The biggest mistake of my life was not getting heated flooring for my house.
I had everything in the venue too.
The home had an outdated boiler system in the basement. All I needed to do was hook pipes to the boiler plus then have that piping go throughout the floors. I was redoing the floors at the time too. Every room however the lavatories were being redone. I looked at the cost plus decided not to. I owned a boiler plus it already provided acceptable heat, then what was the point of radiant floors? Well, I changed from carpet to tile plus I felt how chilly it got in the winter. The boiler is good, however the heat rises naturally. My feet are freezing. I had to buy a bunch of part carpets plus wear socks in the house. I also redid the lavatory floors plus got heated flooring for those spaces to try it out. I love it. The lavatories are so comfortable in the winter. It is nice having the heat at your feet, however you naturally feel warmer. It is a quieter, cleaner, plus more efficient way to heat. The rest of my home is just not as wonderful now. I want to rip up the tile plus beginning again… Sadly I can’t justify that. There is no way to do heated flooring without removing the floors either. So I am stuck until my floors wear out. The upgrade crew did a wonderful job. I bet I am stuck with these floors for 15-20 years. That is a long time to not have heated flooring.
