As Florida’s largest inland city, Orlando is probably best known as the home of Walt Disney World. One of the world’s premiere tourist destinations, Orlando has a long list of other attractions; Universal Studios Florida, SeaWorld Orlando, and the Orange County Convention Center, the second largest convention center in the country.
The climate in Orlando is classified as Humid Subtropical like much of central Florida. There are two distinct seasons ranging from hot and rainy during the summer and then warm and dry during the winter. During the cooler winter season, humidity is much lower and temperatures are more moderate, and can fluctuate more readily.
Warm climate or not, a cold floor is uncomfortable especially when combined with air conditioning that’s necessary most of the year in warmer locales. Radiant floor heating is an ideal solution to warm up those cold surfaces in any room of your home.

When planning their kitchen remodeling project these Orlando homeowners chose to add electric radiant floor heating to warm up the stylish but cold tile flooring they had selected.

While budgeting for your remodel, it’s also a good time to consider the cost for operating the system. WarmlyYours has these useful online tools to help you do just that. Based on WarmlyYours’s Operating Cost Calculator it costs just 48 cents to heat this kitchen for eight hours a day and according to our Heat Loss Calculator it costs a mere $17.03 annually to heat the kitchen.
