Very happy with heated floors

I was born and raised in Elgin, Illinois. Other than a brief departure for college, I’ve lived in the area my entire life. The city is located about thirty-five miles northwest of Chicago. It is close enough to take advantage of the amenities of a big city yet far away to avoid the hustle and bustle. I appreciate the four different seasons. The summers tend to be fairly short, hot and humid but are a great time to get outside and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The Northern Fox River Valley offers nature centers, forest preserves, parks and some really gorgeous terrain. There are 36 miles of trails available for biking and hiking. The early fall weather is perfectly cool and the season is well-known for the stunning colors of the leaves. I look forward to the farmer’s markets and buying fresh apples, peppers, squash, zucchini and pumpkins. Spring is always a welcome relief after the long winters, bringing an abundance of lilacs, hyacinths, tulips, daffodils and so many flowers. The winter is an opportunity to go skiing, snow-shoeing, snowmobiling and sledding. Because winter definitely lasts the longest and is so extremely cold and snowy, a powerful heating system is a necessity. Until just recently, I’d always lived in homes outfitted with a forced air furnace. It is definitely the most popular style of heating. My new house features a boiler system and radiant floor heating. It is such an improvement. The equipment is entirely concealed beneath the floor, taking up no living space. It doesn’t detract from aesthetics, make any noise or introduce contaminants into the air. Heat is spread evenly across the floor and rises slowly, eliminating stratification. Radiant floor heating is ideal for the winters in Elgin.
