Warming Floor Tiles In Bathroom


Can anyone suggest the best solution or brands for warming the floor of a bathroom?

I have lookked at various solutions and do not understand the benifits or differences being sold. The floor will be ceramic tile and I am looking for an electic warming solution that I can install in the cement or thinset below the tile.

I can't help you with the electric floor system, but would tell you I have the 1/2" pex in my mud floor and love it running around 90 degree water through the floor, 42sf. its nice to place the bath towel down on the floor by the tub take your shower come out to a warm towel when finished.

I prefer Easyheat, inexpensive, best layout, but most labor expensive.


I've also used the mat type systems, but your limited to layout, its very expensive, but the labor to install them is less.

Thanks for your feedback. The room is small, so cost will be less of a factor than the labor. I would rather spend a little more money to purchase if it is easier to install.

The mat type system is by far the easiest to install. I usually sell Nu-heat and have the tile guy set them.

I will look into suntouch, how do you think it compares to NuHeat? Obviously everyone will have their favorite, but I am curious as to why they like the choice they recommend.

I use Nu-Heat because thats what my supplier stocks, all the brands do the same thing, just get whats available to you.
