Heated flooring—often called radiant floor heating—can be installed many ways. The most popular method is to insert electric heating coils or water-heated tubing under the floorboards. This small project has huge ramifications for your comfort.
If you’ve ever had the delight of stepping onto a heated floor, you know that they heat differently than central heating systems. A central system blows warm air through vents. The heated air immediately rises, but then it falls again as it cools. This means that most of the warmth hovers at head level instead of foot level. On the other hand, heated floors warm the floors first, and then the heat radiates throughout the entire room. While the rest of the room gets toasty, the floors still retain their heat.
As you might guess, installing heated flooring is a valuable project that has several benefits, including the following:
- Comfort: Heated flooring is a luxury item that caters to your comfort. If your feet are warm, it’s much easier to warm the rest of you.
- Cost: This project may be much cheaper than you think; contact your local bathroom remodeler to get a quote. You save more money by installing radiant floor heating while you’re remodeling your floors, since the flooring will need to come up anyway.
- Choices: Many heated flooring systems allow you to adjust the temperature. Some even have timers that you can program to turn on and off during a specific time period so you aren’t wasting heat.
