What is Radiant Heat?

Radiant heat refers to heat transferred by way of contact via infrared radiation. Much like the Earth receives warmth from the sun, radiant heat travels through any space at the speed of light, creating a more evenly distributed sense of warmth throughout a room. Unlike forced air heat produced by centralized heating systems like furnaces, radiant heat attaches to any object in its way.

Hot Air Rises so Why Mount Heaters Near the Ceiling?

Most people grew up in homes which were heated with hot air, and as we all know, it rises. Most people do not understand radiant heat. Radiant heat will heat anything in its line of sight up, down, and sideways, it does not matter. Radiant Heat does not rise like hot air but rather travels in a straight line until striking an object. So the first place radiant heat goes is down not up.

Why Heat Objects?

Air is very light and easy to heat. Therefore, it can change temperature quickly. Air temperature can fluctuate excessively in a home heated with forced air furnaces and hot air baseboards. This not only wastes energy but also creates an unpleasant environment in which to live. Chairs, couches, floors, beds, and tables, all weigh considerably more than air so they are far more difficult to heat and likewise to cool. Comfort Coves® placed high on the wall close to the ceiling heat all of the objects which maintains an extremely constant temperature. Warm floors, beds, chairs, and even temperatures are much more comfortable than hot-cold temperature fluctuations and cold floors, beds, etc.

Does Comfort Cove® Cost Less to Operate?

We have all sought out the warmth of the sun on a cold day. Even though the air temperature is the same in the shade, we feel warmer in the sun. So it goes with Comfort Cove® Radiant Heat.
