Are you considering installing heated concrete floors in your home? Even if you aren't building a new home, perhaps you're thinking about adding a sunroom or garage to your house. If you want to enjoy your sunroom in all four seasons, or comfortably enjoy the beauty of a trendy new polished, stamped or stained concrete floor, you'll appreciate radiant heating under foot.
With WarmlyYours' concrete heating cables and mats, you can design your concrete floors to be as warm and functional as they are attractive.
Provide us with a sketch of your room that includes dimensions and other relevant information and you’ll receive a free SmartPlan within one business day.
Electric in-floor heating systems generate an even heat throughout your home and will not disturb dust, reducing the chance of possible allergic reactions. What's more, radiant heated floors reduce noise levels and the amount of dry air in your home. There are other benefits to floor heating as well, including financial perks, as they are inexpensive to install and typically don't add more than a quarter to electric bills.
WarmlyYours provides free design services to make sure that customers purchase the heating system that best meets their project requirements. Depending on the floor type and the shape and size of a room's layout, the size and placement of heating mats will differ.
Yes, we offer several options to help make your floor heating system water resistant or waterproof. Our TempZone product line is designed for wet areas - making it completely safe for rooms that will have water on the floor at times or may experience leaks or flooding. We also offer waterproofing bands for our TempZone Cable + Prodeso Uncoupling Membrane system. Allowing you to waterproof all seams and the perimeters of the wall - guaranteeing that your floor heating system stays safe and prevents water from leaking to areas below.
No, it is recommended that floor heating only be installed in the areas that you will walk on. Heat can become trapped if installed under objects that do not offer enough clearance for air to circulate (such as a washer or dryer).
Yes, sunrooms can be used in the winter, just activate your floor heating or radiant panel and turn your sunroom into a 4-season room. You will notice a tremendous difference in the room comfort, especially with the thermostat set to maintain a desired ambient temperature. WarmlyYours thermostats will do the work for you by energizing the floor for longer cycles.
Floor heating will typically add the most heat to supplement an existing heating source and it will not take any extra space since it is embedded in the floor. If you are not remodeling your floors but have some open wall space, you should mount a radiant panel. For the most effective results, install the panel so that it points toward the area where you will spend most of the time.
Sunrooms can be very cold during the winter months. While a furnace may push some warm air into the room, the large number of windows, exterior walls, and other causes of heat loss in a sunroom will typically keep it from having a comfortable temperature level. Floor heating and radiant panels will add radiant heat, which the human body absorbs faster than other forms of heat, to the room so that it feels warm even at lower temperatures.
The slab heating cable sits in the middle of concrete pour. Here are the layers for this application from bottom to top:
In-stock items will ship the same day if you place your order before 4:00 PM CST.
The requirements are: 20 watts per square foot foot (with 3" spacing) without a floor covering; or 15 watts per square foot (with 5" spacing of cable only) with a floor covering. To calculate your exact power requirements, multiply the square feet by 20 or 15, as listed above and then divide by the voltage (120V or 240V) to arrive at Amps.
Stop installation, box out a 3"×3" area surrounding the damaged area and call tech support at (800) 875-5285.
Supplemental heat can be addressed by changing the spacing on cable installs. Floor location in the house is very important when considering adding supplemental heating to a floor. For example: If heating a second story floor, over a heated space, cable at 4" spacing can be used. The same type of heating over an unheated space would probably be done with TempZone Flex Rolls or TempZone Cable at 3" spacing. All heating is considered supplemental unless a heat loss calculation is done.
The layers for the full installation are as follows:
Call tech support at (800) 875-5285 to customize this to your unique application.
The cost for material per square foot is approximately $10.00-15.00 per square foot.
You should install the cable 2-3" below the finished surface, and attach it to rebar and/or reinforcing wire mesh to secure the cable in place.
Any trade professional is qualified to layout cables and/or mats; electricians must make the electrical connections and test the wire; you can hire a concrete contractor to install the concrete for you.
