Cost of Underfloor Heating Systems

We offer a range of electric floor heating systems suitable for a wide array of projects and positioned at different price points.

Warmup’s 24 years of research and development into underfloor heating has led to us creating the right system for your specific requirements, whether you are renovating a bathroom or building a house. Learn more about the systems below.

Your project’s sub-floor type and final floor covering also ultimately inform which system is right for you. To work out which system is best for your project, read our Floor Coverings guide.

Whether you are installing the StickyMat System under a tiled kitchen floor or using the DCM-PRO Decoupling System in your lounge, all our electric systems are competitively priced and perfect for use in any home refurbishment.


An example of cost for our StickyMat System in a standard 89 sf bathroom with accompanying insulation and a Warmup Thermostat for greater heating efficiency is around $833, about the same is a new freestanding bathtub.
For a larger space such as a kitchen requiring 237 sf of the StickyMat Underfloor Heater, a rough pricing would work out to $1,381.50 for the system, $1,155 for the accompanying Insulation Boards and $289.00 for a 4iE Smart WiFi Thermostat to control the system.

You can use our online quotation tool to quickly receive a clear quote for your project, broken down into three different pricing options, from the least costly to the most comprehensive system. This quote will take into consideration your inputted details of floor size, floor finish, usage and heating source.

Installation Costs

Warmup does not offer installation of our underfloor heating systems. The price of installing a system depends on which installer, builder, tiler, plumber or electrician you choose to hire for your project and these prices can vary region-to-region and tradesman-to-tradesman. However, if you are in the process of renovating your bathroom for instance, the fee for your tiler installing an underfloor system as they replace your floor tiles is often negligible.

A pricing suggestion of about about $260-400 per day for your tradespersons work would be fair and most of our systems can be installed within a room, start to finish, in about 1 – 1.5 days. This gives us a general estimate of about $520 for installing an underfloor heating system.

Always confirm your installer is a skilled, qualified expert with experience in installing floor heaters.

Running Costs

Underfloor Heating can offer substantially lower running costs compared to traditional central heating. This is because floor heating systems offer much quicker heat-up times than central-heating based systems whilst also running at lower temperatures yet still producing the same level of warmth in the room.

Running costs can vary depending on your home’s design, how well insulated it is, cost of electricity and how you control and monitor your home’s heating.

See our Running Costs Information Table below for examples of these running costs and use our Running Costs Calculator to get an idea of how much money you could save by installing Warmup heating in your home.

Running Costs Table Information

For these figures, we assumed an energy price of 17.41c/kWh and using the system for 6 months (182 days) on a 3/8″ (10mm) Warmup Insulation Boards. Avg. running cost after an initial heat-up period is 1.1754 c/sqft/h.

BATHROOM 41.8 sf 2hrs 1hrs $34.13
KITCHEN 52.25 sf 1hrs 2hrs $41.72
LIVING ROOM 156.75 sf 0hrs 3hrs $117.29

Cut down on energy with a Smart Thermostat

A Warmup Smart Thermostat plays a crucial role in lowering the running costs of a heating system. Our technologically-advanced 4iE Smart Thermostat prevents energy wastage, making sure your heating is only running when you need it. It also offers remote access and energy-monitoring functionality; using a 4iE with its connected Smartphone apps can save you up to $492 on your annual energy bills.

Increase heat up time and decrease heat loss with Insulation

Warmup’s range of Insulation Boards is of paramount importance when lowering running costs of underfloor heating. Properly insulating your floor with Insulation Boards can increase the heat-up period of the system significantly, reducing the overall underfloor heating running cost by as much as 50%.
