First off, this unique combination of items isn’t for every home; you’d only be interested in this if you have radiant heat. What is radiant heat, you ask? Simply put, radiant heat is a method of heating your home in which there is piping or tubing installed in the floor. Hot water runs through this set-up, typically at a temperature of 120° F. Heat leaves the water and transfers to the objects in the room, resulting in an even blanket of warmth. This is widely considered the most comfortable way to heat your home. It also so happens to be the most expensive to install, too.
