When I purchased my second home, it came with something that I was not expecting and that was radiant heated flooring.
- Well it’s not something I am proud to admit, I had never heard of radiant heated flooring.
When I was looking at the house I had to ask the realtor what that was and she explained that it was a heating element that was placed underneath the flooring to keep the floors warm. She didn’t tell me about all of the benefits that I provided and how it was really great during the winter months. I really didn’t think that much of it despite the benefits that she mentioned. However my mind was sure to change and it would change quickly. We were in the cold months of winter and on a Tuesday afternoon it was particularly cold. I went and turned on my central heating system as usual by simply turning the dial on my Smart thermostat. I normally use my phone to control my smart thermostat, however this time I was already near it so I just decided to walk over and change it manually. That is when I noticed a very warm and comforting sensation in my feet and I remembered what the realtor had told me before I bought the house about the radiant heated flooring. The heated floors did an excellent job of working with my furnace to create a perfect toasty and warm home. After I got used to having it and understood what it was I really fell in love with it. Now every home I purchase must have radiant heated flooring, and if it doesn’t have it already you better believe I will be contacting my HVAC company to have it installed.
