Hi, I'm Kerilyn from WamlyYours. I'm going to talk to you a bit today about getting pricing for your electric floor heating system. When pricing a project, it is important to remember that you don't need to heat the entire floor since you only warm where you walk. Understanding your heated coverage is important when pricing a system. Let's first look at a few room examples to see how this works.
Here is a bathroom that is 70 square feet measured from wall to wall. Remember, since you only heat the areas where you walk, you won't install floor heating under the vanity, toilet, tub, shower or other fixtures located in the bathroom. In this example, you will only be adding 35 square feet of flooring shown here in green, which is only half the overall room size.
Next, let's look at a kitchen that is 120 square feet when measured from wall to wall. Once again, because of the areas occupied by the cabinets, the island and other fixtures in the room that will not be heated, this room only requires 70 square feet of electric floor heating for the heated area. Even in the family room, you typically don't heat the entire floor. This living room is 150 square feet when measured from wall to wall. The floor heating system is installed about 4 inches to 1 foot away from each wall, so in this family room, you actually might only need 120 square feet of electric floor heating.
Now let's look at a few pricing examples to get an idea of the cost of a typical floor heating system. For an average sized bathroom, a floor heating system will cost between $400 and $800. An average kitchen will run between $800 and $1500. You can use these estimates to help qualify customers that are interested in adding floor heating to their project.
Now let's find out how you can get more exact pricing for your next electric floor heating project and give your customers an exact quote. There are several ways to get pricing. The first one is to use our quick estimate tool available at warmlyyours.com.
