3 Reasons You Need Radiant Heating In Your Luxury Home

Construction & Contractors Blog

When it comes to building a luxury home, careful attention must be given to each and every detail during the construction process. Many homeowners fail to take into account the dramatic impact a home's heating system can have on its form and function in the future. If you want your new home to be a luxurious as possible, then you should consider the installation of a radiant heating system.

Here are three reasons why no luxury home is truly luxurious without radiant heating.

1. Radiant heating systems are quiet.

If you have ever heard the whir and hum of a traditional heating system kicking on, then you know how intrusive these systems can be. The noise created by a traditional furnace doesn't end with the mere kicking-on of the heating unit. The heated air being forced into each room in order to maintain a comfortable temperature can also create a clatter.

A luxury home should be quiet and peaceful, and a radiant heating system can provide this tranquility while still keeping your home warm by eliminating any noise associated with the production of heat.

2. Radiant heating can be more affordable.

The construction of a luxury home doesn't come cheap, so you may want to find ways to save money on your monthly living expenses once you have moved into your new living space. Opting to invest in a radiant heating system while your luxury property is being built can help you save energy in the future. Since radiant heating emanates from the floors of your home, the surface of the objects within your home are heated.

Traditional heating systems only warm the air in a home, and family members may experience some heat loss when coming into contact with cooler couches, floors, and beds. With radiant heating there is no heat loss, which allows occupants to feel more comfortable at a lower temperature. This reduces the amount of energy required to keep your home a warm and inviting space.

3. Radiant heating won't interfere with your interior decor.

Your home's interior decor can contribute significantly to the feeling of luxury within your custom space.

Traditional heating systems rely on vents and returns to circulate air throughout a home. These vents and returns cannot be covered if you want to maintain proper air flow, which can limit your decorating options when it comes to furniture placement. Since radiant heating emanates from the floors themselves, you are free to arrange your furnishings however you see fit in order to create a more luxurious living space.

Understanding the long-term benefits that radiant heating can provide allows you to see why investing in a radiant heating system is a must for your new luxury home.
