Kansas City, or K.C. as it is often called, is the largest city, and the second largest metropolitan area, in the state of Missouri. As the central city of the Kansas City metropolitan area, it straddles the Kansas–Missouri border near the convergence of the Kansas and Missouri rivers. Even though it’s not known for extremely cold winter temperatures, the coldest nights in Kansas City can still drop to 0 degrees Fahrenheit (-18 degrees Celsius) or lower based on data from currentresults.com. The city normally has 21 days a year when the temperature never rises above freezing. The coldest days occur from November to March, and are most common in January. That’s where radiant floor heating can come in and bring both comfort and luxury to a Kansas City home.
Did you know that the median home value in Kansas City is $108,100? According to Zillow.com Kansas City home values have gone up 6.5 percent over the past year and are predicted to rise another 3.8 percent within the next year. The real estate market is hovering between a buyer’s and seller’s market so adding radiant heat can either add value to attract prospective homebuyer’s or become one of the top projects a new homeowner undertakes to add affordable luxury to their new space.
See How Radiant Floor Heating Was Incorporated into this Bathroom Remodel
This Kansas City homeowner decided to install radiant heating when remodeling her 93 square foot bathroom to add comfort to the morning routine and also improve her homes’ resale value. She chose to heat the bathroom floors with 300 feet of 120-volt TempZone™ Cable for just $480. That amounts to $6.40 per square foot. By adding a SmartStat™ programmable thermostat for $169, it brought the total to less than $700. (See floor plan below).
When evaluating a floor heating system, it’s also important to consider the operating cost. The cost to operate this system is reasonably low. It costs just 22 cents to heat the bathroom for 4 hours a day, according to WarmlyYours' Energy Use Calculator. This tool factors in the average kWh cost in Kansas City, which is slightly less than 11 cents. During the coldest month of the year, it costs approximately $58.19 to run this system according to WarmlyYours' Heat Loss Calculator. However, this cost is just an estimate and most likely will be much lower depending on the primary heating source of the home.
