What is QuietWarmth?QWPS-girl_small

Manufactured by MP Global Products, QuietWarmth radiant floor heating systems include film mats that combine over 30 years of unique radiant floor heating science with patented floor heating technology.

Before installing QuietWarmth, always check with your floor covering manufacturer for compatibility with radiant heat systems.

What are the advantages of QuietWarmth?

QuietWarmth FLIR heat coverage

QuietWarmth radiant heating films are among the easiest to install products in the industry, especially for click-together/floating floors. The films mats’ revolutionary construction means the energy delivery results in 100% coverage.

Install any QuietWarmth heating mat with no self-leveling mortar and no mess.

Under click-together/floating floors, QuietWarmth requires no mortar or glue to install.
Simply unroll your mats, run the wires, and lay your floor.

Or for traditional tile or glue-down installations, attach the peel and stick mats directly to your subfloor and tile over normally.

QuietWarmth provides gentle heat for your feet for just pennies per day!

A 60 square foot area costs just $0.086 for the first hour to reach desired temperature and half that for every hour afterward (based on national average electricity rate of $0.12 per kilowatt hour).

To calculate the power consumption of your project, use the following formula:
Total Square Feet of Heated Area x 12 ÷ 1000 x Local Cost per Kilowatt Hour Electric Rate

 

How does it work?

MP Global Products uses conductive ink technology in their QuietWarmth film mats, powered via parallel factory-attached lead wires that consume less power than traditional wired radiant floor heating systems. The mats are so thin that they won’t raise the height of your floor.

Both peel and stick and click-together floor heating systems offer flexibility with the option to spot heat your floor by simply placing the mats where you want them. The click-together film can also be cut to a desired length.*

*Cut-to-length feature does not apply to the peel and stick mats for tile and glue-down floors.

Either style mat can be installed over a concrete or plywood subfloor according to their respective installation manuals. A lower vapor barrier must be installed onto a concrete subfloor before installing the film for floating floors. The peel and stick solution can be directly adhered to a flat and clean subfloor.

      Hello Jay!

      Thank you so much for the compliment on our article. Our most popular QuietWarmth mats (120V, 3′ x 5′) today, are priced at about $5.66 per square foot for the floating film and $9.33 for the peel & stick solution.

      Hi Jim! QuietWarmth’s Peel & Stick product can indeed be stuck directly to a concrete, or plywood, subfloor that is flat, clean, and ready to accept floor covering.

      The installation onto a concrete subfloor is demonstrated in the video on the bottom-right of this article at about the 1:25 mark.

      Thank you so much for the question, I will be updating the article to include this information momentarily!

    • Hi Bryan,
      Yes, the QuietWarmth film can be placed over an existing vinyl flooring as long as it is laying flat. If the vinyl floor is peeling up at all, this is not recommended.

  • I installed 2 18 inch x 5foot mats in my new bathroom.installed on top of cement board and used the recommended thin set with natural slate tiles. After hooking up the floor temp was at 47 deg. After 24 hours it was only up to 54 deg. Set to 65 on thermostate. Is this normal to take so long?

    • Hi Eric,

      Thank you for reaching out to us regarding this issue. The floor should not be taking that long to warm up. We would love to discuss this more with you to figure out the exact mat and installation process to help locate the problem. Please, call us at 866-558-3369 or email us at customercare@warmyourfloor.com and we will help you get this resolved. Thanks, Eric!

    Hello,

    I am installing your quiet warmth heating film for vynil floors and I have two 5ft panels, and one 10 ft panel, but I am not sure what the total amp draw is and from what I have read I can’t exceed 15 amps with the power module. So what is the amp draw for a 10ft panel and a 5ft panel?

    • Hi Nicholas,

      Thank you for reaching out to us regarding your QuietWarmth mats. The amps will depend on the width of the panels because we have both 1.5′ and 3′ widths for the 5′ and 10′ lengths. However, the group of mats that you have listed will allow you to use one thermostat with no issue. These mats are very energy efficient with the largest mat of 3′ x 10′ being only 2.98 amps for a 120V system. The 3′ x 5′ mat will have a total of 1.44 amps.

      If you have any further questions, please check out our product pages to get more details and specifications such as amps and wattage, or feel free to call us at 866-558-3369.

      Warm Regards,

    • Hi Devin,

      The factory power leads for the QuietWarmth films are going to be 15′ long. Yes, these can be extended with a junction box. Feel free to call us at 866-558-3369 if you have any further questions!

      Warm Regards,
