Heated floors are great! Who can resist the warmth and coziness of walking barefoot on flooring that radiates heat, especially on a cold night. Radiant floor heating is an energy-efficient way to keep temperatures in your home at an ideal level and offers a more effective way of warming up during winter. In today’s post, Virginia semi-custom home builder, Sadler Building Corporation, shares the basics you need to know before ripping out your old flooring to install a radiant floor heating system.
How Does Heated Flooring Work?
As the name suggests, radiant floor heating is an under-the-floor heating system that emits heat through your floor’s surface, rather than through the air. The two most common types of heated flooring are electric and hydronic. An electric system uses electric wires. They are cheaper and easier to install but costs more to operate. A hydronic system emits heat via hot water tubes. They are a bit trickier to install and may cost more upfront, but are less expensive to operate.
Why You Should Consider Heated Floors
Many people consider heated flooring systems to be a luxury but they are actually not that expensive to install and operate. Remodeling contractors swear by heated floors as an easier way to experience “pure warmth”. When you heat up from your feet, it is easier to stay warmer at a much lower temperature.
The Cons of Installing Heated Floors
The only real thing that discourages homeowners from installing heated floors aside from the initial cost is the difficulty of installation especially if your floors are already in place. For heated floors to be installed, you will need to rip out your old flooring.
