Are you building a home and have a choice about what kind of heating system to put in it? If so, this is a great opportunity to install radiant floor heating.

The Floors Will Be Easy To Access

One of the main reasons to install radiant heating when constructing a home is because all of the floors will be open and easy to access. It is the perfect opportunity to install the necessary water pipes under the floor, which would otherwise be very hard to retrofit into a floor properly. The pipes have to be installed in a grid pattern so that the hot water can travel under the entire floor and spread an even layer of heat when the system is turned on, and that can best be done before the floors are completely constructed

The Heating Zones Can Be Precise 

By putting the water pipes in the floor during construction, it will give you more control over your heating zones. You can use some strategic planning to ensure that the heat is going exactly where you want it. For example, you can decide to put a guest bedroom on its own zone, so that you can cut off the heat to that room when it is not in use. You can do a similar thing with your kitchen, bedrooms, and living rooms by creating zones so that the rooms are not heated when they are not in use.

The Boiler Can Be Used For The Whole Home

The water boiler for the radiant in a floor heating system is going to heat the water instantly so that the water in the pipes is hot and radiating that heat. However, the boiler is not limited to heating purposes. You can plan to use boiler as your home's instant hot water heating, which provides all the benefits that go along with not having a tank of hot water that needs to constantly be heated so that it is ready to go at any moment. 

The Cost Will Be Much Less Overall

Having radiant heat means that you will be able to save some money during construction and over time. If you do not need central air, you'll save money by not needing ductwork placed in the walls. Radiant heat is also going to save you money on your heating bill when compared to a forced air system. If you plan to stay in the home for a while, there can definitely be some much needed cost savings. Talk to your heating system installation contractors about radiant heating today.
