Electric Underfloor Heating

Pros, Cost and More

Modern electric floors have become all the rage for homeowners looking to make luxurious updates to their homes. This article covers everything you need to know about electric underfloor heating so that you can make an informed decision when it comes to upgrading your home’s heating system. 

What is Electric Underfloor Heating? 

Electric underfloor heating is a type of HVAC system that uses electric resistance to warm your home. It works by passing wires through your floor that heat up and distribute warmth throughout your living spaces. It provides even, consistent heat to every room, unlike radiators, which only heat the room they’re placed in. 

Pros of Electric Floor Heating 

Even heat distribution – It heats every part of your home, allowing you to turn down your thermostat and save money in the long run. 

Safety – There are no open flames or gases, which means it’s a great choice for homes with children or pets. 

Efficiency – It uses much less energy than other options like gas or oil boilers, so it’s a great choice for anyone who wants to save money on their bills. 

How Much Does Electric Underfloor Heating Cost? 

The cost of electric underfloor heating varies greatly depending on your home’s size and layout. A professional should come to your home to assess the installation before giving you a price quote. Generally, you can expect to pay anywhere from $2.50 to $3.50 per square foot for installation. The price is based on the type of flooring that you have in your home.
