Discover the World of Radiant Heat. Long Island Heating Company Tragar Home Services offers radiant heat and baseboard information. Underfloor radiant heat is simply the most comfortable heat on earth!
Most Comfortable Home Heating Option
Comfort is the most compelling reason to consider radiant heat. With underfloor radiant heat, temperatures are higher at floor level and decrease toward the ceiling. And when your feet are warmer, you feel warm all over. Because radiant heat is installed under the entire floor surface, heat is evenly distributed with no hot spots. Radiant heat puts the heat where the occupants are, not at the ceiling, as conventional systems do.

Imagine sitting comfortably in your home instead of breaking your back shoveling next time your area gets a winter storm. This can be possible with driveway heating by Tragar.
History of Radiant Heat
The Romans were using radiant under floor heating in 670 A.D. The notorious Emperor Caligula had it installed in his barge using terracotta pipes and a wood fire. The principle was simple: warm water circulated in tubes placed in the floor. That principle remains unchanged nearly 2000 years later. Today, radiant under floor heat is the most popular form of central heating in Europe. People in North America and the rest of the world are beginning to appreciate its many benefits.
