  • 6 Reasons to Warm Up to In-Floor Heating (6 photos)

    With origins dating back to ancient Rome, in-floor heating isn’t anything new, but it’s come a tremendously long way from its distant roots. The technology has gone through plenty of permutations and countless improvements over the centuries. Homeowners today are probably most familiar with those electric heating mats designed to lend warmth to chilly floors—say, in the bathroom or back hall. In-floor heating can, however, do a lot more than just heat the floor. In fact, as experienced in hydronic radiant systems from industry leaders like Warmboard, the technology delivers a viable alternative to traditional forced air and can heat the entire home in a remarkably comfortable, energy-efficient way. Already a popular choice in Europe and Asia, in-floor heating remains relatively rare here at home.
