Beat the Toronto Winter Chill with Affordable Radiant Floor Heating

Toronto Skyline at Dusk for Kitchen Floor heating Blog

Although Toronto is known for a picturesque skyline and many beautiful parks, during the winter season those parks are frequently covered with snow. Snowstorms, sometimes mixed with ice and rain, can disrupt work and travel schedules, while accumulating snow can fall anytime from November until mid-April. 

Additionally, throughout the winter months, temperatures usually fall below 0 degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit). Periodically Toronto suffers cold snaps when maximum temperatures remain below −10 degrees Celsius (14 degrees Fahrenheit) that often feel colder with the wind chill factor. Temperatures can even drop below −25 degrees Celsius (−13 degrees Fahrenheit) on occasion. But there’s welcome relief from all that cold. Incorporating radiant floor heating into your home can easily minimize the bitter effects of a Toronto winter bringing soothing warmth and comfort to your daily life.

Create a More Functional Home Office with Low Cost Floor Heating 

These Toronto homeowners had recently decided to turn a rarely used bedroom into a useful home office. One concern was that the room faced the northeast and was always colder than the rest of the house. As they were remodeling, it simply made sense to add electric floor heating so that the room would be a comfortable temperature to work in. They chose a 1.5- by 45-foot Environ™ Flex Roll to install in the 112-ft² space for $730.00 at a cost of just under $11.00 per square foot. (see floor plan)

It’s also a good idea to evaluate the cost to operate the system. According to WarmlyYours’s Operating Cost Calculator it only costs 40 cents to heat this office for eight hours a day and our Heat Loss Calculator suggests it costs just $29.82 to heat the office during the coldest month of the year. This system can be a primary heat source for the room without incurring additional heating bills which is an added benefit.
