When the people I was with and I bought our home, I was drawn to the radiant heated flooring, however i had often thought about having it installed in our old home, however it wasn’t just lavish, however the people I was with and I didn’t have the floor space for the hot water pipes. When the people I was with and I saw this house, I could not resist buying it! My hubby wanted to look at a few more houses, even though I insisted. I knew what I wanted, and this house had it. There was radiant heated flooring throughout the house. It took less than 6 weeks before I realized that radiant heated flooring wasn’t as superb as I thought it would beâ€¦ Not only were the floors heated, however so was every surface in the house, anything that touched the flooring was heated. The study room was the worst of all. The floors were heated, and that heat went up through the counter and heated my countertops; which happened to be marble. Marble countertops were supposed to stay cool to make for easier dough rolling. The dough would stay cooler and make for a better pie crust or bread. I did a lot of baking for the school, church, and for special occasions. I didn’t want my marble countertops heated. I asked my hubby if there was someway the people I was with and I could turn off the heat in the study room and in the study room, but he said he was wondering how long it was going to take before I tired of the oil furnace. It took less than an hour for him to call the Heating and A/C contractor and make an appointment for them to turn off the heating in the study room and study room.
