After weeks of deliberating over which Heating, Ventilation, and A/C idea the two of us wanted for our modern 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 and 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 and having them in the way of my sweeping and mopping, or vacuuming my carpets. Our modern heat pump used the ambient heating of outside and pulled it inside, so it would be able to heat the water that would flow through water pipes and heat the house. The people I was with and I had the water pipes put beneath our flooring so the two of us had radiant heating separate from having radiators or HVAC ducts. I always hated needing to venue my furniture in particular venues just so I didn’t block an HVAC duct. I didn’t adore 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 and I wouldn’t need to worry about chilly feet anymore. I especially loved that the two of us had the heat in the bathroom. The people I was with and I did opt to not have radiant heating in the study room or in our study room. The people I was with and I felt that the study room wouldoverheatedup gently with the heat from the study room, and the two of us liked our study room on the cooler side.
