Montréal is the largest city in Québec. Predominantly French speaking, it’s set on an island in the Saint Lawrence River and named after Mt. Royal, the triple-peaked hill at its center. Montreal experiences its coldest winter weather in January with nearly the entire month’s temperatures falling just below freezing. In fact, from November until April, Montréal can remain below freezing all day long. According to currentresults.com the city typically has 74 days a year when the temperature never rises above 0 degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit). With consistently cold weather like that, homeowners can find solace by bringing additional warmth to their homes with radiant floor heating.
See How Easy it is to add Radiant Heating to your Living Room
This Montreal homeowner chose to install radiant heating when remodeling their 13‘ x 19’ living room. They were able to heat the floors of their living room with 864 feet of 240-volt TempZone™ Cable for $1344. That equates to $7.19 per square foot. To add a SmartStat™ programmable thermostat, it costs $189, bringing the total to approximately $1540. (See floor plan below).
When considering a floor heating system, you should also factor in the operating cost. The cost to operate this system is fairly low.. It costs 79 cents to heat the living room for 8 hours a day, according to WarmlyYours' Energy Use Calculator. This tool factors in the average kWh cost in Montreal, which is just slightly over 7 cents. During the coldest month of the year, it costs approximately $80.00 to run this system according to WarmlyYours' Heat Loss Calculator. But this cost is an estimate and likely to be much lower depending on the primary heating source.
