Lake Zurich, Ill., August 4, 2015 ⎯ As the building of new homes and remodeling of existing homes improved in the second quarter of 2015, so did sales of WarmlyYours Radiant Heating products.
WarmlyYours’ total sales in the United States and Canada increased 8.2 percent in the second quarter of 2015, compared with the prior-year period. Growth was primarily led by third-party integration kits, mirror defoggers, countertop heaters, and outdoor radiant heating systems.
Third-party integration kits, which enable WarmlyYours floor-heating systems to work with smart thermostats like the Nest, increased more than 900 percent in sales during the second quarter, compared with the prior-year period. WarmlyYours’ ClearlyYou™ mirror defoggers increased more than 170 percent, and FeelsWarm® countertop heaters grew more than 50 percent in the second quarter.
As expected, outdoor radiant heating systems also continued their strong performance from the first quarter of 2015. In the second quarter, roof and gutter deicing systems increased more than 470 percent, and snow-melting systems grew nearly 40 percent.
“Spring and summer are the prime seasons for installing outdoor radiant heating solutions, so we expect these systems to continue their strong growth into next quarter as well,” said WarmlyYours President and Owner Julia Billen.
Towel warmers also experienced double-digit growth in the second quarter. The segment grew 24 percent during the timeframe, which can be partially attributed to the success of WarmlyYours’ new Metropolitan and Studio towel warmers.
WarmlyYours’ Metropolitan and Studio towel warmers were exclusively available through outside retailers last year, but this year their availability expanded to www.warmlyyours.com and other outlets. As a result, the Metropolitan increased more than 400 percent during the second quarter, and the Studio performed even better with a 645 percent increase in sales.
WarmlyYours’ TempZone™ floor-heating cable also performed particularly well during the second quarter. The twin-conductor cable first made its debut in early 2014. During the second quarter of 2015, it increased 65 percent in sales, compared with the prior-year period.
“I am extremely proud of our performance in the second quarter,” Billen said. “We expect this success to continue into the third quarter, with outdoor radiant heating solutions remaining in strong demand. As we finish out the year, indoor floor heating will gain traction as cold weather approaches, so we look forward to having a really strong year this year.”
