I could not believe it when my radiant heated floors broke down to the point where I had to have them replaced! How many time have you actually ever heard of someone having to replace their radiant heated floors? Of course you always hear about people needing a brand new and very up to date central heating and air conditioning system unit. But having an entire radiant heated floor system replaced is not an everyday thing! This is why I was more than shocked when my radiant heated floors fully stopped working, and the local heating and air conditioning specialist told me that he could not repair them and that they would have to be replaced! The cost of having to replace radiant heated floors is nearly as much as getting brand new radiant heated floors in your home. The only cost that comes off of a radiant heated floor replacement is that you don’t have to put out the money for the construction that usually goes into the preparing to instal radiant heated floors. Now what you are paying for in the replacement is the heating mats, the new tile and the labor from the local heating and air conditioning company or private independent HVAC worker. My radiant heated floors seemed to have broken down from just being old and overused. I was one of the first people to get radiant floor heating when the HVAC technology first hit the market years ago. So I guess this was to be expected at some point in time. This replacement should last a lifetime I hope.
