According to a recent industry report, radiant heating sales hit growth levels in the first quarter of this year that haven’t been seen in over a decade.
WarmlyYours, a manufacturer specializing in electric floor heating, released its “Q1 2021 Industry Report” earlier this week. This quarterly report analyzes the sales of radiant heating products within the wider context of the national housing and remodeling markets. One of the primary conclusions drawn in the report was that floor heating sales were up 31.1 percent when compared to the prior-year-period.
Julia Billen, owner and president of WarmlyYours, said that she believes one of the core factors for floor heating growth so far this year has been increased optimism concerning the worldwide pandemic.
“I think a lot of people are starting to see light at the end of the tunnel as case levels continue to drop. That positive energy has to go somewhere and for a lot of homeowners that has turned into a renewed focus on home improvement projects,” said Billen. “And with increased consumer awareness of radiant floor heating, we’ve seen a lot of those home improvement projects incorporating floor warming systems for the first time!”
