What’s Really Better …. Radiant Floor Heat or Forced Air?

Radiant floor heat will trump forced air heat any day. The reason is simply because it’s more efficient! 

According to Bob, rooms that are heated by forced air “warm quickly, but then cool equally fast, forming a yo-yo heating pattern that can prompt you to constantly adjust your thermostat, causing your furnace to turn on and off, wasting energy.” Getting your house the right temperature can be a constant battle with a forced air furnace.

Radiant floor heat in your Ann Arbor home can be up to 30% more efficient, making your home comfortable faster and with less parasitic heat loss. “Because radiant heat is embedded in the floor, it will keep you warmer than heat that congregates near the ceiling. This saves energy not only because you can lower your thermostat, but also because radiant systems need to produce heat in just the 75 to 80 degree Fahrenheit range, as opposed to the 120 to 140 degree Fahrenheit temperatures generated by forced-air systems.”
