There are a lot of things that I would like to have.
- Of course, I am a regular person with a job and bills to pay.
So most of the time, I don’t have a ton of extra money to blow on things that I want. At this point in my life, sometimes I’m even scraping by to pay the heating and air conditioning bills every month. And so when I went to stay at a friend’s house during vacation, I was amazed at one of the great luxuries that she had in her house. For heating her home, they used something called radiant heated flooring. With radiant heated flooring, rooms in modern, well-insulated homes can be made warm and toasty! Radiant heated flooring does not heat the air the way that regular forced air heating does. With radiant heated flooring, the heating system heats whatever is in contact with it. This includes ceramic tiles or laminate flooring, rugs, or furniture. My friend said that since radiant heated floors heat surfaces instead of the air, she never has cold feet anymore! This all sounds like a dream to me, since I’m constantly plagued with cold feet. And since I can barely afford to pay my heating bills in the wintertime as it is, I would love it if my heating system were built into the floors! That would be so helpful for me and my cold feet. Anyway, my friend told me that radiant heated floors are pretty expensive and so it’s not something that I’ll be able to have installed anytime soon. But if I were rich, I’d have my HVAC company install them immediately!
