Why Radiant Heating Systems Are Best For Lodges
Relaxing in your very own cozy log cabin is a dream for many of us, but without the right heating solution, a lodge can feel more like an outbuilding – cold and unwelcoming. A radiant heating system could provide the perfect solution, particularly for those with a DIY mindset. So, let’s take a look at why radiant heating systems are perfect for lodges.
How Does Radiant Heating Work?
A radiant floor heating system works by circulating heated water through a grid of tubing laid under the flooring. The heated water transfers its radiant heat and spreads it to the rest of the room. The temperature is controlled by regulating the flow of water through the tubing using a network of valves and thermostats.
What Are The Benefits Of Radiant Heat?
One of the main benefits of a radiant heating system is that it provides heat all over the home and not in a particular area. From an aesthetic point of view, a radiant heating system also improves a lodge’s internal look as it is installed within the floor itself, so you can do away with ugly radiators and free up more wall space for furniture, windows, and doors.
Safety First - Lodges & Heating Systems
If you have young children and pets, safety will rightly be at the forefront of your mind whether at home or at a lodge. Although a traditional wood burner adds character to a lodge, such an accessible heat source with pets and children running around may not be the best option. Furthermore, traditional radiators can get very hot and can quickly become a hazard. Radiant floor heating systems are installed under the floor, which means there is no risk of accidents, giving you peace of mind and allowing you to relax and fully enjoy your lodge.
Good For You And The Environment
Radiant heating systems don’t use air to distribute heat around the lodge, which also means dust and other allergens won’t be picked up and moved around the property. This will be welcome news if you have young children or family members with asthma and other lung conditions.
Another advantage is that radiant floor heating doesn’t affect the moisture content of the air, so you don’t have to worry about humidification or the growth of molds and mildew inside your lodge, a clear advantage if your lodge is situated in woodland or near water.
