New Mexico – What is electric radiant floor heating? Radiant heated floors have been around since the Roman Empire in one form or another. In the United States, electric floor heating has become a popular trend for both new and retrofit projects. Nevertheless, there’s still a learning curve among many homeowners.

Traditional heating systems heat the air, which then warms up the people in the room. Radiant heating systems work by directly warming the people and objects in a room.
The floor temperature can be set as high as 104° F, but users will typically set it to a more comfortable range of between 80° F and 85° F and control it from a thermostat from there.
This type of heating often feels like the warmth of the sun, because radiant heat warms via heat radiation. This allows people to feel warm even when the ambient (air) temperature in the room is actually cooler.
It’s the same concept as standing in direct sunlight vs. standing in the shade.
