Under floor heating

Thinking about laying electrical under floor heating in my basement bathroom prior to laying the tile. Bought the kit and thermostat, but heard it takes a while (up to 90 minutes) for it to heat up to a comfortable level. Anyone have experience with this and if so, any recommendations?

Thanks

What kit did you get?

It is true, some heating takes some time depending on type of mat, and the type of material it is heating.

It's recommended to have a programmable t-stat that will automatically turn on the mat when you choose and shut of automatically.

I bought the Warm Tiles brand. It is not the mat because I needed flexibility due to the odd shape/size of the bathroom. Basically, you attach three metal strips to the floor and run the wire in notches in the strips. You then lay down mortar and then wire it up. A friend bought it and it works fine other than the fact that it takes about 90 minutes to get fully warmed up and it costs an additional 20 dollars a month on electrical.
