Film Floor Heating Element

FilmHeat In-floor heating systems feature a paper-thin, yet highly effective heating element that can be cut on site. The floor heating system requires no floor buildup and provides a moderate and regulated warmth that is best suited for laminate surfaces.

The FilmHeat floor heating element is easy to install directly under laminate floors. The under floor radiant heat system is UL approved and carries a generous 10-year warranty. The FilmHeat system allows you to reduce the usage of your primary heating system to facilitate greater energy savings while lowering your monthly heating bills.

FilmHeat, Perfect for All Laminate Surfaces

The FilmHeat In-Floor Heating system is one of the best values for installing radiant heat under laminate flooring. It is laid out directly under the laminate flooring as it is being laid out, making it quick and affordable to install.

The FilmHeat In-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.

FilmHeat can also be used to retrofit existing floors with radiant heat by accessing the floor joists from below. The heating panels are stapled up between the floor joists. Then Batt insulation is applied over the heating element to direct all the heat upwards, resulting in an affordable and efficient way to add radiant floor heating to existing floors. (This is the same type of heating element as our RetroHeat floor heating product.)

The under floor heating system consists of heating panels, connection materials, and a unique digital thermostat that includes a 16-amp GFCI breaker and floor sensor for accurate programming.
