So you’re building your dream house…

Here is something you may want to consider before you start construction, A Radiant Floor Heating System also known as a Hydronic Floor Heating. I know it doesn’t sound as glamorous as a walk-in closet or a Sub Zero fridge but it’s an important part of your home. So let’s talk basements, think of your basement now and what you are currently using it for. Most people don’t use their basements for one of the following reasons:

1. Their basement is too cold so they don’t use the space
2. It has become a storage space

I can’t offer you a solution to reason #2, I do have a solution to the first reason; Hydronic floor heating system. By using PlastiSpan HD or PlastiSpan HD Hydronic Insulation as the insulation under the Hydronic Floor System your real benefit from the heating system. This reduces energy and improves the performance of the system. You can help create a comfortable living space and control your heating costs. Just think by adding Hydronic floor heating you could walk around barefoot in your basement and not have to wear winter clothes when you go down there. Think of how comfortable that would be.

By having a comfortable temperature and living space you don’t have to crank the heat to go downstairs, you don’t have to move to a bigger house as your kids get older and you don’t have to deal with your husband and all his friends sitting in your living room drinking and making a mess while the game is on, you could send them downstairs to the “man cave.”

I believe that using PlastiSpan HD or PlastiSpan HD Hydronic Insulation and installing Hydronic Floor Heating in your new home will be one of the best decisions you could make.

Let me know what you think of your basement after you install it, I’d love to hear about it!
