The settings continue to change
My mom has been an old school kind of woman for as long as I’ve been alive. When it comes to the newest, latest and greatest from the heating and air conditioning industry, she sees no point in upgrading what they have now. Insisting that her indoor air quality is fine the way it is, she believes that her time-tested radiator under her living room window does plenty to warm her through the winter. That may be so, but why tolerate mediocre heating when you can have something more? I’ve explained to my mom several times now – her radiator system can be improved greatly, simply by switching over to a radiant floor heating system. It functions like a radiator does, and emits warm air from the floor of the house instead of a single spot. On top of that, there’s no fire hazard with a radiant floor heating system, as there is no component that can be touched by accident. My mom is getting older, and while she’s still mentally sound, I know that she isn’t as resilient to injury as she was when I was a kid! So, I feel the radiant floor heating system is not just ideal for heating her home more effectively, but also is a safer means to provide warmth through the colder months. I’ve told her that the best part of a radiant floor heating system is the compatibility with smart thermostats, so she could have this new heating system as well as a temperature control device that can be adjusted remotely. It’s an investment, sure – but it’s an investment that will pay her back in spades!
