What is Radiant Heating?
Radiant Heating is the method of heating the floors in order to transfer heat to the occupants of a room. Orbit Radiant Heating offers a floor heating system that will give you the most consistent room temperature from floor to ceiling compared to any other heating system.
Radiant heat is more efficient than convection heat, because energy (heat) is transferred only when the energy wave strikes another surface. This means only the floor and the air directly above the floor and your feet – are actually warmed. Hot air rises with a convection heating system, carrying the heat with it towards the ceiling where it is not needed, wasting energy. Radiant electric floor heat is a more cost-effective solution – and radiant heat installation is simple.

Where can a radiant heat system be installed?
Electric in floor heating can warm just about any floor. And radiant roof heating and sidewalk heating can melt snow and ice from any surface. For floor warming, electric radiant heat systems can be used with materials such as tile, stone, marble, hardwood, laminates or carpet. Nexans Cable systems can be used with slab or frame construction and hardwood flooring. Nexans Millimats (floor heating mats) are well suited for any type floor, and work especially well for thin-set mortar installations. And radiant heat costs are affordable!
