My neighbor is always on top of things when it comes to the climate in our town.
She always plans ahead for the cold or the heat.
For instance, she had her radiant heated floors installed into her family’s home before they even moved in! She said that heated flooring doesn’t just help keep the family’s feet warm, though: it helps keep the whole house a lot warmer. She said that when the floors are warm, the HVAC unit doesn’t have to do its job quite as hard to keep the home warm which saves on electric bills. They are always sure to have their local Heating and A/C corporation come out every year before Winter time to check the gas furnace as well as the HVAC unit and keep it running smoothly through another freezing season in our city which gets a lot of snow; In addition to the well-inspected HVAC unit and radiant floors to keep their home really warm as well as also being comfy as well as toasty in the winter, my happy neighbor also has a large fireplace in the living room area. She always makes sure to have an ample supply of firewood chopped and ready for the winter for that fireplace… The fireplace is coming in especially handy right now for them, because the full town has been asked to keep their control unit thermostats on the wall lowered to reduce power outages. My friend and neighbor told me he has the thermostat control component set at 63 degrees, and has the heated flooring turned off right now to conserve energy in the happy house, but the family is hot and cozy sitting around the roaring fire.
