If we opted to go for radiant heated floors, we would still have to consider some type of cooling plan and the radiant heated floors are lavish to have installed.
With our experience having a new HVAC installed at our house, we ran into a few obstacles, then first of all, we had to figure out what sort of HVAC plan we wanted to have installed in our location, I thought it would be simple and we would likely just have the central heating and air conditioning equipment replaced by something similar. The thing is, there are so many chances for heating and air conditioning systems on the market these days, and you have your heat pumps, ductless systems, geothermal, radiant heated floors and the list goes on. My wife and I discussed the peculiar HVAC systems we studied about, and she thought it would be good to have radiant heated floors while I was still thinking about the cheapest possibility available. I considered the pros and cons, but with my plan, we wouldn’t have the fanciest HVAC plan around, but it would still be more energy efficient than our outdated HVAC system. If we opted to go for radiant heated floors, we would still have to consider some type of cooling plan and the radiant heated floors are lavish to have installed. At the end of the day, I convinced my wife that we just didn’t have the money for such a comfortable furnace. I made a deal with her, if we opted to go for the lower priced option, we would work to save up money and eventually sell my house and buy a new location that we could have radiant heated floors in. She agreed that it would be a nice retirement gift; radiant heated floors. I realize she’s somewhat bummed out that she has to wait though.
