Columbus, OH Skyline at sunsetIt’s well known that Columbus is the capital of Ohio and the largest city in Ohio. In fact, it falls just behind San Francisco in terms of population. The city boasts a population of nearly 836,000 residents, according to Wikipedia.org. However, what many people might not know is how intelligent the city is. For the past three consecutive years, the Intelligent Community Forum named Columbus as one of the most intelligent cities in the world.

In such a smart city, it’s no wonder that the housing market is growing. According to Zillow, home values in Columbus rose 4.6 percent in the past year, and they’re expected to rise another 2.2 percent in the next year. However, it’s a buyer’s market, which means that sellers will need to differentiate their homes with upgrades in order to get a leg up on the competition.

In a city where the temperature never rises above freezing for about 27 days during the winter, radiant floor heating is an upgrade that will enhance the value of a home. According to currentresults.com, some winter nights can even drop as low as 0 degrees Fahrenheit or below. Between November and March, the low is generally between 23 and 36 degrees Fahrenheit, and the high is generally between 40 and 53 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes Columbus the ideal market for radiant heat.

In-Floor Heat in the Kitchen

One of the most popular rooms in which to add radiant floor heat is the kitchen, because it’s where all of the cooking, entertaining and more take place. In this instance (see floor plan), the homeowner selected a 1.5- by 48-foot TempZone™ Flex Roll to heat a 130-square-foot kitchen. The heating roll fills 72 square feet of available floor space and costs $720, bringing the total cost per square foot to just $10.

Plus, it’s economical to operate. According to WarmlyYours’ Energy Use Calculator, it only costs 45 cents a day to operate the system for eight hours a day. For the entire year, the cost is about $90 and less than $20 during the coldest month of the year, according to WarmlyYours’ Heat Loss Calculator.

The Heat Loss Calculator tool factors in details such as the desired room temperature, sealing factor, surrounding rooms and insulation to determine whether the electric floor heating system can be the sole source of heat for the room. In this case, the system can be the primary heat source.
