At One Week Bath Kansas City, we regularly install electric radiant heat floors during bathroom remodels. The rise in popularity of heated floors goes beyond the benefit of toasty toes when you step out of the shower in the morning…although we think that most of the time, that’s reason enough!
Radiant heat comes in three forms: air-heated radiant, water-heated radiant, and electric-heated radiant. All three forms can provide a cost savings to the consumer by creating efficient, long-lasting heat in the home.
Electric heating systems that are installed underneath the floor evenly distribute the heat into a mass of material that retains the heat longer than if you were to blow warm air into the room. So even after the thermostat is turned off, heat will continue to radiate off of the floor. While bathrooms are among the most popular rooms for using heated floors, they can be an energy saving upgrade for your entire house.
The nice thing about installing electric radiant heat is that there are no structural considerations other than the installation of a dedicated electrical circuit. We’ve used Warmly Yours electric radiant floor heating systems for years and have been consistently happy with their product, service, and responsiveness.
