Believe it or not, Vancouver, a city on the mainland of British Columbia, Canada, has consistently been named as one of the top five worldwide cities for livability and quality of life. With its scenic views, mild climate and friendly people, Vancouver is world-renowned for its popular tourist attractions. British Columbia’s Greater Vancouver attracts people from around the world who are drawn to its natural beauty, multicultural diversity, health-conscious lifestyle and economic prosperity. Located on the western half of the Burrard Peninsula, Vancouver is bounded to the north by English Bay and the Burrard Inlet and to the south by the Fraser River.
Vancouver’s real estate market has seen an increase in demand, resulting in an increase in property prices as well. The city’s home values have gone up 11.2% over the past year and are expected to rise 4.9% within the next year. Being one of the most expensive Canadian cities, the median home value in Vancouver is $237,900.
People in Vancouver experience an average winter temperature of 6 degrees Celsius (43 degrees Fahrenheit) in December with the low just over the freezing point. The city's high latitude often results in earlier sunsets, making winters dark and leaving people with infrequent sunlight. With little sun to heat up the home exterior, electric floor heating is the perfect solution to warm up cold surfaces such as ceramic bathroom tiles.
Here’s How Adding Radiant Heating To Your Bathroom Does The Trick:
In this new homeowner’s case, adding radiant electric heat to a large Vancouver bathroom was very affordable and a great way for them to bring floor heating’s welcoming warmth and comfort to their morning routine. To incorporate floor warming, this Vancouver homeowner installed a 1.5- by 56-foot TempZone™ Flex Roll in their 145-square-foot bathroom for $798.00 at a cost of just $9.50 per square foot (see floor plan).
Now that you’ve learned the reasonable cost of materials, we figured you’d be interested in knowing the operating cost as well. WarmlyYours’ Energy Use Calculator shows it only costs 24 cents per day to heat this bathroom for four hours a day and according to our Heat Loss Calculations, it only costs $65.98 to heat the bathroom during January, the coldest month of the year. Best of all, the annual operating cost for the heated floor is $428.20 — a small price to pay for the comfort and luxury of a radiantly warm bathroom with soothing warm floors.
