When I have the radiant flooring installed I also had a professional supplier come in and re insulate the home as well.
One of the best presents that I ever gave myself was the installation of my radiant flooring. The winters used to be the most miserable part of the Year for me but now I have genuinely come to cherish them. I used to spend the four months out of the Year complaining and feeling achy and freezing all the time but since I had the new boiler put in my overall attitude has changed. I suppose this has a lot to do with the fact that radiant flooring allows an even heating throughout the entire home and I never have freezing spots anymore. When I had a conventional boiler and air ducts I would constantly have drafts going through the home and have particular areas that were warmer than others. When I have the radiant flooring installed I also had a professional supplier come in and re insulate the home as well. This was quite an investment although I felt that it was currency well spent and that being able to cherish my home year round was more important than any amount of currency. If you are ever considering upgrading your new Heating, Ventilation and A/C system I would highly propose this form of heating; You can still utilize your new air duct or your a/c while in the Summer so it is important to maintain that as well. Your local Heating, Ventilation and A/C company will be thrilled to go over all of this with you and they normally even have companies that will help make your home more efficient temperature wise too. Often these types of industries labor closely together to make sure that purchasers get the most out of their currency invested.
