Are your entry floors wet and slippery from kids and adults tracking ice and snow in from the out side. If your basement under the entry floor is open you can install electric heat in the floor joist area.
Install an electric heat thermostat on the entry wall then install the electric heater in the floor joist under the entry and wire it into the electrical panel.
(Use a 220-volt heater) Set the thermostat about 5 degrees above the room temperature this will dry the floor out and dry the boots and shoes.
If you set the temp higher you only waist electricity.
