Cold floors are the first thing that everyone has to deal with in the morning after a great night of solid rest. Waking up and having to get out of a warm comfortable bed is a dread that everyone shares. For some with electric blankets, who never see or feel a cold bed, the thought of cold tile or wood is terrifying. A heated floor may not be the reason the snooze button isn’t hit a few more times, but it would help to provide an incentive to get up knowing that cold floors were a thing of the past.
Under floor heating has been around for a while and for the longest time it was only available to the wealthy due to the original cost of installation, taking care of it and then paying the extra expense to run it. Fortunately for the rest of us the price has dropped significantly since the first days of under floor heating and it has become a viable option that should definitely be considered.
While it is definitely still to be considered a luxury, floor heat, for those that live in places where it is cold a good part of the year should definitely consider the option. Obviously someone in Florida might not need to have it installed as much as someone located in Minnesota or any of the other northern locations in the world. Floor heating is definitely something to consider if stepping on cold floor, such as tile or wood is a fear one has to face every morning.
