Tiny homes are best known for travel, but an increasing number of people are moving to long-term tiny home living. If you decide to do this, you may look at different ways to upgrade your tiny home. One way to do that is to consider the flooring and keeping your tiny home comfortable during cold weather conditions. Radiant flooring may be the answer. Here are some things you should know before visiting your flooring sales representative.
When dealing with a tiny home, you are working with a lack of space. If heating is an issue, you may wonder how much space you can sacrifice for the heating system or space heaters. With radiant floor heating, you do not have to worry about taking up space. The radiant heating will take up no more room than your current flooring does. This means you lose no storage space and you still have the comfort of a warm floor and warm environment during the colder months. You also only need a small space for the dial to adjust the flooring temperature. The dial can be placed on a wall to avoid taking up unnecessary space in other parts of the home.
You may not think about your allergies when you think of radiant floor heating, but it is something to consider. When you use a regular heating system, you can release dust and allergy causing debris into the air. This is especially an issue in tiny home environments where the circulation may not be as far-reaching as in a traditional home space. With radiant flooring, you do not have to worry about this allergy issue. The flooring will not release allergens, dust, or debris, into the air.
You may be concerned with maintaining the flooring. The truth is, radiant flooring tends to be low maintenance. There are no filters or parts that need to be cleaned and maintained. You also don't need to worry about replacing parts or ongoing needs like screens. The flooring is kept away from the dust or other issues that can cause filter issues and replacements. This leaves you with heat and minimal maintenance to maintain that heat.
If you think radiant flooring may be a good idea for your long-term tiny home living situation, contact your local flooring sales representative. They can help you with installation questions and with fees. They can also help you with other flooring choices as alternatives and how to make your tiny home more comfortable from the floor up. Contact a company that has flooring sales for more information.Share
