The greatest regret I have is not Springtimeing for heated flooring.
My fiance and I moved down south to Tuscaloosa, AL for his work. My associate and I bought a property and decided to maintenance it up rapidly before the rest of our furniture arrived. My associate and I did all the large stuff first… The chips ceilings were scrapped, sanded, and painted. Then my friend and I sanded and painted the wood walls, but next the floors were ripped up. No more carpets however instead there is a gray tile! I even asked my fiance during the floor process if my friend and I should consider heated flooring. It made sense. My associate and I already had the floors ripped up, however adding electric heated mats would be simple. My associate 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 associate and I wanted to transfer in rapidly. My associate and I didn’t have the time to spend on the floors if my friend and I wanted our furniture not to be in the way, so my friend and I decided to just tile and leave it at that… Well, a year after living in our Tuscaloosa house the furnace died. My associate and I then had to buy a current system. My associate 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 carpets. My associate and I should have gone with heated flooring. My associate and I could have saved so much cash and appreciated this appealing furnace if my friend and I had. Now I am looking to redo the lavatorys and add radiant heat in there.
