating contractor in order to get the job done right. Our team lives by the motto of "In the Service of Excellence" and that means ensuring that you know all your heating options in order to make an informed decision about whether radiant heating is a good choice for your home or not.
The Benefits of Radiant Heating
Radiant heating isn’t right for every home, but it has many advantages for those who do choose to go this route. It’s worth mentioning that this type of heater is more costly to install than other options as it either requires pre–construction installation or requires your floorboards to be removed and replaced.
In exchange, though, they don’t cost as much to run as electric forced–air heating systems, since they don’t need as much energy to run the pumps and various components. Additionally, since most of the system is located beneath your floors, it’s not subject to the wear and tear that more traditional systems are.
Lastly, in–floor heating eliminated many of the problems associated with forced–air heating systems, like dust, germs, and other contaminants blown through the home via ductwork. Radiant heating systems do not create drafts or cold spots either, and with routine maintenance and repairs, can last you for many years.
