Luxury Home Heating Amenities

Spring is finally here, and that means spring cleaning, which is a great time for small in-home projects. There’s no better way to spruce up your home than adding some amenities to keep it warm and welcoming all year long, especially when the weather gets cool. At Warmzone, there are more radiant heat options than heated flooring, and they can be used to enhance your comfort in any area of your home. Warmzone offers useful state-of-the-art bathroom and kitchen amenities that make a spring update or DIY project. Warmzone’s amenities are not only simple to install but can add luxurious comfort to your home life.

One of Warmzone’s popular amenities, especially for kitchens, is the FeelsWarm® Stick-on countertop heaters. This discreet, elegant heating solution keeps any countertop area warm, comfortable and inviting. Warmzone’s FeelsWarm countertop heaters can be installed on kitchen islands, counters, vanities, overhangs, office desks, bars, or even office applications such as reception desks. The thin heating element (only .025-inch thick) sticks to the underside of the counter making install painless, and the perfect day project for any homeowner.

Each system includes a thermal controller and low-voltage heating element. These heating mats operate with a passive warming system, which means once the heater is activated it slowly warms up the countertop. The heaters are designed to gradually warm the countertops about 20-25 degrees over a period of about 90 minutes. This slow warming process – and lack of temperature pulsing – is a safety feature that prevents shocking the stone.

The countertop heaters with FeelsWarm technology are also very efficient. The cost to operate a 4-square foot countertop heater continuously is about the same as using a 75-watt light bulb, keeping operating costs at a minimum – about 20-25 cents a day.

The heating mats are available in several standard sizes, but customers can also custom order a countertop heating system to fit their unique counters or island. No matter the size or shape of your countertop, these heating mats can be configured to fit angles, curves, or any shape you may need.  Warmzone FeelsWarm Technology is a great way to add safe, comfortable heat to any stone countertop surface.

If your bathroom could use a refresh, another great amenity offered by Warmzone are the Runtal towel warmers and bathroom radiators. These attractive units are energy efficient and aesthetically pleasing, adding luxury and convenience to the bathroom. There are multiple model types and sizes to ensure customers find the best match for their bathroom.

These efficient towel warmers are also designed to provide warmth for bathrooms as well. These radiators are 120 volts, and come with a direct wire installation, or a plug-in version that has a unique five-setting digital control, including a timer for up to 3 hours. Not only do these radiators keep your bathroom and towels warm, but they also offer the benefit of keeping the area dry, reducing the risk of mold and mildew in bathrooms.

Another great option for bathrooms are Warmzone’s ClearMirror™ fog-free bathroom mirrors. These heated mirrors come with a low voltage transformer and a thin, low voltage pad that is mounted on the reverse side of the mirror. These panels slowly heat your mirror to prevent mist and fog from forming, so you can go through your morning routine hassle free. These mirrors also have the option of adding panels of built-in LED lights to add more light to your bathroom. Warmzone’s ClearMirrors are made in the USA, and are designed for installation in vanities, bathrooms and showers.

Fog-free shower mirror with LED lights

When it comes to shower installations, there are options available for any need. Warmzone’s Shower ClearMIrror is a beautiful, simple, practical fog free mirror that is perfect for facial grooming and shaving. This model mounts flush with the shower tile and comes in various sizes. The mirrors are typically wired directly to the bathroom light switch for convenient use. For an even more elegant touch, Warmzone also offers the ShowerLite ClearMIrror. In addition to the mist-free operation, these stunning mirrors include the added benefit of LED light panels built into the sides of the mirror that simulate natural daylight and are rated for 70,000 hours.

Warmzone’s Body ClearMirror or The Grand Body ClearMirror measures at 20×36, with a heated area of 16×30 inches, while the Grand Body ClearMirror is 5 feet tall and 2½ feet wide. Both mirrors include LED lighting and add a luxurious feel to any bathroom. All shower mirrors are mounted flush to the shower surface to ensure a professional look and feel. These mirrors can also be custom modified if homeowners have special requests.

If heating a vanity mirror is a better option, Warmzone also offers the Original ClearMIrror Vanity Mirror, ClearLite Vanity Mirror, or the Studio Series ClearMIrror. The original ClearMIrror is a 120-volt mirror with the defogger attached, and an excellent, affordable option for any homeowner. Warmzone’s ClearLIte Vanity Mirror is perfect for those looking for a more modern look and is installed in high-end hotels all over the world. This unit includes side or top mounted LED panels, and comes in a standard 24×36 size, or can be custom designed. Warmzone’s Studio Series ClearMirrors are a beautiful top-of-the-line option that includes full low-iron glass matting and a surface mounted 18”x 30 x ¼-inch beveled mirror. This mirror can be ordered in multiple colors, and each is custom made to specifications.

Warmzone Offers Countertop Heaters

Introducing Innovative Stick-on Countertop Heaters

Add a new level of elegant comfort to your home’s most popular gathering place – the kitchen. Warmzone’s countertop heaters with FeelWarm® technology feature flexible low-voltage heating panels that conveniently stick to the bottom of your countertop. The countertop heaters adhere to the underside of the stone or they can be placed on a support substrate (compressed) prior to the countertop being placed.

The innovative countertop heating system uses a passive warming system to slowly warm the stone by 20-25 degrees. This measured warming approach and lack of temperature pulsing prevents any shock to the stone. These heating panels are designed specifically for warming stone countertops without introducing a risk of cracking the stone. Warmzone’s countertop heaters are also easy to install. While contractors installing new countertops are typically involved with installing the heaters, most homeowners install the panels for their existing countertop. The simple peel-and-stick heating panels can be installed by homeowners with basic “handyman” skills.

The low-voltage countertop heating mats are ultra thin (between .015″ and .025″ thick) and are custom-engineered for each stone including shape, wattage, and electrical input location. The heating mat is designed to overcome the poor thermal characteristics of stone so that an even heated surface is created and that the front edge is the same temperature as the center of the heated zone. The system is also very economical. Most homeowners leave their heated countertop running at all times, resulting in a cost of less than $0.20 a day.

Applications

Warmzone’s FeelsWarm countertop heaters are commonly installed to warm kitchen countertops and islands and bars (with overhang), desks, bathroom counters, bars, vanities, reception desks and any indoor application where stone is being considered. The ideal heating solution is to only warm the overhang, or edge of the counter where most people touch the counter. Therefore the most ideal placement for the heating panel is along the underside of the counter’s edge to about 12-14 inches deep. The countertop heaters efficiently warm all types of stone, engineered stone and concrete countertops.

Designed for easy installation, the heater’s shape and size is configured specifically for the customer’s unique counter and corbels, whether overhanging or resting on framework, angled or curved. The heating mats are an easy do-it-yourself installation that safely and effectively warms the stone.

The heaters are available in four popular sizes and can also be custom-designed to fit your layout needs. The gentle warmth safely adds luxurious comfort to kitchens, bathrooms, offices and more.

Homeowners can add an elegant upgrade to their home or office with the easy-to-install heaters. The low-voltage countertop heaters can be discreetly mounted to the bottom of counter overhangs (or under countertops) to provide safe, comfortable warmth to the most popular gathering place in homes today –the kitchen.

The countertop heaters feature easy peel and stick installation. Because they are under 0.024-inches thick they can be discreetly mounted under the counter near the edge to provide warmth to the most commonly touched areas.

FeelsWarm countertop heating technology utilizes a passive warming system to slowly warm the stone, taking 90 minutes to raise the temperature about 20-25°F. This slow warming approach and lack of temperature pulsing protects your beautiful counters by eliminating shock to the stone.

The innovative heaters are designed for counters with or without overhangs, and are available in several standard rectangular shapes as well as custom sizes and shapes. In addition to being custom designed to accommodate the unique shape of your stone counters, the heaters can also be custom-engineered to accommodate your wattage and electrical input location.

For customers who are installing a new countertop where the top of the cabinet has a solid substrate, Warmzone offers a customized heating mat that compresses between the substrate and the stone. The compressed heaters are designed to withstand the weight and compression of any stone countertop, which can be as high as 30 pounds per square foot. Plus, the mats are designed to comply with uneven compression forces due to variances in the wood such as gaps, raised cabinet edges, embedded supports and non-smooth bottom surfaces. The workmanship of Warmzone’s FeelsWarm heating mats is second to none. The ductile’, or soft/pliable construction of the heaters further enables them to bend and conform instead of breaking during a compression action.

No matter what your countertop heating needs are, Warmzone now offers an effective warming solution. The thin, low-voltage, plug-and-play heating mat installs in minutes and can be plugged into standard outlets without the need for special wiring. Simply peel off the backing and then stick the thin panel to the underside of the countertop.
