How To Heat Tile Or Laminate Wood Floors

After having installed ceramic tile and stone for 20 years, I think the biggest complaint was that it was cold in the winter. It’s cold in the summer also but it feels nice then. I have installed a couple of different systems and the Suntouch System seemed to be the best. One can have a mat for large areas prepared at the factory by furnishing them with the layout of the area to be heated. It can also be purchased in premade sections for small areas, like in front of toilet, at stores like Lowes. The instructions have to be strictly adhered to for them to honor the warranty. You can do the wiring of the floor and the thermostat yourself but I highly recommend having and electrician check your work.
