Heated Carpet Flooring
Carpets offer several benefits to a homeowner. In addition to being luxurious and comfortable, carpets improve the indoor climate by retaining airborne dust parties, absorbing sound, and adding versatility. The best thing is that they are available in many structures, designs, and colors. You will be able to find the option that matches your style. If you need underfloor heating to go with your carpet, we are here for you. We have several options well suited for your needs.
Heating Under Carpet
The first point you need to understand is that underfloor heating systems are compatible with carpets. Electric heating cables are fit heating solutions for use under the carpet floor covering. At Heavenly Heat, we have several floor heating options for you to pick from.
DIY Underfloor Heating SystemsCold floors are a result of inefficient and uneven heat distribution. In combating this problem, DIY Underfloor heating systems are a popular product. Homeowners no longer have to walk on cold floors. The DIY underfloor systems are easy to install. You simply roll them, connect to your electrical system and cover them up. These heating systems rely on radiation to heat both the floors and the room. Needless to say, radiation is the most efficient method of heating a room. You should also note that these systems do not rely on air circulation. They are completely safe for both babies and persons with respiratory problems. DIY underfloor heating systems are popular because they allow the floor of the house to retain the heat by generating heat from beneath the floor surface. All in all, even with the DIY heating systems, it is imperative that you work with a professional in the installation. Give us a call today for the best results in underfloor heating.
Driveway Heating SystemsDriveway heating systems offer the single advantage of effort-free snow removal. They eliminate the pain of shoveling and salting the driveways during snowy winters. They let you stay comfortable inside while they do all the work. These systems rely on mats and cables which heat the driveway automatically to prevent snow and ice buildup. When compared to the cost of shoveling and hiring plow companies, it is much cheaper to use the driveway heating systems. The cost of installation ranges from $14 to $24 per square foot and you can install it on your existing driveway. The best thing is that the system turns on and off automatically depending on the outdoor temperatures. It will cost between $120 and $250 every winter to heat a 1,000 square foot driveway. Deal away with the pain of snow shoveling each winter with the driveway heating systems. With the right team, the system can be installed virtually anywhere on your outdoor space. Call us today for the best advice, best systems, and the best installation services.
Pipe Freeze Prevention SystemsThe pipe freeze prevention systems help reduce downtime and save costs by ensuring your pipes are never out of order. Cold temperatures cause water and other liquids to freeze. Freezing in the pipes creates high pressure inside the pipe and this can cause the pipes to burst leading to serious flooding. The freeze prevention systems rely on self-regulating heating cables which work by keeping the temperature of the pipes above the freezing point. The freeze prevention system is ideal because it prevents freezing from ever occurring. The system monitors the external environment and activates only when necessary. This means there is no need to heat the pipes when there is no chance of freezing occurring. Our pipe freeze prevention systems offer consistent and effective freeze prevention in Toronto households. You never have to worry about inconveniences or hazards that can cost you thousands of dollars in water damage. The systems are also very energy efficient. Call us today to learn more.
Pipe Tracing SystemsPipe tracing systems guarantee that your pipes will never get damaged by freezing. It is easy to install, effective and very affordable. The system helps you to monitor freezing and eliminate the threat of pipe freezing. It has self-regulating cables which go around the pipes and monitor the temperature. When the temperatures begin to fall below freezing point, the system activates and starts to heat the pipes thus preventing freezing within the pipes. This system excels in the prevention of burst or clogged pipes. The system does not just apply heat to the pipes but also works automatically thus guaranteeing you never deal with the issue of freezing pipes. The pipe tracing systems will prevent flooding and extend the life of your pipes. It will give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that the pipes in your home are undamaged regardless of how cold the winters get. Give us a call today to learn more about this system.
Radiant Floor HeatersThe main advantage of radiant floor heaters is that they eliminate the cold, uncomfortable floors that most homeowners deal with. The system also heats the entire room without relying on air circulation. This means it will not spread allergens. Heating is through radiation. You can also use it with your HVAC and install it in just any room including the bathroom. When compared to other heating systems, the radiant heaters are far more effective. This is because radiant heaters redistribute the heat evenly throughout the room and use less energy. This means there are no cold spots in the room as is the case with space heaters. The large surface area that the radiant heaters cover is what makes them more efficient. Radiant heating is, without any doubt, the most efficient and effective method of heating. Call us today to learn more about our radiant floor heaters. As a manufacturer, we customize the size of the heated elements to fit your project.
Roof De-Icing SystemsIce and snow buildup on the roof can cause significant problems. The purpose of the roof de-icing systems is to prevent ice problems on the roof thus easing the potential liabilities that are caused by ice and snow around the drains, eaves, valleys and entire roof systems. With the installation of these low voltage systems, you will get to do away with manual labor or the use of chemicals to eliminate the problem. The use of de-icing cables helps eliminate the ice and snow buildup at the core. The systems work by applying heat which melts any ice or snow that is on the roof. You no longer have to deal with icicles, ice dams or accumulated water and frost damage. Our products are customized to offer the right amount of heat for various applications. You can count on optimal heating solutions that work only when needed and that never burden you with power bills. Call us today to learn more about our roof-deicing systems.
Benefits of Heating Under the Carpet
There are many benefits that come with heating under the carpet. The first benefit is improved hygiene. The main drawback of carpets is that they absorb a lot of dust. When using conventional radiators, the air circulation caused by the radiators will cause these dust particles to rise thus reintroducing them into the air. This can be devastating for persons with respiratory problems. Underfloor heating does not rely on air circulation to work. It relies on radiation which means it heats up objects rather than the air. As a result of this, radiant heat is the ideal heating system to use with carpets.
Electric Systems for Carpet
At Heavenly Heat, we recommend one of three electric heating systems for carpets: EasyMat, EasyWire, or Self-Regulating Cable. Our recommendation will depend on where you want to install the underfloor heating and your budget.
We are very proud of our EasyMat system. It is made of high-quality cables which are woven into flexible strips that can be laid down to cover the area that needs to be heated. These mats are perfect for heating bathrooms, sunrooms, basements, and other rooms where warm floors would improve comfort. Our Easy Mats are available in three heat requirement strengths: 12, 15, and 20 Watts per square foot. If you wish to use the system as a secondary source of heat, we recommend using the 12 Watt per square foot. However, if you need it as a primary source of heat, the 20 Watt per square foot will be perfect.
There are many reasons why you may want to go with the Easy Mat system. The first is the fact that it is 1/8 inches thick. This means once it is installed it will not raise the floor levels. Secondly, Easy Mats are very flexible and can be installed in cramped floor layouts and around fixtures. A thermostat can be installed to maintain the desired temperature.
While it is similar to the Easy Mat, the main difference is the varying heat requirement strengths. Easy Wire is available in heat requirement strengths that range from 10 to 20 Watt per square foot. For use as the primary source of heat in a room, the 20 Watt per square foot heat requirement strength is recommended. The lower watt per square foot options can be used as secondary sources of heat in a room.
Easy Wire operates using the ordinary current that is already in a home thus is very easy to install. It is also 1/8 inches thick which means it doesn’t affect the floor levels. The system is also very flexible and can be installed around fixtures and in a cramped floor layout.
This is a cUL listed parallel heating cable design. It can be used in residential and industrial applications. The unique feature is the fact that the cable regulates its temperature to avoid burn-out or overheating. It will increase or reduce the temperatures based on the surrounding temperatures. As a result, the self-regulating cable is energy efficient, easy to install, low maintenance, and doesn’t burn-out or overheat even when overlapped.
At Heavenly Heat, we understand how hard it can be to choose the best underfloor heating system for your home. That is why we are always eager to hear from you and offer the help you need to make the most informed choice. Give us a call today to find out more about underfloor heating for carpets.
Underfloor Heating Under Carpet
Heavenly Heat has a wide selection of systems to guarantee you end up with the perfect underfloor heating solution for your home.
To get the best results from underfloor heating, you have to pay attention to the thickness of any material that will be placed over the heater. In the case of carpets, it is highly recommended for the carpet to be at least ¼ inches thick and not more than 1 inch thick.
The installed underlay, on the other hand, must have low thermal resistance. The carpet needs to be hessian backed in order to promote the efficient operation of the underfloor heating system. Avoid using felt underlay as it may end up creating a thermal blocker that hinders the effective performance of the heating system.
You can use any type of carpet padding provided it has a density of not less than 6 pounds per cubic foot.
For the best results with underfloor heating, the R-value of your carpet must not be bigger than 1.
When installing an underfloor heating system, the plywood or concrete base where the heating system will be installed should have additional insulation. This causes the system to work more efficiently. Give us a call today to find out more about our insulated underlays which are engineered to promote efficiency.
Transfer of Heat Limits
When using carpets, the floor temperature should not go above 81 degrees F (27 degrees C). Our professional installer will install a thermostat to ensure the underfloor heating system is restricted to the recommended maximum heat. If you need help determining the right heating requirement for your room or need help finding the best underfloor heating system, our experts are here to help. Get in touch with us today to find out more.
|Transfer of Heat Limits|
|Tog||Not more than 2.5|
|RSI||Not more than 0.25|
|R-value||Not more than 1|
|U-value||Not less than 4.0|
What our Clients Say
As a DIY, I really appreciated the snow melting cable from Heavenly Heat because it is so heavily jacketed I had no trouble with damage, testing the cable before and after proved that it withstood whatever it had to during installation. I love that it has a built-in return connection; meaning the cable doesn't have to make the "run" back to the relay panel - this made the install so much easier.
Awesome floor heat system. I have installed Heavenly Heat as well as a couple other brands and this one for the price cannot be beat. It also comes with extras that the more expensive systems do not come with such as the alarm to let you know if you have damaged the cable during installation. The thermostat takes a bit of time to learn and is not as easy, but once you figure out how to program it, its no problem. Will definitely buy again. The floor is already nice and warm.
Good quality and much cheaper than many heating cables out there. No problem at all. I didn’t use the installation strips but bought uncoupling membrane. It makes it much easier to install since you can remove the cable and move them closer. Keep in mind you cannot cut your cable. There is some trial and error until the coverage is perfect with your cable length. Thermostat works well too and is programmable with many options.
