Heated Floor: 4 benefits to know
More and more homes are warming up to heated floors! Heating your home via an in-floor heating system might be the ideal solution. The benefits of heated floors are encouraging more homes to adopt this solution, and we see more and more new buildings integrating in-floor heating into their blueprints.
Discover the 4 benefits of heated flooring to your health, well-being, space and pocketbook.
1- Thermal Comfort with Homogeneous Heat Diffusion
Heated floors allow you to diffuse homogeneous heat throughout your rooms.
Thanks to the Ditra-Heat system developed by the company Schluter Systems, heat is transmitted quickly from bottom to top.
The Ditra-Heat system is unlike traditional baseboard heating, which only targets a particular spot in a room, thereby limiting any circulation.
In addition, our high-power regulating thermostats allow you to easily control the temperature. We recommend that you program your heating according to your needs to avoid any discomfort.
2- Comfortable and Healthy, Too!
Heated flooring is a daily dose of well-being. If your home is a place of serenity, you’ll appreciate the fact that this heating system is so silent, you’ll even forget that it’s in the room!
Floors are installed with heating cables, so your rooms are heated without stirring up air or dust, providing a healthy environment, especially for those suffering from allergies.
In addition, heated flooring is completely safe with zero risk of burning, making this solution ideal for your little ones.
3- A Space Gain That Makes All the Difference
Installed with heating cables beneath your floor, your heated floor allows you to discreetly heat your rooms, saving you the eyesore of traditional heating systems—and saving you space, particularly for smaller areas.
In fact, a heated floor will free up approximately 7% liveable surface.
4- Well-being That Won’t Break the Bank
While you might think that the comfort and quality associated with heated flooring means a big dent in your wallet, you’d be wrong.
Installation of heated flooring can be expensive, but fortunately, this is a step that you can do yourself, provided you have the time and energy available. If not, you can call on professionals, notably an electrician and a tiler, to take care of the installation for you.
Installation may represent a significant initial investment, but the long-term savings more than make up for the cost. In fact, heated flooring can allow you to save up to 15% on your electric bill.
Heated flooring is not only a high-quality “in” thing, but it’s also a healthy option that maximizes your living space. You can easily hire a professional to either install yours for you or to guide you on the steps to installing it yourself. We are here to help you if you have any questions!
