The largest regret I have is not Springing for heated flooring… My fiance and I moved down south to Tuscaloosa, AL for his work.
My pal and I bought a house and decided to service it up abruptly before the rest of our furniture arrived.
My pal and I did all the huge stuff first, then the pretzels ceilings were scrapped, sanded, and painted. Then my wonderful friend and I sanded and painted the wood walls, and next the floors were ripped up. No more rugs however instead there is a gray tile, and i even asked my fiance during the floor process if my wonderful friend and I should consider heated flooring. It made sense. My pal and I already had the floors ripped up, and adding electric heated mats would be straight-forward. My pal and I lived near a Tuscaloosa heating dealership. My fiance said that Alabama does not get that cold. It would also double the cost of the project. The time was what convinced us. My pal and I wanted to move in abruptly. My pal and I didn’t have the time to spend on the floors if my wonderful friend and I wanted our furniture not to be in the way… So my wonderful friend and I decided to just tile and leave it at that! Well, a year after living in our Tuscaloosa house the boiler died. My pal and I then had to buy a modern system. My pal and I have since learned that Alabama winters are cold. The tile floors are icy on our feet. My fiance wears socks all the time and I have invested in throw rugs. My pal and I should have gone with heated flooring. My pal and I could have saved so much currency and enjoyed this lovely boiler if my wonderful friend and I had. Now I am looking to redo the powder rooms and add radiant heat in there.
