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.

Mike has come to our house a few times in the last few years for my furnace and AC that are getting older. He’s always very friendly and super informative. And my dog LOVES I am! It’s actually adorable how my dog wants to sit right by him while he is working.I feel like I can trust him to give me an honest opinion.Looking at other reviews, it looks like my intuition is right!

Highly recommended! In addition to installing a new AC unit in a new location, we also hired them to relocate our furnace and gas line - all part of a basement remodel. The workers were very knowledgeable, and worked with us through every detail/measurement to ensure our ultimate project would be a success. Kudos to Rob, Lynn, and Jessica for taking great care of us!
