I hope they're good

I just ordered one for my water closet. Hope it warms the floor up. I should have put in-floor radiant heating, but didn't even think of it.

Uh, I dunno

Why don't we deal direct? I guess it is because I don't have time to research who is best and reputable. It is the one part of the project I want to have no part in the installation at all. I want...
