Heated Tile Floors
Ceramic tile floors not only can add a stunning visual appeal to your home, but when combined with a radiant floor heating system, can add luxurious warmth as well. Install a heated tile floor and enjoy the subtle comfort of a silent, energy-efficient radiant heated floor.
Installing an electric heated tile floor is not a daunting task. While the electrical work should be done by a qualified electrician, installing the heat cable and tile flooring can be accomplished by any ambitious do-it-yourself homeowner.

ComfortTile floor heating cable is Warmzone's number one recommended radiant heating solution for warming tile floors. Heat cable can be purchased in spools as well as in mats. The floor heating mats feature heat cable that is pre-spaced and woven into an adhesive-backed fiberglass mesh that can be rolled out for quick, easy and accurate installation. The 24-inch wide mats are pre-terminated for use with 120 and 240 volts, and are available in a variety of lengths.
Tile Floors - A Natural Complement to Radiant Heat Systems
Ceramic tile floors are ideally suited for radiant floor warming systems. The tile heats quickly, yet retains warmth for long periods, so the system is comfortable and energy efficient. The heating cable or mats can be installed on a variety of subfloors, including: plywood, concrete, pre-stressed concrete panels, crack isolation membrane or any floor surface compatible with the adhesive. The floor should be flat, smooth and free of protruding nails or screw heads that could potentially damage the cable. Depending on your subfloor, thinset or mortar is applied directly over the heat cable, followed by the installation of the tile.
