Houston Skyline - Aerial ViewHouston is an expansive metropolis in Texas. In fact, the total area of Houston is so large, it could contain the cities of New York, Boston, and San Francisco at the same time. 

By contrast the city’s downtown area is relatively compact and includes the theater district, home to the renowned Houston Grand Opera, and the historic district, that creatively pairs 19th-century architecture with trendy restaurants in the area. 

While Houston has a mild and temperate climate, it’s more prone to extreme temperature variations than many similar southern cities. Even without these fluctuations, more and more homeowners in warmer climates are recognizing the unpleasant effects of a cold floor leading to an increase in popularity of underfloor heating to warm those cold surfaces up.
