I think one of the hardest parts of living in this era of technology is learning how to feel confident in my choices.
With so many options for cars, appliances, smart phones and more, it’s hard to feel like I’ve made the right decision! Currently, I’m plagued with a challenging decision to make regarding the heating system I’ll have installed this year.
Since my old radiator broke down for good last winter, I’ve been putting off getting the new heating system for months. Sure, it’s summer time now – but it will get cold soon, and I can’t wait that long to make the call! I know I could just get a newer radiator model that’s less of a burn hazard, but there’s other tempting options out there. One option I really like is the prospect of having radiant heated floors in my house! Radiant heated floors would effectively remove any cold spots, drafts or other “dead zones” where the heating system can’t warm the house. That’s what I hated about my radiator system, as it would heat my home in a radial pattern. What I mean is, the radiator’s effectiveness would drop off as the heat dispersed through the house. Plus, radiant heated floors won’t quickly warm up a house, especially when it’s below freezing out! I would have to have a secondary heating system to supplement extra heat, and that just seems like a waste to have two separate heating systems in the house. I think I’m just going to get a new gas furnace installed, so that way I can have both central air conditioning and central heating!
