Even though it’s not known for extremely cold winter temperatures, the coldest nights in Kansas City can still drop to 0 degrees Fahrenheit or lower based on data from currentresults.com. The city normally has 21 days a year when the temperature never rises above freezing. The coldest days occur from November to March, and are most common in January. That’s where radiant floor heating comes in by bringing both comfort and luxury to a Kansas City home.
The current median home value in Kansas City is $116,400. Did you know that Kansas City home values have gone up 7.3% over the past year and Zillow predicts they will rise 3.7% within the next year? Even so, the KC real estate market is cold right now but adding underfloor heating can add value to attract prospective homebuyer’s or become one of the top projects a new homeowner undertakes to add affordable luxury to their new space.
See How Easy it is to Add Radiant Floor Heat to this Bathroom Remodel
To add comfort to the morning routine and also improve their homes’ resale value, these Kansas City homeowners decided to install underfloor heating when remodeling their 93 square foot bathroom. They chose to heat the bathroom floors with 300 feet of 120-volt TempZone™ Cable for just $480. That amounts to $6.40 per square foot. (See floor plan below).
When considering a floor heating system, it’s also important to evaluate the operating cost. The cost to operate this system is reasonably low. It costs just 22 cents to heat the bathroom for 4 hours a day, according to WarmlyYours' Operating Cost Calculator. This tool factors in the average kWh cost in Kansas City, which is slightly less than 11 cents. During the coldest month of the year, it costs approximately $58.19 to run this system according to WarmlyYours' Heat Loss Calculator. However, this cost is just an estimate and most likely will be much lower depending on the primary heating source of the home.
