Since hot air rises, forced air heating systems deposit hot air at ceiling levels while temperatures at the floor areas remain low. Usually the system is run continuously in order to achieve floor level warmth. By contrast, radiant floor heating systems emit warmth evenly from from the floor. This provides warmer temperatures at floor level and lower temperatures at head level.
Physiological studies have shown that people are comfortable when their feet are warm but they find excessive heat near their faces unpleasant. This is how radiant floor heating systems by Efficient Heating Technology allow you to remain comfortable at 4–6 degrees lower temperatures than usual which results in 25–40% energy savings.
