Every Winter, I wish that I had radiant floors! Right now, my house is equipped with a variety of heaters. We operate one upstairs and a pair of gas gas heaters downstairs. They are all rather outdated and barely handle the heating demand. I want to rip them all out and invest in radiant floors. The floors in the house get so uncomfortably cold. I blame it on the fact that we have a basement under the house. The cold air in the basement makes the first floor super cold. I can barely stand on the ceramic tiles in kitchen. I need to wear heavy socks and slippers everyday during the Wintertime. Working out is difficult because my feet and legs go numb. I am convinced that electric radiant floors would be the perfect way to go. I would tear out all the outdated and stained carpet and tile to install the radiant system. The electric mats would retrofit into the first floor and supply ample heating. I would not even bother to do the upper floor of our house because it is nice and warm up there anyway. The radiant flooring plan would provide cleaner, quieter and way more efficient heating than what I am currently dealing with. The only negative is that this type of heater is super costly. I also would have to spend extra money to have the floors removed, then then replaced with new. I would have to invest a lot of money into this heating upgrade. It is difficult to make myself spend so much on something that is only used during one season, but, during the winter it is a necessity.
