Radiant Heating Services in Boston and Surrounding Areas
Radiant heat in Boston is like the sun’s heat. It travels through the air until it finds an object. Typical heating systems rely on convection. Convention simply means that the heated air will rise, and the cooler air will fall (unless it’s forced warm air, which is driven by a blower). Have you ever put on clothes that seemed to be cold? How about crawled into a bed that seemed rather chilly under the covers? That’s what happens with convective heating- the air is warm, not the surrounding objects in your home. With warm air, your skin is tricked into thinking that the living environment is comfortable until your skin has to give up its heat to another object!
If you want unsurpassed warmth and comfort, then, without question, your choice should be radiant heat. It is the most comfortable, healthiest and most natural heating process available. In fact, it has been around since the time of the ancient Romans. They directed hot gasses through channels beneath marble floors to warm them. Although directing hot gasses through channels is not an option for most of us today, the application of radiant heat is very much available. We do advise most households to get carpeted floors throughout their homes as this acts as a floor insulator. However, if you choose to have Marble, the upkeep is much more demanding. From personal experience, I would find the best tile steam cleaner because you’re gonna need it every day!
Basically, radiant heat is the transfer of heat from a warm surface to a cooler surface. Radiant energy travels through space without heating the space itself. It only turns into heat when it contacts a cooler surface. The Radiant Panel Association uses the following analogy to describe radiant energy: “Hold your hand over a cup of coffee and feel the heat. The logical conclusion is that heat rises. Logical maybe, but incorrect! ‘Hot air’ rises but ‘heat’ can travel in any direction. That is why you can feel the heat of the cup when you place your hand to the side of it.”
