Heated Floor Underlayment

Radiant or heated flooring is becoming one of the most popular updates that homeowners are making when renovating a family room, bedroom or bathroom. Heated flooring has many advantages because it is much more efficient than baseboard heating, and some forced air heating, because there is no heat loss due to leaky ducts. For those families that suffer from sever allergy, radiant flooring can also help eliminate allergens being distributed through the air. There are three basic types of heated flooring; air heated, electric heated and hydronic. Since air can’t hold a large amount of heat this type is rarely used in a residence. Electric heated flooring can be costly and add to your energy costs, so it’s not typically used in large areas and reserved for bathroom remodeling projects. Hydronic radiant floor heating is by far the most popular and cost effective for heating a large space and is often used in residential homes. For the most part, the installation of heated floors should be completed by a flooring expert.
