Ft. Worth Skyline at SunsetAs the 16th-largest city in the United States and the fifth-largest city in the state of Texas, Fort Worth is most commonly associated with The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex that encompasses 13 counties within Texas. It is the economic and cultural hub of the region commonly called North Texas or North Central Texas and is the largest inland metropolitan area in the United States.

Fort Worth has a generally humid subtropical climate. Even warmer climates have their cool weather as freezing temperatures aren't unusual during the winter in Fort Worth. The city typically has 32 frosty nights from November to March, with the coldest nights dropping into the teens (degrees Fahrenheit). Cold flooring is uncomfortable no matter what the outside temperature is, so adding radiant floor heating to your next remodeling project makes perfect sense.

Welcome Your Guests with Radiant Floor Heating

These Ft. Worth homeowners chose to add a basement bedroom for visiting friends and family, which made it the perfect time to consider in-floor heating to warm up the cold basement floor. They purchased a WarmlyYours Environ™ flex roll floor heating system to keep the guest bedroom laminate wood flooring comfortably cozy during the winter season. The Environ system fills 112.5 square feet of floor space and costs $1081.00, which equates to just $9.61 per square foot. The Flex Roll is easy to cut and turn to effectively fill the floor space with soothing radiant heat. (see floor plan)

Basement/Bedroom Floorplan with Radiant HeatOperating the underfloor heating was also very affordable. According to WarmlyYours’ Operating Cost Calculator, it only costs 52 cents a day to heat this bedroom for eight hours. Annually, that comes out to just $121.45, based on WarmlyYours’ Heat Loss Calculator. The highest the monthly electric bill for this room would reach is $38.76 during the coldest month of the year. Another bonus is that the floor heating system can be the primary heat source for this room, so there won’t be any additional heating bills.

Radiant Heat as the Primary Heat Source 

To see if radiant heating can the primary source for any room in your home, WarmlyYours’s Heat Loss Calculator will ask for a few details about your desired room temperature, how well your room is sealed, and other specifics to determine how much heat is being lost. Then it will calculate whether or not radiant floor heat can be your primary heat source. 

Heat Loss Calculation Graph-Basement/Bedroom-Ft. WorthFor this basement bedroom, the ceilings in the room are 9 feet high and the room is located above a heated room. According to WarmlyYours’s Heat Loss Calculator, a floor-heating system can be the primary heat source for this room so no additional heating will be necessary; a substantial benefit to cost and energy savings. If the room contained significant heat loss sources, WarmlyYours would recommend radiant floor heat as a supplementary heat source instead.
