Should You Add a Radiant Heating System to Your Bathroom or Kitchen?

Adding a radiant heating system (floor heating) to your bathroom or kitchen can be a wonderful addition to your home. Remember all those times that you would step out of the shower and onto the cold bathroom floor? Or the time when you were doing the dishes and some water spilled on the floor and got your feet all cold? Well, a radiant heating system would take care of all that.

The way it works is you decide if you want an electric or water system, then you have it installed underneath the floor. It’s best to do this when you’re already remodeling the bathroom or kitchen, because removing and replacing your floor can become expensive. Not to worry though, our KAC Express team can handle any situation. They will complete the install with ease, so you won’t need to worry too much about the actual process.

A radiant floor heating system will heat a small kitchen or bathroom nicely. It’s basically just a system of piping below your floor that radiates heat up to you. To make the system work better, it should be placed under a surface that conducts heat well, such as tile or stone. Since the heating is under your floor, you won’t have to deal with ugly wall units taking up space and cramping your style.

Floor heating systems are also energy efficient, especially water systems. It may take a while to get it started, but once the water reaches the correct temperature, it takes very little energy to keep it at that point, since water holds its temperature very well. In the long run, the system will effectively pay for itself just from the savings on your heating bill alone. This isn’t even considering how much the comfort provided by the system is worth to you.

Although a radiant heating system is great for any home, stop to ask yourself the following questions before deciding whether you want one or not:

  1. Am I planning on remodeling my home or building a new one soon?
  2. Do I value my comfort and happiness?
  3. Do I want a radiant heating system?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it may be time to get a radiant heating system in your home. We value your comfort, and will walk you through the whole process step by step. ive us a call at 832-326-5678.
