In-floor heating
 
I'm about to install new bathroom floor tile and I'm thinking about installing in-floor heating (120V electric not water) first. Does the 120V require it's own circuit or can I tap into an existing circuit in the room? I'm thinking it needs it's own circuit but it's a mini-project (the main panel is 2 floors away) and I don't want do the work if it's not necessary. :huh:

Some of those products lend themselves to branch circuitry as long as the line/breaker is heavy enough to carry the additional load.

You are however dealing with a resistance circuit and a dedicated circuit is the best and safest way to do it.:)
