When your kitchen is covered in dated ‘70s wallpaper and the appliances are a “trendy” avocado green, you know it’s time for a renovation. And when there’s carpeting instead of tile in your bathroom, you know it’s time to replace the flooring. But how do you know if your home is a good candidate for heated floors?

Planning for radiant heat

First off, it’s important to know that electric radiant heat can be installed in any home — whether you have an existing heating system in place or not. However, there are a few specific signs that can show you that one or more of your rooms is prime for radiant heat. WarmlyYours Radiant Heating has taken the liberty of identifying just four of these indicators.

1. Your home has a “cold spot.”

    This is an obvious sign, but also the most important one. Rooms that are especially cold can use some extra heat. In particular, homeowners often notice that basements and rooms located above the garage are colder than the rest of the house. By heating up the floors in these areas, you can eliminate cold spots from your home, making every room warm and comfortable. Bathrooms and kitchens also often feel colder than usual because they typically feature tile floors. Whether you’re stepping out of the shower or entertaining friends in the kitchen, heated floors will add a touch of luxury and comfort that’s second to none.

    2. You’re planning to replace the flooring in one of your rooms.

    If you’re planning to replace your flooring, this is the perfect time to install electric radiant heat. Heated rolls and cables must be installed underneath the flooring surface, so why not add some value when you’re ready to install new floors with radiant heat? WarmlyYours in-floor heating can be installed under a variety of flooring types, including hardwood, tile, laminate, carpet and more.

    Heating bills can be reduced with radiant heat.

    3. Your heating bills are high. Heating a house with a forced-air system isn’t cheap — especially when much of the heat escapes through the ductwork! To reduce your heating bills, you should consider heating one of your rooms with electric radiant heat.

    Radiant heat does not bother allergy sufferers.

    4. You’re prone to allergies.

Because forced-air systems are literally forcing air through ductwork in your home, they’re also distributing dust and other allergens throughout your home. Radiant heat, on the other hand, radiates heat from the floor up, silently and efficiently heating the room. That means no need to have Kleenex on hand!

If any of these signs apply to your home, you’re in need of some radiant heat!
