Radiant Heating Sales Hit Decade-High in Q1, Says WarmlyYours
Lake Zurich, IL, May 25, 2021-Radiant heating sales hit growth levels in Q1 2021 that haven’t been seen in over a decade, according to a recent industry report.
WarmlyYours, a manufacturer specializing in electric floor heating, released its Q1 2021 Industry Report, which analyzes the sales of radiant heating products within the wider context of the national housing and remodeling markets.
One of the primary conclusions drawn in the report was that floor heating sales were up 31.1% when compared to the prior-year-period.
Another finding in the report concerns some shifts in the floorcoverings being paired with floor heating. While tile (up 11.7%) is likely to always make up the lion’s share of floor heating projects (typically making up around 88% of projects), it only made up 80.7% of projects in Q1 2021. Vinyl floorcoverings, particularly luxury vinyl tile and plank, have been growing in popularity for the last couple of years, and these coverings made up 5.5% of all floor heating projects in the first quarter of this year.
