More about it:

Radiant heating systems involve supplying heat directly to the floor. The systems depend largely on radiant heat transfer: the delivery of heat directly from the hot surface to the people and objects in the room via the radiation of heat. As an example, radiant heating is the effect of your kitchen warming up when the electric stove is turned on across the room. Radiant heating has a number of advantages: it is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating, since no energy is lost through ducts. The lack of moving air can also be advantageous to people with severe allergies. Hydronic (liquid based) systems use little electricity; a benefit for homes off the power grid or in areas with high electricity prices. The hydronic systems can also be heated with a wide variety of energy sources, including standard gas or oil fired boilers, wood fired boilers, solar water heaters, or some combination of these heat sources. When radiant heating is located in the floor it is often called 'radiant floor heating', or simply 'floor heating'. Despite their name, radiant floor heating systems also depend heavily on convection, the natural circulation of heat within a room, caused by heat rising from the floor. Radiant floor heating systems are significantly different that the radiant panels used in walls and ceilings. For the purpose of this article, we will only be discussing radiant floor heat.
