Bathroom Floor Heating

Electric bathroom floor heating is an effective and energy efficient way to heat your bathroom floor.  The extra warmth is like wrapping your feet in a cozy blanket!  During the colder months, electric bathroom floor heating adds warmth and comfort to your bathroom.  The warmth of bathroom floor heating after a shower, bath, and in the middle of the night feels so good.  A warm bathroom floor makes getting up in the morning so nice. 

Bathroom Floor Heating

These floor systems are also known as radiant heating floor systems.  Through a system of energized cables under the floor, heat is generated.  This heat is regulated by a wall thermostat.

Electric bathroom floor heating works with every floor type including tile, vinyl, hardwood, engineered wood, and floating laminate (Luxury Vinyl Flooring).  Porcelain and ceramic tile are widely regarded as the best choice for radiant floor heating.  These tiles are thin and conduct heat extremely well.  This reduces the energy and time needed to warm up your bathroom.  Tile also retains the heat longer than other types of flooring.  This increases your efficiency even more.

Bathrooms and kitchens are the two most popular rooms for electric radiant floor heating.  In a typical year, bathrooms will make up over half of all the projects that use floor heating systems.

Why Should I Install Bathroom Floor Heating?

Bathroom Floor HeatingThe number one reason to install electric floor heating under a new floor is the comfort.  A heated floor is literally luxury you can feel.  If you are remodeling your bathroom, radiant heating is definitely worth considering.  Although you will pay more for your floors, the energy savings, comfort level, and resale value will be worth it in the end.

Electric radiant floor heating is a luxurious experience that must be felt to be understood.  In a regular bathroom, you know that the moment you touch your toes on the tile a shiver will go up your spine. Turning up the furnace or laying down bathmats (so you don’t have to touch the floor) are only partially effective solutions to this problem.

Bathroom floor heating makes it so that the instant your feet meet the tile, stone, or laminate in your bathroom, they will feel a sensation of warmth.  And, because the radiant heat rises from the electric floor heating to warm the objects in the room, you won’t have to make a mad dash for the towel to warm your body.  You can enjoy your bathroom because electric radiant floor heating has turned a frigid space into a toasty and enjoyable room of relaxation.  Electric radiant bathroom floor heating gives you the comfort and luxury that you’re looking for at a very reasonable cost.

Is a Heated Bathroom Floor Expensive to Operate?

No, they do not cost a lot to use.  An electric bathroom floor heating system uses about the same amount of energy as a freezer.

Electric radiant floor heating has higher levels of energy efficiency than central air systems (HVAC).  It heats the people and objects in the room directly via infrared heat.  This requires substantial less energy than a mechanical system.

Is Electric Floor Heating Energy Efficient?

Yes!  Electric radiant floor heating is a very efficient way to provide heat.  Electric floor heating systems use electrical resistance to generate heat that is then radiated to the solid objects in a room.  This means much less wasted energy than in other forms of heating like forced air, because the solid objects heated by floor heating systems will retain their energy longer than hot air will.  Also, due to the nature of electric floor heating, most users report being comfortable at a lower air temperature setting than if they used a forced air system exclusively, which could translate into significant energy savings.

What is the Cost to Purchase and Install a Bathroom Floor Heating System?

There are basically 5 steps when installing a bathroom floor heating system.  These are:

  • Removing the existing floor.
  • Building permit. Some Cities require a Title 24.
  • Home run dedicated circuit (typically 20-40amp).
  • Installation of the bathroom floor heating system.
  • Installation of the new bathroom flooring.

Item one varies depending on what the existing flooring is and what it’s installed over (wood or concrete).  The second item depends on the city.  All require a permit.  Only some require Title 24.  Items three and four together are about $40 per square foot.  This number can vary either way depending on the work required to install the dedicated home run circuit.  Item 5 depends on the flooring you will be installing over the floor heating system.
