And the heating for this plan is transferred through copper pipes under the floor.
Being a southern girl, it took myself and others a very long while to get accustomed to living in a region where there was just so much winter. And actually it’s not just how long it lasts however just how dang cold it gets. I grew up in a weird climate where I could pretty much go barefoot year round. Now, during the winter, that simply meant being barefoot in the house. But still, those winters were so mild plus nothing compared to what I’ve lived with now for 25 years. The Winter I deal with comes with about 5 months of chilly or worse temperatures. And that means there’s a lot of oil furnace heating happening in the house. Plus, I’ve never absolutely been into the outdoor activities that folks do around here. So, I’ve spent a lot of my winters inside the Heating and central A/C heating just trying to stay warm. Of course, I’ve enjoyed having unquestionably white and fluffy Christmases plus enjoyed raising youngsters up here. But I’m finally getting an opportunity to go barefoot during the Winter again. And no, the two of us aren’t rapidly moving south. But the two of us did build a home after selling the family home the two of us personally raised our children in. With the new house, the two of us opted to go with a newer geothermal heat pump which gets most of the heating plus cooling energy from deep in the earth. And the heating for this plan is transferred through copper pipes under the floor. This is simply called radiant floor heating. And yeah, you got it. I’m barefoot all the damn time in the home now plus it feels just as fantastic as it did when I was only a teenager.
