Radiant Floor Heating: Is It Safe?

Even though the technology has been around for decades, radiant floor heating still seems futuristic. It’s often reserved for high-end homes seeking the added comfort of having warmth generated from beneath the floor.

Radiant heating is often prized for its silent operation, improved energy efficiency and ability to heat cleanly, but how safe is it? The short answer is that radiant floor heating is absolutely safe!

Read on for more details:

How Safe Is Radiant Floor Heating?

Consider the questions you may have and the general safety issues that may arise with radiant floor heating:

  • High heat: If a radiant heater malfunctions and produces too much heat, the surrounding materials could be damaged. In extreme cases, the excess heat could even present a fire hazard. A temperature control device connected to the thermostat prevents this.
  • Severed wires: Some amateur installers cut loops of heating wire to fit the system to the room’s size. This can be very dangerous though, because cut wires don’t transfer current correctly.
  • Spliced cables: Splicing heating cables with nearby systems may result in uneven currents pairing together. This can create shorts in the circuit, sparks and, potentially, a fire. Radiant heating should be installed on a dedicated circuit to prevent this.
  • Shock: Some radiant floor heating systems could produce dangerous power surges if electrical problems occur. Installing a system with ground fault protection is an easy way to prevent shock.
