My friend Anne is always ahead of things when it comes to combating cold weather.
She recently had heated flooring installed in her home even before she moved into it, and her family feels they could not live without heated flooring even if they moved to a warmer weather conditions; Anne had said that heated flooring doesn’t just help keep her and her family’s feet warm, though: it helps keep the whole home warmer as well on top of that.
She said that when the floors are warm, the furnace or heating system doesn’t have to work quite as hard to keep the cabin toasty warm. Anne and her hubby always make sure to have their local Heating as well as Air Conditioning corporation come out every single year before Winter to check the heating unit before the freezing season sets in, but in addition to the heating unit as well as the radiant heated floors to keep her home sizzling and toasty warm in the winter, Anne also has a huge fireplace in her family room. She regularly makes sure to have an ample supply of firewood chopped and ready for the winter time months… The fireplace is coming in especially handy right now, because Anne’s whole entire city has been asked to keep their thermostats on the wall lowered to reduce power outages in the area. Anne told me she has her control component of a thermostat set at 65 degrees, and has the radiant heated flooring turned off right now to conserve energy, but her family is sizzling, warm as cozy sitting around the roaring fireplace.
