Floor Heating Efficiency and Comfort
The way the heat is distributed impacts the efficiency and comfort of the heating system. Radiant heat warms objects directly and it maintains the natural humidity in a room, whereas convection of warm air tends to reduce humidity, which can make the heated area feel stuffy.
If the whole floor of the room is heated then radiant heat gives a very even spread of heat, whereas convected heating heats one area initially and then takes some time to circulate to reach the required comfort levels. Rising air temperature through convected heating can cause discomfort and overheating, which in turn can reduce oxygen levels, and ultimately cause breathing problems if the air is too warm.
