Benefits of Carpets for Bedrooms
A carpet clears the indoor atmosphere by trapping dust particles. The contaminants are embedded in the carpet fibers and will remain there until the carpet is vacuumed. According to the German asthma foundation, carpet absorbs dust more than any other flooring, resulting in cleaner indoor air.
Carpet also offers decent insulation, allowing for energy savings of 4-5% in the summer and up to 10% in the winter. Carpets are not the most appropriate flooring when you have radiant heat in your home. However, some styles will allow the system to do its job. When looking for a good carpet under radiant heat, look for a lower pile. The pad is as critical as the carpet. Rubber pad is the best underlayment for a home with radiant heat
