Radiant heat is highly desirable for its comfort and efficiency. In place of baseboards and radiators, it uses large surfaces such as floors to emit heat. Heated water is piped under floors and through large radiant panels to provide a very satisfying quality of heat that radiates from the floor or panel.
Radiant heat can achieve higher efficiency than baseboard heat because it uses lower temperature water with larger radiant surfaces. Modern boilers equipped with advanced controls can use radiant emitters to produce the same amount of heat with less fuel and without noticeable changes in room temperature. With the addition of mixing valves, one boiler can deliver high-temperature water to baseboards in one part of the house while feeding lower-temperature radiant emitters in another part of the house.
