Radiant Heat Electric vs Hydronic
We ae remodeling our kitchen and would like to add radiant heat. We live in New York and are on a slab. We will be installing a ceramic tile floor. The total sq foootage of the area to be tiled is approximately 470 sq ft, subtracting for cabinets etc I estimate approximately 350 sq ft of heatable area. Since I would prefer not to have to raise the hieght of the floor we would like to use electric radiant heat, but I have been reading that hydronic is better for larger areas and that the electric may be more expensive to run. I would appreciate any advice/opinions.
