Radiant Heating: Radiant floor heating
The thin (less than 1/8th inch) heating mat is embedded with looped heating coils (think electric blanket), with four layers of foil designed to evenly distribute heat. It can be installed under wood laminate flooring or carpet, without significantly altering floor height.
The average 320-square foot room can be heated for 58 cents a day (assuming 10-hour usage). This auxiliary heating system comes with a 7-day programmable thermostat. The manufacturer recommends final connections be performed by a licensed electrician.
