The Cost to Optimize Your Living Room with Radiant Heat

Radiant floor heating in a modern living room

In this day and age, it can be difficult to pull families away from their smartphones and tablets. We’ve all seen — and even experienced firsthand — that mesmerizing stare that takes over when you’re checking email, scrolling through social media posts, or playing a game. These devices can be hard to put down.

Nevertheless, when it comes to family, many strive to make some “technology-free” time to connect with each other. To gather everyone together, they might schedule a weekly family game night or simply set aside an hour to talk in a comfortable setting. The living room plays the perfect host for such events.

Living rooms are typically outfitted with cushy couches for lounging and relaxing, but these rooms can also include in-floor radiant heating in order to create the warmest, most comfortable environment for families. And the cost of installing heated floors in your living room might be less than you’d think.

To heat a 248-square-foot living room (see floor plan) with tile, stone or hardwood flooring in place, only one TempZone™ Flex Roll is required. The 3- by 70-foot roll can be cut and turned to cover about 85 percent of the surface of the room. Of course, the heat emitted from the roll will evenly warm the entire room.

A custom floor plan can show you how to install electric radiant heated floors in your room.

The total price of this TempZone™ heating system with a SmartStat™ thermostat is $1,849, which is likely well below the cost of your cozy couches. By itself, the thermostat costs $169 and the Flex Roll costs $1,680.

If you look at the price in terms of square footage, the cost of the radiant heating materials (not including the thermostat) is only $8 per square foot. That could be less than the price of one of your board games!

To determine how much it would cost to upgrade your living room — or any other room in your home — with in-floor radiant heat, send us a floor plan! The WarmlyYours team will get back to you the next day with a customized installation plan and a free quote.
