Radiant Heating in Truckee and Lake Tahoe—The future of heating is here!

Oversized boilers and noisy forced air systems are a way of the past. Imagine a heating system that you didn’t even know was there, and your home was constantly the perfect temperature … all the while, a system that was saving you money from costly electricity bills. This is the idea–and the beauty–behind radiant heating in Truckee and Lake Tahoe.

Why Radiant Heating in Truckee and Lake Tahoe?

Radiant Heating in Truckee and Lake TahoeRadiant heating operates by moving heated water through small pipes throughout your floors (and sometimes walls) to warm the surfaces they come in contact with.

Contrary to forced air heating systems most commonly found in today’s home, radiant heating increases the temperature of the surfaces your body is touching instead. Therefore, while the temperature in your home remains constant, the once cold surfaces your body comes in contact will no longer steal warmth from your body.

But, why is radiant heating better than other heating systems?

For one, radiant heating is less noisy and intrusive than what many homes are equipped with now. As water moves through small tubes in your flooring to heat your walls, it’s almost like it isn’t even there at all.

However, the most appealing part of radiant heating is hands down its energy efficiency. As the electricity heats the water and the subsequent surfaces it touches, it uses dramatically less energy than traditional heating systems. That means that radiant heating isn’t only convenient and comfortable, but it’s easy on your wallet, too.

That being said, radiant heating does require substantial installation costs. Yet, these up-front costs are sure to be outweighed by the comfort, convenience, and cost-efficiency that radiant heating brings throughout its lifetime in your home.
