Based on the principle of the warm heat from the sun, radiant heat is a sustainable, healthy heat that is absorbed and is not prone to heat loss overheating. A Harvard University Study confirmed that physical warmth, caused by radiant heating, directly affects and improves emotional well being, while influencing positive behavior. Since WarmlyYours' products provide radiant warmth and comfort, we believe that our products can influence healthy, emotional warmth.
Not only does radiant heating improve emotional health, but it also increases energy efficiency. With the use of radiant heat as a primary heating source, temperature levels can be maintained, on an average of 5.6% lower than any other form of heating. That means, for every degree you lower your thermostat, you can save 5% off your current heating bill. That's 25-30% in annual savings.
Radiant heating systems have been an affordable source of luxury and warmth for many years; stretching back to the first system invented during the Roman Empire, and will continue to be for years to come. Nothing compares to the feeling of a warm floor, towel, and room on a cold morning or during those long, frozen winter nights.

There are a multitude of reasons why our business at WarmlyYours is based around our electric floor heating systems and many reasons more why electric floor heating may be the most beneficial choice for you.
Electric floor heating systems, such as ours, generate an even heat throughout your room and home and will not disturb dust – reducing noise levels, dry air, and possible allergic reactions.
The sheer ease of installation, along with the more attractive cost and non-existent maintenance fees make electric floor heating systems a natural choice over its water-based, or hydronic, counterparts in most cases.
The time it takes to heat the floor and room is also a reason why people may choose electric. Electric heating systems are placed above the sub-floor, just under the flooring material so that the heat can rise, usually within 30 to 60 minutes, this compares favorably to water-based alternatives which are often placed 1.5" or 2" into a cement slab and can take up to 7 hours to heat up when they are first turned ON.
Because of this, many people simply leave their water-based systems ON for months at a time, which consumes energy over a far longer period. This coupled with the thermostats that allow you to preset ON-OFF cycles to provide heat only when and where you need it makes electric systems the more energy efficient.
Other reasons that you may prefer to go electric:
