Floor Heating Winners

Radiant floor heat offers clean, energy efficient, maintenance-free warmth. In addition to offering next-level comfort, these are just some of the benefits that have new builders installing these systems in record numbers. The flexibility of these systems gives builders a wide variety of custom options for both residential and commercial applications. The systems can be easily customized to meet the specific heating – and budget – needs of each customer.

In addition to heating entire homes, radiant heat can be easily tailored to complement one’s existing traditional heating system. Floor heating systems can be installed to add unmatched comfort to your favorite rooms, or warm trouble spots in your home that are notoriously difficult to heat. The systems grant homeowners with tremendous options for installing a precise and efficient means for optimizing comfort in the home.

While the features, performance and environmentally friendly aspects of radiant heat contribute to its surging popularity, one must also be aware that not all radiant floor heating systems are created equal. In fact, it may come as a surprise to some homeowners that there are so many different types of floor heating systems and technologies (such as electric and hydronic). But fear not; you don’t have to feel overwhelmed.

The floor heating options are easy to evaluate, and the variety helps to ensure that you’ll have the best solution for heating your specific floor type and layout. Having one of the largest selections of floor heating systems in the business, Warmzone® can ensure that each customer is matched with the ideal solution for their home. We offer free consultation, so feel free to call and learn more about the available systems. And rest assured that Warmzone carries only the most trusted and proven floor heating systems.

When determining which floor heating system is best for your home, the choice is influenced by the type of floor that you have. For example, if you’re looking to heat a floating floor, one of the most popular and highly recommended solutions is FilmHeat™. This innovative floor heating system utilizes a near paper-thin heating element (just 0.016-inch thick) that is laid out over the underlayment on the subfloor, and then the flooring is installed over the element. No alarms, special tools, or self-leveling compounds are needed. 

The system does not require mortar or adhesives, so there is virtually no floor buildup, and the heating element can be easily cut onsite. FilmHeat is designed specifically for installation under floating floors, but the versatile element can also be used to heat other floor types. (Talk to a floor heating expert to learn more.) A variation of the FilmHeat system (RetroHeat®) uses a similar heating element that can be installed between the floor joists to heat existing floors. The heating panels are stapled up between the joists and then Batt insulation is installed to direct all the heat upward to warm the floor. This is the most affordable option for heating floors without having to conduct any major remodeling.

Warmzone’s most popular electric floor heating system is the ComfortTile® system. The ComfortTile floor heating system is perhaps the most versatile, but is designed especially for heating ceramic tile, vinyl tile, marble, and stone floors. This proven system utilizes thin heat resistance cable that is available in individual lengths off the spool, or pre-spaced in mats that can be rolled out for quick, convenient installation. ComfortTile mats feature thin heat cable that is pre-spaced and affixed to a flexible mesh with an adhesive backing. The mat can be quickly rolled out over the area to be heated and secured to the subfloor. The mats are available in a variety of lengths, and are 18-inches wide and pre-terminated for use with 120V and 240V. The twin-conductor heating cable is made with premium materials, enabling ComfortTile heat cable to provide superior floor heating performance and fast response times. As one of the most versatile floor heating systems, ComfortTile can be effectively used to heat a wide range of other floors and various applications. This trusted floor heating cable also carries a 25-year warranty.

In-Slab™ heat cable is another popular option for those looking to efficiently heat basement floors and concrete slabs. This rugged cable is thicker than other floor heating cable because it is designed for installation during concrete pours. The cable is positioned in the area to be heated, and concrete is then applied. The In-Slab heat cable should remain about 2-inches from the surface of the concrete. Any type of flooring can then be installed over the concrete floor. This is one of the most affordable, and effective ways to heat cold basement floors, or any floors on concrete slabs.

Floor heating systems that use thin heat cable (I.e. ComfortTile) can also be used with a membrane system, such as Prodeso®. Prodeso membrane is an uncoupling and waterproofing system used for heating floors and other surfaces without expansion joints in the screed. The flexible membrane has pre-engineered grooves for the heat cable, and is laid out directly over the subfloor before the tile or other flooring is installed. The Prodeso underlayment membrane, heat cable and flooring can be installed the same day. The floor heating system has a minimal floor buildup of less than ¼-inch.

Warmzone offers several other types of floor heating systems, including low-voltage floor heating systems, hydronic (water-based) systems, and more. For more details about the many proven options that are available, call and speak with a floor heating expert today, at 888.488.9276.

Floor Heating Systems; What’s the Difference?

A Guide to Finding the Best Radiant Heat System for Your Home or Business

As growing numbers of consumers search for clean, renewable-energy heating solutions, more home and business owners are turning to radiant heat. Being the most efficient heating technology available, the benefits of installing a radiant heat system are tough to deny. Not only is radiant floor heating growing in popularity, but energy-efficient driveway heating systems are also becoming more popular. The efficiency and reliability of radiant heat have made it a logical choice for new construction, as well as remodeling applications.

Certainly, radiant heat has earned its rise to the top of home heating and snow melting options. Given the public’s emphasis on clean, renewable heating sources, radiant heat is becoming commonplace in new construction projects. Naturally, the increasing demand for interior and exterior radiant heat systems has resulted in a proliferation of radiant heat products and system providers. But what products are best? What should consumers be looking for? How does one differentiate one floor heating system from another?

Whether you’re looking to install a heated driveway, a radiant floor heating system, or a roof de-icing system, be sure to work with an established provider. You’ll want to deal with people who have a lot of experience designing and providing radiant heat systems. You’re making a significant investment, so you’ll want to deal with professionals who have been around the block a few times. And you’ll want to have a provider who also provides complete system design and installation support. But why are there so many different types of heated floors?

Because there is a wide variety of flooring options for homeowners, it only follows that there are several different types of floor heating systems. The key is to match your floor heating system with your flooring. Some floor heating systems are designed to heat tile floors, while others are better suited for warming hardwood or floating floors. The type of subfloor you have as well as the insulation (if any) can also impact the performance of your radiant floor heating system. Speak with a Warmzone floor heating expert to learn more about your options.

As a leading provider of radiant heat solutions, Warmzone offers a wide range of proven floor heating systems. One of the most popular, and versatile, is the ComfortTile floor heating cable and mats. ComfortTile features thin heat cable that is available off the spool as well as pre-spaced in mats, and is one of the most popular floor heating systems on the market. The ComfortTile system is typically the best choice for heating tile, stone and luxury vinyl tile floors. The Prodeso membrane system can also be used in conjunction with the ComfortTile cable. This ensures ideal cable spacing and offers protection from shifting and cracking, and provides waterproofing for the substrate in the case of overlaying on cracked or imperfectly cured floors with a risk of vapor stress.

FilmHeat floor heating systems are designed for easy installation under laminate and floating floors. The FilmHeat heating element features a thin, flexible panel that is only 0.16-inch thick. Installation requires no floor buildup. There is no need for mortar or self-leveling compounds. The heating element is laid out over the underlayment and secured, and then the electrical connections are made and the floating floor is installed directly over the panels. These thin “film” heating elements can also be used to heat existing floors. The RetroHeat floor heating panels are stapled up between the floor joists and then batt insulation is placed over the element, directing all the heat upward to heat the floor. This is a popular choice for homeowners looking to add luxurious radiant heat to their existing floors.

In-Slab heat cable features a durable heating cable that is installed directly in concrete slabs. This floor heating system is ideal for taking the chill out of basements. It is also one of the most effective and efficient floor heating systems available.

Another excellent option for heating laminate, carpet, engineered wood and floating floors is the FoilHeat system. This system features thin heat cable that is sandwiched between two layers of reinforced aluminum, which reflects and optimizes the heat. Warmzone also offers the low-voltage FloorHeat STEP system. This popular radiant heating solution utilizes thin, self-regulating polymer heating panels that make it ideal for heating hardwood floors. The installation requires virtually no floor buildup, and in addition to heating hardwood, the versatile system can be used to heat other floor types, including carpet, laminates, and tile. The semi-conductive polyethylene heating element is available in rolls 9 and 12-inches wide.

Warmzone carries several other trusted floor heating solutions, including hydronic floor heating systems. With each system, Warmzone includes free installation training, technical support, and professional system design. When you work with Warmzone, you’ll be working with experienced professionals who stand with you throughout the installation process.

Home Heating with Radiant Heat

Radiant Heat – the Most Efficient Heating Technology Today

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), prices for heating homes with fuels from natural gas to heating oil have risen to multiyear highs. With the demand for energy outpacing the growth in supply, homeowners can now expect to see a significant increase in their monthly heating bills this winter. In fact, with nearly half of U.S. households relying on natural gas for heat, those homeowners can expect an average cost increase of 30 percent this year when compared to last year’s cold months.

With rising costs, it’s important for heating systems to be as efficient as possible. Traditional forced-air systems are the most common heating solution, but unfortunately, they are notoriously inefficient. Advances have been made in furnace technology, yet still, the best systems boast an efficiency of only 80 to 90 percent.

Given the impending increase in home heating expenses, today’s homeowners are focusing on more efficient ways to heat the home – as well as ways to supplement their current heating system. If an alternate heating method also produces an increase in comfort, so much the better.

Whether you’re looking for comfort or efficiency, or both, radiant heat fits the bill. As the most efficient technology for heating homes and businesses today, radiant heat is fast becoming the heating system of choice for new homeowners, as well as commercial buildings.

Ninety-nine percent of the energy used for heating floors translates directly into heat. No other heating technology comes close to matching this efficiency. And the comfort produced by a radiant floor heating system is rich and luxurious. One must experience radiant heat to fully appreciate its splendor.

Not all floor heating systems are created equal. Some are designed for heating hardwood floors, while others are designed for heating tile, or vinyl tile or laminate flooring. Feel free to call and speak with a floor heating expert at Warmzone. We will gladly go over all the options and suggest the systems that would be best for heating your home – without any pushy sales pressure.

As an industry leader, Warmzone offers one of the largest selections of radiant floor heating solutions on the market. Our heating elements range from thin heat cable and mats to paper-thin panels, flexible low-voltage polymer panels, in-slab heating cable, and even systems that can be installed under existing floors. The thin panels are installed between the floor joists, allowing homeowners to add warmth to rooms without tearing up the current flooring.

Despite the varied electric and hydronic (water based) systems that Warmzone offers, all the electric floor heating systems offer specific benefits. These systems operate silently, are maintenance free, and significantly more energy efficient. Radiant heating systems also offer health benefits that can be important for the elderly and those with allergies. Traditional forced-air heating systems blow warm air through a series of ducts, circulating dust and allergens throughout the house. Because radiant heat operates silently, heating the home from the floor up, there is no need for vents and a blower. Radiant heated homes have significantly less dust and allergens circulating through the house.

With multiple floor heating options for a variety of applications and mediums, finding the right choice can be tough for homeowners. But that’s why we’re here. At Warmzone we are dedicated to providing the absolute best customer service in the industry. Not only does that mean free installation training, technical support, and professional system design services, but our free consulting is available so you can feel comfortable with your decision. Take your time, talk with the pros and discover the best system for meeting your heating needs and budget.

Warmzone offers several payment methods, including financing options ranging from no interest, deferred interest, and reduced interest programs. The payment and financing options are designed to give customers a wide range of choices that best suit their needs while allowing them to purchase the radiant heat system of their dreams now.   If you’re thinking about adding a radiant floor heating system to your home or business, visit our floor heating web pages and call a friendly radiant heat expert today at 888-488-9276.

The Right Solutions for Heating Your Floors

Premier Floor Heating Options

Radiant heat is one of the cleanest and most efficient ways to heat your home or business. Warmzone’s vast selection of industry leading products ensures an ideal solution for any application – from bathrooms and basements to garages and outdoor steps. Warmzone has one of the largest product selections in the industry, helping to ensure that the best system is matched with your specific heating needs.

When considering floor heating, one of Warmzone’s most versatile products is ComfortTile heating cable. Whether used alone or in conjunction with the Prodeso membrane system, you can be sure that your home will be heated efficiently and safely.

The ComfortTile floor heating system is UL listed, and features a single-point connection, twin-conductor cable that is rated at 120 or 240 volts. This cable is durable and safety approved for wet locations. ComfortTile heat cable is flexible and can be used in almost any application, as it is available on large spools or pre-spaced in mats. ComfortTile mats are 18-inches wide, but heat a 24-inch wide area. These mats come with an adhesive on the mesh backing, so they are easily installed onto the subfloor, making them a quick and efficient way to install radiant heat for most types of flooring. To ensure your cable or mats keep your floor warm for years to come, ComfortTile heat cable also comes with an industry leading 25-year warranty.

ComfortTile heat cable can also be used in conjunction with Warmzone’s innovative Prodeso membrane system. The Prodeso membrane is a polypropylene uncoupling crack isolation waterproofing membrane that is used for heating floors or other surfaces that do not have movement or expansion joints in the screed. These unique qualities make it possible to install floor heating over what can be difficult substrates, such as plywood. The membrane has rounded square shaped reliefs that create channels that are specifically spaced and designed to embed ComfortTile heat cable. Prodeso membranes are a great choice for ceramic tile or other flooring surfaces that are prone to cracking, or areas such as a bathroom that have high levels of moisture. The Prodeso membrane is also extremely low profile, with a thickness of only ¼-inch, making it ideal for any application. The flexible, lightweight Prodeso membrane makes it a good choice where the load bearing capacity of a sub-floor may be a limitation.

Installing the Prodeso membrane is easy. The membrane comes on rolls, and is laid directly on top of the subfloor. Once the membrane is laid out, the ComfortTile heat cable is installed through the channels of the membrane. The flooring can then be installed directly on top of the membrane. The unique design of the Prodeso membrane makes it extremely versatile. It can be used simply as a membrane to protect flooring, or cable can be installed into the membrane to heat specific areas. The ability to customize heating zones makes Prodeso a great way to ensure your radiant heated floors are energy efficient. Prodeso membrane can also be used on areas such as walls, and in outdoor applications, as it is safe under all weather conditions.

Installing heat cable in the Prodeso membrane

ComfortTile heat cable is one of the most popular floor heating options on the market. Customers love the convenience of the pre-spaced mats, as well as cable off the spool. The system is efficient, reliable and versatile, which is why it remains a top floor heating choice for home and business owners today.

If the ComfortTile or Prodeso membrane system isn’t the right fit for your project, another popular option is Warmzone’s FilmHeat system. This system utilizes an ultra thin heating element that is UL approved and includes a 10 year warranty. FilmHeat is a great value for any home, especially when installing under floating or laminate flooring. FilmHeat is simply cut to size on site, laid out directly under the laminate, and then the electrical connections are secured before finally installing the flooring directly over FilmHeat. FilmHeat has no floor build up and efficiently heats any area. The RetroHeat version of the FilmHeat floor heating system is also a great choice for those looking to install radiant heat under existing flooring. If you can access the joists from below, heating panels are stapled between the floor joists. After the FilmHeat is stapled, Batt insulation is installed over the element to ensure that all the heat goes upward. FilmHeat is a great, affordable choice for any home – and a favorite of those installing floating floors.

Warmzone has many other radiant floor heating options available as well. Warmzone’s low-voltage FloorHeat STEP system features a unique, self-regulating polymer heating element to provide even, energy-efficient, comfortable warmth for hardwood or laminate floors. If your project involves concrete, In-Slab heat cable is an exceptional choice that can be installed directly in the new concrete slab. This durable cable is embedded in the concrete about 1 to 2-inches below the surface to distribute heat evenly across the entire area. FoilHeat is another trusted floor heating option. This system has thin cables that are sandwiched between two layers of reinforced aluminum foil. If you’re looking to heat a large area, a hydronic system that pushes heated liquid through special tubing may be a good choice because of its potential for lower operating costs.

Whatever your floor heating project may be, Warmzone has a proven product to fit your needs and your budget. Customer service specialists are available to help you pick out the perfect product and answer any questions over the phone. Warmzone also has profession system designers who will layout your system and provide all the information needed for your electrician to assure that your system operates efficiently and safely. Free installation training is also available online with an experienced instructor.

If you’re ready for a radiant floor heating system or have more questions, please call Warmzone today at 888-488-9276.

Ring in the New Year with the Luxurious Warmth of Radiant Heat

The new year is the perfect time to make those upgrades to your home or business you’ve been waiting for. Installing radiant heated floors can be an affordable project that gives any space a feeling of luxury and comfort. If questions about whether radiant heated floors are right for your home have been stopping you from moving forward, here are some answers to help you make the best decision in 2020.

Woman in sunlight on warm floor

Radiant heated floors from Warmzone feature top-of-the-line components that are easy to install and easy to operate. Each system features a heating element, a sensor, and an activation device (thermostat). Warmzone offers the best thermostats in the industry. A variety of thermostats are available, ranging from fully programmable thermostats with an in-floor and ambient temperature sensor to simple on/off thermostats with a single temperature sensor. The programmable feature allows homeowners to program the heating system according to their daily and weekly schedule.

Floor heating system thermostats coordinate with sensors to keep the floor at optimum temperature. Sensors are available that sense floor temperature (embedded in the floor) or air temperature in the room, depending on your preference. The popular ComfortTile TOUCH floor heating thermostat is programmable and controls the temperature of the system with either an in-floor or external (ambient) sensor. This advanced thermostat is engineered to ensure that the floor heating system operates efficiently and economically. All of Warmzone’s floor heating thermostats include an integrated Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI, Class A).

Radiant floor heating offers many benefits. Because the systems operate silently, without the need for blowers and duct work, they help prevent the spread of dust, allergens and other particles, keeping the environment cleaner than a forced air system. This is especially beneficial for those with allergies or respiratory problems.

Radiant heat is also the most efficient technology today for heating homes and businesses. Each room with a floor heating system is controlled by its own thermostat, giving the homeowner precise control over the temperature in individual spaces and further adding to the system’s efficiency. Depending on local utility rates, radiant heat can cost less to run than a standard heating system, while providing more luxurious warmth.

With its vast selection of heated floor options, Warmzone makes it easy to find the ideal system for just about any application. Warmzone also custom designs each floor heating system to best meet the customer’s specific needs. The experienced design team provides professional layout and design services so your electrician has all the layout and electrical information necessary to ensure a successful installation.

When choosing a floor heating system, the biggest difference is the heating element. Heating elements come in a variety of forms at Warmzone, such as low-voltage panels, paper-thin sheets, reflective insulated panels, heat resistance cable, and more. ComfortTile heating cable is the most popular and versatile option for heating homes and businesses, and is available off the spool or pre-spaced in flexible mats with an adhesive backing. The twin-conductor heating cable is pre-terminated for simple installation and is only ⅛-inch in diameter, resulting in minimal floor buildup. ComfortTile heat cable also has ground fault protection (GFCI) and does not emit any measurable electromagnetic fields, making it a safe, reliable choice. With this cable, any spacing or coverage adjustments can be made onsite, making it perfect for custom areas where flexibility is needed. ComforTile cable can also be installed in a floor heating membrane such as Prodeso, further adding to its versatility.

ComfortTile heating mats make installation a breeze. The cable is pre-spaced and affixed on a flexible fiberglass mesh backing, which can be rolled out and then secured to the subfloor. These mats are compatible with almost any type of flooring, and are safety approved for wet locations. CT mats heat an area 24 inches wide and are available in different lengths, and can be used with 120 or 240 volts. Mats make it simple and easy to quickly install a floor heating system in areas such as a kitchen or bathroom. ComfortTile radiant heating mats come with a 25-year manufacturer warranty, making this proven system one of the best in the industry, and a great choice for any homeowner.

Installation of a new floor heating system may seem daunting, but by dealing with Warmzone, customers can be assured of receiving premium quality systems and components and unparalleled customer service and support.

Warmzone has set the gold standard when it comes to customer service. Some of our services include professional system design and layouts, free installation training, expert installation/technical support, and a host of online “how-to” videos and documentation. With perhaps the largest selection of floor heating options and unmatched customer service, Warmzone offers customers a hassle-free, quality radiant floor heating solution. We understand that installing a heated floor system in your home is a significant investment for any homeowner, so we want to help ensure that finding and installing the system is done right.

Heated floors are a great way to turn your house into a dream home. For more information or a free quote, contact a radiant heat expert today at 888.488.9276. Or check out Warmzone’s online installation resources, product documentation, and radiant floor heating options today.

Total Temperature Control with Radiant Floor Heating

Adjusting the Temperature with Floor Heat?

Radiant floor heating is a great way to heat your home. In-floor heating systems cut down on dust, noise, and cost. Radiant heat is efficient as it heats from the floor, rather than the vent in the ceiling of your family room. Temperature control is simple with the easy-to-set thermostat that comes with your radiant heated floor. Each room (or zone) also features its own thermostat, so you can efficiently heat only those area where you spend time. Warmzone also offers programmable thermostats so you can set-temperatures and times for your system to turn on or off. For example, you can have the floors warm 20 minutes before you get up each morning so you don’t have to walk across cold tile or hardwood on your way to the shower.

If you’re using heated floors as the sole heating source for your home, keep in mind that it does take some time for the system to warm enough to radiate the exact specified room temperature. There is just a small lag time as it warms the floor and eventually heats the room. While you enjoy total temperature control with radiant floor heating, you have to be patient as it warms to your desired temperature. Forced air turns more quickly but then you endure inefficient heating, air pollutants being stirred up, as well as higher heating costs. You pay more for less heat. Floor heating is efficient as it utilizes radiant heat to warm the entire room and its surroundings, not just the air through cold outer-wall vents.

Warmzone Expands its Product Offerings

Salt Lake City, Utah (PR WEB) June 21, 2016 – Warmzone, a leading radiant heat provider, offers one of the largest selections of radiant heat solutions in the industry. In keeping with its commitment to provide customers with the largest selection of proven radiant heat products, Warmzone has added FilmHeat and FoilHeat to its line of floor heating products. The two recent additions further ensure that customers can choose among the industry’s most trusted and effective floor heating systems.

FoilHeat radiant floor heating system

The FoilHeat floor heating system features a heating element made with fluoropolymer insulated heating cables that are sandwiched between two layers of specially reinforced aluminum foil. The uniform heat cable spacing and heat distribution qualities of the aluminum foil ensures efficient and even heat across the floors.

The ultra thin electric radiant floor heating system is primarily used to heat laminate, engineered wood, glued hardwood and other floating floors. The quality materials and superior design and construction of the heating element ensures that it remains free from the problems of ‘Hot-Spots’ or localized heating, which can sometimes happen with cheaper floor heating systems.

The FoilHeat floor heating system is a premier quality system that offers an excellent value for installing radiant heat under a variety of floor surfaces, including hardwood and laminates, and even carpet. It is extremely simple to install and can be cut on site to fit custom-shaped areas.

The FilmHeat floor heating system is primarily installed to heat laminate flooring. The flexible heating element is laid out directly under the laminate flooring, making it quick and affordable to install. This system features the same technology as Warmzone’s popular RetroHeat floor heating system, which is used to heat existing floors. The paper-thin heating element is stapled up between the floor joists and then insulation is placed over the element to direct all the heat upwards to efficiently warm the floor.

The thin FilmHeat heating element

The FilmHeat floor heating system efficiently heats your floors without causing any floor buildup. When installing the system, the heating panels are cut to their proper length on site, and then installed on the subfloor. After the FilmHeat heating elements are secured, the electrical connections are then made and the laminate floor is installed directly over the panels.

Both FoilHeat and FilmHeat meet the strict quality requirements of Warmzone, giving customers even more options for heating their floors. This helps to ensure that customers receive the ideal solution for their floor heating needs.

In addition to the wide selection of industry leading products, Warmzone also includes professional system design and layout, installation support, and free installation training. When it comes to product offering and customer services, Warmzone is second to none.

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.

With Warmzone’s help, an ambitious do-it-yourselfer can install a FloorHeat radiant heated floor system with ease. Warmzone will provide a detailed system layout as well as expert installation support. You are never alone when you work with Warmzone. In addition to industry leading customer service, Warmzone also provides a wealth of documentation on Warmzone.com, including: manuals, technical guides, illustrations, informative articles and an extensive FAQ section. Unlike many radiant heat system providers, Warmzone provides complete, professional radiant heat services, including detailed layouts with each system, and installation support.

Before you shop anywhere else, why not get expert advice from the radiant heat specialists in the business to use as a baseline? In terms of products, services, support and price, you’ll be pressed to find any radiant heat specialists as competitive as Warmzone.

With a ComfortTile floor heating system warming up your entryway, your feet are more likely to stay dry and warm after you un-boot. These systems consist of thermostat-controlled heating cables under the surface of the floor to provide safe, evenly distributed heat. Because heat radiates up from the floor, radiant floor heat is a highly efficient means for combating cold winter temperatures.

ComfortTile floor heating mat and thermostat

ComfortTile electric radiant floor heating systems consist of thin heating cables that can be easily installed under virtually all types of floor surfaces to provide comfortable, even floor heat. A fully-programmable thermostat communicates with the heat cables to quickly and efficiently deliver heat to each zone or room as you see fit. There’s no wasted energy. Save money by heating only the
specific areas you need. Because there is no noisy blower and heating ducts or vents, ComfortTile radiant heated floors silently heats your home without stirring up dust and allergens. Radiant

Having been in an environment that relies on radiant floor heat for providing warmth, I’ve seen and felt its effectiveness first hand. My young boy’s environmentally conscious school recently installed, radiant heated floors, and its effects are impressive. I’m particularly attuned to the performance of the heated floors because I work there in the evening. As fast as I can mop, these floors are drying directly behind me.

During winters, as snow accumulates, it’s not uncommon to see a dozen or so snow ensembles such as hats, gloves, coats and snow pants laid out on the school’s heated floor to dry. Despite the abundance of little wet feet, there’s little time for melted snow puddles to accumulate in this environment.

Imagine harnessing this same heating power in your home! Using ComfortTile to heat foyers and entryways is a great way to combat the tracking of ice and snow into your home. Radiant heat not only provides a little extra assurance beyond the welcome mat by providing comfortable warmth, but enhances safety by helping to eliminate slick wet spots that are typical during winters.

Self-Regulating Heat Cable

Self-reg Cable for Roof Deicing and Pipe Trace Solutions

Self-regulating gutter trace heat cable is extremely effective and energy efficient thanks to its unique construction. The cable is comprised of a rugged, durable outer jacket surrounding an irradiated conductive core that increases the heat output as outside temperatures fall, and decreases output as temperatures rise. This construction also makes RoofHeat radiant heat cable incredibly resilient in the toughest conditions. The superior outer jacket allows provides greater flexibility and can be mounted to heat roof edged as well as in gutters and downspouts to facilitate runoff.

Warmzone roof heating experts will provide a comprehensive system design/layout as well as installation support and even free installation training if you choose.

Warmzone radiant heat professionals work closely with you to determine the best solution to meet your snow melting needs, power requirements and budget.

Heating your roof edges is a great way to protect your home from the water damage caused by ice dams. When warmer air escapes from your attic, it can melt the snow on your roof, causing it to run down towards the edges. However, the water refreezes when it reaches the eaves, and as this process is repeated over time, ice dams form, causing pools of water to backup behind the ice where
it can eventually damage your roofing and seep into your home, causing expensive water damage. Ice dams can also be responsible for causing structural decay and rot, or mold and mildew formation in the attic and on walls.

Heated roof edgeHeavy icicles can strain gutters and damage the support pins. No matter how you look at it, damage from roof ice and snow can be costly. A few well placed heat trace cables along your roof’s edge and in gutters and downspouts can serve as an excellent investment in your home. Contact a roof heating expert and learn more about the many roof deicing options that are available.

Self-regulating heat cable is also the ideal solution for pipe tracing and pipe freeze protection. Warmzone carries a variety of self-regulating heat cable for industrial, commercial and residential
heat trace applications. Warmzone designers are happy to talk with you to discuss the solutions that can best serve your needs. There’s no obligation, so call 888.488.9276 today.
