Floor Heating Mats
Floor heating mats are the most popular way to add electric radiant floor heating to your home. Not only is the installation process quicker and easier than installing cable, but there is less room for error during the installation. Why take the risk of having cables spaced incorrectly leading to sub-par heating when you can purchase a high quality mat that was manufactured with optimal spacing built in?
We carry two brands of electric radiant floor heating mats: SunTouch and Nuheat. Both companies are very reputable and well-established manufacturers of high quality products. Their mats are equal in terms of heat output, energy usage and durability. The only difference is in the installation process, and they both have their benefits in that area as well.
SunTouch mats provide the most flexibility on the jobsite. They come in 24 in, 30 in, and 36 in rolls that can be cut and turned to custom fit a room. They are great for rooms that are oddly shaped and floors that have obstructions in them such as vents or islands.
Nuheat mats come in squares and rectangles. They cannot be cut or altered on the jobsite, but they provide the fastest installation of all standard sized mats and cables. Also, with the large selection of sizes they provide you are sure to be able to find one or more mats that can be used together to fit your space.
For the best coverage and easiest installation of all, consider ordering a custom mat. Both SunTouch and Nuheat custom mats are available.
SunTouch manufactures a number of accessories that can make installing your mat even simpler. Whether you could use some extra double-sided tape to hold the mat down or would like a Loudmouth fault alarm for peace of mind during you installation, you can find everything you need here.
SunTouch manufactures a number of accessories that can make installing your WarmWire cable easier. Whether you need some extra Cable Strap and double-sided tape or just want an extra sensor wire for peace of mind, we have what you need.
For especially cold rooms with slab subfloors, consider installing this 6mm cork to add a thermal break between the heating elements and the slab. This will help lower the startup time of the system. Installing a programmable thermostat will help even more as they learn to compensate for the startup time.
Nuheat mat accessories make installing your mat even simpler. Pick up a Mat Sense Pro Fault Alarm and an extra Sensor Wire for more peace of mind during you installation.
Nuheat cable accessories make installing your cables easier. From Extra Cable Guides to Power Lead Extension Kits, get what you need here.
Whether you are heating your driveway or your roof, automated control is vital for snow and ice melting systems. Attaching a sensor to your system or control panel will ensure that it activates just before snow and ice start to form, giving you the absolute best results. Trying to operate a system with no sensor by manually turning it on can result in the system taking hours to melt snow build up and catch up to the current rate of snow fall.
