It seems that the universe wants me to have radiant floors. For a long time I had wanted a radiant oil furnace in our house. My gas furnace refused to die, I just put in new rugs, whatever the reason it never worked on. I now have moved down south full time and having heated flooring is really going to be possible. My fiance and I are totally gutting the summertime home. Everything is being torn out and substituted with new. Both of us decided to change the brick floors to all tile. Both of us bought a special stone cutter and all the supplies to do the task. Before every one of us laid the stone I thankfully did some research. First, stone is the best type of flooring for radiant floors, carpet is no good because the heat stays to stay under the rug. Tile allows the heat to be absorbed and naturally know warmer. Next, every one of us have the stone cutter to do our own flooring replacement. My fiance and I will save quite a bit of money doing all the work on our own. Both of us have done stone replacement before and are quite good at it too. Finally, the existing oil furnace in the home is a small gas fireplace. Both of us can entirely rip that out and just use heated flooring as our 1 heating source. My fiance and I can install the electric mats by ourselves too. Both of us can set the stone over top and then I have quality heating! It won’t cost too much in the end since every one of us have most of the supplies already.
