Floor Heat Advantage
Hard floors can be cold and icy even when it’s warmer outside. This is because of how our heating systems work, which only heats the air inside a room rather than warming up all areas around them like you would expect from natural sunlight or fireplaces for example.
A lot of people might not know that hardwood floors are more susceptible to this problem due to their massive size compared with other materials such as carpeting!
There are a number of ways to solve this problem, the most common being to install radiant floor heating. Radiant floor heating is a type of system that heats the floor surface directly, rather than heating the air within the room. This results in a more even distribution of heat, and the floor surface will reach the temperature set by the thermostat more quickly.
When it’s cold outside, nothing feels better than coming home to a warm floor. But what happens when you have an old house with forced air heating? The floors will be colder than expected because of how much bigger they have compared to the rooms inside!
The solution to your heating needs is using floor heating. All surfaces within the room are heated equally, which includes you and any furniture that may be present in an interior space during winter months when it’s too cold for comfort!
Choosing the Right Equipment
A thermostat designed specifically for radiant floor heating will make sure that it is only turned on when needed, and then maintained at your desired temperature by periodically cycling through different temperatures so the surface remains comfortable all day long without ever getting too hot or cold! Heated floor are best choice to warming up homes now.
The thermostats also include an option to install a floor temperature sensor, which in turn provides the following options:
Hardwood floor temperature limiting: Hardwood floors can dry out and suffer damage due to thermal expansion. Many hardwood flooring companies specify a maximum temperature of 85ºF (30ºC). The thermostats allow a maximum floor temperature to be set.
Maintain a minimum floor temperature: This is especially useful in bathrooms. By maintaining the floor between 80 to 85ºF (25 to 30ºC), the floor feels warm to the touch.
Maintain comfort in rooms with large amounts of southern-facing glass windows: These rooms are often overheated during the day by solar gain through the windows. Typically this could result in the radiant floor going cold during the day. By maintaining the floor near the desired room air temperature, the room remains comfortable, even when the sun sets in the evening.
With our specially designed thermostats, you no longer have to worry about the temperature rollercoaster ride that forced air heating can give your feet. We use pulse width modulation and indoor feedback technology so it always stays at an ideal level without ever being too hot or cold for comfort!
Many hardwood flooring companies specify a minimum of 85 ºF (30 ºC). If you prefer not having any restrictions on how warm your floors can get, use this option; however remember that if there is direct sunlight hitting the wood all day long then it will likely overheat and become unsafe for children or pets alike!
Radiant floor heating systems can be a great way to heat your home. They’re efficient and comfortable, and you can easily control the temperature of your flooring with a thermostat.
Our thermostats offer a variety of features that allow you to customize your heating experience, including programmable night setback schedules, optimum start functionality, and indoor temperature feedback.
