Types of Heated Flooring
Whether you want to add heated floors to your bathrooms, or the master bedroom, the team at Bath, Kitchen and Tile Center have the equipment and expertise needed to get the job done right. Radiant floor heating is offered in two different types of systems. It operates using either electricity or water, though electrical systems are more common.
Once you’ve chosen either hydronic or electric, it’s time to choose the flooring material to go on top. To help reduce energy costs and increase heat radiation, our team recommends using a thermal flooring material such as ceramic tile. Tile is known to be incredibly effective in heated flooring applications, over other options like vinyl or wood.
