After moving to the country, I realized that life would be extremely different than I imagined. I think I thought that life in the country would be like a fairy tale with singing birds and beautiful sunny days. I honestly never thought about what winter would bring. The first year in the house I was cold and the temperatures were frigid. The furnace didn’t work well and I had cold spots all over the house. I had to buy a couple of space heaters to keep the place warm and I spent a fortune to run the gas furnace. The following spring, I decided to make some changes to the heating equipment. I decided that radiant heated flooring would be a great choice for my small cottage. I talked to an HVAC contractor about the job and I got a couple of different estaintes. I thought I could handle the radiant heated flooring installation on my own, but I didn’t want to spend three weeks trying to complete the heating job. I found an HVAC contractor with excellent prices and reviews and hired the guy to assist. Honestly, the contractor did most of the work while I stood around and supervised. After the radiant heated floor was installed, I never had another cold winter in my cottage. I’ve had a few problems with the heated flooring here and there, but it was one of the best investments that I made in the house. I bought the place with renovations necessary in every room and now almost every repair has been finished..
