They had an immense boiler in the basement that provided radiant heating throughout the house
The older I become, the more I see life coming sort of full circle when it comes to most things. There seems like just 1 immense circle running through our life. So various seasoned things are quickly made new again. That is certainly true when it comes to our Heating & A/C heating method. Recently, Bob and I just built a new beachside house that has 1 floor & just many study rooms. We’re in our early 60s so it’s time to simplify as much as both of us can. Our new home was a custom made job that both of us helped design. And Bob chose a geothermal heat pump for our heating & cooling needs. This style of Heating & A/C machine uses the nearly constant temps of the earth in order to extract energy for heating & cooling. It’s pretty fascinating as far as a heating & cooling units go. The other nice thing is that it lasts for nearly 40 years. So this heating pump will be the last 1 both of us have to put in; Bob & I also like the sustainability aspect as it’s just about the most efficient residential Heating & A/C. However, it is the Heating & A/C heating unit that absolutely blows our mind. With the geo heat pump, heating energy is transferred through radiant heated floors. That comes from copper pipes underneath the flooring. It takes myself and Bob back to when I was a little girl & would visit our Grandparents. They had an immense boiler in the basement that provided radiant heating throughout the house. It was the coziest heat I’ve ever experienced. And now all these years later, I’m experiencing that same sort of cozy radiant heating once again, but like I said, it just seems like circles over & over in our lifetime.
