Low Cost Underfloor Heat Adds Functionality to a Riverside Office

Riverside, CA Skyline

Part of the Greater Los Angeles area, Riverside, California is located 60 miles east of Los Angeles and named for its location alongside the Santa Ana River. Due to its close proximity to Hollywood and many unique architectural features, Riverside is a favorite choice for filmmakers.

Winters are mild but relatively wet in Riverside. Damp conditions combined with cold tile, stone or laminate surfaces can make flooring inhospitable regardless of the outside temperature. That’s where radiant floor heating can really make a difference in the comfort and functionality of any room in the home.

Radiant Heat Warms Up this Office for Less than a Dollar a Day

In this instance, these Riverside homeowner’s decided to install radiant heating during a recent remodeling of their home office to take the chill off their laminate flooring. The system was designed to heat the floors of their office using Environ Flex Rolls at a cost of $900.00. That amounts to just $9.21 per square foot. (Refer to floor plan below).

It’s important to consider the operating cost of your floor heating system when budgeting for your project. WarmlyYours makes it easy for you with our Operating Cost Calculator. Based on the data from this tool, the cost to operate this system for 8 hours a day is just 75 cents. This calculator factors in the average kWh cost in Riverside, which is just over 16 cents. In fact, the annual operating cost is just under $14.00 according to WarmlyYours' Heat Loss Calculator.

An added bonus is this radiant heating system can be the primary heat source for the room so there’s no need for any additional heating or higher energy use.
