Last week I brought up an interesting concept for those building or remodeling a home: instead of ‘looking for’ or ‘finding’ comfort in the home after it is built, instead think about making proactive choices during the building or remodeling process to ensure the comfort is there from the beginning.
Think about all the areas in a home where you can ‘build in’ comfort. And I don’t just mean radiant floor heating. Think about a window seat in a four-season porch where the sun can wash you with warmth on a spring or fall day. Or maybe add warming lights to your bathrooms to bring that extra level of comfort when stepping out of the shower (and onto your warm radiant floors).
Now, comfort, as Ingrid pointed out, has many definitions. Some are nouns. Others are verbs. When you think about ‘peace of mind’, do you think ‘comfort’? Have you ever thought about the plumbing system behind your walls? Have you ever known someone that has experienced problems with their plumbing systems? What about safety? Have you ever known someone that has experienced the devastation of a home fire?
Being proactive by installing a reliable plumbing system that incorporates an integrated fire sprinkler system is the ultimate comfort for your mind. Combined plumbing and fire sprinkler systems (called multipurpose systems) are becoming the smart choice for consumers that want to upgrade their homes with safety and peace of mind. Yes, that’s right, I said upgrade. Think about all your priceless possessions in your home — especially your loved ones — and think about any other product you can add to your home that could actually save them from devastation. There are few.
It’s something people in the home-building process should start thinking about. It’s the ultimate comfort. It’s peace of mind.
