The Benefits of Radiant Heat for Utah Homes
More Energy Efficient
Radiant heat is more affordable than forced air because it takes less energy to heat the home and less heat is lost through the ceiling and roof. Not only does this save you money, but it also helps reduce your overall energy consumption. In-floor heat keeps your family comfortable at a lower air temperature than forced air heating.
Say Goodbye to Cold Feet
Radiant floor heat makes your floors warm to the touch in the cold winter months. This is ideal for people who hate cold feet. The evenly spaced tubing that circulates hot water radiates an even, gentle heat into your living space. Believe it or not, the heat will actually radiate up through furniture, rugs, and walls.
Higher Air Quality
Customers should consider using a radiant floor heating system if they require high air quality in their home due to allergies, asthma, or similar conditions. Unlike forced air heating, a radiant floor heat system does not circulate dust, dander, pet hair, and other particles throughout the home. This makes for much higher indoor air quality, and it also makes it easier to keep the home clean.

Thornton Plumbing and Heating offers smart thermostat installation to help our customers make the most of their radiant floor heating systems.

Wireless smart thermostats provide exceptional convenience by allowing homeowners to adjust the temperature in their home from anywhere. They can also be programmed to reduce the temperature in certain rooms when they are not being used. By creating a daily schedule with your smart thermostat, you can drop the temperature in your home while you sleep and still wake up to the coziness of a warmed bathroom floor.
