An enclosed kitchen is easier to keep clean than an open floor plan kitchen, for example, because items are contained within the physical limitations of the space. Or, at the very least, the closed kitchen can be exited with a door shut behind, limiting the mess’ effect on the rest of the household and space, particularly the main, high-traffic rooms.
Once in place, hot water radiant heating tubing can be covered up with most types of flooring, although carpet isn’t ideal due to its insulative qualities, which end up counteracting the whole heating idea. Although the upfront installation costs are more, hot water radiant heating is the most popular and cost-effective way to heat a whole house – this system can be up to 30% more efficient than forced-air heating.
Fast-forward to today. In a modern radiant heating system, heat is supplied by electric wires or hot water tubes that are buried under the floor. As the thermal radiation rises up and out of the floor, they warm up everything they touch, which items then radiate heat as well. While the air temperature in an underfloor heating system tends to remain pretty constant, you will feel and stay comfortably warm because the surfaces you touch are warm, which means they won’t steal warmth from you.
Underfloor heating (and cooling, although this article focuses on the heating aspects solely) is, in a nutshell, a form of central heating that achieves indoor climate (temperature) control using conduction, radiation, and convection. Underfloor heating is also commonly known as radiant heating, simply because radiation is responsible for much of the heat felt. (Although this is technically not always the case.)
