Heating technology has changed

It's funny how heating technology has changed so much since the days that I'm familiar with growing up as a boy back in New England. I can remember living in an old Victorian style two story house in Franklin, Massachusetts and our house heating system was the old oil burner type Boilers. Our house was always cold in the winter time because we couldn't afford to keep our heaters running constantly because of the cost of oil those days. I could remember in the winter time our water pipes used to freeze and break because of the extreme cold temperatures in our city. I will never forget those times.

My, how heating technology for homes has changed since those days. It would have been nice for our family had this new Radiant Floor Heating technology been available back in the 60's and 70's. Using Translucent Pex Tubing installed under the floors, it helps to keep your home warm all year long. I hear this type of home heating is very affordable for most home owners and can save them a lot of money.

Our old house was using the old style iron radiators and many times, some of them just wouldn't work at all so our house would always stay cold. Trying to take a bath or hot shower was always difficult because we had to turn the water on for a long time to get hot water which would waste a lot of water in the process. By switching to Tankless Water Heaters we could have saved a lot of money on our water bill and be able to have instant hot water when we want to. Our old house has a lot of memories but some i would just like to forget.
