When my sibling told me I had to visit, I wondered what the big fuss was about.
I was just at his place the previous weekend and there was nothing special at his home it seemed.
I mean, I did like his fireplace a good deal, but his air quality was average and he didn’t have some kind of advanced media air cleaner or anything. Well, I was stunned when I stepped into his place. I asked what he did to make the heating so comfortable in the house, he asked if I was familiar with hydronic gas furnaces. I assumed he was using a boiler system, but there was no heating coming from radiators, it seemed the heating was coming right from the floors, they were so warm and toasty! I couldn’t help it, I had to pull off my shoes and socks and walk around barefoot on the floors. He said he would let that slide for now, but I would have to wear my socks in the future. He also had a fire going in the fireplace, so we all relaxed in the kitchen for a long time, but we had wine and played odd games like charades and pictionary. My sibling said that he missed hanging out like we used to in the past and he wanted to do this sort of thing more often. After experiencing those radiant floors, I told him I would be there all the time! It wasn’t just me either, his friends and our family were coming over to his condo all the time to hang out and catch up. My sibling has become kind of popular thanks to that new heater installation. I might have to get radiant floors installed at my place as well!
