Many homeowners complain about walking on their bathroom floor on a cold winter day as the tile floor is really cold. Porcelain and ceramic tile cools quickly, but they can also heat up just as quick – which begs the question, is getting heated tile flooring worth it? Today, Premium Design LLC would like to answer that. There are a few factors to consider when making the decision.
First, the cost of installation isn’t the cheapest. The installation involves a few extra steps to lay the heating network under the tile. This, however, brings us very quickly to the second consideration – once heated tile is installed, it doesn’t damage your pocket. Electric bills for a heated floor are not as expensive as some might think, and that is due to the intrinsic properties of tile – tile heats up very quickly, but cools down slowly. This allows homeowners the added benefit of having radiant heated floors, without actually having the floors heating up themselves – an added benefit on a cold winter morning.
