So Long, Daylight Savings: Less Light Doesn’t Have to Mean Less Warmth
Daylight Saving Time (DST) was originally created to conserve energy and allow people to take full advantage of the summer's longer daylight hours. However, the practice of observing DST in the summer months comes at a price when it’s time to set the clocks back to standard time each fall. Though many enjoy the extra hour of sleep, the days feel shorter and colder with the sun setting earlier each afternoon.
Avoiding Trapped Heat
Many people ask us why we recommend keeping items off a floor where radiant heat is present. Items placed on top of the floor can trap radiant floor heat. This trapped heat can make the area much warmer than the surrounding areas. If you are not careful, in some cases, trapped heat can cause problems with the floor coverings and radiant heat system itself.
