Underfloor Heating for Pets – Keeping Fur Babies Warm
Cubby is always jumping in my lap. Rocky wants to curl up by your feet in a blanket. Tiger is shivering by the bed. Our fur babies suffer from the cold also. Most animals don’t want to wear little coats or sweaters. Some of them have nice thick coats that keep them relatively warm, but others don’t. Usually animals that stay indoors don’t develop the sort of coat that an outside animal will develop naturally for the winter. Our animals need to stay warm in the winter just like we do. Under floor hearting is one way to keep our pets warm.
How often do we see animals curled up by a vent trying to keep warm? With the usual duct type of heating system the heat rises toward the ceiling and stays there. The floors can still be very cold. Drafts from doors or poor insulation can cause the floor to be very chilly. Although people may feel the warmth because they are taller, the animals are down in the cold. Radiant floor heating warms the floors and then the heat will radiate upwards to warm the rest of the room. This will cause an even heat that will warm the entire room from floor to ceiling.
Pets can be very comfortable with under floor heating. They can curl up on any floor in any room of the house and be perfectly comfortable. This can include the tile or wood floors also. Radiant floor heating can easily be installed under any type of floor. The cabled mats have self adhesive strips on them that make them an easy do it yourself project for anyone. No special knowledge or tools are needed. The temperature can be specifically adjusted for each room so that the optimum comfort level can be achieved.
Our pets can be like our children and we want to make them happy and comfortable. Your pet will be so happy to have a warm place to lie. Take back your blanket and slippers. The dog will not be sleeping on them anymore if you install radiant floor heating. Watch your cat curl up happily on the warm floor. Our pets can also enjoy the benefits of this heating system as much as we do. This economical solution may be enjoyable for your pet, but you will also reap the benefits of a heating system that is clean efficient and durable for many years to come.
