Electric Floor Heating

Hello! Our skoolie is about to get insulation and plywood installed for her floors. Next we're thinking about putting electric heated floors in the main walking areas. We'll also have a wood burning stove as our main heat source. We plan to be in cold climates just as often as hot and my wife is always freezing so staying warm is a must and heated floors just sound amazing.

-Let's say we didn't do the heated floors and were planning on on 1inch Rigid Pink board insulation then 3/4 plywood, how cold will our floors be? I know everyone's comfort is different, but ya know.
-Has anyone used STEP Warmfloors? We received a quote from them and really couldn't find much other RV/Skoolie specific applications.

Thanks

Unless your always on shore power, forget electric heat sources, other than for ignition / fans / pumps etc.

A fuel-burner hydronic system will heat the space through air exchange, give HWS, and warm the floor if you like.

Integrate with the engine block loop to get heat from driving.

Did a search for HWS, comes up as a college in New York.

Hot Water System, I assume. You know what happens when you assume.
