Electric Underfloor Heating Systems: Carpet, Laminate and Wood

Warmup heating mats are strategically placed wherever required. Positioned between the carpet and underlay, the heating mats are available in a range of sizes designed to fit most rooms. There's no maintenance required, and no annual check-ups are needed. With efficient zoning and a programmable thermostat, it's easy to regulate home temperature while saving energy and money.

Warmup foil heating mat is specifically suitable for use with floating floors in areas of varying size — from a small bedroom to a large open space room. The super-thin flat aluminium foil will not raise the floor levels visibly, which is why it is a great solution for renovations.

The foil heater is made up of a fibre reinforced foil encasing a multi stranded heating cable that is insulated with an advanced fluoropolymer. The Warmup Undertile Heating element is a multi stranded conductors, teflon insulated (fluoro polymer), full earth screen with outer PVC insulation.
