According to ThermoSoft International, Inc., North American homeowners should not expect global warming to last through next winter. Instead, the manufacturer of electric radiant floor heat systems is warning that summer is the best time to install warm floors.
ThermoSoft's internal panel on comfort conservation warns that global warming cannot be expected to last through next winter and advises North Americans to utilize the summer months to install warm flooring. There is no better opportunity than the summer to set time aside and prepare for next winters inevitable arctic plunge into freezing temperatures.
Meteorologists have a difficult job predicting the daily weather accurately, much less what is going to happen next winter. ThermoSoft advises homeowners to never forget last winter's record freezing temperatures, treacherous icy roads, enormous snow accumulations and power outages. Since weather history tends to repeat itself, albeit cyclically, installing radiant floor heat in the summer is a prudent measure to prepare the home for optimal comfort in the winter.
As an added benefit, not only will comfort be conserved with warm floors, energy usage will be conserved as well. A little known fact is that radiant heating reduces building heat load by 25-35% compared to convection heating according to the American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers. Moreover, with radiant floor heat there is no heat lost in the ductwork which can amount up to 35% according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
Radiant warm floors are best installed in summer when tile and wood flooring materials can be trimmed outside and when mortar for setting tile can be mixed outside, sparing the indoor air environment from dust and airborne particulates. What's more, ThermoSoft is offering off-season discounts to promote summer installations of radiant floor heat and to contribute to the global comfort conservation effort.
The Rockaway Valley Railroad, which delivered to Whitehouse Station, New Jersey, was shut down in 1913 primarily because it was poorly financed and served no large cities. It only ran to the outskirts of one medium sized town and had no significant industry along its route.
ThermoSoft, on the other hand, is well financed, and serves both large and small cities with its radiant floor heating. Not being limited to the railway system, Thermosoft ships its underfloor heating from its 50,000 square foot facility daily to all places, remote and otherwise, in North America. Franko Construction found this out, when they needed to complete a bathroom remodel and their client desired a warm floor for their bathroom. Franko was able to order their radiant floor heating and have it shipped the same day to the location of their choosing. There was no need for Franko to travel miles to one of the "big boxes" - and there was no need for Franko to seek out a product that was made in a foreign land. U.S.A. manufacturer of underfloor heating - ThermoSoft International - was able to satisfy all of Franko's needs, including answering any questions regarding installation of the floor heating system, as well as designing a layout for Franko so that he ordered the right amount of floor heating mats. A small contractor like Franko can really make a name for themselves in a community like Whitehouse, New Jersey, where the news travels fast...and boy does the news of warm floors on a cold winter night travel quickly!
The headlines tell us that Ukraine fears imminent invasion, that Russian spy ships were detected off the coast of Florida, that this could be the start of World War III. The good news is that it's not too late to experience the soothing comfort and joy of Thermosoft's electric radiant floor heating.
In times of crisis, whether real as in the case of Ukraine or imagined as in global warming, people begin to think about doing the important things in life. Whether it's telling someone they are loved, forgiving past transgressions or installing warm floors, it's never too late to do what's right for country, family and the environment.
The soothing comfort of electric radiant floor heat is definitely a "must do" experience. Stepping barefoot on a warm tile, laminate or wood floor is comparable to a walk on the beach. Warmth radiating from floor to head level is not only comforting, it is energy efficient. 100% of the energy expended with electric underfloor heating is utilized to warm the floor. No energy is wasted in the ductwork or rising to the ceiling as with convection heating systems. Moreover, individual rooms can be thermostatically controlled based on different times of use and temperature requirements.
Since floor heat radiates healthy warmth like the sun and is not blown in like a nor'easter, there are no chilly drafts blowing dust, dirt and allergens around the home. Warm floors create a calm, quiet, draft-free sanctuary where families can escape the cares of the world while re-energizing for the day.
More good news is that Thermosoft's facilities have not been appropriated for conversion to wartime armaments production. Thermosoft's 50,000 square foot, fully integrated, manufacturing facility is still dedicated to the production of high quality, low cost, electric radiant floor heating systems. There is no better time to install a healthy, comforting, warm floor than right now as the brutal winter reluctantly releases its grasp or as preparation for next year's inevitable arctic blast.
