Oceanside Radiant Heating Repair & Installation Specialists

What is Radiant Heating?

Turnabout Plumbing and Heating are specialists in Oceanside Radiant Heat systems - Radiant heating is a technology for heating indoor and also outdoor areas too. Heating by radiant energy is observed every single day in nature, the warmth of the sunshine being the most commonly observed example.

When it comes to Oceanside radiant heating there are many positives:

Forced Air Heat VS Radiant Heat

Keeping your Oceanside home warm and comfortable is your number one priority for you and your family as winter approaches and the choice of forced air heat versus radiant heat may well be a valid consideration. Comfort, energy-efficiency and safety are also major issues when choosing a heating method for your Oceanside home. Not to mention the cost of installation, maintenance and equipment may also play an important part too.

Therefore learning more about your home heating choices is necessary in making an informed decision on such an important consideration.

What is Oceanside Forced Air Heating?

Forced-air heating involves a central furnace heating air with a burner flame or electrical resistance coils and a motorized blower fan. The blower fan continuously draws cooled air out of your homes rooms through the return ducts, then reheats the air at the burner, then finally pushes the hot air through the supply ductwork to all rooms that have vents.

What is Oceanside Radiant Heating?

A radiant heating system incorporates a boiler to heat water and pumps to circulate it through a network of narrow plastic tubes embedded in the concrete slab or installed beneath wood sub-flooring. Heat rising then warms the rooms from the floor up. Some newer systems use a grid of electrical resistance wires that generate warmth instead of tubing carrying heated water.

The Oceanside Home Heating Verdict

In short there are pluses and minuses for both systems of Oceanside home heating choice, and of course homes differ in many different ways as do their owners budgets and tastes, but with the advent of newer and the increasing rapid pace of technology radiant heating is becoming more and more popular and for very good reasons, not the least of which is economically.

The Economics of Radiant Heating

Because heat from a radiant floor remains closer to floor level heat energy is not wasted by being collecting at the ceiling and therefore less loss of heat occurs into the attic. Radiant systems lose up to 25% less heat this way. Plus the wavelengths of infrared heat energy produced by a radiant system tend to reflect off windows (especially double paned glass) and stay inside the house, rather than conducting through the glass. So when properly designed, a radiant system can reduce heating energy consumption by up to 50%.
