Built along the western bank of the Mississippi River and on the border with Illinois, St. Louis’ current population is estimated to be just over 315,000 with the city being the cultural and economic center of the Greater St. Louis area (home to 2,916,447 people) making it the largest metropolitan area in Missouri and the 19th-largest in the United States. 

According to Zillow.com, the current median home value in Saint Louis is $113,600. Saint Louis home values have gone up 9.9% over the past year and Zillow predicts they will rise 4.1% within the next year. As St. Louis home values increase, now is a good time to boost them even further with home improvements as new homebuyers enter the market. Among the most popular remodeling projects, radiant floor heating adds value and affordable luxury to any room in the home.

Enhancing a Master Bath with Radiant Floor Heating

When recently remodeling their 123-square foot master bathroom, these St. Louis homeowners chose to install underfloor heating both to improve their homes’ resale value and add comfort to their daily routine. They decided to heat their beautiful new bathroom tile floors with 375 feet of 120-volt TempZone™ Cable for $560. That amounts to only $5.97 per square foot. (See floor plan below).

Along with the reasonable product price, the floor heating system is also very economical to operate. It costs just 27 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 St. Louis, which is slightly less than 13 cents. During the coldest month of the year, it costs approximately $78.00 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.
