It’s the second largest city in the United States, is known as the entertainment capital of the world and as one place on the planet where people come exclusively to dream and create. Yes, we’re talking about the city of Los Angeles (LA)! The city’s ethnic diversity adds richness to the society while its sprawling metropolis and urban architecture continue to attract tourists and visitors. Los Angeles is the place to be, because who minds living in a city that’s also the center of the entertainment industry – with the majority of film and television production companies calling it home?

It comes as no surprise that Los Angeles spans a widely diverse geographic area. Lying in a large coastal basin, Los Angeles is surrounded on three sides by mountains reaching up to and over 10,000 feet (3,000 m). The median home value in Los Angeles is $470,000 and that’s more than the national average. Although this doesn’t come with a low cost, the upscale regions’ residents enjoy valuable upgrades for comfort and luxury. Angelenos experience an average temperature of 45 degrees Fahrenheit during January, the coldest month of the year. With temperatures remaining moderate all year-round and typically dropping at night, in-floor radiant heating is an ideal upgrade for people are used to warmer temperatures and for people who like to stay fully pampered. By warming up bathroom and kitchen floors during the night and early mornings, electric floor heating becomes the best way to indulge with comfort.
