How is it better?
Radiant panel heaters offer a number of advantages over conventional heating methods. Forced–air systems, convection heaters and wood stoves etc tend to produce an uneven heat, with the highest air temperatures being near the ceiling or closest to the source. Radiant panel heating on the other hand naturally draws the heat to the floor and rises from there, resulting in more even temperatures and superior comfort without wasted energy or inflated fuel bills.
“Radiators are quick to respond to desired changes in temperature, but care must be taken to ensure they are correctly sized for the room.”
