A radiant floor heating system uses a series of hot water tubes or wires under the floor to produce a smooth, even heat. Unlike a forced air furnace or HVAC unit, which quickly pushes hot air up through vents toward the ceiling, an in-floor system heats slowly over its entire surface.
In floor heating is a great choice for a bathroom because it works well with tile flooring. In addition to consistent, comfortable heat and cost savings over time in floor tile heating installations in your bathroom also cut down on noise. With no furnace to cut in, there are no ducts to rattle or loose vents to shake or squeak. In addition, these systems can last up to 40 years or more before needing replacement or maintenance.
