Hi we are renovating our small house that we rent out. We are doing the bathroom and the heating that was in there was a baseboard. We have heard that you are not allowed to put baseboards in bathrooms, is this true? If it is infact true then we are planing infloor heating to replace the base board. Can we use the same wiring that was hooked up to the baseboard, when we put in the heating mat and new thermostat?
The mat should be on it's own circuit and supplied by a properly rated GFCI type braker at the main panel, it is advised to replace/install wiring to supply coverage area demand. Codes vary depending upon where you live, call your city and ask. Today we have radiant mats and boiler fired options. If you choose a mat, the thermostat should be installed locallly for the bathroom. Investigate forced air solutions if you have a furnace.
