    Default Electric Heating for a new bathroom addition 8feet by 5feet

    Hello all & thank you in advance for any advice.

    Currently working on an addition 22ft by 22ft on slab concrete in Delaware County PA (southeast of Philadelphia). The walls & roof are SIPs panels. The ceilings are vaulted. Enclosed in this space directly to the right of the main front door is a full bath (on the N/E corner- 1 mainly east facing exterior wall 8ft long) at 8ft by 5ft which includes a velux permanently closed skylight(east facing) and a casement window (east facing). A primary electric heat source needs to be installed. My original thought was a thermostat controlled hardwired fin electric 3 foot baseboard heater. But I have been looking at the Runtal electric baseboards & Runtal Omni wall panels. They are just so expensive and I don't know if they are worth the 100-200% price increase over standard electric baseboard.

    Any thoughts or suggestions? (electric radiant heating under the tile was originally dismissed because of concerns of price & not being suitable as a primary heat source and also because I will be doing my own tiling over a ditra mat and didn't want to mess with self leveling flooring over the electric heating rolled mats as a relatively novice DIYer).

    Thanks,
    Ann Elise
