I have looked into purchasing heated flooring for my apartment in Springfield, MO, the reason is that the winter season in Missouri is just brutal, then it is long plus lingers for months on end; October to May can be really freezing plus require the boiler to be on. I own a central boiler that does an okay task. The thing is, all the heat rises to my ceiling. The top floor feels warm however the bottom area is freezing. That is why I have to typically up my temperature control, wear slippers, plus I don’t feel warm enough; When you blast air, the warm particles are lighter than the cold, so the rise. There is nothing I can do about it. I have been toying with heated flooring since it uses electricity. There are electric heated mats under the floorboards! No heated air rises, it stays where you want it, then anything that touches the flooring feels warm as a result. It is silent, clean, plus energy smart. The only downside is that you need to completely redo your flooring to install this system. The current floor must be ripped up to the barebones. Then the cement board goes down, then the mats, plus then the current flooring. It will add quite an expense already to the hefty heating replacement bill. I am still pondering it though. I suppose I am going to call a Springfield heating business to see if they can supply me some price quotes. I want to know if it is possible for me or if it is too upscale.
