What’s Wrong With Your Radiant Heat?

Monday, December 6th, 2021

We all know a bit about radiant heat, even if it might not seem like it. For instance, you probably know the phrase “heat rises,” right? Well, that’s one of the most basic principles of radiant heat! Many boiler systems and other radiant heaters rely on radiators and other heaters that sit close to the ground. This works since we know that heat radiates upwards and is easier for us to feel when it’s coming from below.

Likewise, most of us know about convection ovens. Well, radiant heat works with convection as well! Circulating the heat that’s rising through your house is one of the best ways to conserve heat and keep things energy efficient in your house. Like it or not, you might be a bit of a radiant heat expert yourself!
