Why Install Radiant Heated Floors?


  • Comfort The number one reason to install radiant heating under a new floor is absolutely the comfort, a heated floor is literally luxury you can feel but you probably already knew that.
  • Clean Radiant floor heating is a very clean heat since it doesn’t rely on forced air, which can circulate dust and other allergens.
  • Safe All of our electric floor heating products have been rigorously tested and are cULus or cCSAus listed.
  • Forced Air Alternative Floor heating isn’t loud like a central furnace, doesn’t dry out the air, and requires no regular maintenance.
  • Affordable Electric floor heating is inexpensive if you put it in while you’re already replacing or installing a floor. In fact, the cost for the system itself is as low as $5 per square foot. Unlike hydronic systems, an electric in-floor heating system doesn't require expensive pumps or water heaters.
  • Saves Energy Radiant heating has higher levels of energy efficiency than central air systems because it heats the people and objects in the room directly via infrared heat. It is also inexpensive to operate, you can heat a typical bathroom for pennies a day. For more information see Are Radiant Heat Floors Energy Efficient?
  • Flexible Can be used as your primary heat source or as a way to add supplemental heat to rooms that are tricky to heat like the basement or a room above a garage.
  • Easy-to-Use Thermostats The secret to any great heating system is a great control and we've got an entire line of them.

Are Radiant Heat Floors Energy Efficient?


The answer is yes, floor warming is a very efficient way to provide heat. Electric underfloor heating cables 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 a radiant source will retain their energy longer than hot air will.


However, while floor heating systems like ours are very cost effective, they still use electricity. The operating cost for your radiant heating system will depend on a few things like the size of your system, the temperature you're trying to achieve, and the cost of electricity in your area.


We've put this handy cost calculator together for you to find out how much electric heating floors would cost to run in your area.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Electric Floor Heating

For nearly 20 years, we've been fielding questions about radiant heating systems. Here's some answers to some of the most common questions we get about floor heating.

How does electric in-floor heating work?

These systems work by having an electric heating cable installed underneath the flooring (embedded or floating, depending on the system and floor type), which is then wired to a special thermostat (either one specifically designed for floor heating, like a WarmlyYours’ nSpiration Series control, or a third-party thermostat). When turned on, the heating cable emits heat upward through the flooring which is then radiated throughout the room, heating all solid surfaces.

Do I have to replace my floor to install a radiant floor heating system?

Yes. While there are some systems that can be installed beneath floor joists, most radiant heating systems will need to be installed beneath the floor itself. This is why the best time to install floor heating is during a remodel or as a part of a new construction, when a floor is being installed anyways.

If you're interested in alternative radiant heating methods, check out our Radiant Panels, which are wall-mounted and use infrared technology to provide supplemental heating.

Can I use a floor heating system as a primary heat source?

Yes, in most cases, a floor heating system can be effective as a primary heat source. However, our TempZone™ and Environ™ systems are most commonly used as a secondary heat source, providing floor-to-ceiling radiant heat to any room in your home where you desire more warmth and comfort. Learn more about this topic in this post.

What type of flooring can I install along with an electric floor heating system?

At WarmlyYours, we offer a heating system for practically every flooring type. Our TempZone™ product line is most commonly installed under tile, stone, and marble flooring, but can also be installed under many other popular floor covering options such as hardwood, vinyl and linoleum. We also have our Environ system, which is an electric floor heating product as well and is specially designed for installation under carpet (in the U.S. only), laminate and floating wood. We also have our Slab Heating product line, which is embedded within finished concrete floors.

What temperature will my heated floor reach?

The temperature of your floor can range anywhere between 75°F to 95°F. The floor's actual temperature will depend on a number of factors including the amount of heat loss that the room experiences as well as the room’s configuration. WarmlyYours floor heating thermostats come with floor sensors which will allow you to monitor and control your system based on the floor temperature.

How does electric floor heating compare to central or forced air heating?

Electric floor heating is more energy efficient, less prone to spreading dust and allergens, and easier to control from room to room. Air-based heating systems can be used for both heating and cooling and requires regular maintenance.

For a more in-depth answer to this question, check out this blog.

Will the installation of an electric floor heating system affect the height of my floor?

The TempZone™ twin conductor cable present in our TempZone™ products is comprised of a double-insulated, coaxial heating cable. The total thickness of the system can be between ⅛” and 5/32” thick and it's typically embedded in about 3/8” of thinset or self-leveling cement, so it will not noticeably affect the height of your installed flooring. For Environ and Slab Heating systems, the height increase will be even less noticeable.

Is electric floor heating safe? What about EMF?

Our floor heating systems have withstood rigorous safety testing and earned the UL (or CSA) listing for the United States and Canada. They produce much less EMF than common household appliances like your TV or vacuum cleaner. The EPRI (Electric Power Research Institute) tests all electrical devices and publishes the data. Many common household appliances are tested at a distance of 6 inches. The test results indicate that on average, the EMF emitted for the following appliances, measured in Milligauss (mG) units, is:

Vacuum Cleaner: 300 mG

Microwave: 200 mG

Portable Heater: 100 mG

Dishwasher: 20 mG

Washing Machine: 20 mG

WarmlyYours TempZone™ (Twin): 1.8 mG

What’s the difference between hydronic (heated water tubing) and electric floor heating?

Hydronic systems operate by using heated water pumped through tubing beneath the floor. Electric underfloor heating works with heated cables beneath the floor. Typically, hydronic systems are a good choice for new construction projects and electric systems are better for remodels or single rooms. This is because the high installation costs of hydronic systems (boilers, pumps, etc.) makes them cost-prohibitive for projects like a bathroom or kitchen.

For a more complete answer to this question, check out this blogpost.

What happens if I accidentally cut a floor heating wire during the installation?

Stop installation, box out a 3”×3” area surrounding the damaged area and call tech support at (800) 875-5285.

How quickly can I get the floor heating system after I order?

In-stock items will ship the same day if you place your order before 4:00 PM CST.

How can I determine what the materials and costs will be for my floor heating project?

You can use the Radiant Heating Cost Calculator, which gives you many options for your floor heating coverage. Use this interactive tool online and receive an instant quotation with product recommendations, rough-in and installation kits, cost of your control, etc. Or you can contact us.

What is the WarmlyYours return policy?

WarmlyYours has an open return policy which means there are no time limits and no restocking fees. If we still sell the product and it’s in resalable condition, you may return it at any time—even years later. We know that life doesn’t always run according to an ideal schedule, and at WarmlyYours, you come first.

Electric Floor Heating Rated 5 / 5 based on 5 reviews.
Slab Heat Cables
, Poughkeepsie, NY

The product is as advertised. We are 1 year in and could not be happier. The install was not difficult, and it is a dream in the winter. We keep the temp around 75 (you don't need 80+) and it is heaven to walk into the bathroom (Ok, we keep the house at 68 in the winter). I ended up installing the flex roll and then putting leveler mud on top and then tiled. Just perfect!

Worked Without a Hitch
, PITTSBURGH, PA

This is a fine product. Worked without a hitch.

Everything we hoped it would be
, Akron, OH

The warm floor in the morning is everything we hoped it would be. It makes walking on the ceramic tile so nice. The thermostat works so easily. Programmed when we are gone and warms it up before sleep and early morning. We love it.

TempZone cable is an excellent, durable heating cable
, JOHNSON CITY, NY

TempZone cable is an excellent, durable heating cable, possibly the stoutest I've worked with. The pricing structure is highly competitive, and in my case, beneath comparable products from at least two other companies.The product range is wide with many options displayed clearly and in an easy to reach modern website complete with shopping carts with log-ins, chat support, sales service. I was amazed at the level of detail applied in an architectural drawing, available as a free service, by the Tech Department. The supplied drawing had icon and color coded start / stop locations, the accurate measurements helped the install breeze by. The cable was well packaged, and shipped a day sooner than expected. I also received follow up service after the install by my representative.

Great product!
, SOUTH JORDAN, UT

Great product. I am now a fan of radiant flooring. We used this for a room on the bottom floor of our 3 story town-home which used to be 10 degrees or so colder then the upper levels. This product is a great energy efficient way to keep a room at the desired temperature. Fairly easy to install and setup. Installation videos were helpful.

Good stuff!
, CLINTON, CT

Very easy to DYI. The instructions and the videos on the website were extremely helpful. The product works great. Nice even heat distribution. I keep the floor temp same as room temp. Big difference in comfort level. Good stuff!
