Are Warmly Yours Radiant Floor Heating Systems Energy Efficient?
The answer is yes, floor warming is a very efficient way to provide heat. Electric underfloor heating cables use electrical resistance to generate heat that is then radiated to the solid objects in a room. This means much less wasted energy than in other forms of heating like forced air because the solid objects heated by a radiant source will retain their energy longer than hot air will.
However, while a radiant heat system is very cost-effective, it still uses electricity. The operating cost for your radiant heating system will depend on a few things like the size of your system, the temperature you’re trying to achieve, and the cost of electricity in your area.
The number one reason to install radiant heating under a new floor is absolutely the comfort, a heated floor is literally luxury you can feel but you probably already knew that.
All warmly Yours radiant floor heating products have been rigorously tested and are cULus or cCSAus listed.
Electric floor heating is inexpensive if you put it in while you’re already replacing or installing a floor. In fact, the cost for the system itself is as low as $5 per square foot. Unlike hydronic systems, an electric in-floor heating system doesn’t require expensive pumps or water heaters.
Warmly Yours radiant floor heating can be used as your primary heat source or as a way to add supplemental heat to rooms that are tricky to heat like the basement or a room above a garage.
