I went cabin to our parents’ apartment while I was on Winter chop from college, and immediately I noticed something different about the apartment I grew up in. First of all, the whole apartment felt warm and cozy. That might not seem so different to you, however the whole time I was growing up in that apartment it was always drafty and freezing and I was always begging our parents to let me turn the thermostat up a few degrees so the heating would kick on. Either that, or I’d try to get them to let me turn on the gas fireplace in the residing room. Anyway, the apartment was also freezing and even when our friends would come over, they would comment on how frigid it was and ask to borrow slippers and a jacket if they were sleeping over. But when I got cabin to our parents’ apartment for Christmas vacation, the whole apartment was just toasty warm and it felt downright cozy and hospitable! I didn’t even believe like I needed to wear a jacket or slippers! I asked our Dad what the deal was and she told me that she and our dad had decided to have modern floors put in the family room, the study room, the hallways, and the residing room on the first floor. When they were talking about remodeling the floors, someone talked to them about radiant heated flooring and they decided, on a whim, to just go ahead and get radiant heated flooring installed too! They decided they would just kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. I told them that I noticed the difference in the house’s heating plan immediately! I just wish they had put in radiant heated flooring when I was still residing there full time!
