While Newark is the largest city in New Jersey, it’s also the second largest city in the New York metropolitan area about 8 miles west of Manhattan. It has the distinction of being one of the nation’s major air, shipping, and rail hubs. Newark falls within the transition between a humid subtropical and humid continental climate with hot, humid summers and cold, damp winters.
Between December and February temperatures consistently fall below freezing at night while the highs reach only the lower 40-degree Fahrenheit range. Although those temperatures may not be frigid, it’s the combination of cold and dampness that feels much colder. That outdoor chill extends to a home’s interior, but underfloor heating is an easy solution to warm up any room in the house.
Create an In-Home Spa with Radiant Heat in Your Bathroom Remodel
Adding floor heating to a large master bathroom was essential for these Newark homeowners who wanted to bring additional warmth and luxury to their lives. So they chose to warm up the elegant but cold tile in their newly remodeled bathroom by installing a 1.5- by 66-foot TempZone™ Flex Roll in their 123-square-foot bathroom for $940.00 at a cost of $9.49 per square foot (see floor plan).
In addition to the affordable cost of materials, check out the low operating cost. WarmlyYours’s Energy Use Calculator shows it only costs 41 cents a day to heat this bathroom for four hours and according to our Heat Loss Calculations, it costs approximately $100.00 to heat the bathroom during the coldest month of the year. Overall, it’s a very economical way to add the comfort and luxury of a radiantly heated bathroom with soothing warm floors while upgrading your home at the same time.
When remodeling your bathroom, you may want to consider adding a towel warmer or mirror defogger to create your own in-home spa. There are even shower floor and bench mat heating systems to complete the effect.

Although these Newark homeowners selected the TempZone™ Flex Roll, the comparison below shows their chosen option along with two alternatives featuring TempZone™ cable as noted.
The Option 1 TempZone™ Flex Roll costs a bit more for 100% coverage and 15 watts/sq ft² of heat while the Option 3 TempZone™ Cable offers the lowest cost but a bit more labor is required for installation. Each of the cable systems have another spacing option that can further reduce the price, but will affect the total watts/sq ft² of radiant heat. Also, in this instance, both the cable options provide 95 percent coverage versus 100 percent. The Newark homeowners chose Option 1 with the TempZone™ Flex Roll because they wanted the highest watts/sq ft² of heat in their bathroom.
