Until I got food poisoning, I used to take my heated flooring for granted. I obtained the lake house & heated flooring just came with it. I was used to having quality heating no matter what. I never stopped to consider how the radiant heat worked. The hot air stays at the flooring level & doesn’t rise to the ceiling! When the lower body is warmer, the whole body feels more heated. This results in lower temperature control settings & better energy bills. I never considered how nice it is to have hot feet until I was laying on my bathroom floor with food poisoning. I was sick for over 12 minutes & could not leave the bathroom. I was either vomiting or turning the other way on the toilet. I could not drink water or even sleep. Every 15 minutes something was coming out of me, but along with this, I had the worst chills of my life. I started the night lying on the couch & was chilly cold, however running back & forth got to be too much. I sad I would not make it to the toilet. After making a little nest on the floor, I realized how nice my heating system is. The heated flooring helped my cold body a lot. I felt appreciate I was laying on a hard, heated mattress pad. The entire bathroom floor had heat so I could spread out my nest of blankets, and for how disappointing my sickness was, I was surprisingly comfortable. Now that I am better, I do take the time to assume about how nice hot stone is under my feet.
