Well, its taken over several years but my wife and I have finally, after much trial in addition to tribulation, finished renovating our basement… The people I was with and I knew from the moment both of us bought this townhouse that both of us wanted a basement both of us could absolutely use. Besides, this one was in good shape to begin with… And sure, it was a lot older, but periodically with houses–especially basements–older is absolutely a lot better. See, this old Colonial was built to have a basement you can absolutely use to store fruits in addition to vegetables in the winter. That means it was built to stay nice in addition to dry–our contractors were actually impressed with it. The only trouble was getting heating in addition to cooling down there. See, our townhouse is so old that it runs on a gas boiler. The boiler itself is a modern condenser boiler model that works to reclaim a lot of heat, which makes it incredibly efficient in addition to cost effective… However, the pipes for this central furnace are not original; they’re practically original to the house. So adding on modern piping for this system, especially getting it down to the basement safely, ending up eating a huge hole in our budget… It was either relay the piping for the boiler, or put in an additional heating in addition to cooling idea entirely. In the end, both of us made the choice to go for the secondary heating idea in addition to having radiant floors installed. Since both of us needed all modern floors anyway, it was easy enough to do. These electric radiant heater floors were even more affordable than extending the boiler pipes, in addition to they work wondrously.
