    Default Radiant Heating

    All heating systems are definitely not created equal. One of the most desirable, radiant heating is unmatched in comfort and performance. Incredibly, some forms of radiant heating actually trace their roots all the way back to Ancient Rome. Technology, of course has added countless improvements ever since.
    Radiant heating is a technology for heating indoor and outdoor areas. Heating by radiant energy is observed everyday, the warmth of the sunshine being probably the most commonly observed example. Radiant heating as a technology is typically more narrowly defined. It is the method of intentionally using mostly the principles of radiant heat to transfer radiant energy from an emitting heat source to an object. Designs with radiant heating is seen as replacement for conventional convection heating. But also as a way of supplying confined outdoor heating.
    Radiant heating can also be used for snow melting and for roof and gutter de-icing applications. For roof de-icing, heating elements can be placed on the surface of the roofing material and some technologies can be placed underneath the roofing materials. Heating elements are used in gutters and downspouts to prevent ice buildup that can cause ice dams and icicles. Radiant heating is also used on roofs to eliminate heavy snow loads that can cause structural damage.
