Keeping the home warm and cosy over the winter months will be one of the most important things for many. And yet, it is often very hard to do so successfully without it costing a fortune in heating bills or leaving one with cold patches scattered around the home.
The reason for this is that radiators are simply ineffective ways to heat any building, and many other countries realised this a long time ago and swapped radiators for other heating options.
Under floor heating distributes warm air far more effectively than radiators and far less heat will be lost through windows and ceilings, meaning that the home will be much more comfortable, and it will cost far less to get it that way. However, installing under floor heating may not be cheap, unless you happen to decide to get new floors at the same time.
The cost of installing new wood floors alone is one that many people feel they cannot justify, despite the fact that such flooring makes the home look and feel warmer and more attractive. However, by combining the installation of under floor heating with wood floors, you may be able to share certain costs and find that the cost of both is reduced as a result. Since the former will save individuals a huge amount of money, it will suddenly be very cost-effective to get such heating and solid wood flooring at the very same time and reap all the benefits such a solution can offer, not just in the winter but all year round when you factor in just how attractive such flooring can make one’s home.
So if you have considered opting for a wooden floor but decided you couldn’t justify the cost, just by adding in a new heating solution, you may find it actually saves you money over time.
