Heating coils under ceramic tile

I am going to install ceramic tiles in the entryway to our house (i
also must be crossed to go upstairs), and my question is do you think should install heating coils while I am in the process. I have force hot air for heat and there is a heat vent near the door, but is i worth it to also install the coils. I see this as a once in a lifetim opportunity, but on the other hand, I don't want to waste money o something that I don't need. They have a unit on sale at Menard's fo about $140 plus $120 for a programable thermostat. I don't need th heat, and other than touching it with stocking feet on occasion, won't probably utilize it. I am under the impression that electri heat isn't very efficient. Please post your comments, and let me kno if you know of a cheaper unit

I am going to install a tile floor, and am deliberating whether I shoul
also install heating coils at the same time. This is for a entrywa that also leads to the upstairs. I have a heat vent next to the doo (forced hot air) so I don't need the coils for heat. I realize th tile will be cool to the touch, but is it worth it to install the coil just so my feet don't feel cold when I get up in the morning and go t be at night? Also I think electric heat is very expensive. The uni is on sale at Menards for $140. plus $120 for the thermosta (programmable). It's probably a one time deal, so I am tempted t install it even if I don't use it. What's your thoughts? Are yo aware of a better unit? This one is from "Easy Heat" and consists of wires that you string bac and forth to create any pattern you need.
Thanks
