Older Homes & Radiant Floor Heating
Radiant floor heating is becoming an increasingly popular choice for new homes. It may be the new norm for anyone putting in a new floor, but the concept of an underfoot-heating system dates back to the Romans.
If your home is older, it may have its charms. But it may not be the most energy-efficient of dwellings.
*Consider: About 70% of U.S. residential heat costs are attributed to houses built before 1983.
Why Make The Switch to Radiant Heat?
Radiant floor heating offers a higher level of efficiency than most traditional heating systems. Heat rises and placing air vents on the ceiling or even baseboards results in significant energy waste. On the other hand, radiant heated floors, unlike forced-air systems, generate heat where it can be most efficient.
Thanks to recent deregulation of the natural gas industry, homeowners who have gas heating systems in their homes can opt to receive their natural gas from an energy service company, or ESCO.
“Changes in these markets have provided an opportunity for consumers to choose their supplier of energy,” according to AskPSC.com, the New York State Public Service Commission’s consumer website.
As a result, Long Island homeowners can really benefit by switching natural gas suppliers, in this case from receiving natural gas from National Grid to an ESCO like Tragar Oil, your Long Island green energy company.
