The warmth and comfort we feel from the sun on a cool spring day or in front of a crackling fire on a cold winter’s night is radiant heat.
Radiant floor heating uses a very subtle form of this same radiant energy. Radiant heat gently and evenly warms the surfaces of objects in the room. The air in the room is warmed when it comes into contact with the warmed objects, the largest of which is the floor. Heat loss is reduced and the radiant heat remains in the lower part of the room warmer near feet level and slightly less so at head level
A few hundred years ago, people would have given an arm and a leg to have central heating in their homes. Just imagine the
inconvenience of having to light a wood and coal fire in every separate room to keep your house warm. The basic idea of central heating is really simple: you have an easily controllable furnace, fueled by gas, in a handy place like your kitchen or bathroom and it uses water, moved by an electrically powered pump, to carry heat into radiators in all the other rooms. It's simple, convenient, efficient, and it makes even winter days a pleasure to endure!

Whatever the primary reason, everyone seeks quality and value, and the deserved feeling of having made a wise purchase decision that is going to provide satisfaction over a lifetime of warmth
