I just want it to be under wood floors too, not just tile
Looking for an efficient way to warm the heart of your home? You might want to think about installing a radiant floor heating system in your kitchen. “Any kitchen where you do a lot of living is a good candidate for it,” says kitchen designer Christine Baumann. Warm air rising from the floor can do more than just keep your tootsies toasty; it can make the entire room feel comfortable and cozy, even on the chilliest days. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “Radiant heating has a number of advantages. It is more efficient than baseboard heating and usually more efficient than forced-air heating because it eliminates duct losses.” That’s important to know if you’re wondering whether it will fit in your budget—in addition to factoring in the initial outlay, you'll also want to consider its long-term savings.
