Warm Up Your Soles with Warmzone Radiant Floor Heating

ComfortTile, In-Slab, HeatShield, FloorHeat, RetroHeat and FilmHeat all share several commonalities. They’re not just radiant heated floors, they’re industry leading floor heating systems offering the fit, flexibility and quality along with a solid reputation for well outperforming the rest of the industry’s competition.

With so many options from Warmzone, radiant heated floors are truly a practical home improvement project. Whether you heat a small area or an entire home, there are a wide variety of products available to choose from. Some of the best include:

  • ComfortTile is well-suited to heating tile floors. Available by the spool or preconfigured mats, at 3/16-inch it’s so thin there is very little floor build up.
  • In-Slab heat cable for concrete slabs is rugged enough for installation in new concrete slab applications to heat tile, hardwood and even carpet.
  • FloorHeat is a unique self-regulating, semi-conductive polyethylene heating element that can be installed directly under any material, ranging from hardwood floors to roofing.
  • HeatShield Panels feature ½-inch-thick polystyrene insulation covered with a thin, specially profiled aluminum with grooves for the heat cable to optimize heat cable performance by reflecting the heat upwards to the floor.
  • RetroHeat uses a thin film heating element that is installed (stapled up) between the floor joists. Bat insulation is then stapled up over the heating element to help direct heat upwards towards the floor to heat virtually all types of floor surfaces.

You can pair these options with Warmzone’s advanced, fully interactive thermostat with touch technology and energy monitoring for radiant heating. The innovative controller features a display that allows you to view a graph of your recorded energy consumption with actual costs.

This advanced energy monitoring feature tells you exactly what you are paying for your radiant floor heating system, and helps you save money by periodically recommending ideal temperature adjustments. So you can monitor your consumption as you go, making adjustments by adding rooms to changing traffic patterns from room to room.

Besides these great products, there are numerous benefits to radiant heat. The biggest one, of course, is the precise nature of radiant heated floors. Unlike traditional forced air systems, you can set the desired temperature in each room or zone, making radiant floor heating extremely energy efficient.

Also obvious, the health benefits that come with radiant heated floors. They don’t blow dust and allergens from vents through your home. Reliable, maintenance free radiant heated floors can be installed discreetly and easily under a variety of surfaces. And they can be easily customized to heat hard to reach areas efficiently, whether a small isolated area or your entire home.

Of course there’s more. Check out how Warmzone’s great radiant heat products, including the all new fully interactive thermostat, can warm up your home more efficiently. Call 888.488.9276 to explore the options of installing radiant heat in your home.

Making the Installation of Radiant Heat Easy

“Old School” Customer Service from the Pros at Warmzone

Every time I walked across my cold kitchen floor, I reminded myself to check into the possibilities of radiant heat. I kept hearing wonderful things about how affordable and comfortable radiant heated floors are, but I’m a procrastinator. I was content to search for my slippers or brave the chill of the kitchen linoleum and tiled bathroom floors for one more winter.

Radiant floor heating mats being installed

Unfortunately, the decision to install (or not to install) radiant heat is not mine to make alone. I’m married. Now most of us guys like to pretend that we can endure a little discomfort and survive with the bare minimum in terms of home amenities, but a part of us would also like our homes to feel like a luxurious castle. And let’s face it; we want to keep our wives happy!

I’m not saying that every wife out there is a proponent of radiant heated floors, but I know that mine was constantly pushing to have heated floors installed. So finally I relented, and told her “I’d check it out.” (I figured that would buy me some more time to procrastinate.)

But it didn’t take long to find some unbiased information online. I did a few searches on the Internet and found some good information, which I read. Soon, I narrowed down a list of top radiant heat providers, and I finally ended up dealing with a company called Warmzone. Three things stuck out for me that helped me make my decision. Warmzone’s wide product selection, their customer service and installation support were big selling points for me.

The intimidation of taking on such a home improvement project was daunting, but the anxiety quickly subsided after talking with them. I wanted to leave the design and all the technical stuff in the hands of experts. I was assured that I could do much of the heat cable installation, but experts would take care of the wiring and other technical aspects. (I sure wasn’t about to take on the whole project by myself.) I felt confident with the installers and the Warmzone team. They’ve been around a long time, and I knew they wouldn’t leave until my system was up and running as advertised.

After receiving a detailed CAD design of my floors from Warmzone, I learned exactly what to expect from the system and what the power requirements would be. Then, as the installation process began, a support technician from Warmzone was on the phone, helping us every step of the way. He took his time explaining things and made sure that the installation was done properly. Warmzone personnel even stayed with us as we tested the system to make sure we were completely satisfied. Now that was “old school” customer service. Having them provide us with the most trusted system, customized for our needs, and then assisting us every step of the way after the sale was reassuring. They stayed with us from beginning to end.

It’s nice to know there are still companies out there like Warmzone. These guys care about getting the job done right. Thanks to them, my wife is happy and we’re thrilled with the warm floors. Perhaps the best part of all this is that I was able to stay within budget on this project. Thank you Warmzone.

Radiant Heated Floors: A Solid Home Improvement Investment

If you’re looking to increase the overall appeal as well as the resale value of your home, retrofitting a bathroom or recreational room with radiant floor heat can help. Add to that the benefit of reducing your dependency on fossil fuels associated with forced air systems, and you’ve hit one out of the park in terms of savings.

Radiant heat is a very efficient way to heat your home. Why? Warmth generated by electric radiant heat radiates up through the floor and transfers heat through objects for more consistent, even heat distribution. With traditional forced air systems that kick on and off in an effort to maintain the desired temperature, the heat quickly rises, and you’re subject to the unpleasant effects of drafts throughout your home.

How much can you save in heating costs, just by keeping it warm and cozy right down to the floor boards? Radiant heated floors can save you up to 50 percent in costs compared to a traditional forced air system, and can outlast a forced air system by as much as 15 years. Unlike forced air systems, the standard thermostat controls can be programmed to control different zones of your home, so you can time heating, room by room, to respond to the way you live your life.

With no moving parts, electric heated floors are virtually maintenance free. There are no vents to clean or filters to replace. Unlike forced air systems, there’s no noise, dust, or allergens blowing through your home – just quiet, comfortable warmth.

If you are ambitious, you can install much of the radiant heated floor system yourself. (But it is important that a qualified electrician perform all the wiring.) Depending on the pre-existing construction and the system you choose, installation can be relatively easy. Warmzone offers a variety of safe, proven radiant heat flooring solutions for your home, along with the service and support you’ll need to complete the installation yourself, including personal, expert installation support and resources such as system diagrams, installation manuals and more.

You may or may not be surprised to know that radiant heat is affordable. Radiant heat is a relative newcomer to the home heating arena. And that makes it more of an “exotic” home improvement project that will attract a lot of interest from neighbors and perspective home buyers alike. But by no means is it costly. For a few hundred bucks, you can upgrade a bathroom or foyer, and significantly downgrade your heat bill.

If going green is your goal, you also score major points with radiant heat. Not only can you improve the air quality of your home while reducing your dependence on fossil fuels, you can also sync a radiant floor heating system with solar or wind power to help you make your move off the grid.

If you’re contemplating an equity building home improvement project, you may want to consider adding radiant heat to your list of options. To learn more about a viable radiant heat system for your home, call Warmzone at 888.488.9276 or visit www.warmzone.com.

Beat Next Year’s Snowfall Now with a Radiant Heat Snow Melting Solution

Spring has sprung, and you’re undoubtedly ready to leave the ice and snow behind. You can leave it behind permanently by installing an electric radiant heat solution for your driveway and walkways. And right now couldn’t be a better time. The spring and summer months are a great time to take advantage of better prices and install a radiant heated driveway before the winter rush.

What’s really great about radiant heat systems is their cost relative to other home improvement projects. Heating your walkways and driveways doesn’t have to involve a completely new pour or tear up of these areas. Retrofits are particularly adaptable to asphalt driveway heating. Choose Warmzone and you’ll also have a seasoned team of radiant heat professionals in your corner that can take your requirements and budget, and turn both into a system that exceeds your expectations.

When all is said and done, the initial cost of installing radiant heat in your walkway or driveway could more than pay for itself in the money you’ll stand to save. Taking on the added expense of a typical snow removal service can cost you. In most cases, you’re paying for a specific period of time, or package. Depending on the amount of snowfall, there’s a good chance you’ll never even benefit from the services you’ve paid for. Add to that the hassle of waiting for your service to show up. In a particularly heavy snow storm, the wait could be quite long.

Whether this is your first time or you’re an experienced do-it-yourselfer, if you’re willing to take on the project, you’ll find Warmzone has many tested and true options for snow removal that won’t have you scratching your head at installation time. From ClearZone radiant snow melting mats to heating cable off the spool, Warmzone can match your skill level and ambition. In addition to a wide variety of products, Warmzone also offers personal installation support as well as installation manuals. Detailed system design layouts are also provided to ensure that all the power and installation issues are addressed prior to any installation taking place.

What’s really cool—you’ll have a snow removal system that does the work for you. All Warmzone snow melting systems are fully automated. They feature a high-tech snow sensor that can detect the slightest changes in temperature and precipitation in anticipation of a snow event, so the system is working just as the first snowflake hits the ground. The best part—you can sit inside enjoying that morning cup of joe to the sound of your neighbor’s snow blowers and shovels because your radiant heated driveway is already clear and dry.

Of course the other benefit of installing radiant heat now is the mild conditions spring and summer provide. And the timing is perfect if your plans include a concrete or asphalt pour. So why not beat the inclement weather with a radiant heated snow melting solution?
