A typical installation will cost approximately 1.5** cents per hour per square meter of heated area when warming up. Once the floor has warmed up the thermostat switches the heater on and off automatically. In normal winter conditions if the heater is the only source of heat in a reasonably insulated room you can expect the heater to be on for between 30% and 50% of the time. This time will obviously vary depending upon the climatic conditions and the comfort levels required. Every 1ºC reduction in the temperature setting of your thermostat will result in a 6% reduction in power usage over 24 hours.
An average bathroom (500 watts) will cost approx $15 to $20 per month using an electronic floor thermostat at normal operating temperature.
** Please be aware that actual costs will vary between electricity supply companies.
