There are many types of home heating today, but you absolutely cannot beat heated floors. Not only are they attractive and easy to maintain, but they’re even healthier for your home. Forced air heating and cooling systems come with a lot of problems. The use of air ducts means there is always a potential for loss of heating and cooling air. The potential only increases as the system ages, requiring the constant need for ductwork cleaning and sealing. With forced air heating and cooling, you also have to worry about keeping vents and registers for your ductwork clear of furniture, as well as dust them. Then there are the air filters that need to be changed once a month, and the professional HVAC maintenance. Heated floors eliminate all of these problems. With a home radiant heater, you no longer have ductwork at all. That means no dusty register, no more buying air filters, and no vents or radiators to keep free and clear. Not only can you put your furniture anywhere you want, but you’ll breathe better too, as dust and dander has one less place to hide. Best of all, the heated floors actually heat your home more efficiently. Since the heat is spread out from wall to wall, rooms no longer have cold spots at all. Radiant heater flooring is about as zero-maintenance as HVAC equipment ever gets. And thanks to new advances in HVAC technology, there are more attractive flooring options available than ever before. With my heated floors, I can walk around barefoot in the wintertime, without even having to pay a high heating bill.
