Pros And Cons Of Radiant Floor Heating Systems

Not long ago, your only real choices for heating a home were forced air, standard radiators, and electric baseboard heaters. Now, there's another choice to consider: radiant floor heating. In this style of heating system, hot water is circulated through skinny pipes that run under the floors in your home. The water heats the floors, and the heat subsequently dissipates throughout the rest of your home.  Many homeowners find this style of heating appealing, but before you agree to have it installed in your home, it's important to consider both the pros and the cons.
