Radiant heated floors certainly beat baseboard heaters in several aspects in terms of performance, but perhaps the crowning feature of heated floors is the maximum flexibility they offer consumers. Electric radiant heating offers three main traits of flexibility that baseboard heating systems don't: installation freedom, variety, and custom design plans.

Installation Freedom

Radiant heated floors, on the other hand, can go in any room under any surface. Floor heating systems can also be installed under existing floors as well. Whether you’re building a brand new home or sprucing up an old one, there are radiant floor heating systems designed to accommodate your specific needs so that everyone can experience the benefits of radiant heated floors. Plus, you’ll never have to worry about keeping your furniture away from a dangerous heater. Feel free to place that fabulous new sofa wherever you see fit.

Additionally, heated floors can be installed on virtually any surface you can think of. Install one in your carpeted living room, your hardwood dining room, your tiled bathroom, or all of the above.

When it comes to choosing a baseboard heater, there aren’t that many options to choose from. All baseboard heaters are essentially the same quality that can leave much to be desired.

With a radiant heated floor system, however, you have a slew of high-quality products to choose from.
