What Is In-slab Floor Heating?
The science behind radiant floor heating is quite simple
Tubes that circulate hot water or electrical heating elements are installed in the concrete slab when it’s poured, turning the thermal mass of the concrete into an inconspicuous radiator of warm, even heat.
Among the many benefits: Your feet are always toasty warm, the temperature is consistent and easy to control, you won’t feel the drafts or hear the noise of blowing air, and no dust or allergens get circulated within your home through air vents. Best of all, you’ll typically pay lower utility costs than with a forced-air system, because concrete floor radiant heating consumes less energy to achieve the same level of comfort.

Electric floor heating systems once installed do not require adjustment, maintenance or third party products to function. Livella recommends making yourself familiar with hydronic heating technologies before making your decision.
