Did you know you know that electric radiant floor heating is the easiest type of heat to zone from room to room? If you are cold in your family room - in a forced air system, you walk over to the dining room (where the thermostat is) - and crank it up. Vroom - the furnace kicks in, and the vents start pouring out the hot air (yes even in the family room!).
Eventually - you are warm.
Steve (you might be thinking), what other options do I have?
Well - if each room had electric radiant floor heating - each room can also have an accompanying thermostat - which individual controls the floor heat in each room. Hence, the room that you spend much time in- you can warm up. The room you spend little time in can stay cooler until it is being used. This saves power consumption, which keeps the pennies in your pocket!
This is truly "green"!
Recently, I had the opportunity to attend and tour "Greenbuild 2010" at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. It was an amazing show, with unique inventions and major manufacturers exhibiting awareness to energy conservation and preservation of our natural resources. Some had a strong energy story, and others were stretching to connect themselves with the movement. Some had legitimate claims, and others were using smoke and mirrors to claim their "green-ness". Check out all that went on.
I must say that Thermosoft does not need to stretch at all to stake its claim as a manufacturer of products with green features. From zoning of our product, to its 100% energy efficiency usage, radiant floor heating is a "green product".
