Calgary, a cosmopolitan Alberta city with numerous skyscrapers, owes its rapid growth to its status as the hub of Canada’s oil industry. Calgary is the largest city in the province of Alberta, and the third-largest municipality and fifth-largest census metropolitan area (CMA) in Canada. Situated at the junction of the Bow River and the Elbow River in the south of the province, in an area of foothills and prairie, about 80 km (50 mi) east of the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies, Calgary’s climate is categorized as dry humid continental.
Calgary's chilliest winter nights have lows in the minus-thirties Celsius (below -22 degrees Fahrenheit) based on currentresults.com. The city averages three or four nights a year that get that cold, mostly in January and December. In addition, from October to May, Calgary can remain below freezing all day long. It usually has 59 days a year when the thermometer never rises above 0 degrees Celsius. Prolonged cold spells such as these can make indoor temperatures quite uncomfortable. You can warm up those cold floors and rooms with radiant floor heating and radiant panels. Although radiant heat is a perfect addition for any room in the home, kitchens and bathrooms are the most popular applications.
Cost of Adding Radiant Heat to a Bathroom
In this situation, adding radiant electric heat to a mid-size Calgary bathroom was very affordable and a great way for the homeowners to bring additional warmth and comfort to their morning routine. To set up their Calgary in-floor heating, this homeowner installed a 1.5- by 27-foot TempZone™ Flex Roll in their 60-square-foot bathroom for $486.00 at a cost of just $12.00 per square foot (see floor plan).
In addition to the low cost of the materials, the operating cost should also be factored into the project. It only costs 13 cents per day to heat this Calgary in floor heating system for four hours a day, according to WarmlyYours’ Energy Use Calculator that factors in the average kWh cost in Calgary. And beyond that, it only costs $55.90 to heat the bathroom during January, the coldest month of the year, based on WarmlyYours’ heat loss calculations, a small price to pay for the comfort and luxury of a radiantly warm bathroom.
