I am always on the lookout for new information on anything that has to do with our home. My wife and I were not always homeowners. It took a lot of talking, planning and saving before we even took the leap of faith and purchased our first house. The preparations that go into becoming homeowners for the first time seemed endless. I never realized there was so much useless information out there to be had. But, now that we have made the investment, I will do everything possible to make sure it is maintained. One of the first things that we did was install a brand new, state of the art, HVAC system. We live in a region where we actually get to experience all four seasons. However, winter seems to be the longest of them all. If you don’t have a great HVAC system, you will no doubt be miserable beyond belief. We went with a basic system to start, and signed up for a maintenance agreement with a local HVAC provider. We knew that we would eventually upgrade the system when we had the time and money. I really wanted some of the newer HVAC gadgets, however we wanted to first see how the basic system handled its first year in the house. Overall performed fine, but, there was no doubt in our minds that we wanted to install a radiant floor system as soon as we could. All of the research I have been doing on this type of heat indicates that it could save us a ton of money on our utility bills too.
