A Denver Bathroom Reaches New Heights with Low Cost Floor Heating

Denver Skyline in Winter Aerial View

An American metropolis that dates back to the old west era, Denver is both the capital and the most populous city in the state of Colorado. Nicknamed the Mile-High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile (5,280 ft or 1,610 m) above sea level, Denver is one of the highest major cities in the United States.

Denver also has four distinct seasons and receives a modest amount of precipitation spread throughout the year. Due to its inland location on the High Plains, at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, like all cities along the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains, Denver is subject to sudden changes in weather. December, the coldest month of the year, has a daily average temperature of 29.9 degrees Fahrenheit (−1.2 degrees Celsius). On the coldest nights of the year, lows can easily fall to 0 degrees Fahrenheit (−18 degrees Celsius) or below. Snowfall is common throughout the late fall, winter and early spring, averaging 53.5 inches (136 cm) for the 1981–2010 period. One easy way to combat those cold, wintry Denver temperature dips is by adding radiant floor heating to your next remodeling project.

Underfloor Heating Elevates This Mile-High City Bathroom 

Adding radiant floor heat to their master bathroom was both an affordable and efficient way for these Denver homeowners to bring the relaxing warmth and comfort of floor heating to their daily lives. To warm their cold tile floors, they installed TempZone™ floor heating cable in their 75-square-foot bathroom for $480.00 at a cost of only $6.40 per square foot. (see floor plan).

Now that you can see the low cost of materials, check out the affordable operating cost. Based on WarmlyYours’s Operating Cost Calculator, it only costs 23 cents a day to heat this bathroom for four hours and according to our Heat Loss Calculations, it costs $55.45 to heat the bathroom during the coldest month of the year. Overall, it’s a very economical way to add the comfort and luxury of a radiantly heated bathroom with soothing warm floors while upgrading your home at the same time.

While remodeling your bathroom you might consider creating your own in-home spa with the simple addition of a towel warmer or mirror defogger. To complete the effect, there are shower floor and bench mat heating systems. Your comfort is well worth the small additional cost.
