Warming Up a Hamilton Kitchen Floor with Low Cost Radiant Heat

Hamilton,ON Skyline

Hamilton is a Canadian port city on the western tip of Lake Ontario. The city is divided by the Niagara Escarpment, a huge, forested ridge locally called "the mountain" and filled with conservation areas and waterfalls. One of the oldest and longest marked hiking trails in Canada, the Bruce Trail follows the edge of the escarpment and runs through some of the most populated areas in Ontario. In fact, one of the side trails leads to Niagara Falls.

Although, Hamilton weather is moderate when compared to most of Canada, it typically has 129 days a year when the temperature is at 0 degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit) or below. That’s over a third of the year when it’s freezing outside. Adding affordable underfloor heating is an easy way to warm up those cold floors in your home.

A Radiant Kitchen Reflects the Warmth of these Hamilton Homeowners

Since the kitchen was the hub of activity for their family, these Hamilton Homeowners chose to upgrade their kitchen to modernize and better suit their family’s lifestyle. They had friends who had radiant floor heating and each time they visited they marveled at the comfort and decided they wanted it for their own kitchen. Plus, they knew it would serve their family well since the kitchen was the most used room in their home. They chose a TempZone cable floor heating system as it was an affordable option to take the chill off their new tile flooring. See floor plan.

Another economic benefit is that the cost to operate the system is relatively low. It costs 90 cents a day to heat the kitchen for 8 hours, based on WarmlyYours Operating Cost Calculator. This tool factors in the average kWh cost in Hamilton of approx. 12 cents. During the coldest month of the year, it costs just $29.84 to run the system according to WarmlyYours' Heat Loss Calculator. A bonus is that the system can be a primary heat source for the room so there won’t be any additional heating expense.
