Design of wall heating system

nullA wall heating system, otherwise known as radiant heating, is a choice that many home owners are not aware of. However, the choice has been around for a very long time. There are two types of modern wall heating systems, the convection option and the Hydronic. Each of these options works differently to heat the home and can be very efficient as well as cost effective.

The convection option uses air movement to heat the rooms in the home. This is called forced air. Pipes are used t push heated air through the home to provide warmth. The Hydronic option uses radiators in the base boards or in the walls to provide heat in the home where it is needed. This form of heating can be as efficient as any other form of heating.

Most times, radiant heating systems are installed during the construction of a home but it can be installed as a remodeling project. To install this option, coils are laid out on a smooth prepared surface which will be similar to subflooring. The option will then be insulated so the heat will be able to push through the walls to heat the rooms in the home.

After installation, the coils will be connected and the hot water or electricity will be used to warm the coils. The coils will then become hot and allow the heat to rise out of the wall and warm the home. Furniture near the walls will warm up as well which will all the heat to hold in the room. This type of heating can work very well and keep you nice and cozy in the home.

This type of installation is best left to the pros. A professional technician can easily install this option if you are building a new home or would like to remodel your home for this heating option. However, a remodel may be very costly, so you will want to be sure that you are ready and able to pay for this option. It is best to budget the price of the remodel first before diving in.

Home owners who are interested in this type of heating option should speak with their local HVAC providers. Your local provider will be able to access your home and help you determine the cost of the installation. A professional technician will also be able to show you how the system works and let you know the exact process of installation. Once you understand fully the process, you will be able to determine if you would like to make this addition to your home. Home owners should be aware that because this unit is costly, they may not see a return on their investment for some time.
