If you have a problem with a freezing home in winter, then you should think about installing some radiant floor heating so that you can keep warm and snug. With many floors nowadays you have to walk around with three pairs of socks and thick slippers during the winter. This might not even be enough.
Floors are normally tiled which is very cold, and some wooden ones can also be cold. Usually the under floors are concrete based which makes carpeted homes cold too. The best way to get toasty toes and be able to walk around bare foot in winter is to get your floors fitted with radiant floor heating which goes underneath your floor covering.
You can get this to heat to the desired temperature from a digital dial that you can control easily. You can turn it off in summer or have it on low when the weather is turning.
When you have the coldest night of the year, you can have it on the highest setting to be comfortable. You will not longer need to suffer when you get out of bed in the middle of the night to see to the baby, or when you need to get up in the morning for work.
It is just so much easier to live with a warm floor and you can enjoy the winter months a bit more or at least tolerate them. The best thing about having the radiant floor heating is that you can use it in any room in your home, which means that you can have it on in the bathroom where you can’t wear shoes or slippers.
You can also choose to use it in a few rooms and not in others, and when you go to bed at night you can simply leave your room floor heating on as well as the bathroom perhaps. You could choose to just leave the kitchen floor heating on if you want to enjoy a midnight snack, or you can have them all off. The choice is yours, but if you will need to use some of them, just be sure to give them enough time to heat up because it can take a while.
Before you decide that you need to get the radiant floor heating you should check to see if you can get one installed and that there are no structural or other kinds of problems.
