These are fiberglass rolls that come with pre-attached heating cables. The rolls are 1.5 feet wide. Each roll consists of a heating cable that is attached to a mesh with a 3″ spacing. The mats can be embedded in any flooring type. They are simply cut and turned to accommodate the layout of the room. Flex rolls are quite popular because they are easy to install and can be used in many floor coverings including tiles, marble, and stone. The rolls typically cost between $10 and $12 per square foot.
These mats are designed for smaller areas such as a shower or toilet. They are usually rectangular in shape and have heating cables attached to them at 3″ spacing. They guarantee an even heat output of 15 watts per square foot. Other than their ease of installation, these mats allow you to heat only the areas of the floor that need heat most. This helps to reduce material costs and operating expenses. The typical cost of easy mats would be between $10 and $12 per square foot.
To allow maximum flexibility, the cables are installed using fixing strips or an installation membrane. The cable membranes ensure that the heating elements are held at the proper spacing of about 5″ for even heating. It also helps to protect the fragile flooring types such as tile and stone. Combining both the cable and membrane is costly but it can cut the installation time to just a day. The two will cost between $15 and $20 per square foot. If the cable is installed with fixing strips instead, it will cost between $5 and $15 per sq. ft.
These mats are pre-cut to suit the room’s specs in order to make installation simple and easy. In terms of wattage, you can customize it per square foot. Most custom mat projects cost between $15 and $20 per square foot.
This type of heating makes use of hot water that is circulated using plastic pipes installed in the concrete of the basement flooring. The homeowner is able to control the flow of water to different areas of the basement floor using a single thermostat. While this type of heating is expensive to install, it tends to save up to 40 percent of the cost of operations in the household once installed. It also works well in both new floors and those that have been in use for a while. While you might be tempted to do it yourself, hydronic radiant heating is best installed by a licensed installer.
While still popular among homeowners, this is not the most practical nor the most economical type of basement floor radiant heating system for an existing basement. This is unless you are ready to replace the concrete slab. This system is a perfect choice for new constructions. Most new home builders are opting for this option because it works more efficiently than all the aforementioned systems when installed properly.
Due to the fact that the cost of basement floor slab has already been calculated, the addition of basement floor radiant heating system only helps you recuperate long-term energy saving costs. You can use the system on its own or in combination with HVAC. The best thing about radiant floor heating systems is that they are very quiet. There are no constant noises associated with fans, blowers or creaking pipes.

Although electric in floor heat systems are largely safe, there is always a risk of short-circuiting and overheating, as is the case with all electric systems. Proper installation by a competent installer and the use of high-quality materials is necessary to reduce the risk of short-circuiting and overheating.
These systems work best for porcelain and ceramic tile floors. They do not work well for hardwood, vinyl, or carpeted floors.
