How Radiant Heating Works
Radiant heating works by directing energy to thermal panels and other distributors that absorb and then radiate the heat outward. These panels can be used in walls and under floorboards to transfer heat and trap it in nearby surfaces where it can be spread to larger areas. Older radiant heaters utilized heated water which created steam to heat small metal radiators. Today’s systems offer far more control across much larger areas using embedded metal tubing that can easily heat large areas through hydronic heating. The best part is that many radiant heat systems can utilize existing energy sources, including boilers, LP and electric.
While the professional technicians at Oliver service, install and repair all types of heating systems, we’re especially proud to provide care for radiant heating systems.

- No ducts means more efficiency and reduced potential for heat loss
- Heat can be directed to a single room or even a single surface for targeted heating
- Offers gentle warmth without drying indoor air
- No forced air flow means radiant heaters are beneficial for allergy sufferers
- Different fuel and energy sources can be used depending on the system and the installation
