Radiant Flooring Is Sexy

KayaRadiant flooring has been in use since the days of the Roman Empire when they channeled hot air under the floors of their villas. Basically, radiant systems heat an entire room evenly — not just in localized spots. It is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating because no energy is lost through ducts. Radiant systems are also unobtrusive and quiet.


But for homeowners who want to save energy, radiant floors are usually not worth the cost of installation. One exception is a hydronic (water) heating system used in conjunction with solar heating — this can be very efficient. More information can be found on the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) site.

So are radiant floors sexy? Well, Kaya who’s standing on one here, verifies that they are.

    What does a young woman with a tight T-Shirt and her pants unbuttoned have to do with heated floors?

    I know you guys are going for the new web design look and feel, and I’m not some puritan, but it just seems a little incongruous. Kind of like your trying a bit too hard now.

    YES, OK, THE ADD GETS YOUR ATTENTION. BUT UNFORTUNATLY IT IS EITHER THE FEMALE OR THE COUPLE THAT CHOOSE FLOORING. I’M SURE I’M NOT ALONE IN STATING THAT I WOULD NOT PURCHASE FROM YOU ON PRINCIPLE! IT SHOWS THAT YOU NO DOUBT ARE A PARK OF ARROGANTS.

    :) i agree with Kylie. I mean C’mon, a hot chick for flooring? gimme a break! all you’re going to get is a load of porn-addicted juvenile delinquents.
    Not the best route if you want some customers plus, i can see this and I’m 15. Already a better businessman than the “pro’s,” underage.
    sad days…..
    p.s. I found this site by looking up ‘central heating systems’ on google images. Yeah, I’m sure that is a heating system for some.

    Hey Justin-great site.
    Just visiting, I know I am rather late in responding to Kylie’s rabid response but as a flooring installer and part of the trade, she’s right. But that is ASSuming that Justine is conveying this info mainly to buyers. What about installers or sales professionals (that are usually male)?
    I think the girl is a great touch. Yes, and very cute.

    So , as an installer/sales /owner of my business, what can I do to stand out from the rest of the crowd? Perhaps Amb.. can help ….?.
