Radiant Home Heating systems encompass a wide variety of products and methods of operation. The one thing that they all have in common is their ability to radiate infrared heat to the home environment in the same way that the sun radiates infrared heat to the earth's environment. This commonality however is often overlooked in an effort to differentiate between various products and methods of operation. Not only is the commonality overlooked but there is often substantial differences of opinion as to the exact manner in which radiant heat systems work and how they are differentiated from other heating systems.

It is our hope that we will be able to stimulate radiant heat discussion be referencing and reviewing many pages on the World Wide Web that present different understandings and opinions. We believe that the radiant home heating industry will benefit from a clearer view of what actually constitutes a good general definition and explanation of how radiant heat works.
