The fees from the HVAC contractor were excessive

I would have been happy to install radiant heated floors, but that will use up more than half of my budget and there are more important things that I need to have done in the house

While I was remodeling my house, I decided to contact an HVAC contractor. I wanted to know how much money it would cost to add radiant heated floors to the house. The furnace needed to be replaced, so I thought it was the perfect time to upgrade to something new and exciting. My mom and dad have radiant heat in their home. It was a new upgrade a few years ago, when my mom and dad replaced all of their flooring. I love the way the floor is warm and the air is comfortable everywhere. With radiant heat, there are no hot or cold spots. It is a very effective and efficient way to heat your home. I met with the HVAC contractor about a week ago and we discussed all of the fees and the materials. The fees from the HVAC contractor were excessive and I quickly began to realize that radiant heat was not an affordable solution for my home. After viewing all of the different heating plans that are available for my home, I think the most cost effective solution is to simply replace the old gas furnace. I would have been happy to install radiant heated floors, but that will use up more than half of my budget and there are more important things that I need to have done in the house. Most of the plumbing in the kitchen needs to be replaced. That is a major expense and one thing that absolutely must be done before I can even think about moving into the house.
