Home for the Holidays in Montreal with Cost Effective Radiant Heating

Sunset over Montreal in Winter

Montréal is the largest city in Province of Québec, Canada. Set on an island in the Saint Lawrence River and named after Mt. Royal, Montreal experiences its coldest winter weather in January with nearly the entire month’s temperatures falling just below freezing. In addition, from November and up until April, Montréal often remains below the freezing mark all day long. 

Based on data from currentresults.com the city typically has 74 days a year when the temperature never rises above 0 degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit). With consistently cold weather like that, homeowners can find solace from the harsh winter season by bringing additional warmth to their homes with radiant floor heating.

Welcome Family + Guests with a Living Room Decorated in Radiant Heat 

 These Montreal homeowners decided to install in-floor heating when remodeling their 13‘ x 19’ living room. They wanted to warm the room where their family gathered together at the holidays and for the many other special occasions during the year. They were able to heat the floors of their living room with 864 feet of 240-volt TempZone™ Cable for $1344. That equates to $7.19 per square foot. See floor plan below.

When evaluating a floor heating system, you should also factor in the operating cost. The cost to operate this system is very low. It costs 79 cents to heat the living room for 8 hours a day, according to WarmlyYours' Operating Cost Calculator. This tool factors in the average kWh cost in Montreal, which is just slightly over 7 cents. During the coldest month of the year, it costs approximately $80.00 to run this system according to WarmlyYours' Heat Loss Calculator. But this cost is an estimate and likely to be much lower depending on the primary heating source.

There are Several Options to Control your Underfloor Heating System

Perfect for busy schedules, the nSpire Touch WiFi’s ability to be controlled remotely can help you realize energy savings without sacrificing comfort or convenience.
