As a whole home heating solution, installing radiant electric floor heating tends to be controlled on a room-by-room basis (rather than one central thermostat for central heating). What you get is the ideal situation for floor heating efficiency. Warmup thermostats, such as the cutting edge 3ie option, can be programmed to only heat rooms when it is required. This leads to large efficiency gains as energy isn't wasted heating rooms that don't require heating at that time. You wind up experiencing a higher comfort level since rooms which require less heating can have their own heat setting which means they won't be overheated or underheated.
There are 3 basic reasons why using Warmup′s radiant floor heating products can make a whole home heating solution possible and reasonable.
- Hottest Wire: our wires are coated with advanced polymers that allow for the fastest heat up times available. The faster the heat up time, the faster you reach the desired temperature delivering efficiency and savings.
- The Warmup Insulation Boards (WIB) are designed to create a thermal barrier between your heating system, reflecting the heat upwards into the flooring instead of allowing heat to warm up the concrete slab below. By using Warmup Insulation Boards you will find that after switching on your heating, your floor tiles will warm up in about 10-15 minutes as opposed to a much slower time without them.
- By taking advantage our quality thermostats, most notably the new 3ie fully interactive, energy monitoring thermostat, you have a complete package to get the highest efficiency out of your radiant floor heating products.
