Low Cost Facts on Radiant Heat in a Minneapolis Kitchen

Minneapolis Winter Skyline

There are many fun facts about Minneapolis that you may not know. Here’s a random sampling. For instance, the Minneapolis Skyway, spanning 69 downtown blocks, is the longest continuous skyway system in the world. Did you know that the Minneapolis Public Library was the first library in America to separate its children’s books from other sections?

You may be surprised to learn that Minneapolis is one of the most tech savvy cities in the country—they were among the first in the U.S. to use wireless internet and Geek Squad was founded there. Most of us are aware that there are many lakes in Minnesota but did you know there are over 20 lakes within Minneapolis’ city limits, leading to its well-deserved nickname “city of lakes”? And last but certainly not least, that Charles Schulz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip, is a Minneapolis native.

Now here are the ‘not so fun’ facts about Minneapolis. According to currentresults.com from October to April, Minneapolis can remain below freezing all day long. The city typically has 69 days a year when the temperature never rises above 32 degrees Fahrenheit. And if that isn’t enough, the average annual snowfall is 54 inches. Between the consistently cold temperatures and the snowy winter weather in Minneapolis, radiant floor heating is a welcome addition to warm up any room in the home. Here are the facts to help you make radiant heat a reality in your home.

The Cost for Transforming your Kitchen with Radiant Heat

These Minneapolis homeowners had long wanted to upgrade their kitchen so when it came time to fulfill their dream, it made sense to enhance their project with radiant floor heating. The cost was $798 for a 1.5’ x 56’ TempZone™ Flex Roll to heat 84 square feet of the beautiful wood floors in this medium-size kitchen. That equates to just $9.50 per square foot! See floor plan.

It costs 53 cents a day to heat the kitchen for 8 hours, according to WarmlyYours' Energy Use Calculator. This tool factors in the average kWh cost in Minneapolis of approx. 12 cents. During the coldest month of the year, it costs $47.56 to run the system. All year long, it's estimated to cost under $225, according to WarmlyYours' Heat Loss Calculator. A small price to pay for the cozy comfort it brings to one of the most active rooms in the home!

When it comes to radiant heat, it doesn’t end with the floors. WarmlyYours also offers Countertop Heating to take the chill off cold stone and granite counters. The best part is that you can add the heat underneath your existing counters so it’s easy to install without any remodeling.
