After weeks of deliberating over which Heating & Air Conditioning plan the two of us wanted for our new home, the two of us finally settled for the heat pump system, with electric radiant heating for the supplemental. The radiant heating the two of us had chosen was a newer model. It was mounted at the top of the wall & they were set up to blow the heating onto the floor. The heat would then go up along the walls, radiating its heat throughout the rooms. I would not need to worry about cleaning & having them in the way of my sweeping & mopping, or vacuuming my carpets. Our new heat pump used the ambient heating of outside & pulled it inside, so it would be able to heat the water that would flow through water pipes & heat the house. Every one of us had the water pipes put beneath our flooring so the two of us had radiant heating without having radiators or ductworks. I always hated needing to place my furniture in certain places just so I didn’t block an ductwork. I didn’t prefer needing to keep my curtains short because I couldn’t have the heat blowing into the curtains instead of the room. With my radiant heating, the heat was already on the floor & I wouldn’t need to worry about chilly feet anymore. I especially loved that the two of us had the heat in the lavatory. Every one of us did opt to not have radiant heating in the living room or in our study room. Every one of us felt that the living room would warm up gently with the heat from the study room, & the two of us liked our study room on the cooler side.
