We don’t allow shoes in our house anymore

We used to let our kids run around in our house with their shoes on. As you can probably imagine, this led to a lot of dirty, muddy messes on our floors! Then a couple of years ago, my husband John and I decided that we were going to do a major remodel on our house. We redid the kitchen, all three of our bathrooms, and all of the flooring and the painting. The thing was, we knew at that time that we really needed an upgrade to our HVAC system as well. We just didn’t know what kind of heating and cooling system we wanted. And so we met with one of local HVAC contractors to talk with him about the options we might have for our house remodel. The first thing he told us about was something called radiant heated flooring. Radiant heated flooring is a kind of heating system that uses either water or electricity to heat your floors from heaters placed underneath them. With this type of heating, the heat is conducted through the floor’s surface instead of being forced through heat ducts and air vents like regular forced air heating systems. Well, as soon as he told us about that, we decided that we wanted them in our house. And since we were planning on changing our floors to porcelain tile anyway, it wasn’t a big issue to get the new type of heating installed. Now, we never let our kids wear their shoes in the house anymore. And it’s not just to keep our new floors clean. It’s because the kids love walking barefoot on our new cozy heated floors.
