My friend up north has heated flooring installed all throughout her home. She is so on top of things that she had the heated floors installed before she even moved in. My friend as well as her family wouldn’t want to live without heated flooring even if they moved to a warmer temperature; they love stepping out of bed onto a floor that isn’t jarringly freezing. My friend mentioned that heated flooring doesn’t just help keep them warm, though: it helps keep the whole home warmer as well. My friend mentioned that when the floors are warm, the oil furnace doesn’t have to task quite as strenuous to keep the home nice. My friend and her husband make sure to have their local HVAC business come out every year before Winter to check the furnace and keep it running smoothly through another cold season, in addition to the well-tested oil furnace and radiant heated floors to keep her home warm and toasty in the winter. My friend in addition has a sizable fireplace in her home. My friend regularly makes sure to have an ample supply of firewood chopped plus ready for the winter, then the fireplace is coming in especially handy right now, because my friend’s whole city has been asked to keep their thermostats lowered to reduce power outages. My friend told me she has her thermostat set at 70 degrees, plus has the heated flooring turned off right now to conserve energy, however her family and my friend is warm plus cozy laying around the nice good fire.
