heated-bathroom-flooringWhen planning your Northern Virginia bathroom remodeling project, it’s the perfect time to think about installing radiant floor heating. Radiant heating systems work by directly supplying heat to the floor, walls or ceiling of your home. Radiant floor heating is a great addition to any bathroom  renovation, and provides warmth, comfort and fantastic energy savings for your home. Radiant heating systems work with all types of heat sources, like gas or oil-fired furnaces, wood-fired boilers, or solar water heaters. It works seamlessly with your design plan because it is truly invisible. Covered with your choice of beautiful tile, radiant floor heating is perfect in the bathroom.

The ultimate in comfort

Cold bathroom floor tiles remind us every morning that winter is here. Even though Southern winters are mild, Radiant floor heating provides that extra touch of comfort and luxury that will set your Northern Virginia bathroom remodeling results apart from the rest. Emerge from your shower or bath and step onto a beautiful warm floor. It doesn’t get much more luxurious than that!

Energy savings

Radiant flooring is more efficient than baseboard heating. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “radiant heating has a number of advantages over other forms of heat distribution: “It is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating because no energy is lost through ducts.”  Installing radiant flooring in your Northern Virginia bathroom remodeling job will save you money over the long run.

Benefits for allergy sufferers

If anyone in your household suffers from allergies, radiant flooring can really help. Instead of air, dust and microbes being blown around by standard HVAC duct heating systems, the heat just radiates up from the floor. No air is blown around and allergies are less likely to flare up because of the lack of moving air.

Daniels Design and Remodeling will help you decide whether an air-heated, electric or hydronic system is best for your home. Installing radiant floor heating during your Northern Virginia bathroom remodeling project is a great way to reduce your energy costs, help with allergies and give you the luxurious comfort of warm bathroom flooring.
