One of the biggest trends in homes right now is hydronic floor heating. In short, it’s the ability for your home’s floors to be warmed to a desired temperature. So not only can you run your heating to keep the air warm, but your floor too will be a sense of comfort.
As heat rises, the closer to the floor you get, the more likely you were to be cold. Not anymore. With hydronic floor heating, the floor can be one of the main sources.
Studies have shown that floor heating can actually help lower energy bills, though. In fact, one study showed thermostats tended to be set at five degrees less than average in homes with floor heating. So not only will you save money, but you’ll save energy too.
The first place this modern marvel started was with warm tiles in the bathroom. This was a hit, of course, as people no longer had to deal with the rude awakening of moving from a nice hot shower to a cold bathroom with freezing tiles. That product’s popularity has now travelled to the rest of the house.
If you’re interested in staying warmer this winter and possibly doing it for less, consider hydronic floor heating for your home. You can save money and energy, all while staying warmer.
