Cut down on your energy bills with heated flooring
Some people believe heated flooring is an expensive luxury. While it's true that it is a luxury, it doesn't have to be expensive. In fact, installing radiant heating under your floors could actually save you money in the long run. Instead of getting a shock from floors that feel like ice cubes, imagine stepping out of a hot shower and onto warm, comfortable tiles. Turn your luxurious fantasy into an affordable reality with hot water radiant floors.
No heat wasted
According the Department Of Energy, radiant heating is more efficient than traditional baseboard heating. It's also better than a typical forced air system. Why? Because when a system that uses air has to push the heat through vents and ducts, some of the energy is lost along the way. That's heat you have to pay for, but from which you benefit nothing. With a radiant system, there's no lost heat. The DOE went on to report that water-based radiant heating systems use very little electricity, saving you even more money in the long run.
Radiant heating can be installed under any type of flooring, so not only can you jump out of the tub and onto warm tile, you can get out of bed in the morning without worrying about catching a chill. Say goodbye to those annoying carpet slippers!
Convenience and ease
Radiant floor heating is convenient for the simple fact that, once it's installed, it's completely out of sight. This Old House magazine reported that they preferred this type of home heating to other kinds because it's far less annoying to deal with when compared to old clunky radiators and dusty air vents. The magazine also pointed out that a radiant system ensures that heat is more evenly distributed.
Before the cold really sets in this season, consider getting heated flooring installed in your house. Never worry about frozen feet again.
