Phoenix Rising: Radiant Living with Cost-Effective Floor Heating

Phoenix Skyline-Aerial View

In addition to being the capital and largest city in Arizona, Phoenix also has the distinction of being the most populous state capital in the U.S. and the sixth most populous city nationwide. Phoenix is the anchor of the metropolitan area known as the Valley of the Sun and part of the Salt River Valley.

During the winter months in Phoenix, from December through January, the temperatures can drop into the 40 degree Fahrenheit range overnight. But there’s a way to beat that desert chill with radiant underfloor heating.

A Radiant Phoenix Living Room with Economical Floor Heating

You may be familiar with the term "phoenix rising," but in this case it's not the mythological bird. It’s a Phoenix living room with rising (radiating) heat. This Phoenix homeowner chose to add radiant floor heating to his living room remodel since it was both a family gathering place and where they frequently entertained guests. He purchased a WarmlyYours TempZone™ flex roll floor heating system to keep the space comfortably cozy during the evening when temperatures in the desert cool down. The 3-ft x 43-ft TempZone™ Flex Roll fills 129 square feet of floor space and costs $1161.00, which equates to just $9.00 per square foot. The Flex Roll is easy to cut and turn to effectively fill the floor space with 15 watts per square foot of soothing radiant heat. (see floor plan)

Annually, that comes out to just $8.99, based on WarmlyYours’ Heat Loss Calculator. Another bonus is that the floor heating system can be the primary heat source for this room, so there won’t be any additional heating bills.
