Cost Effective Radiant Heating = Cozy Tile Floors in Victoria

Victoria BC Inner Harbor Skyline at Dusk

Victoria BC Inner Harbor Skyline at DuskThe capital of British Columbia, Victoria, is situated on the southern end of Vancouver Island off Canada’s Pacific coast. Its Inner Harbor is considered one of the most beautiful harbors in the world attracting many locals and visitors to the festivals, shows and music events hosted there during the summer season. 

Victoria’s climate is classified as Mediterranean with cool, dry summers and mild, rainy winters. From December through February the evening temperatures can dip down to 3 or 4 degrees Celsius (38 or 39 degrees Fahrenheit). That specific combination of dampness and cold overnight can make the temperature feel colder compounding the chill of tile and stone floors throughout the home. Radiant floor heating is an ideal solution to warm up those cold surfaces making your home a comfortable and cozy retreat regardless of the weather.

Radiant Heat Transforms a Victoria Bathroom

Adding underfloor heating to a large Victoria master bathroom was an affordable way for these owners to warm up the elegant but cold tile in their newly remodeled bathroom, bringing additional warmth and comfort to their morning routine. These Victoria homeowners chose to install a 1.5- by 66-foot TempZone™ Flex Roll in their 99-square-foot bathroom for $1128.00 at a cost of $11.39 per square foot (see floor plan).

WarmlyYours’ Energy Use Calculator factors in the average kWh cost in Victoria of approximately 10 cents resulting in a daily cost of 26 cents to heat this bathroom for four hours a day, a small price to pay for the comfort and luxury of a radiantly warm bathroom. And beyond that, it only costs $47.04 to heat the bathroom during the coldest month of the year, based on WarmlyYours’s heat loss calculations. 

See If Radiant Heat Can Be Your Primary Heat Source

First, WarmlyYours’s Heat Loss Calculator will ask about your desired room temperature, how well your room is sealed, and other parameters to determine how much heat is being lost. As a result, you’ll find out if radiant floor heat can be your primary heat source.

According to WarmlyYours’s Heat Loss Calculator, a floor-heating system can be the primary heat source for this room so no additional heating will be necessary which is a considerable cost and energy savings. If the room had a fireplace or other poor sealing factors, radiant floor heat as a supplementary heat source might be recommended.
