Unlike hydronic systems which are typically used for whole-house heating, electric systems offer greater flexibly in terms of their ability to be added only to rooms where comfort and enjoyment are considered a premium, such as bathrooms, kitchens and family rooms.
Developed for installation under tile, stone, wood or carpet, electric radiant heating systems bring warm soothing luxury to bathroom floors and cold or unevenly heated kitchens and room additions.
How much does Electric Radiant Heating cost?
In bathrooms, most electric systems will cost about $300 to $900 with a thermostat control. In kitchens, where the heated area is typically larger, the cost may be around $900 to $1,500. In larger basements or family rooms, you may look at about $800 to $2,000 per room depending on square footage.
Who installs it?
WarmlyYours electric radiant heating systems are ultra-thin and can be installed by the DIY homeowner or floor covering professional. No special tools or prior installation experience is required. All you need is a WarmlyYours radiant roll and a simple thermostat control. Final electrical hook-up should be performed by a licensed electrician.
What are the electrical requirements?
An electric floor heating system for a small or medium size bathroom typically draws about 1 to 4 amps. In kitchens as well as large bathrooms, the amperage draw of your radiant system may get to 4-8 amps or more. We recommend connecting the radiant system to a dedicated 15-amp or 20-amp circuit (depending on your floor's amp draw). Setting up a new dedicated circuit is not complicated. Your local electrician can easily provide you with a new line in just 1 or 2 hours of work.
