I really like radiant heated floors, but until you have walked on moderate radiant heated floors on a chilly Winter time afternoon, you haven’t lived.
I decided to purchase radiant heated floors last year after having a recognizably terrible winter. Don’t get myself and others wrong, it is normally chilly here plus I do like in a chilly climate however this was terrible even for here. There was always frost on the windows plus the air even indoors with the gas furnace running had a bite to it. It wasn’t a pleasant experience plus I had decided that I wanted to get something more than my average oil gas furnace. While my oil gas furnace does do its job of heating the house, it is not as great as Central heating plus the two of us all need to be in the same room to stay warm. The further you are away from the moderate room the colder it gets to the point where if you are on the opposite side of the house you might as well be outside. Which is why I decided to not only get a central oil furnace installed by the local Heating, Ventilation plus A/C company but I also get radiant heated floors. It wasn’t cheap however now the two of us are no longer freezing, then now I can really enjoy all that the radiant heated floors have to offer, now everytime I want to just take a afternoon to kneel back plus relax, I don’t have to worry about the floor being ice chilly underneath me. Now more rushing to find my slippers or socks, I can walk in my bare feet if I chose to do so. It allows myself and others a modern kind of freedom that I didn’t know I was missing out on.
