Radiant floor heating controls the rate at which our bodies lose heat better than any other heating method. This is because radiant floor heating heats objects in the same way that the sun heats the earth. Radiant energy warms the floor and the objects in contact with the floor. This prevents your body from losing heat to cold objects in the room. It is a scientific fact that heat energy is always drawn to cold objects. When we stand on a cold floor or next to a cold wall, we feel cold. This has nothing to do with the air temperature, and everything to do with the fact that heat is being lost from our bodies to warm up the cold objects around us. This heat loss is controlled with radiant floor heating. The radiant warmth keeps us comfortable at a lower thermostat setting.
