Every year I save up a bunch of money and then use that chunk of money to redo a room in my house. I am slowly going through every room in the house and making it perfect. This year it will be my kitchen that gets renovated. I am going to rip up the flooring, take down the ceiling and get all new fixtures for the kitchen. Since so much is being redone, it is the perfect time to think about a HVAC system. My current home HVAC system is no good. I use a boiler system that heats with baseboards. I want to change that to hydronic heating. I plan to remove the baseboards in the kitchen and then install piping to the boiler system. The pipes will go within my new kitchen floors. The boiler then heats water and that hot water is what will warm my new tile. Can you imagine how great hydronic heating will be in the kitchen? I live in a very cold climate and I like to cook all year. The baseboard heaters hardly do a good job. Right now I have to wear slippers and run around the kitchen to keep warm. With heated flooring I can be barefoot while making pasta, cookies or just having breakfast. It will certainly add more value to my home too. My goal is to eventually have hydronic heating stretched throughout my entire home. I plan to rip out all the floors, this is literally the perfect time to do it. It will save me in energy bills in the long run too.
