Minneapolis Winter Skyline

Bisected by the Mississippi River, Minneapolis has an abundance of water, with thirteen lakes, wetlands, the Mississippi River, creeks and waterfalls, many of which are connected by parkways in the Chain of Lakes and the Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway. Exploring these waterways is a fun pastime during the summer season. Come winter Minneapolis weather can be very inhospitable.

According to currentresults.com, from October to April, Minneapolis can remain below freezing all day long. The city typically has 69 days a year when the temperature never rises above 32 degrees Fahrenheit. And if that isn’t enough, the average annual snowfall is 54 inches. Between the consistently cold temperatures and the snowy winter weather in Minneapolis, radiant floor heating is a welcome addition to warm up any room in the home. Here’s how you can make radiant heat a reality in your home.

Radiant Heat Can Raise the Comfort Level of Your Kitchen 

When it came time to realize their dream of an upgraded kitchen, it made sense for these Minneapolis homeowners to enhance their project with underfloor heating. The cost was $798 for a 1.5’ x 56’ TempZone™ Flex Roll to heat 84 square feet of the beautiful wood floors in this medium-size kitchen. That amounts to just $9.50 per square foot. See floor plan.

In addition, the cost to operate the system is relatively low. Only 53 cents a day will heat the kitchen for 8 hours, based on WarmlyYours' Operating Cost Calculator. This tool factors in the average kWh cost in Minneapolis of approx. 12 cents. A small price to pay for the cozy comfort it brings to one of the most active rooms in the home.

Plus, the comforts of radiant heat don’t end with the floors. WarmlyYours also offers Countertop Heating to take the chill off cold stone and granite counters. The best part is that you can add the heat underneath your existing counters, so it’s easy to install without any remodeling.
