If there’s one thing that floor heating is, it’s luxurious. It would be difficult to find someone who is unimpressed by the comfort of a heated floor. That’s because heated floors are known for their upscale appeal. There’s something about heat radiating upward through tile, stone or hardwood floors that produces that “wow” factor that furniture and décor just can’t replicate.
Of course heated floors are more than just an upscale heating option. They earned their “high-end” reputation because of their discreet ability to operate efficiently and effectively under nearly any flooring surface. Compared with alternative systems that boast unsightly vents or radiators in order to transmit heat, radiant floor heating is invisible and more efficient because it offers no escape route for hot air leakage. Ductwork, for instance, is prone to leakage.
Because in-floor heating is so efficient and such a luxurious way to deliver heat, many homeowners take interest in heated floors when they’re ready to replace (or install for the first time) the flooring in one of their rooms — the bathroom, in particular. However, when homeowners start shopping, they may be surprised to learn how affordable these “high-end” in-floor heating systems are.
Floor heating price?
For a full 50-square-foot bathroom, an electric floor heating system can cost as little as $265. A larger master bathroom that is 120 square feet will range between $590 and $833, depending on the type of installation you select.
WarmlyYours Radiant Heating offers five different products to meet its customers’ budgets and level of expertise. Custom Mats are delivered precut according to your room’s specs so that all you have to do is roll it out to install the cable. Flex Rolls are 1.5 feet wide and consist of a heating cable embedded in mesh that can be cut and turned to accommodate the room layout. Easy Mats are rectangular mats designed to heat small areas such as the space in front of a vanity, shower or toilet. Finally, the cable can be installed using fixing strips or an installation membrane for maximum flexibility. WarmlyYours makes it easy to decide which product is right for you through its Instant Quote tool.

What Are The Operating Costs?
If you want an even better understanding of how much your electric underfloor heating system will cost you on a day-to-day basis, WarmlyYours has another tool you should check out. By submitting the square footage of the heating area, the cost per kilowatt hour in your state, and how many hours a day your system will be running, the Operating Cost Calculator will show you how much you’ll spend each day on electricity in order to run your system. For example, it would cost an average of $0.09 a day to heat the 50-square-foot bathroom mentioned earlier for four hours each day. That’s less than $3 a month! For a larger 120-square-foot bathroom, it would cost about $0.22 a day, which is less than $7 a month.
