underfloor heat in a bathroom

Winter is coming, and that’s a great time to turn to those projects you’ve been putting off inside the home. If you’re remodeling your bathroom, remember to consider the energy-efficiency choices you could be making.

There are many options when remodeling a bathroom. For starters, homeowners need to think about their vanity, lighting, tub and shower. The flooring type is another choice homeowners need to make, in addition to making color choices and selecting the right grout to make the tile stand out. The homeowner usually spends hours deciding the color scheme they would like to go with, but they do not consider how to create an energy-efficient bathroom.

One way to make your bathroom more comfortable is to have a heating system installed under your bathroom flooring. There are many options for electric radiant heat and some you can pick up at your local home improvement store. So how do you know which product is best for you? Not all systems are the same. Most homeowner’s look at the lowest cost option of a floor heating system and that is a problem. Fast forward a couple of months after the system is turned on. The homeowner has a warm and comfortable floor, but they do not like the energy bill they receive.

Did their salesperson at the flooring store explain the energy-efficiency characteristics of the products they offer? Did they understand the thermal dynamics of losing heat to a colder subfloor or concrete slab? Did they explain the differences in thermostats? And do you even need one in a room heated by another heat source? The experts at HeatMyFloors.com can explain it all.

What if you had a choice to purchase a floor warming system that is almost three times more efficient than cable systems at delivering heat to your tile or laminate floors? What if you had a choice to have insulation under the floor warming system that would reduce heat loss, add comfort and reduce operating costs compared to other systems?

There are many choices to make when choosing an electric radiant floor heating system for your bathroom remodeling project. At HeatMyFloors.com we have the products and the experience to answer your questions that will provide an ideal and warm outcome.
