When we built the new house, we installed radiant heat. The hu-dad wanted to be able to walk across floors bare-footed in the winter. We think warm floors are a good idea, too.
Since we do not need air conditioning (it rarely hits 80F where we live), we knew we did not need duct work in the house. That led us to installing radiant heat, a system of water lines running underneath the floors. The water is heated in a boiler – the same system that provides us hot water throughout the house. The system keeps the house at a very even temperature with the distinct advantage that the floors are warm to the touch.
