I recently got radiant heated floors and I personally love them! The radiant heated floors have made my house so warm and has saved me a ton of money on my monthly electric bills. But let me tell you a little something here…I have a dog that is like my best friend. And my dog however does not like my radiant heated floors. Everytime I have the radiant heated floors on he starts howling and jumping up on the sofa. I’m not sure if other pets are like this when it comes to radiant heated floors, but my dog simply doesn’t like them. I don’t know if cats may be any different because I do not have a cat and never have. However, I talked to a friend of mine who does have both a cat and radiant heated floors and he told me that sometimes his cat will hiss at him when he turns on the radiant heated floors. And other times the cat will purr and cuddle up in a ball on the floor and be so relaxed by the radiant heated floors. So it is kind of a toss up I guess. It all depends on the temperatures coming out of them I suppose. Regardless though, even my dog hates me for the rest of our lives, I will never get rid of or give up my radiant heated floors! They are the best thing i think I have invested in ever. Never in my life have I ever had a heating system so powerful yet cheap to run!
