A couple of years ago, my husband and I decided to install a boiler heating system in our house.
- It all started when I went to visit a friend of mine who has radiant heated flooring in her house.
I was so warm and cozy in her house with those radiant heated floors that I couldn’t believe it. After I got back home from my trip, getting radiant heated flooring was the only thing I could think about. I was obsessed with it. I looked at radiant heated flooring systems online all the time, and I went to talk to our local HVAC company about having a new heating system installed. They explained to me that the best way for us to use radiant heated flooring effectively in the freezing cold part of the country where we live is to connect it to a boiler heating system. Now, I never in a million years thought that I would ever purchase a boiler heating system. I thought that boilers were outdated and somewhat dangerous, to be honest. But when the HVAC technician told me that having a boiler system would be a great way to start using radiant heated flooring, I was sold! When you link your boiler system to radiant heated flooring, you’re able to heat your entire house with it. Hot water from the boiler travels through your pipes and can be linked to the flooring, which will in turn keep your entire house warm and toasty! Plus boilers are clean and very quiet. Now I have exactly what I always wanted, along with something that I didn’t even know I wanted!
