I have been thinking of adding heated flooring to my house. I already have a boiler system located in my basement. All I would need is to get some piping and have it installed in the floorboards. The issue is that the current flooring I have would need to go. The heating installation requires the flooring to be ripped up and then the piping installed within it. My old wood flooring would not survive such a harsh heater install. So, because of this, I will need to budget all new flooring around the house. If I cheap out and get tile or laminate, I could have the hydronic heating system right now. I don’t want to cheap out and have ugly floors. I want to have quality hardwood floors. This will cost a lot of money to have all throughout my house and then adding hydronic heating to it. I think it will be worth it in the end. Can you imagine how well hardwood will heat? I think having wood flooring will be better for the heating system than a rug or tile. The wood also will look classier and that will fit the hydronic heating style. The floors will look beautiful and then while standing there the heater will warm your feet. I just really need to get saving in order to make this wish come true. The cost of labor, parts and the actual system will be quite a bit. I don’t want to cut corners on the floor or the hydronic heater either. It is just too important.
