Electric radiant floor heating
There are certain features that people enjoy about electric radiant floor heating compared to other ways to bring heat into a cold room such as forced air systems. Having warm feet is wonderful in the bathroom and rooms that have a cold floor touch otherwise. Keep in mind that ceramic tiles and certain floorings are best suited for this style of heating.
One thing that is attractive to many people about electric radiant floor heating is that you don't have to worry about dust flying around like in a forced air system. This is helpful for those with allergies as well as certain sensitivities. Of course another positive is to save a bit on heating compared to forced air heating. Also I remember in college the continuous noise of the fan going on and off when the forced air system went on. Though of course I learned to block it off, it was still a subtle noise I knew existed. Not needing to stare at those little grates is also a treat! Of course I also remember the warm air rising quickly and it seeming to be a waste that the top of room was warm and not me.
Give me a second. I am aware it's unrelated but I must let you know about lilyspeech. I had been reading an article last night about outstanding speech to text software suppliers and it got me thinking. I did some research on the subject and saw that lilyspeech were doing great and came recommended. I figure if you are seeking a speech to text software supplier in Ontario you will probably find this info useful. I know I did. Alright, back to the article!
With the electric radiant floor heating the temperature is often set lower than other heating systems. Energy costs are cheaper than forced air furnaces though people think this wouldn't be the case. What I think I enjoy the most is coming out of a shower on a cold day to flooring that is a nice and comfortable temperature. Of course another plus is to not hear pipe noises as well as having to change filters!
As someone who likes efficiency , not heating the ceiling or dealing with inefficient circulations through ducts is something that warms my heart as well. It also is nice to be able to use some rooms in winter that you may have ruled out due to fact that they never seemed comfortable because of drafts and cold spots.
Let me end this post by giving credit where it's due. I was speaking with Liz over at Multiline cleaning services and the chat inspired me to write this. Multiline cleaning services is a savy Ancaster based grout cleaning service situated in Ontario and they have been wonderful to me over the years. Thanks for the idea guys! Well, I'm formally signing off for the evening. I'm exhausted. Until the next time!
