Why Radiant Heat?

to enjoy radiant comfort. Radiant heat comes
right out of the floor all winter long.

More Comfortable

You cannot see radiant heating energy under normal circumstances; a special camera is needed.

But you can certainly feel radiant heat; and it feels good!

Radiant heat is like sunshine, or warmth from a fire; it just makes you feel more comfortable and cozy.

When your floor is warm, your feet are warm too.  The air that you breathe can be a little cooler and more refreshing.

"Since installing your radiant heat system in a retrofit the rooms we installed in are the warmest in our house and our comfort level has risen considerably" -Jeanette, MI

More Energy Efficient

The sensation of comfort is caused by a combination of air temperature and radiant energy that equals the body’s energy needs.  When you receive a greater amount of radiant energy, you will be equally comfortable at a lower air temperature.

It’s like being out in the sunshine. You are more comfortable at a lower air temperature.  This lower air temperature will save you money on your energy bills.

Energy experts calculate that you can easily save 25% of your heating costs with a radiant heating system.

Read a detailed technical description of these energy saving benefits from the scientific experts.

"We are using your system in our new 3600 sq. ft. home and are extremely pleased with the heat quality and the low cost of our comfort. ($93.00 a month). We have also had a record cold winter." -Roger & DeQnne, NY

Cleaner and More Healthful

Healthfulness is one of the most important benefits of radiant heating.  There are reasons why so many families have more illnesses in the winter.

Radiant heating does not blow dirt, dust, bacteria, viruses and pet dander around the house all winter long.

Unlike hot air systems, radiant heat will not dry out your breathing passages and leave them more vulnerable to infection.

One of our customers reported that their children’s asthma medication was reduced by half when they moved into a radiantly heated home.

Child Friendly and Safer

With radiant heat, there are no hot surfaces for children to touch and no radiators for them to fall onto.

They cannot drop their crayons into the hot air ducts.


A radiant heating system is felt but not seen or heard.  There are no radiators to interfere with furniture placement or interior design.

There are no fans or blower noise.  Just peace and quiet.

Simpler and More Reliable

Radiantec Company does not overcomplicate their radiant heating systems.  In fact, we simplify them.

In our opinion, the customer is not well served by a lot of bells and whistles.  It should not take a rat’s nest of controls that no one understands well to operate a radiant system.

If a gadget does not really benefit the customer, Radiantec will not sell it.

Less Costly to Purchase

Even with all of these benefits, you can save money when you purchase a radiant heating system.

Most heating companies cannot say this.  You can buy Radiantec products directly and simplicity saves money. Radiantec systems not only cost less than competing radiant heating systems, they usually cost less than conventional baseboard heating systems and forced hot air.
