Electric Radiant Floor Heating can provide heat and comfort to any room.
Floor Warming Systems do more than just warm tile they also contribute significant heat to the room and are an effective heat source providing serious BTUs into the room. Current insulation standards for most homes allow our electric floor warming systems to act as an effective heat source for most rooms. Radaint heat mats in your floor means less dependence on other heating methods and the associated lower energy costs.
Older homes with less insulation that have not yet been updated will not be as warm, but you already knew that! Which is why you are searching for more comfortable heat in your rooms.Upgrading your insulation regardless of your heat source will keep your home warmer and lower your heating cost too.
Floor Heating versus Baseboard heaters.
We have many customers who have replaced their Baseboard heaters and added floor warming. Electric Radiant heat Mats are a practical and viable alternative to electric baseboard heaters and floor heat is more comfortable too. The inherent practicality of floor heating is Zone Heating, which allows each living area (or even individual room) to have an independent temperature control (thermostat). By individually controlling the temperature of targeted areas, you can INCREASE COMFORT while DECREASING your energy use and cost. AND, you get the bonus of warm tile too.
