Radiant floor heat tied into old electric baseboard 240

Good morning. We used to have electric baseboard heat throughout our house and recently converted to gas. The electric baseboards are still in a few rooms that I havenít removed them in yet including our master bathroom. We plan on redoing the bathroom within a couple months and would like to add radiant floor heat (for the wife). Iím wondering If anyone knows if I can remove the old baseboard heater and tie in the new radiant floor heat to the 240 wiring where the baseboard was which is connected to our thermostat in the bathroom when we remodel?

That may be a common 240v heating circuit but since the electric radiant floor draws a lot less power than the baseboard.... there shouldn't be a problem. You need to look ahead of time for a 240v radiant floor heating system. It will come with it's own thermostat and control system.
