Stay toasty with heated tile floors

Archeologists have found evidence of smoke-heated floors in cave homes; now, modern ceramic tile systems radiate heat through tile floors with fluid (“hydronic systems”) or electricity (“electic systems”). Outdoor applications include melting driveway ice, but your family can stay toasty warm at home with heated tile floors.

Heated tile benefits include improved air quality, safety (no burn hazards), and the ability to lower home heating costs. Hydronic systems can sustainably turn solar thermal energy boilers into lower heating costs. Another green option is an electric mat installed directly under floor finishes, which can be turned on and off according to pre-set timers.
