Louisville Skyline at Night

The largest city in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the 30th-most populous city in the United States, Louisville is situated in the southeastern area of the state on the border between Kentucky and Indiana along the Ohio river. In addition to being the largest city in Kentucky, as of 2010, it also contained 17.1% of the total state population.

During the winter months, from December through February, the temperatures range from 27 degrees Fahrenheit to 46 degrees Fahrenheit according to currentresults.com. Winter typically consists of a mix of rain, sleet, and snow, with occasional heavy snowfall and icing.

Whether or not the winter season is extreme, a cold floor is still a cold floor. And cold floors are much more comfortable with a little radiant heat – in fact the whole room is - because in-floor heating radiates up warming the objects and the people in the room, not the air. That makes family gatherings in the kitchen a more cozy and pleasurable experience.

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 x 40’ Environ Flex Roll to heat a 123-square-foot kitchen. The heating roll fills 60 square feet of available floor space and costs $540, bringing the total cost per square foot to just $9.

Plus, it’s economical to operate. According to WarmlyYours’ Energy Use Calculator, it only costs 25 cents a day to operate the system for eight hours a day. For the entire year, the cost is about $80 and just $18.07 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 for this kitchen so additional heating costs will not be necessary, which is an added benefit.
