How does radiant heat in the ceiling work?

Radiant heating systems supply heat directly to the floor or to panels in the wall or ceiling of a house. The systems depend largely on radiant heat transfer -- the delivery of heat directly from the hot surface to the people and objects in the room via infrared radiation. Radiant heating has a number of advantages.

Is radiant heating expensive?

For new construction, a hydronic radiant floor system is likely to cost more than forced hot air (ducts and registers) or hydronic systems (baseboard radiators). Electric radiant floor heating costs about $6 per sq. ft. for materials but is often less expensive to install because of lower labor costs.
