Frequently Asked Questions


What types of radiant heating systems is the SmartFix service applicable for?

At this time, the SmartFix service is available for electric floor heating cables, electric floor heating rolls, electric floor heating mats, electric snow melting cables, electric snow melting mats, electric pipe freeze protection cables, and electric roof and gutter deicing cables.


How long is the warranty on a SmartFix repair?

Repairs made to WarmlyYours heating elements by a WarmlyYours representative are warrantied against defects in workmanship and materials for a period of 10 years from the time of the repair. Repairs made to a competitor's heating elements are warrantied against defects in workmanship and materials for a period of 5 years from the time of the repair.

This warranty does not include thermostats or controls, which will remain subject to the terms of the original manufacturer's warranty.


What exactly is included in my SmartFix service fee?

The service fee for SmartFix includes the first hour of labor at the jobsite. After the initial hour, each hour will accrue an additional fee.

The service fee also includes travel for the WarmlyYours representative of up to 100 miles (round trip) outside of the Chicago-area. If the project is located outside of this 100-mile (round trip) range, there will be an additional, milage-based fee.

There can also be additional fees for any materials needed to complete repairs and for any projects requiring an overnight stay or an extended stay from the WarmlyYours representative.


What is the typical waiting period for a SmartFix service visit?

There is no set answer for this as it depends on many variables but we will do our best to get to your project as expediently as possible.

The typical scheduling process will look something like this: we will contact you within 1 to 2 business days from when the initial service request is received. A WarmlyYours representative will then call to discuss the project specifics. Once this has been done, the WarmlyYours representative will identify available dates to conduct the onsite service that are also convenient for the customer.


What are the service days and hours for SmartFix?

SmartFix is available weekdays (Monday through Friday—excluding holidays) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST.


What happens if a SmartFix repair requires additional parts or materials?

If the system was supplied by WarmlyYours, the onsite WarmlyYours representative will have basic replacement parts available. All other parts or materials, which are not standard parts supplied by WarmlyYours, will have to be ordered in. This could result in an additional SmartFix appointment (and accompanying fees) being required to install the aforementioned additional parts.


Will you fix a competitor's radiant heating system?

WarmlyYours does have the knowledge to repair essentially any type of electric radiant heating system.

However, depending on how the system was installed and the quality of the heating elements that were installed, a competitor's heating system may be damaged during the testing process. This can occur if a competing heating element is not durable enough to withstand high-intensity testing, which could lead to further failure—this isn't typical but it is important to be aware of the possibility. WarmlyYours will not be held liable for any failures to third party heating elements during the testing process.


Should I hire a professional installer to remove a section of flooring/surface if that is required to fix the heating system?

Yes, it is preferable that you have the relevant service provider onsite or on-standby during the SmartFix appointment to safely remove the section of flooring/surface to limit damage to the rest of the project.

If the service provider fails to show up at the scheduled SmartFix appointment, you will have the option to reschedule the SmartFix visit at an additional cost.

Alternatively, the WarmlyYours representative could proceed to remove the section of flooring/surface with the approval of the homeowner at an additional cost. In this event, WarmlyYours will not accept or be held liable for any damages which may occur during this process.


If the floor or surface installed over the heating system is removed during the repair process, will WarmlyYours replace the floor/surface?

No, the appropriate floor surface contractor will be required to perform this task at the customer's expense.
