FloorHeat Radiant Floor Heating Systems

Home Improvement Project you can Truly Build On

FloorHeat floor heating systems are a home improvement project you can truly build on. As you would expect from Warmzone, they are an excellent radiant heating product you can use to heat select rooms or your entire home if you choose. So you can tackle your radiant heating needs, a room at a time if you need to, without disrupting your home or your lifestyle—not such an easy accomplishment with many home improvement projects.

Radiant floor heating systems are a terrific way to build your equity in your home along with some cutting edge, green technology. FloorHeat floor heating systems run on sustainable energy and can be easily integrated with existing wind or solar power. Plus radiant heat technology is equally soft on your home environment. There are no vents to clean, no dirty air circulating through your home, and no fossil fuels to burn. By nature, FloorHeat floor heating systems are clean, silent and virtually maintenance free, compared to traditional forced air systems.

Low-voltage floor heating system being installed

Because the heating element is self-regulating and installed directly under the floor surface, FloorHeat floor heating systems can be decidedly more efficient (up to 30 percent more) than other electric and hydronic systems, and up to 60 percent more efficient than conventional forced air systems. They’re quite conservative, only drawing the energy required to maintain your home’s ideal temperature, so they’re a very efficient choice for home heating.

FloorHeat semi-conductive polymer heating elements can be used for a wide variety of heating applications. This flexible, thin heating element features an extremely low profile that does not affect floor buildup, weight loads, or flooring choices, circumstances potentially complicating your project. And it can be safely cut to size on the work site for a variety of applications, from the straightforward to oddly-sized/shaped areas. And FloorHeat heating elements can be placed directly under any non-conductive floor covering, from carpet, to ceramic tile, hardwood and slate for safe, even and efficient heat distribution.

FloorHeat is a great low-voltage product that can be easily installed under existing floors by accessing the floor joists from below. Available in 9- and 12-inch widths, the polymer heating element can be stapled and nailed through for easy installation. Once the layout is determined, you’re essentially a few easy steps away from radiant heated flooring in you home. Simply cut the element to appropriate length, make the electrical connections, and run the wires to the terminal board(s) and transformer. (It is important to have an electrician perform all the system wiring to ensure the warranty is valid.) Then secure the elements to the subfloor with adhesive, staples, or pegs and cover to trade practices and then place insulation to help direct the heat efficiently upwards to the floor.

Warmzone FilmHeat Floor Heating Systems: Evolving the Way You Heat Your Home

What if you could heat an entire room, or even a home, for that matter, using a simple roll of film? Believe it or not, Warmzone has once again outdone the competition with a roll of film that’s amazingly durable, thin and flexible that can do just that. Like all Warmzone radiant heated floor solutions, FilmHeat can be nailed or stapled to the subfloor. Its slim proportions make for incredibly easy, unobtrusive installation under laminate surfaces.

The thin FilmHeat heating element

FilmHeat floor heating systems are composed of three elements. The film element works with a power unit and activation device to deliver fast, efficient heat to any laminate surface in your home. Much like a forced-air system, the power unit, or “brains” of the system, communicates with a thermostat linked to sensors. Strategically installed in the floor, the sensors “sense” the temperature of the room and relay that information to the power unit to activate the system. This system is fully automated, responding to fluctuations in room temperature as they occur to deliver and maintain even, consistent heat in any room.

In addition to being incredibly thin, the FilmHeat floor heating system is incredibly safe and can be installed in retrofit applications. You just need to be able to access the floor joists from below. FilmHeat is also one of the most efficient floor heating systems on the market.

The lightweight heating element makes FilmHeat particularly easy to install. The elements paper-thin quality allows can be easily cut on site, and requires no floor buildup. So you can install it without major renovation, which is incredibly good news if you’re a first-time do-it-yourselfer contemplating a radiant heated floor home improvement project.

If you’re hesitating on cost, initial installation costs involving FilmHeat floor heating systems are low. Of course the ease of installation makes the cost for do-it-yourselfers even lower. And like all Warmzone radiant heated flooring solutions, the system relies on a sustainable heat source, electricity, so it can run for mere pennies on the dollar.

And in a time when the popularity of green living is growing, the FilmHeat floor warming system allows you to significantly reduce the usage of your primary heating system to realize greater energy savings while lowering your monthly heating bills. To move you even further off of the grid, the system can also be run by solar and wind power sources. It’s a positive contribution to your environment you can feel really good about.

In Search of the Best Radiant Heat Solutions Provider

Looking for a good supplier of radiant heat systems for your next project? While there are lots of folks out there, it didn’t take me long to narrow the field down to just one. Before I divulge the winner, I’ll share the criteria that helped frame my final decision:
