Description

The TempZone Floor Heating Ruler Cable is the first electric radiant heating cable to feature easy-to-read hash marks at every half-inch, inch, and foot increment. This innovative design, along with a free SmartPlan installation plan from WarmlyYours, ensures the installer is using the proper amount of cable while they’re laying it out along with making sure the heating elements are in the proper location. This will help guarantee a smooth installation of the floor heating system and even heating coverage for the end user.

The TempZone Floor Heating Ruler Cable is meant to be embedded in thinset or self-leveling compound beneath a wide range of floor coverings like tile, marble, stone, LVT, and more. The cable provides 3.7 watts per linear foot (9-15 watts per sq. ft. depending on spacing).

This cable is also very safe with a UL listing for use in both the US and Canada and ultra-low EMF levels due to a 100% Mylar shield around the ground wire in the cable. The TempZone Floor Heating Ruler Cable is also more durable than many other comparable cables due to its crush resistant ETFE (fluoropolymer) core insulation and high-temperature PVC jacket. Additionally, the elements of the cable are constructed in such a way that the cable has exceptional flexibility in nearly all directions.

The TempZone Floor Heating Ruler Cable can be installed in two different ways: with GripStrips™ or with an uncoupling membrane. The GripStrips™ are complimentary and are the most economical but also labor intensive option for installation. Using an uncoupling membrane is more costly but also provides other benefits like speed of installation, crack isolation, and the possibility of waterproofing the installation with accessories.

The TempZone Floor Heating Ruler Cable is covered by our industry-leading 25-year No Nonsense™ Warranty.

What type of flooring can I install along with an electric floor heating system?

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. We also have our Environ system, which is an electric floor heating product as well and is specially designed for installation under carpet (in the U.S. only), laminate and floating wood. WarmlyYours can accommodate any flooring type with either of the electric radiant floor heating products that we offer. If your flooring type isn't listed here, just give us a call at (800) 875-5285 and we will be happy to discuss it with you.

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 ThermalSheet is highly recommended to ensure efficient operation, faster heating times and warmer floor temperatures.

How much does it cost to run an electric floor heating system?

The answer to this question will depend on a whole host of variables related to electric floor heating, including, but not limited to, the run time (for supplemental heating, we usually recommend between 4-8 hours per day), the electric radiant floor heating system you're using, the total square footage, and your local electrical cost. Typically, the cost is just a few cents a day.

Do I need insulation when installing an electric floor heating system over a concrete slab?

When WarmlyYours electric floor heating systems are being installed on a concrete slab, we strongly recommend adding a layer of insulation over the slab prior to installing the system. While our electric floor heating provides up to 25% more heating power per square foot than many of our competitors, the slab will always act as a "heat sink." Some of the heat that would otherwise be transferred to the flooring surface will remain in the slab, causing the floor’s surface temperature to be considerably lower. This is true with any electric radiant floor heating system.

When installed on top of a concrete slab without insulation, it is generally accepted that electric floor heating will take the chill away from the floor and provide a small amount of warmth. Adding insulation on top of the slab and beneath any electric radiant floor heating system will allow a greater percentage of the heat generated to transfer to the flooring surface. This results in greater efficiency and therefore faster warm up times, higher expected surface temperatures and lower energy usage. The floor will have the capacity to warm to a comfortable temperature, and in some cases can be employed as the primary heat source for that room.

The recommended types of insulation are natural cork, insulated tile backer boards and insulated underlayment, such as ThermalSheet™ synthetic cork.

Will electric floor heating help with moisture issues like mold and mildew?

Yes, the drying effects of electric radiant floor heating will reduce the humidity coming from the slab, which is the largest source of moisture.
