There is nothing worse than padding barefoot across the bathroom tiles on a cold winter Monday morning. The chill might wake you up but it’s a rude awakening, especially when you’d much rather stay in your nice comfy bed until the day gets a bit warmer. However, it doesn’t have to be that way. Installing a bathroom underfloor heating system will do away with cold bathroom floors forever, leaving you to wake up in a nice hot shower instead.
They come in two types, cable and mat. The cables are laid out in loops on the surface that lies under the floor, curving easily around planned bathroom cabinets and on the right side of the shower door line so no heat gets wasted. The mat systems use the same idea, with the cabling kept inside a mesh matting for easy installation. Some mats are even self-adhesive to make the process even simpler.
Most bathroom underfloor heating systems are controllable with a simple thermostat, linked to a floor probe. That way they can be turned off or down in the warmer months. From an environmental perspective, underfloor heating is quite a good idea. The whole room is gently heated as the warm air near the floor circulates, heating the room evenly and efficiently. With a radiator, for example, the area around the appliance is hot, but because it’s such a small area the rest of the room doesn’t get the full benefit of that heat. And of course, with underfloor heating you don’t need to install a heater, leaving more space for bathroom cabinets and fixtures.
