Is Radiant Heating System Repair Worth It?

A radiant heating system provides excellent and unique comfort, but it can be a hassle to install, repair, and maintain. Is it really worth it for you and your family? Let’s walk through some of the benefits and drawbacks.

We’ve seen a lot of radiant heat repair in Morton Grove, IL over the years, and we have an inside perspective that you won’t find in many other places. Let’s tell you everything you need to know about the longevity of a radiant heating system.

The Benefits

  • Unique and fantastic comfort: The way a radiant heating system warms your home is unlike any other residential heater on the market. They can effectively heat up your space so that you get to a comfortable place as fast as possible.
  • Energy-saving design: Radiant systems are extremely energy efficient, offering a minimal impact to your monthly heating bills while you get to experience high levels of comfort.
  • Low-profile design doesn’t restrict you: When you think about installing a new heater, what comes to your mind? Probably a clunky, bulky system that’s an eye sore, or at the very least, a rolling space heater that doesn’t properly warm the floor anyway. Radiant heating is the way to go.
  • Quick installation: Despite what it may look like, radiant heating systems are relatively quick to install. While the process is involved, it’s nothing for experienced technicians like us to handle.

The Downsides

  • The initial cost to install:* The installation price may be higher than you’re thinking. This is a unique type of heating system, and as such it comes with unique costs factored into the total price.
  • The installation process can be inconvenient: While it is a short process, it’s still a very involved process, so you may feel like the areas you want your radiant heating system installed in are upside-down for a little while until we’re done putting it in place.

So, is it Worth it in the End?

It depends on what you value in comfort. For us, cold floors on a winter morning in Morton Grove, IL is a very unpleasant experience. Being able to warm your floors before you get that morning cup of coffee and get ready for work is a much more relaxing way to start your day.

We believe that radiant heating systems are worth it for families that put a high value on their comfort, and already have sufficient heating systems to deal with their air temperature throughout the day. It’s worth it to install and continually repair your radiant heating system as needed.
