More about it:

Electric radiant floor heating typically consist of electric cables built into the floor. Systems that feature mats of electrically conductive plastic are also available, and are mounted onto the sub floor below a floor covering, such as tile. Because of the relatively high cost of electricity, electric radiant floor heating is usually only cost effective if it includes a significant thermal mass, such as a thick concrete floor, and your electric utility company offers time-of-use rates. Time-of-use rates allow you to 'charge' the concrete floor with heat during off-peak hours (approximately 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.). If the floor's thermal mass is large enough, the heat stored in it will keep the house comfortable for eight to ten hours, without any further electrical input (particularly when daytime temperatures are significantly warmer than nighttime temperatures). This saves a considerable number of energy dollars compared to heating at peak electric rates during the day. Radiant floor heating systems tend to be the easiest to install, as they require far less additional parts to operate, and the material itself is rather small in comparison. Radiant floor heating may also make sense for additions onto homes for which it would be impractical to extend the heating system into the addition.
