Another Reason To Install Heated Floors

When I updated my bathroom, I installed an in-floor heating system. It was really easy and not at all expensive to install. Basically, you roll out the electric heating mat underneath your floor covering (in my case, slate tile), and have an electrician wire it to your power source. Simple!

It’s been my favourite feature by far. Nice warm floors in the bathroom after stepping out of the shower. Well, I found a great use for the floors today other than keeping tootsies warm. My girlfriend has been upset with me for leaving my stinky hockey gear in the spare room for a couple of days after use to dry out. Compounded with that, I’ve got company coming from out of town that need the spare room, and I’ve got hockey on Sunday. No way I’m skating in wet gear. What’s a guy with limited space and time to do? Smelly Hockey Equipment!!!

Solution: crank up the thermostat for the bathroom floor and lay out the gear on the floor! I left the house at 8:00 this morning. By the time I returned at 3:00 everything was dry. Problem solved. Give it a try!

Another tip: Leave your towel on the heated floor while you’re in the tub or shower. Nice and toasty after you get out!
