Very small possible radiant heating -- electric

Jamie HallJamie Hall Member Posts: 14,916
A field about which I know almost exactly nothing.

My son has a very nice little house in the Burlington, Vermont area. The house has an addition over a crawl space for the master bedroom and the master bath. Bedroom has electric baseboard and is warm enough (my son and daughter in law are young and very fond of each other!). The bath has about two feet of electric baseboard and a tile floor which is cold. Floor is, as I say, tile over skim cement over an inch and a half of plywood. Open bebeath, conventional joists. Could electric radiant heat be installed? Insulation, I assume, uner the heating lines? Suggestions?

    I think Watts Radiant has an underfloor electric radiant system. Unless you want to re-tile
