Welcoming Guests with a Radiant Heated Bathroom
For these Ft. Wayne homeowners, adding radiant floor heat to their guest bathroom was an affordable and efficient way for them to bring the welcoming warmth and comfort of heated floors to their visiting family and friends. To warm their new laminate floors, they installed WarmlyYours Environ Flex Rolls in their 24-square-foot bathroom for $228.00 at a cost $9.50 per square foot (floor plan layout below).
Now that we’ve shown you the reasonable cost of materials, check out how affordable the operating cost is as well. WarmlyYours’s Operating Cost Calculator shows it only costs 12 cents a day to heat this bathroom for four hours and according to our Heat Loss Calculations, it costs approximately $23.00 to heat the bathroom during the coldest month of the year. Overall, it’s a very economical way to add the comfort and luxury of a radiantly heated bathroom with soothing warm floors while upgrading your home at the same time.
When remodeling your bathroom, you may want to consider adding a towel warmer, LED Mirror or mirror defogger to create your own in-home spa. There are even shower floor and bench mat heating systems to complete the effect.
Selecting a Control to Suit Your Schedule
It’s even easier to match your floor heating schedule to your lifestyle with the newly introduced nSpiration series of thermostats from WarmlyYours that offer a full range of controls. There are a wide variety of options; from the nSpire Touch WiFi thermostat that is fully programmable with WiFi enabled remote control to the nHance thermostat that is reasonably priced and features an easy to read backlit display.
All the programmable models make it easy for the user to customize their comfort. The nSpire Touch is one of the most popular thermostats with a 3.5” color touch screen programmable up to seven days. It allows you maximum control over the floor temperature with 4 programmable events for each day of the week, which is well suited for households where there will be frequent adjustments to the temperature or thermostat’s schedule. For those homeowners who want a more basic thermostat, there is the nTrust non-programmable thermostat that will let you simply set it and forget it.
