Winter is ahead..One of my colleagues suggested me to go for suntouch electric radiant floor heat. Does Suntouch under floor heating system really works good? What about installation? Is it too expensive..? also worried about electricity bill... Any advises, recommendations will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your time & help.

Your colleague was right. SunTouch Electric Radiant Floor Heating Mats are the safest & easiest way to keep warm and enjoy comfortable walking surfaces. And they are the easiest Electric Radiant heat mats to install in the Industry. It doesn't cost you much for installation. However it depends on the type of product that you are going to install. Power consumption is very less.

We absolutely love ours, works great, no noticeable increase in electric bills. It appeared to be easy to install with the cost of install being in the hiring of the electrician to hook it up. They are never cheap. The
cost of the mats themselves aren't cheap either, but well worth the money.

I thought Watts made the only electric radiant floor with no EMF because of how they lay out the wires?

what about using it for a basement which has flooded in the past (should not recur if basement sealed well from rain but may not be able to guarantee)

I've used Warming Systems wire (not mat) in 4 different rooms. It's easy to install, is cheaper than the mat systems, and we've had no problems with it. Looking forward to turning it on again in a few more weeks. :-)

There are several systems out that are good. Suntouch is certainly one of them, as well as Laticrete's Farenheat, Warmly Yours', and Costco's system, all of which are clones of the Suntouch system, and all just as good. The only other system that I know well, and think highly of would be Nuheat's system. About the only difference in their mats from the other is the "matting" that the wires are weaved through. Whereas with the Suntouch system, it's kinda like a fishnet, with Nuheat, it's more like burlap. That's about the only difference I've seen, and I have no problem installing any of these systems. All are reliable, all have terrific product support (and I DO mean terrific), and all are priced, give or take, about the same. I guess it all depends on which is most available to you, and who's willing to give you a deal.

Bill

Have you heard of Thermosoft? I'm thinking about installing this in the kitchen underneath the engineered flooring. I like the idea that it doesn't require any cement over it and therefore wouldn't raise the flooring. I already have installed the flooring in other parts of the house & have stopped close to the kitchen area. However, I'm little concerned about the installation. The flooring people were NAILING & glueing down the planks & I'm assuming they are going to do the same for the kitchen.

I HAVE heard of them, and although I've had no experience with them, I've heard nothing bad about them.
