Thinking about stepping out of that hot shower and onto the cold tile floor during the winter months sounds so unappealing. As we enter the fall season and the weather begins to cool down, there isn’t a better time to consider floor heating. Sometimes during the harsh winter, a bathroom rug just doesn’t cut it. The best solution for this problem is radiant floor heating. Easy to install and completely budget friendly, you will wonder why you waited so long to make the decision.
Radiant floor heating makes stepping out of a hot shower onto a tile floor, totally bearable. With this type of system, heat radiates through the floor to warm your chilly winter feet. Radiant systems are typically consistent of small thin heating cables that are installed right under your ceramic tile. Due to the small size of these cables, you never have to worry about raising your floor level or creating an uneven floor. Radiant floor heating is controlled by it’s own thermostat controls, making it possible to warm your floor as little or as much as you would like.
Contact a home remodeling contractor and find out if radiant floor heating is an option for you. There isn’t a better time, as the winter months are just ahead. If you are planning on having houseguests for the holidays, this can be a great way to have them feeling comfortable in the bathroom. Work with your contractor on budget and timing so that you can have wonderful warm heated flooring just before the holidays.
