Just the other year I bought my first household. It had been quite a few years since I had graduated college and after many roommate situations, I decided it was time to venture out on my own. I knew right away that I didn’t want a new household. I saw many beach households in carefully planned subdivisions but the idea of a neighbor on either side of our beach household was not a nice thought to me. So I had my realtor search further outside the city. The first couple of households that we went to didn’t quite fit the dream that I had in mind of my first household. I realized that I needed to purchase a site that I could update and remodel to my personal style. My mother owned her own Heating and Air Conditioning corporation when I was growing up so I knew the extreme importance of evaluating the HVAC device thoroughly to estimate service or update cost for our remodel. I made the decision to ask my mother to help me with this decision. I wanted to install in floor heating in the rooms of the beach household that would not have carpet. The household had a boiler heating device that had been installed when the household was initially built. One pick for a heat source for in floor heating is a hydronic system which can utilize either a boiler or a common water heater. My dad explained that since our beach household already used radiators, there was a great chance that our existing boiler could take on the hydronic system as well. In a hydronic system the boiler or water gas furnace heats water, which is then pushed through a loop of embedded tubing and then overheated water heats the floor. Having a heated floor to step onto when getting out of the shower was actually a lovely option.
