What Are the Costs for Floor Heating in a Laundry Room?

Heated laminate floors can add affordable comfort to your laundry room.

Like a pair of clean socks fresh from the dryer, in-floor radiant heat can bring the same soothing feeling of warmth to any room in your home — even your laundry room. When you're spending hours a day washing, drying, folding and ironing clothes, a heated floor can help you pass that time a lot more comfortably.

In-floor radiant heat from WarmlyYours Radiant Heating offers an affordable way to heat your laundry room. However, what if you want to save even more by installing laminate instead of tile or stone flooring in your laundry room? In that case, you'll want to purchase one of our Environ™ floor-heating products.

This floor plan features an Environ Flex Roll to heat the space.

In this case (see floor plan), the customer had a 120-square-foot laundry room with multiple closets, a utility sink, a washer and a dryer. The remaining 52.5 square feet of the room is covered with an Environ™ Flex Roll, which can be applied underneath carpet (in the United States only), laminate or floating wood floors.

The cost of heated floors

This 1.5- by 35-foot roll is affordably priced at less than $500. To be exact, the Environ™ Flex Roll costs $473, which comes out to only $9 a square foot. In addition to the heating roll, you'll need a thermostat to operate the system. A SmartStat™ thermostat costs $169, bringing your total to $642. That's less than the cost of your washer and dryer!

Furthermore, the cost to operate the system is lower than many people might realize. To run the system for 8.5 hours a day (which is the default setting on the thermostat), it would only cost you 22 cents a day, on average, to heat your laundry room floors. That's according to WarmlyYours' Daily Energy Use Calculator.

Imagine spreading the warmth of your dryer to the entire room with affordable electric heated floors.
