Low Cost Radiant Floor Heating Upgrades This Toronto Bathroom

Toronto Skyline at Sunset

Toronto, the capital of the province of Ontario, is a major Canadian city along Lake Ontario’s northwestern shore. It's a dynamic metropolis with a core of soaring skyscrapers, crowned by the iconic CN Tower. Widely recognized as one of the most multicultural and cosmopolitan cities in the world, Toronto is an international centre of business, finance, arts, and culture. 

While many people are drawn to Toronto for its culture and diversity, the winters can be tough to take. During the winter months, Toronto temperatures are usually below 0 degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit). Occasionally there are cold snaps when maximum temperatures remain below −10 degrees Celsius (14 degrees Fahrenheit) and often feel colder due to the wind chill. In fact, temperatures can even drop below −25 degrees Celsius (−13 degrees Fahrenheit). Snowstorms, sometimes mixed with ice and rain, can disrupt work and travel schedules, while accumulating snow can fall anytime from November until mid-April. With these extremes radiant heating is a welcome remedy for warming cold floors anywhere in your home.

Underfloor Heating Raises the Bar in this Toronto Bathroom

These Toronto homeowners wanted to bring the relaxing warmth and comfort of floor heating to their daily lives. Adding in-floor heat to their master bathroom was both an affordable and efficient way to achieve this goal. They installed TempZone™ floor heating cable in their 70-square-foot bathroom for $528.00 at a cost of only $8.12 per square foot to warm their cold tile floors. (see floor plan).

Now that you know the low cost of floor heating materials, check out the economical operating cost. Based on WarmlyYours’s Operating Cost Calculator, it only costs 26 cents a day to heat this bathroom for four hours and according to our Heat Loss Calculations, it costs $74.92 to heat the bathroom during the coldest month of the year. Overall, it’s a very affordable way to add the comfort and luxury of a radiantly heated bathroom with soothing warm floors while upgrading your home at the same time.

When remodeling your bathroom you might consider creating your own in-home spa with the simple addition of a towel warmer or mirror defogger. To complete the effect, there are shower floor and bench mat heating systems. Your comfort is well worth the small additional cost.
