I guess we’ve all seen those crazy people who run into the frigid water and bounce around and say they have done the Polar Bear plunge. They are crazy because they pay for the privilege to freeze. I hate to walk across a cold floor in the middle of winter, why would I jump into water that had to have the ice broke, to get into it. It seems to me that you would go numb, instantly, but then I wouldn’t even try it. I have carpet on the floor in the winter, and I begged for radiant floor heating for five years. I wanted to step onto warm and toasty floors and feel the heat go through me. Maybe I’m a wuss, but every time I put my feet onto that warm floor, I feel like I am living in the lap of luxury. I have told everyone I know about my radiant floor heating. Most of them think I am crazy, because I say that it is like living in a kidskin glove . The air is almost like soft, and the heat is total. I love my radiant floor heating, and I know I almost didn’t get it. When my husband saw the cost, he really waffled with the decision. Since he has seen how well the house is heated, and much less expensive it is to operate than a traditional furnace, he has become a total convert. We even have zone control and we can regulate the heat in all of the rooms. He now wishes we had put in the radiant floor heating years ago.
