Options for Heated Floors
Depending on where you live, winter can be unbearable. Even if your homes isn’t one of those that gets buried in snow every year, it can still be a challenge getting out of bed every morning, much less walking out the door. That’s why so many people are exploring electric floor heating for their home. The technology promises that you won’t just have heat around you, you’ll have it below you as well.
Floor heating systems have been around for decades, of course. Most people are familiar with them in people’s bathrooms. Homeowners have long elected to have heated tiles in their bathrooms so they can go from their nice hot shower to an equally warm bathroom instead of the often jarring feeling of cold tile below our feet.
But technology has taken this simple idea much further. Now it’s possible to have hardwood floors anywhere in your home. What’s more, you can even have heated carpet floors. Imagine the comfort provided you from the combination of nice, soft carpet and a heat source underneath it.
While heated floors feel great underfoot, they also do a terrific job of efficiently heating your home. That’s because heat rises, so you experience the warmth first in your feet and then later as it rises into the atmosphere around you.
If you want something to look forward to this winter, give yourself the gift of heated floors in your home.
