Get Rid of Your Cold Tile Floor
The Benefits and Advantages of Installing a Heated Tile Floor
Tile floors can get very cold and become unpleasant to walk on at those times. A tile floor can be heated using the Schluter or Mapei Electric Floor Heating System, so you can keep your feet warm and feeling comfortable all year around while lowering your heating bill. On average an electric floor heating system that is running for 8 hours a day will consume approximately $1.00 per day of hydro electricity to heat 160 square feet of area. In comparison to the cost of operating a gas furnace to heat the same size area for approximately $1.50 per day, savings amount to over 30% when using an electric floor heating system instead. The two main reasons to install a heated tile floor are quite beneficial at increasing your quality of life and efficiency of your heating system.
We always recommend installing the Schluter-DITRA-HEAT-DUO uncoupling and waterproofing membrane with an integrated bonding fleece that provides sound control, as well as a thermal break. The sound control feature reduces impact sound transmission through floor to ceiling assemblies. The thermal break feature reduces heat loss to the substrate for up to 70% faster heat-up times. Combined with the Schluter-DITRA-HEAT-E-HK electric heating cable and connected to the Schluter-DITRA-HEAT-E-RT programmable touchscreen thermostat, we can create a warmer and more luxurious tile floor than ever before.
