Cold Tile + Low Cost Floor Heat = A Cozy St. Petersburg Bathroom

St. Petersburg, FL Skyline

Situated along Florida's gulf coast, St. Petersburg is part of the Tampa Bay area. It's well known for its pleasant weather making it popular for golfing, boating, fishing and beach going. 

The city is often referred to by locals as St. Pete. In fact, neighboring St. Pete Beach formally shortened its name in 1994 after a vote by its residents.

Even though winters are generally warm, recently the winter of 2014–15 brought the lowest recorded temperature at the St. Petersburg Downtown Airport of 40 degrees Fahrenheit (4 degrees Celsius), which the city recorded on February 20, 2015.

Initially underfloor heating in a warm climate may not seem to be a necessary addition to your remodeling project, but if you recall that unpleasant feeling when stepping out of a warm shower or bath onto a cold tile floor then you may want to reconsider. When remodeling your bathroom, it’s a perfect time to include the affordable luxury of radiant floor heating so you won’t ever need to deal with cold tile again.

Radiant Heating Options for an In-Home Spa Bathroom 

For these St. Petersburg homeowners, adding radiant floor heat to their master bathroom was an affordable and effective way for them to warm up the cold but stylish tile in their new master bathroom remodel.  After careful research, they installed TempZone™ floor heating cable in their 123-square-foot bathroom for $560.00 at a cost of $5.97 per square foot. (see floor plan).

Now that we’ve outlined the reasonable cost of materials, see how affordable the operating cost is. Based on WarmlyYours’s Operating Cost Calculator, it only costs 35 cents a day to heat this bathroom for four hours and according to our Heat Loss Calculations, it costs approximately $11.72 to heat the bathroom during the coldest month of the year. Better yet, annually the operating cost is just $24.95. 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 go one step further and create 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 and well-being is worth the small additional cost.
