If you’ve ever been in a home with heated floors, you already know how magnificent they are. They make a room feel cozier, more comfortable, and a bit luxurious. Who doesn’t feel rather fortunate when stepping onto a warm floor after getting out of bed or the shower? If this sounds like something you’d love but could never have, think again. We have great news. Electric floor warming systems aren’t nearly as expensive or difficult to maintain as you might think. Especially when you consider that over time your heated floors will return some of your investment by helping to lower your heating bill during cold months.
We highly recommend installing the Ditra-Heat system designed by Schluter. Installation is relatively easy and once it’s in place it requires practically no maintenance. Installation of the system involves laying down the membrane and weaving the heating cable through its raised ridges. The system requires no leveling, and the way the membrane is constructed allows you to cover it with most any tile you desire. Ditra-Heat is also the only electric floor warming system that directly incorporates uncoupling technology to ensure that floors aren’t susceptible to cracked tiles and grout.
Further, you can set the cable in a wide variety of patterns to create custom heating zones within the bathroom, kitchen, or entryway as desired. How awesome is that?! The floor not only stays warm but also maintains the ideal temperature in the areas you frequent the most. Once you’ve woven the system, you can connect it to a digital thermostat, enabling you to control and maintain the perfect temperature based on your personal preference.
If you’ve been daydreaming about heated floors now is the time to take a closer look. You’d be surprised how uncomplicated they are!
