Radiant heating vs Convection heating
A radiant-floor heating system first heats the objects in the room. Then, the objects heat the air to a certain degree. Convection systems heat the air first – to a fairly high temperature. The air then uses the convection currents to heat the people and the objects in the room. In operation, it is the exact opposite of a radiant-floor heating system. Most people agree that radiant floor heating is more comfortable compared to convection heating.
