The Comfort and Convenience of Heated Floors
Radiant floor heating systems have become even more efficient and affordable to install in recent years. A variety of heating elemtents are available, and heated floors feature a programmable thermostat so you can program your heating system to accommodate your schedule. You can program the system to warm the floors moments before you wake up in the morning and shut off as you head to work. The systems can be programmed according to your schedule, operating only at times when you need. And each room or zone can be controlled separately by its own thermostat. Electric underfloor heating systems are virtually maintenance free and surprisingly easy to install.
Heated Bathroom Floors
While heated floors can be installed throughout your home, many homeowners opt to install radiant heat in select rooms to supplement the existing heating system. This is a wonderful way to transform your house into a dream home. Installing a radiant heated floor in bathrooms is particularly popular among homeowners. No longer will you have to endure stepping out of the shower and on to a cold tile floor. Radiant floor heat transforms your chilly bathroom to a warm oasis that no longer has to be avoided by bare feet.
There are two types of floor heating system technologies: electric and hydronic. Electric radiant floor heating systems are typically recommended for heating bathroom floors and other small rooms because they are so much easier to customize and install than hydronic systems. Electric heated floors feature a rapid response time, so your bathroom floor heats quickly, evenly and efficiently.
Heated Kitchen Floors
Another popular room to install a heated floor in is the kitchen; after all, most people spend considerable time in their kitchen, which is why it should be a comfortable, inviting room. Regardless of whether your kitchen floor is tile, vinyl tile, hardwood, or laminate, you can enjoy the benefits of radiant heat.
While most floor heating systems are installed in new construction jobs, homeowners also have the option of heating existing floors. The heating element and insulation can be installed in the floor joists below.
