Warmzone’s FeelsWarm® Countertop Heaters
Warmzone’s countertop heaters with FeelsWarm technology feature a thin (0.025 inches), flexible
low-voltage heating element. Because the thin heating element adheres to the underside of the counter
or kitchen island they remain out of sight while creating a warm, comfortable place for the
family to gather. The panels can be easily customized to meet your specific needs,
and the heaters are surprisingly easy to install.
The countertop heaters feature an advanced design that utilizes a passive warming system.
The heater slowly warms the stone counter, taking about 90 minutes to raise the temperature.
This gradual warming approach and lack of temperature pulsing eliminates shock to the stone.
And because the low-voltage countertop heaters are so efficient, the systems feature a low
operating cost. In fact, homeowners typically leave their counter warming system running at
all times, costing about 20 cents a day.
Warmzone’s FeelsWarm countertop heaters are commonly installed to warm kitchen islands,
overhangs, desks, bathroom counters, bars, vanities, reception desks and any indoor application
where stone is being considered. It is best to only heat the overhang, or edge of the counter.
Most installations feature the heating panel being placed along the counter’s edge to about 12
inches deep. Because stone is typically not a good thermal conductor and most people only make
contact near the edge of the counter, installing a 10 to 14-inch wide heating panel on the
underside of the counter’s edge is the most ideal placement. The countertop heaters efficiently
warm all types of stone, engineered stone and concrete countertops.
Because the heaters are low voltage they utilize a small transformer, which is usually
installed in the kitchen island along with the thermal controller. While the thermal
controller remains easily accessible, because of the low operating cost, most homeowners
simply leave the system on 24/7. The cost to operate a 4 square foot countertop heater
continuously is similar to a 75 watt light bulb, or approximately 20 to 25 cents per day.
Designed for easy installation, the heater shape and size is configured specifically to
the customer’s unique counter, whether overhanging or resting on framework, angled or curved.
The heating mats are an easy do-it-yourself installation that safely and effectively warms
Warmzone’s FeelsWarm countertop heaters are designed to gradually elevate the surface
of stone countertops around 25 degrees above room temperature. In a 70-degree room counter
will warm to about 95 degrees.
Available in four popular sizes, the countertop heaters can also be custom-designed to
fit your layout needs. The gentle warmth safely adds luxurious comfort to kitchens,
bathrooms, offices and more. To learn more about your countertop heating options contact a
