How much does it cost to run in floor heating in Ottawa?

The cost for in floor heating varies by surface area, type of boiler, and intended usage. For example, it’s going to cost more if you’re heating a living room versus just a bathroom. Generally speaking, however, in floor heating is a highly efficient form of Ottawa home heating.

Installation also requires more skill and labour than other types of heating systems. A good way to save money on the installation is to have it done when you are already planning to re-do your floors.

What you spend in the one-time investment of in floor heating installation, you’ll get back in energy savings. In floor heating also requires less maintenance than a ducted heat system, especially when you have it professionally installed by Pro Duct Solutions.

Will a heated floor heat a room?

In floor heating is perfectly capable of heating a room.

It will depend on things like the size of the room, the age of your home, and the layout of your living areas. In floor heating will have no problem heating the entirety of a large bathroom in a modern home but might struggle with a master bedroom in a drafty, old home.

How long do heated floors last?

Approximately 35 years!

One important thing to remember about in floor heating in Ottawa, is that the system should be installed by qualified professionals, like the trained technicians at Pro Duct Solutions.

What kind of flooring is best for in floor heating?


Tile and stone flooring make the best choice for in floor heating, this is one of the reasons that in floor heating is often installed in bathrooms. That, and the delightful feeling of stepping out of the shower onto a nice, toasty floor.

Flooring with a higher level of conductivity, like tile and stone, allows the heat transfer to happen quickly. These types of flooring also hold heat better than wood floors, which allows for higher efficiency and lower energy bills.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t put heated floors under wood flooring, but you will have to be more careful about the type of wood you use, some wood flooring doesn’t handle the heat as well.
