How to Cut Home Heating Costs This Winter


ome savvy homeowners are having their cake and eating it too when it comes to energy- efficient home heating. Imagine cutting your


heating bills, while boosting your home’s comfort. Sound too good to be true? Not for the thousands of homeowners who are using radiant floor heating, one of the oldest and most efficient means of heating a home. The technology, dating back to the ancient Ro- mans, uses warm water to heat the floor, instead of a furnace to heat the air.

It’s 65 degrees out- doors, and you are standing under a large tree. You may feel a bit chilly if there’s a breeze; but as soon as you step into the sunlight, you’re comfortable again. The air temperature is roughly the same in both sun and shade, but you feel OK because the sun’s radiant heat waves warm you directly. The same concept applies to a home with radiant floor heating. As the invisible waves of thermal radia- tion rise from the floor, they warm you and all the surrounding furnishings, which radiate that captured heat.
