I have radiant heated floors in my home and they are pretty great.
I am very happy with them.
However, when there was an issue recently and I had to call the local heating and air conditioning company to send out a certified heat and a/c specialist to repair the radiant heated floors, this was where it became a hassle. It turns out that if you have radiant heated floors and need them repaired, you are going to be paying a lot more than you would for standard heating and air conditioning system repair. This was something I was not expecting. I got my radiant heated floors fixed, but the cost gave a big hit to my bank account. I wasn’t sure if it was just the local heating and air conditioning company overcharging at first. So I took to the internet and did some research to see. And as it turns out, they charged exactly what they should of. The repair and maintaining of radiant heated floors is where the catch is with having these things in your home. Do not get me wrong, I don’t regret having radiant heated floors because they have saved me money on energy use really well, plus they really heat my home good. But I just wasn’t expecting to pay this much for radiant heated floor repair if they ever had an issue and stopped working. In the future I will be ready for this and at least know the price if my radiant heated floors ever break again.
