Does tile flooring keep a room colder?
Tile flooring is a versatile material, giving you benefits and characteristics that make it a great addition to your home. Does it keep a room colder? That’s a great question! Let’s answer that today.
Tile that benefits you
Floor tile can keep a room colder in the summer, which ultimately saves you on utility bills. It also keeps you comfortable and cool. As a natural material, tile retains the environment’s temperature around it. Some wouldn’t say that the tile is colder, but it just feels cooler beneath our feet.
However, when our feet are cooler, our entire body follows with the feeling. This can be applicable in the hot summer months. So the whole house might be warm, but when we step on that tile, it feels cool to the touch.
The opposite is also true. Tile can keep your house warmer when installed over a radiant heating unit. The distribution of the warmth is natural and easy. Tile conducts heat well. So add a few area rugs to soften up the room for excellent comfort. Or, if you want to guarantee a warm floor, have a radiant floor heating system installed.
