CeraZorb Underlayment Description
CeraZorb is a synthetic cork underlayment that is installed on top of a subfloor and below a heating element. It is recommended when installing an electric floor heating system over a concrete slab to prevent heat loss. By creating a thermal break, the heat is prevented from sinking into the concrete, and more heat radiates into the floor covering and room. In addition to preventing unnecessary heat loss, CeraZorb provides sound dampening benefits and double the crack isolation benefits when compared to cork.
CeraZorb is lightweight—up to 25 times lighter than traditional 1/4" backer board. It is available in 2’ x 4’ and 4’ x 4’ sheets, and in packs of up to 100. CeraZorb is a 6 mm. (less than 1/4 in.) thick, synthetic cork underlayment system that is specifically designed for setting tile and stone and is an excellent insulation choice under our TempZone™ electric radiant floor-heating product. It’s a very resilient underlayment with compressive strength of 34 psi at 10% deformation.
This 4’ x 4’ sheet is great for covering larger areas or for allowing you to custom trim it in the field. A minimum order of 20 sheets is required for this item.

WarmlyYours’ TempZone™ product is most commonly installed under tile, stone, and marble flooring, but can also be installed under many other popular floor covering options such as hardwood, vinyl and linoleum.

Should I add insulation before installing electric floor heating and how will that affect the system's performance?
When installing electric floor heating over a concrete slab, an insulating underlayment like CeraZorb is highly recommended to ensure efficient operation, faster heating times and warmer floor temperatures.
Please keep in mind that you must check your electric floor heating system with a digital ohmmeter in conjunction with a Circuit Check™. Take an initial reading as soon as you take the product out of the box to verify that it is within -5% / +10% of the values stated on the product’s label. This will give you a basis of comparison for future readings. Take a second reading once you have positioned the system to match your custom installation plan. It is also advisable to take an additional reading in the middle of the tile installation, just to make sure that the Circuit Check™ is doing its job. Then, take a final reading when you are finished with the floor installation and are ready to hook up the thermostat.
The Circuit Check™ is a tool developed by WarmlyYours to give you peace of mind and ensure trouble-free installations. Simply hook up the cold leads to the tool while you position the system to match your custom installation plan.
The Circuit Check™ will continuously monitor the continuity of the circuit during the installation of your system and during the installation of your flooring. The Circuit Check™ beeps immediately when a short in the system is detected, alerting you to a potentially damaged cable in the area you are working, before you lay the tile over the electric floor heating system. The WarmlyYours technical support team is available 24/7 to provide assistance if the alarm sounds, or if you would have any questions during your installation.
Yes, in most cases, an electric floor heating system can be effective as a primary heat source. However, our TempZone™ and Environ™ systems are most commonly used as a secondary heat source, providing floor-to-ceiling radiant heat to any room in your home where you desire more warmth and comfort.
If you are considering electric floor heating for an addition to your home, such as a sunroom where you have no other source of heat, WarmlyYours offers an innovative online tool which calculates approximate heat loss. This tool can help you to determine if a WarmlyYours’ electric radiant floor heating system will provide your desired comfort temperature throughout the year. You can access the Heat Loss Calculator or you can call us at (800) 875-5285 and a Customer Service Representative will make the calculation for you.

This product is amazing. We did not have the budget for a heated floor, but wanted something to lower our heat loss from a portion of our home that is on a slab. CeraZorb is impressive with what it accomplishes. A dramatic reduction in heat loss. We wish we installed it throughout the entire house..

John A., Atlanta, GA on 01/03/2023
If I were hiring account reps right now, I'd be thinking about Jenn. She always puts the customer first and tries to think through their needs. Jenn introduced me to the cerasorb product as she listened to me describe my project and prompted me with questions regarding the situational aspects of the installation that helped me, as a homeowner and purchaser, and my installer to come up with a better solution.
great customer service

Shopped around at big hardware stores but WarmlyYours offered a greater selection and terrific customer service. They were very responsive to questions, and helped me with an exchange when my original purchase was slightly oversized for our sunroom. They were also helpful with my contractor handling questions he had about the installation. The radiant heat in our sunroom floor has made the space so enjoyable during this cool fall season.

I’ve been trying to find an easy way to warm up my son’s bedroom above garage, when I came across WarmlyYours. The radiant heating system was designed by WarmlyYours and installed underneath our new carpet. The whole process was great. We couldn’t be happier. It looks and works great. Thank you.
