My thermostat works great, and so does our oil furnace.
- However, one continuous problem I had was our house consistently being cold! Even with the oil furnace running, it wasn’t so much the central heating method as it was the floor.
The floor consistently gave you the feeling as if you were walking on a block of ice. I had had enough of our feet being chilly everyday. Even wearing socks around the house didn’t help much, then so I decided to install some heated flooring. I saw a DIY kit for sale, however I didn’t want to put down the heated flooring components by myself, so I contacted a Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier that installed radiant floors. When the serviceman arrived he laid down the heat mats that would supply me with the warm floor I had been wanting. The heating and cooling specialist made a comment about how chilly our floor was and he could see why I would want heated flooring installed. It took a few hours to get the heated flooring set up the way I wanted it to be however once it was finished it was perfect. Now besides having an excellent oil furnace, I no longer feel like I am walking on a block of ice. I can even walk around in our apartment with bare feet and feel nothing but warmth from beneath. It is good for those chilly winter afternoons. Now whenever I have friends over, I get compliments on our flooring. it works so well occasionally with our friends plus I even sit on the floor. It is a lot of fun sharing warmth with good friends.
