Charlotte is the largest city in the U.S. state of North Carolina and the second largest city in the Southeastern United States, just behind Jacksonville, Florida. It also has the distinction of being the third fastest growing major city in the United States.
That growth is supported by recent data from Zillow that shows the median home value in Charlotte of $161,600 and rising. Charlotte home values have gone up 5.6% over the past year and Zillow predicts they will rise 3.3% within the next year. If you are a new homeowner remodeling your bathroom, it’s the perfect time to add radiant floor heat to your project. According to currentresults.com the average low temperatures in Charlotte hover around the freezing mark from December through February making radiant floor heating a nice addition to take the chill off those cold tile floors in the morning. Radiant heat is ideal for any room in the home, but the most popular applications are kitchens and bathrooms.

In addition, the cost to operate the floor-heating system is quite low. It costs only 12 cents a day to heat this bathroom, according to WarmlyYours' Energy Use Calculator.
