Now that it’s cold outside, no one wants to get out of bed in the morning. It’s dark, chilly, and you’re still half-asleep. Not the best condition to face the day in, but even so, you need get yourself moving. So, what’s one solution? Hop in the shower to give yourself some zoom for the day ahead. But cold tile floors in the bathroom would probably put a damper on that idea. Have you thought about installing heated hardwood flooring instead?
First of all, these floors are highly durable and can last you upwards of thirty years. What’s the secret to their longevity? Proper care and maintenance. Thirty years is a long time by any stretch of the imagination, especially when it comes to owning a home.
Lower Energy Costs
Turning the thermostat up and down as you adjust interior temperatures can cause wild changes in your energy bills. With your heated hardwood floors in place, you won’t have to change the temperature. Warmer floors can also do wonders when it comes to decreasing the number of allergens in your home, and even after the season’s first frost, allergies haven’t gone away entirely just yet.
Integration with Controls
Another benefit of adding heated hardwood flooring is that you can easily integrate it with thermostat controls. Whatever else you do, you should consult the instruction manual to see how you should properly establish this new system. Different versions of this function will have different settings, so you should make sure you are as familiar with them as you can.
Safe for All Feet
As we have alluded to above, the heat is enough to be pleasant, but it isn’t so high that it will leave burns. When your family includes young children and old relatives, the heat to skin contact can be something of a concern. But your new heated hardwood floors are safe for all feet.
Increases Home Value
We leave you with one final thought about these hardwood floors: did you know they can increase your home’s value?
