It’s Easy to Add Affordable In-floor Heating to the Bathroom, Kitchen, or Any Room in Your Home

Recent data on listing terms when selling a home uncovered some popular home features, among those heated/radiant floors. It makes sense that if people are looking to buy a home with these amenities, then existing homeowners should consider them when remodeling. WarmlyYours has an underfloor heating system for most any application and any room in your home. Here are some room examples along with compatible flooring selections.

No More Cold Bathroom Tile with Underfloor Heating

These Dayton homeowners needed to warm up the elegant but cold tile flooring in their newly remodeled bathroom, so they decided to add radiant floor heating to their medium master bath. Radiant heating is the perfect solution to bring welcoming warmth and luxury to your daily routine.

Low Cost per Square Foot of Radiant Warmth and Low Operating Cost Make This Bathroom Affordably Cozy

For their project, these owners selected a 1.5- by 38-foot TempZone™ Flex Roll to install in their 70-square-foot bathroom. The cost was only $598.50 or $10.50 per square foot. In addition to the material cost, the operating cost should also be factored into the remodeling budget. WarmlyYours’ Operating Cost Calculator figures in the average kWh cost in Dayton of 11.79 cents resulting in a daily cost of 43 cents to heat this bathroom for four hours a day, a small price to pay for the comfort and luxury of a soothingly warm bathroom tile floor. Furthermore, the system can be the primary heating source for the room which is an additional cost and energy savings advantage.

Calculating Costs for Heating Up a Laminate Kitchen Floor

As their kitchen was one of the most used rooms in their home, these Dayton homeowners knew it made sense to add electric in-floor heating when planning their kitchen remodeling project.  To warm up the stylish but cold laminate flooring they had selected they chose to install an Environ Flex Roll floor heating system in the 123 square foot space for $860.00 at a cost of approximately $12.00 per square foot. The Flex Roll consists of an insulated heating cable sandwiched between two layers of reinforced, durable aluminum foil that radiates 12 watts per square foot.

The system was designed to heat the floors of their office with 300 feet (75 square feet) of 120-volt TempZone™ Cable for $480.00. That amounts to just $6.40 per square foot.
