Types of Radiant Heat

Some methods of radiant heating in Milwaukee and Waukesha are listed below.

  • Radiator – These are usually large cast iron fixtures located near or below windows. They radiate heat into the room when water heats them. This is considered a high-mass radiant type.
  • Cast Iron Baseboard – These are cast iron fixtures on your baseboard that start convection of air when they heat up. These are considered a medium-mass radiant type.
  • Copper Fin Baseboard – These are usually, as the name suggests, fixtures that sit at the baseboard level of a home. These use a copper tube running through aluminum fins to start convection. These are considered a low-mass radiant type.

The Advantages of Radiant Heat

Radiant heat is more efficient than baseboard heating and is usually more efficient than forced air heating because you don’t lose the heat you can lose through gaps and leaks in ductwork. Further, people with allergies can prefer radiant heating because, unlike a forced air system that distributes allergens in the air supply, radiant heat simply supplies warmth.

Radiant floor heating systems are very different from the radiant panels often used in walls and ceilings. Despite its name, radiant floor heating depends heavily on convection, the natural circulation of heat within a room as air warmed by the floor rises. That rising heat is what keeps your home warm.

Boiler went out. It took 3 visits to get it repaired… but 1st Choice was persistent and got my heat back on. Thank you!

Heat went out of course on one of the coldest stretches we've had this year so far. Called first choice and they came out that morning! Justin was great! Went through the trouble codes and cleaned what he thought was the problem. Nothing major. But as we were talking after and paying for the bill, the furnace went out again. It was a head scratcher. Back to square one. He was there another half hour at least when he finally had a hunch and went outside and discovered we had covered up our intake outtake pipes for the furnace with tarps as we had covered up our outdoor furniture. Who knew. He showed me where the pipes were, I uncovered them and now everything works great. No extra charge either. I highly recommend first choice. Justin you are great!
