Our Online Design Tool is the first of its kind in the radiant heating industry— it's a free underfloor heating design tool along with an online floor plan design tool. You can use it to create and layout a room with the exact measurements and the fixtures of your choice in order to ensure that your quote is as accurate as possible because you can use the underfloor heating design software to create an exact digital replica of the room you plan to install floor heating in.
The Online Design Tool is a part of our Quote Builder and can be accessed directly from that tool. Once your designed project is complete and saved, you can get a side-by-side comparison in our Quote Builder of the heating systems that would work for your project.
This will allow you to compare pricing and product information. From there, you can either continue on through the purchase procedure or save your project and return at a later date. The Online Design Tool will allow you to have multiple rooms saved at once to help build your entire project or quote.
And don't worry, you don't have to be an architect or trained in CAD in order to use our underfloor heating design software! We've worked really hard to make sure that this free underfloor heating design tool is as intuitive and easy-to-use as possible.
