Nuheat is the easiest way to get a heated floor, since the mats are pre-built for you!
Nuheat™ offers 120 standard size pre-built square & rectangular floor heating mats that are ready to fit your room and will keep almost any flooring at a warm and comfortable temperature that you set on the thermostat control. All Nuheat mats are less than 1/8” thin and are available in 120V or 240V (aka 110V or 220V), and you can install 150 square feet of 120V mats per control, or 300 square feet of 240V. Warm tiles can be yours overnight with the Nuheat under floor heating system.
People often ask us if they should be using cork insulation for their heated concrete flooring. We tell them that many contractors & homeowners recommend that you insulate between an existing concrete slab & your new Electric Radiant Floor Heating System. Insulation is not required, but many customers like to install a "thermal break" while they are installing new floor heating. Heat transfers to cold material, meaning warm objects or surfaces transfer heat to cold ones. An Insulating material on top of the slab and under the Electric Radiant Floor Heat elements will slow the transfer of heat from the heating elements into the bottom of the slab and effectively decrease the time it takes your floor warming system to warm the part your floor that matters.
No. Both have the same efficiency and both mats use 12 watts per square foot. 240 volt mats operate with half the amperage (current) of 120 volt models. The 240 volt models are more popular for larger installations of over 150 Sq Ft, for rooms where you want a lower amperage service, or for rooms where 240V is already in place. Once again, SunTouch has thought of all the options!
