5 Reasons to Consider Electric Floor Heating

16 June 2020

Floor heating is one of the smartest ways to keep your home warm during the harshest winter months. However, there are a plethora of other benefits to installing a floor heating system. Here is a look at five of the top benefits of installing floor heating into your home.

1. Creates Even Heat

When you walk into a room that is heated through a vent or a radiator, you will notice that the system will not heat the room evenly. If you are close to the radiator, it will be extremely hot. If you are too far away from the source of the heat, then you will be too cold. However, when you heat the room from the floor, you will have an even distribution of heat throughout the room. That means there will be no hot nor cold spots. Whether you have a small room or a large room, you can enjoy a completely even distribution of heat to create a comfortable environment.

2. No Air Circulation Contamination

When you push hot air through vents, you have to deal with potentially harmful molecules and bacteria entering your lungs. Think about it this way. A forced heat system is likely to come through a series of ductwork. These ducts can collect dust that is pushed into your lungs. In older ductwork, you can have flecks of fiberglass break off the duct and enter your breathable air. With a heated floor, you don't have to worry about any of these issues. There is no forced air circulation with floor heating. Therefore you enjoy better indoor air quality. A heated floor system is especially preferable for people who have respiratory issues such as asthma. Also, you should consider a heated floor if you have pets in the house. Pets have dander which can become airborne when you have forced air blowing through your rooms.

3. No Noise

When you use an electric floor heating system, you don't have to contend with the noise that comes from an HVAC system or some other heating system. A heated floor is completely silent. This will come in handy whether you are trying to watch TV, read, or are simply trying to sleep. Over time, other types of heating systems will get older and louder. Sadly, these types of systems are harder to silence. In fact, you may have to simply replace a traditional heating system if it becomes too loud.

4. Takes Up Less Space

When you use a heated floor system, you don't have to deal with the space taken up by heating systems and ductwork. Everything on a heated floor is located under the floor. Therefore, it is out of sight, meaning you don't have to deal with the ductwork, cleaning the vents, and all the issues that come with having such a large and intrusive system in your home. With a heated floor, you only have the pipework that is located under the floor taking up less space in your home.

5. It's Energy Efficient

Did you know that the typical household spends more than $2,000 a year on energy bills? Because of that, you need to make sure that your energy bill is as low as possible. That's why a heated floor is a great idea. This type of system requires less energy to heat up your home. Therefore, you will enjoy lower energy costs during the winter. Over the years, you can potentially save hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Also, a heated floor is easy to program because it is controlled by a digital thermostat. That means you can set an exact temperature in your home. In fact, you can program the thermostat to regulate room temperature throughout the day. For instance, you can heat up the room during the evening and lower the temperature during the day when the temperature is highest.

6. Keep Your Home Warm From The Ground Up

There are a number of top benefits to consider a floor heating system. A heated floor system creates even heat, does not circulate unhealthy air, operates silently, takes up less space, and operates with better efficiency, making it one of the smartest ways to heat your home.
