Underfloor heating (and cooling, although this article focuses on the heating aspects solely) is, in a nutshell, a form of central heating that achieves indoor climate (temperature) control using conduction, radiation, and convection. Underfloor heating is also commonly known as radiant heating, simply because radiation is responsible for much of the heat felt. (Although this is technically not always the case.)
This is a rather interesting and unusual design which features irregular-shaped marble tiled on the perimeter around the tub complemented by wood for the rest of the floor. It’s a way of delineating the tub area in the case of an open space bathroom.
The system must be well designed from the get-go, because it is neither practical nor inexpensive to go in and change an underfloor heating system once it’s in place.
Fast-forward to today. In a modern radiant heating system, heat is supplied by electric wires or hot water tubes that are buried under the floor. As the thermal radiation rises up and out of the floor, they warm up everything they touch, which items then radiate heat as well. While the air temperature in an underfloor heating system tends to remain pretty constant, you will feel and stay comfortably warm because the surfaces you touch are warm, which means they won’t steal warmth from you.
