Electric Under Floor Heating Systems
TABLE OF CONTENTS
NOTE: Below are some general overviews of several different types of electric floor heating systems. Each system possesses unique characteristics that make them better suited for heating specific types of floors. Review this information and then contact a Warmzone radiant heat expert to further determine which system is best for heating your floor type.
Radiant floor heat has become increasingly popular in homes throughout Northern America. The most common floor heating systems use thin resistance heat cable that is installed under the floor surface. Because of the relatively simple installation and the ability to place the cable in custom configurations to heat odd shaped areas, radiant floor heating systems are particularly well suited for warming unconventionally shaped areas. And since electric floor heating systems do not require a mechanical room (unlike hydronic systems) and are easy to install, they are ideally suited for heating small and medium sized areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms and hallways. Each room is connected to its own thermostat, further enhancing the efficiency of electric heated floors.
While radiant heat can be installed to heat virtually all types of flooring, ceramic tile may be the most efficient floor surface for radiant heat. Ceramic tile retains and distributes heat extremely well so heating tile floors results in luxurious warmth as well as unmatched energy efficiency. The heat is distributed evenly and the tile retains the warmth for long periods of time.
Warmzone offers both electric and hydronic floor heating solutions. Most electric floor heating systems utilize twin conductor heating cable, but Warmzone also offers several other distinctly different floor heating options, including FloorHeat STEP. This system features an advanced thin, low-voltage floor heating element that can be rolled out for quick and easy installation. See the FloorHeat information in the table below to learn more about this unique, self-regulating polymer heating element. Because Warmzone manufactures and carries a wide range of floor heating systems, we offer customers several distinct options to best meet their unique floor heating needs. In addition to our industry leading ComfortTile heat cable and FloorHeat systems, Warmzone also offers many other proven floor heating systems, each with their own characteristics and benefits.
Radiant under floor heating systems are controlled by an advanced thermostat that is available with an in-floor sensor that detects floor temperature as well as an ambient sensor to detect room temperature. Given the many types of electric under floor heating systems that are available, it is valuable for consumers to be able to talk with the radiant heat experts at Warmzone to learn about the specific features and benefits of each system, and how the different heating elements will perform when it comes to heating their floors. Radiant heat can be safely installed to warm most types of floors, including tile, hardwood, laminates and more. One of the most appealing benefits of electric heated floors is that they are maintenance-free, so you don't have to worry about regular maintenance costs or changing filters.
