Heating season

As we move into Fall, the temperature has dropped into the single digits. Of course Uruguay uses centigrade, so it's nothing like single digit weather in Michigan. But, even 40 degree weather feels cold without heat, so we were happy when the calefacción losa was turned on early this morning.

I guess you mean "calefacciòn por loza radiante". That's available in many buildings. Older ones use water, heated by means of burning fuel-oil, diesel-oil, or natural gas.

I've heard of "losa radiante electrica", which is based on electricity to produce heat. In that case, I guess electric heat pumps (cool/heat air conditioners) are more efficient.
