I appreciate everything about our radiant floors except that they don’t make noise. I blame our old furnace for that though. My furnace method was dying for years. It let me assume by making a loud grinding noise all night long. When the oil furnace turned on it made a genuinely distinctive click. Now that I have heated flooring, there is no sound. No air is actually being blown. Hot water is heated by a boiler & the water flows through pipes in the floor. This doesn’t make sound & would never make a noise. This should be a positive thing. I am so used to noise that I can’t sleep anymore. I hear every creak & crack in the house. I am entirely terrified of someone chopping in now. Any little sound has me wide awake. I wish our radiant flooring would at least make a humming noise. I don’t even assume when it is on either. I frequently forget I turned on the heating equipment. I will then walk around perspiring to death & complaining. Then I realize I left the hydronic heating on & that our bills are going to be so high. There is no loud click to tell me it went on or off. I need to do this manually & remember. I am hoping that I will adjust to our newer & much more efficient heater. I need to have a method of turning on & off the machine. I also need something to make noise in the lake house so I can get a great night of rest.
