I used to marvel at the idea of heated flooring. I remember as a child, going into a garage that housed antique cars. The floors seemed to be heated and the entire room made me feel like I was being enveloped in a soft glove. It was truly amazing, and I wondered if it was only for garages. I also imagined that you would have to be rich to be able to afford such a luxury. When I was planning my house out, I questioned the idea of radiant floor heating. I never did get over the floor heating in that garage. I knew that if I could just get the radiant floor heating for my bathrooms, it would make life so much better. I wouldn’t shiver as I stepped out of the shower and stepped onto the frigid floor. I thought how my towels would always feel like they had been hanging on a heated towel bar, and I feel like I was enveloped in velvet. When the contractor told me that now was the best time to lay out the pipes for the heating, I was ecstatic. I was not only going to get the radiant in my bathroom, but it was going to be put throughout my entire home. Once the house was completed, I knew I had to have the family Christmas party in my new home. I wanted to show off the luxuriant radiant heating that had gone into my home. Maybe I’m bragging, but I want to see the jealousy on my brother’s face, because he always said his house was ultramodern and better than mine.
