Bathroom Floor Heating Toronto, Canada

There is nothing worse than stepping out of a hot shower onto ice-cold floors. The rush for a pair of slippers is not something you want to keep doing. That is what makes an investment in heated floors a great move. Heated floors add luxury and comfort to any bathroom. The best thing is unlike a conventional HVAC system, electric floor heating is more energy-efficient and offers hundreds of dollars in savings on utility bills.

Average cost of installing heated bathroom floors

Expect to spend minimum of $475 for a bathroom that is 100 square feet. The maximum reported cost for the same bathroom size is $725. The average cost is between $5 to $8 per square foot. For 100 square feet, you can expect to spend about $600.  

Most homeowners assume that installing heated floors is very expensive. That is not true. Thanks to advancements in technology, the cost of installing floor heating has become very affordable.  It is good to note that the cost of bathroom floor heating varies depending on a number of things such as the installation company you choose and the materials you use. The cost will also vary depending on the surface area that has to be covered. The larger the space is, the higher the cost of both materials and installation.

How radiant floor heating works?

One of the ways in which floor heating is more efficient than HVAC is the fact that it relies on radiation to heat the floor and the room. With HVAC, the air is heated and then blown through ducts. Due to the fact that air is circulated around the room dampers and vents, most of the heat is lost. Hot air also rises and descends only when the marked energy is lost. With heated floors, the entire floor surface is heated by electric cables embedded beneath the tiles. The heat from the lower half of the room then radiates to every corner of the room. There is less heat wastage with heated floors.

Health benefits of radiant bathroom heating

As aforementioned, HVAC relies on air circulation. What you might not know is that when air is heated it loses its humidity. Low humidity in the air leads to respiratory issues. There is also the issue of dust and other allergens when heating is dependent on air circulation. The case is different with the radiant heating you get from heated bathroom floors. The system heats the surface of the bathroom and not the air. Floor heating doesn’t rely on fans or ducts to redistribute air like HVAC. Consequently, the issue of dust and seasonal allergens will be eliminated.

Steps for Installing Radiant Floor Heat in your Bathroom Floors

Bathroom floors can get really cold, especially during the winter months. And since most people spend a substantial amount of time in the bathroom every day, it only makes sense to want to make this space warmer and cozier. The good news is that not only bathroom accessothies Toronto can make you bathoom cozy, you can also install floor heating system in your bathroom without much hassle.

Prepare the Floor

The first step is to measure the area of the floor where you will be installing the radiant heat wires. It is important to keep in mind that you will be measuring only the parts of the floor on which you will be walking. There is no need to heat the entire floor including where the cabinets are. This will only be wasteful. Ensure that the wires are at least 6 inches from the wax ring of the toilet. Once you have all the measurements, plot this on a graph paper and take it with you to your home store.

Install Heating Mats

The third step involves laying the mats in a design that works best for you and your bathroom. Before you place the mat on the floor, ensure you have put a thin layer of thin-set which will hold the mat in place. All you need to do to install the mat is to press it gently onto the thin-set. The mats have plugs which connect with each other to ensure a continuous circuit.

Finishing

So you have your heating mats in place, what’s next? The final step in ensuring your bathroom has heated floors is to put the tiles on top of the mats. For this to be effective, you need to put thin-set on top of the mats and then place the tiles on top. The tiles should be stone or ceramic. If you use linoleum tiles or carpet, you are likely to have the tiles melt or catch fire. Once you have your tiles well-placed you can now look forward to having a warm and cozy bathroom even in the coldest months.

Install Electric Circuit

For this, you will need to use a licensed electrician. If you are opting for floor heating mats, most manufacturers recommend that you have a 20-amp circuit. An electrician will install the circuit and also check the heat mats to ensure there are no shorting circuits.

Recheck

After the mats are in place, take time to check that everything is where it should be and that the mat is heating the floor evenly. You should also make sure that the heating cables are not too close to any fixtures in the bathroom.

Results

There are numerous benefits of heating your bathroom floor. For starters you will have a better time when taking showers and using your bathroom when the floor is heated. You don’t have to worry about ice cold tiles making contact with your feet. Also, you get to save on the overall costs of heating the house since heating the floor is more cost-effective compared to using the HVAC to heat the entire house.

What our Clients Say

Amazing product! We installed easy mat in a family room. The family room was part of an addition that was on a slab so the room was extremely cold especially in the winter. We used the mat under pad and carpet and it heats up in minutes. We are thrilled with how this product performs.

As a DIY, I really appreciated the snow melting cable from Heavenly Heat because it is so heavily jacketed I had no trouble with damage, testing the cable before and after proved that it withstood whatever it had to during installation. I love that it has a built-in return connection; meaning the cable doesn't have to make the "run" back to the relay panel - this made the install so much easier.
