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.

Timothy was very courteous and honest. He did not try to upsell on products I didn't need.I asked him about an ion exchange system and he has one in his house. So that was a no brainer for me, so I had him order one for me.Every employee at your shop is well trained and kind..

Our furnace was not working we had no heat. I called 1st Choice Heating and Cooling they had service tech. come the next morning to do repair. He was very courteous asked me what was happening with the furnace to get a better idea of what to look for. After finding the problem and explaining everything that needed to be done he did the repair. He noticed a couple things that weren't adjusted correctly adjusted them to make the furnace run better. He explained everything he was doing which made me feel good about what he was doing. I never felt pressured about anything that was being done. I'll let friends and family know this is the company to go with for any HVAC or AC problems. In fact my neighbor is the one who told me about 1st choice and I thank her for that. Thank You, R.Mesa ,Our AC unit went out on us it was old and needed to be replaced. I called 1st choice heating and cooling and from the start they worked with us to get it taken care of. Once again my wife and I were very pleased with work and the techs that did the work. There the best.
