Radiant heating is widely regarded as a very comfortable and healthy form of heating. It is based on the primary source of heat we all know – the warmth of the sun. It warms you and the objects around you instead of the air itself. The warmth felt from the sun is not warm air but actually infra-red energy. Like the sun, radiant heat moves in straight lines, warming all the objects in it ́s path which in turn warms up their surfaces that then become heat convertors, re-emitting their own heat energy thus preventing people losing warmth to cold objects such as walls, floors, tables, chairs, etc. The key aspect of radiant heat is its transmission by electromagnetic waves.
