How many of your ancestors endured cold cabin floors and would have been oh-so-happy to have warm floors with radiant floor insulation? I know many of mine would have!
Some of my Moline family lived in cold and snowy (part of the year) Sweden before coming to the United States. And where did they settle? They were first in Minnesota and then moved on to a somewhat warmer climate in western Washington. I say ‘somewhat’ because the Nordgrens lived in Bellingham, one of the coldest places in the Puget Sound area.
As it so happens, we will be remodeling our family room pretty soon and one of the things we plan to do is add a radiant barrier to three of the walls. While this is a sponsored post, I honestly do intend to look into foil insulation because it’s eco-friendly, and not harmful to install, and cost effective.
The room is located on the south and west sides of our house and even if we did those two walls we would come out ahead. The other wall is shared with the unheated garage, and so that would work great in that application too. EcoFoil has many installation manuals you can consult, as well as a McAfee secure site for worry-free ordering.
