Looking at winter warming options for your home? Consider under-tile heating as an efficient and practical investment. No longer as pricey at is used to be, it keeps rooms warm longer than most other heating solutions.
There aren’t any annoying cold spots as it spreads under the entire floor space. The heat radiates into all solid objects touching the ground and then into the air through convection. This means the room stays warm for ages!
It also only minimally impacts home design, as there is no need for wall spaces or cavities to be given up for big heating units. No extra expansion links are needed either, as it can be installed straight under tiles or stone rather than in the slab itself.
Running it is straightforward – use the touchscreen wall thermostat to heat it up to a cosy 22 degrees.
Beaumont Tiles communications and design specialist, Christie Wood, says one of its best features is how family friendly it is.
“The system is child-safe with no exposed heaters so little fingers won’t get burnt, and for the many families who suffer allergies, under-tile heating is a saviour because it actually prevents mould from building up.”
It’s also a great investment if you’re planning to retire in your current home – my grandmother swears by it to soothe her feet when she wakes up in winter. Nothing better than toasty toes on a cold morning!
Bathroom kits will set you back around $499 from Beaumont Tiles, while setting up a large family room costs $1200-1600. Once installed expenses are minimal though, with running costs per square metre averaging two cents an hour.
