Radiant tubes are used in systems that require extreme heat above 1,200 °F. The goal of radiant tubes is to transfer heat to the load through irradiation. Heat exchange occurs when the combustion fumes are generated by the burner and then are conveyed through the tube. Let’s take a look at some facts about radiant heat that you might not know.
What is Radiant Heat?
Radiant heating is a simple system of tubing that is installed underneath the floor of a home or building. Hot water runs through these tubes to heat the area.
Does It Save Money?
The short answer is yes. Since radiant heat warms the room from the ground up, you don’t need to have the thermostat so high. Also, since the heat stays low less of it is needed to keep you and others warm.
Can Radiant Heating Systems Only Be Installed in New Construction?
The simple answer here is no. Radiant heating systems can be installed in any building no matter how old it is. It can also be installed individually in only certain rooms or spaces.
Can Radiant Heating Systems Freeze?
Freezing is rarely a problem with radiant heating systems. Usually keeping a system running, even at a lower thermostat setting will keep a system in working order.
