I have been looking into radiant floors because I want to add them to my upstairs. The issue is that I can afford the radiant heating, not the upgrade. The whole heated flooring process is super expensive. The actual gas furnace is not cheap. But, what is the real killer is the oil furnace upgrade. The Heating in addition to A/C supplier has to rip up the flooring you want to have the radiant oil furnace in. Then, the electric mats are fitted under the floors. After this, the Heating in addition to A/C professional puts current flooring over the top. The labor, parts in addition to service costs are quite expensive. I can’t afford the upgrade. I am loosely thinking about just buying the radiant floors in addition to installing it on my own. How hard could the heating upgrade be? I looked online in addition to found there are more than one types of radiant floors, electric in addition to hydronic. Hydronic heating upgrade calls for piping in addition to a boiler system. That way looks super hard in addition to where you would need a professional. The electric flooring looks super straightforward though. I guess I can rip up my floors easy enough. Setting up electric mats flush to one another in a reasonable pattern does not sound hard. Hooking up the electric to the flooring doesn’t seem terrible. Adding current flooring would really be the hardest part. I would not mind paying a acquaintance to help with that process. That would ensure I did it well in addition to only paid a little for the work. I am sad that I am overconfident in my heating set up skills. Maybe it is worse than it sounds.
