Halifax was ranked by MoneySense magazine as the fourth best place to live in Canada for 2012, placed first on a list of "large cities by quality of life" and placed second in a list of "large cities of the future", both conducted by fDi Magazine for North and South American cities. An Atlantic Ocean port in eastern Canada, Halifax is the provincial capital of Nova Scotia. The weather is usually milder in the winter than other areas at similar latitudes inland, with the temperature (with occasional notable exceptions) at about −8 degrees Celsius (17.6 degrees Fahrenheit) during the winter. January is the coldest month, being the only month with a high that is slightly below freezing at −0.1 degree Celsius (31.8 degrees Fahrenheit).
Precipitation is high year-round with winter featuring a mix of rain, freezing rain and snow with frequent freeze-thaw cycles. Snowfall is heavy in winter, but snow cover is usually spotty due to the frequent freeze-thaw cycles, which melt accumulated snow. Some winters bring colder temperatures and fewer freeze-thaw cycles; the most recent of which was the winter of 2014-2015, one of the coldest, snowiest and stormiest in about a century.
High precipitation brings cold, damp temperatures in the winter months compounding the chill of tile and stone floors throughout the home. Radiant floor heating is an ideal solution to warm up those cold surfaces to make the home a comfortable and cozy retreat come rain or shine.
Here’s How Easy it is to Add Radiant Heat to Your Bathroom
In this instance, adding radiant electric heat to a large Halifax master bathroom was an affordable way for the owners to bring additional warmth and comfort to their morning routine. This Halifax homeowner installed a 1.5- by 66-foot TempZone™ Flex Roll in their 99-square-foot bathroom for $1128.00 at a cost of $16.03 per square foot (see floor plan).
In addition to the reasonable cost of the materials, the operating cost should also be considered when planning the budget for the project. It only costs 41 cents per day to heat this bathroom for four hours a day, according to WarmlyYours’ Energy Use Calculator that factors in the average kWh cost in Halifax. And beyond that, it costs $152.96 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.
