Learn the facts and don't let some shady radiant

Low-voltage cables require a control box and transformer, whereas line-voltage cables only require a thermostat. Low-voltage cables are not safer once embedded in a medium, and operational costs are not any less expensive. Line-voltage cables tend to be less expensive per square foot when heating smaller areas.
