The Cost of Heating Cold Tile in a Small Kitchen

TempZone Flex Roll in a small kitchen

Whether it’s the dead of winter or the height of summer, tile floors will feel cool if the sun isn’t shining directly on them. And when you spend a great amount of time in a tiled room, a chilly floor makes a big difference. A great way to heat it up is with electric floor heat.

When you think of cold tile, two rooms probably come to mind: bathrooms and kitchens. Nowadays, families and friends are spending a lot more time in the kitchen — entertaining, doing homework and using the computer. That makes it even more important to create a comfortable space. WarmlyYours floor heating is an affordable solution.

The Cost of Floor Heating

It costs just more than $500 to heat a small kitchen. This homeowner used a 1.5- by 30-foot TempZone™ Flex Roll to heat her 79-square-foot kitchen (see floor plan). The Flex Roll cost $517.50, which is less than the price of any of her appliances! Adding a SmartStat™programmable thermostat adds $169 to the purchase, which brings the total to $686.50. Without the thermostat included, the price of the heating element equates to just $11.50 per square foot.

Plus, the cost to operate the floor-heating system is very low. It costs less than a quarter to heat the kitchen floors for eight hours a day. To be precise, it costs 23 cents a day, according to WarmlyYours’ Energy Use Calculator.
