The Low Cost of ‘Easy’ Floor Heating in a Small Bathroom

Master bathroom with walk-in shower and heated tile floors

When it comes to our day-to-day lives, "convenience" seems to be at the top of everyone's list. We want solutions that are going to make our lives easier and more comfortable.

Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer or an experienced trade professional, WarmlyYours offers convenient solutions to make your home as cozy and comfortable as can be. Case in point: How do you conveniently heat a small bathroom? Environ™ Easy Mats allow you to roll out a floor-heating mat right under laminate or floating wood without any cutting or turning. They can also be installed under carpeting in the United States. These mats are ideal for heating specific areas of a room, when you don't necessarily need 100 percent coverage. For instance, you can heat the part of a living room where you spend the most time, or you can heat the area in front of your bathroom sink where you stand the most.

The cost of convenience

This small bathroom can be heated with a floor mat that costs less than $200.In this case (see floor plan), Environ™ Easy Mats were able to cover more than half of a small bathroom, warming the floor in front of the sink and toilet. In total, the bathroom consists of 42.5 square feet, 25.5 of which is eligible for floor heating. One Environ™ Easy Mat was able to cover 16 square feet of this space. To install it, the homeowner simply needed to roll out the mat where the heat was needed and install the laminate flooring over it. This ease and convenience should suit any DIYer's needs; however, what's even more impressive is that the mat cost less than $200! The price of the 2- by 8-foot mat alone is $160. That's only $10 per square foot! Add a SmartStat™ thermostat and the total price is still low at $329. Furthermore, the cost to operate the system is incredibly low. To run the system for 4 hours a day, it would only cost you 3 cents a day*, on average, to heat your bathroom floors. That's according to WarmlyYours' Daily Energy Use Calculator. Just imagine feeling the warmth underneath your feet every morning for just pennies a day!
