Soothing comfort solutions

(NC)—There's nothing more arduous than the painful tip toe across your frigid bathroom floor on a cold winter morning. Cold ceramic tile or stone floors can be quite unforgiving early in the morning, usually at the precise time you need to use your bathroom. This is why more and more consumers are turning to the latest heating solution innovations for their bathrooms to replace the pain of cold floors with comfort and taste.

According to Mario St-Pierre, Marketing Director for Ouellet Canada, radiant floor heating is becoming the system of choice for bathrooms amongst discerning homeowners. St-Pierre said Ouellet's popular radiant floor heating systems, whether they're used for additional comfort or as a primary heat source, “are a safe and "green" heating solution that harnesses the benefits of radiant heating, a process that occurs naturally in nature and has long been under-utilized in the industry.”

“By heating the floor itself instead of the surrounding air, the system provides indirect heat that radiates from the floor up and is absorbed by surrounding objects; radiant floor heating systems produce enveloping heat that is also clean, cost-effective, uniform, and constant,” added St-Pierre. As a result, the homeowner experiences a completely different type of sensual warming comfort that literally spreads from toe to head.

A great addition to every heated floor is a programmable thermostat that allows you to set the time you wish the floor to begin heating and turn itself off, saving you both money and energy. In fact, because your comfort level is not dependent on air temperature with radiant heating, the electronic thermostat can be lowered three to five degrees with no adverse effects, according to St-Pierre. This means Ouellet's radiant floor heating systems deliver heat and comfort at lower temperatures, saving you a minimum of five per cent a year on your utility bill.

Here are more innovative heating solutions St-Pierre advised for your home:

In the bathroom, we often require instant heat to take the bite out of those cold winter mornings this is why Ouellet's new OVN Fusion bathroom wall heater is so popular. Designed for areas with space restrictions and high heating requirements, the OVN's squirrel-cage fan and ribbon-type heating element will quickly warm up a room with limited available wall space. Electronic thermostats with digital, lighted controls let you program the desired comfort level of your room.

For any room in your home, St-Pierre also recommends Sunshine radiant cove heaters, the latest innovation in radiant heating. These radiant heaters work by heating the objects and people instead of the surrounding air, much like radiant floor heating, comfortably warming the entire room.

The Sunshine unit is installed high up on the walls and its sleek look add style and class to any decor while producing enveloping heat that is clean, cost-effective, uniform, and constant making it a safe and soothing heating solutions.
