Unlike other forms of heating, such as radiators or forced air, radiant heating provides consistent heat throughout a room. These floor heating systems used to be considered a luxury feature, but today, homeowners are realizing the benefits of a radiant floor heating system, especially in bathrooms and kitchens.
There are two types of radiant floor heating – electric and water-based. Both provide consistent, efficient heat, can save as much as 15 percent on a home heating bill, are compatible with all types of flooring, and are relatively easy to install.
The cost for radiant floor heating depends on the system installed, but the cost is typically between $1,717-$6,047. Factors impacting cost include floor type and size, type of radiant heating installed, materials, labor, installation location in the home, and site preparation and cleanup.
