Houston is an expansive metropolis in Texas. In fact, the total area of Houston is so large, it could contain the cities of New York, Boston, and San Francisco at the same time.
By contrast the city’s downtown area is relatively compact and includes the theater district, home to the renowned Houston Grand Opera, and the historic district, that creatively pairs 19th-century architecture with trendy restaurants in the area.
While Houston has a mild and temperate climate, it’s more prone to extreme temperature variations than many similar southern cities. Even without these fluctuations, more and more homeowners in warmer climates are recognizing the unpleasant effects of a cold floor, which is leading to an increase in popularity of underfloor heating to warm those cold surfaces up.

Calculating Costs for Adding Radiant Heating to a Kitchen Floor
When planning their kitchen remodeling project these Houston homeowners decided to add electric radiant floor heating to warm up the stylish but cold laminate flooring they had selected. They chose to install an Environ Flex Roll floor heating system in the 223-ft² space for approximately $1000.00 at a cost of just $9.00 per square foot. The Flex Roll consists of an insulated heating cable sandwiched between two layers of reinforced, durable aluminum foil that radiates 12 watts per square foot. (see floor plan)
It’s a good idea to factor in the cost for operating the system. WarmlyYours has these useful online tools to help you do that. Based on WarmlyYours’s Energy Use Calculator it costs just 52 cents to heat this kitchen for eight hours a day and according to our Heat Loss Calculator it costs a mere $32.64 annually to heat the kitchen.
