Last year, I had decided to do something a little unusual. You see, I have this house on the lake that I go to and use for the summer time months, and last winter, I wanted to just stay there all year because I like the atmosphere of the place. In order to go and do this, I had to have some upgrades made in order to make this possible. The main thing as you probably guessed was the heating. What I decided to do was go with radiant heated floors. Since my home has tile flooring, it was not a big deal to have the radiant heated floors installed. Of course, it was going to be a bit pricey, but I took out a small loan and just went for it. A friend of mine told me that having radiant heated floors in an all tile home is one of the best ways to save money on your monthly energy bills. And of course, who does not want to save money! The whole entire installation of the radiant heated floors took about a half of week to do, in which during that time I was staying back at my normal home. My friend let the heating and cooling specialists in and out for me while they were working on the installation. I can tell you, having these radiant heated floors was probably the best investment I ever made. Not only does it heat the house better than any heating and cooling system could, but it really has saved me a ton of money on my electric bill. My electric bill was 40 bucks a month lower than it is back at my regular home with using a central heating system!
