Fred and I made some plans for our ideal home. As Fred and I met with the supplier to make some suggestions for our dream house the subject of Heating and Air Conditioning came up. Fred and I knew that him and I wished for central air in our home, that was never a concern. The debate was over what model of a furnace Fred and I would have installed into the house was. My Fred wanted hydronic heated floors, plus I wanted just a heater. I had grown up in a house with a plain heater and I wanted 1 just like it. I really loved the sound of the heater kicking on plus pushing out the warm air into the room. I also liked that I could lay by the heating vents when my two feet were so cold that they were numb. My dogs also enjoyed to take up residence near the warm heating vents. My Fred on the other hand grew up with hydronic radiant flooring! My man liked that there was less noise with the hydronic heating. Fred also said that our baby would like radiant floors more as well. The baby would tottle and literally be hands on the floor. It made good sense to make the heater in our flooring level. When it comes to they model of heating Fred and I have in our new house it comes down to this. Who is it more important too? I want a heater just like my parents! Fred wants heated flooring just like his mom and dad.
