When the people I was with and I first moved into our current condo I was so gleeful that the people I was with and I finally had our own fireplace. I had grown up in the city our entire life, so I never had the chance to sit by the fire and sip on some wine with our family appreciate they do in the movies… Due to the fact that I have little ones living with me, I forgot how much of a danger having a fireplace can entirely be. Just one false step for a little child and they could burn their hands or worse. My partner and I decided not to take the risk and call over an HVAC tech to take a look at our condo and tell us where to install a respected heating and cooling unit. After looking around the condo he recommended to us rather firmly that the people I was with and I go with radiant heated flooring instead of a heating and cooling unit. With the heated flooring, the people I was with and I wouldn’t have to worry about having a large and bulky equipment that the kids could run into while playing. Along with heated flooring being a safer option, they were also a much more affordable option in the long run; Over the years after the people I was with and I paid off the cost of the radiant floors, the people I was with and I would be saving a nice chunk of money each month on our energy bill! I am happy that the people I was with and I have the fireplace here for the aesthetic look and suppose when guests come over, although I am so happy the people I was with and I have some radiant floors now to keep us warm.
