Benefits of Heated Concrete Floors
While it was once used primarily in industrial settings, polished concrete floors are pretty common in home renovations as well as new-building projects all over the world. The reason polished concrete flooring is so popular is because it is hard-wearing and quite easy to clean. It also adds a sense of modernity and luxury to a living space.
In addition to the impression they create, concrete floors are the perfect choice when it comes to underfloor heating. These floors have a high thermal mass which makes them ideal for heating using underfloor heating systems. Unlike other flooring materials, concrete floors heat up quickly and retain most of the heat they absorb. This is the top reason why heated polished concrete floors are perfect for improving the warmth and comfort of a home.

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.

Types of Concrete Floor Finishes
Concrete is very versatile. It can be installed as a flooring material in many ways.
Polished concrete pour
This is the most common form of concrete flooring. It involves the pouring of a deep layer of concrete into position. It is then polished after it cures.
Polished concrete leveler
With this floor, a thin layer of self-leveling liquid is added to an existing subfloor. Once it dries up it is polished.
Polished concrete overlay
This involves the installation of a thin layer of polished concrete overlay over an existing damaged concrete floor.
Best Underfloor Heating System for Concrete Flooring
A polished concrete floor is the perfect candidate for radiant floor heating because of its heat-retention properties. It heats up fast and retains the heat for longer thus reducing the strain on the underfloor heating system.
When installing a concrete floor as part of a new building, we have several electric heater choices for you to pick from. The system is basically installed within a 2 to 4-inch layer of concrete. The slow heat-up and cool-down time make it the ideal choice for rooms that are used constantly.
The electric underfloor heating system is the perfect choice when you want to heat existing concrete floors or subfloors. The system offers a low-profile installation and has minimal impact on the floor build-up.
Suitable for any Project
Radiant heated concrete flooring is perfect for new-building projects as well as remodels.
In most cases, polished concrete is fitted as part of a new-build construction project. This is because at this point its depth can be considered during the design stage. When used in new-building projects, the heating cables can be installed directly within the concrete before it cures. This leads to an efficient as well as hassle-free installation.
Remodeling Existing Concrete Floors
If your floors are already installed, you can still benefit from underfloor heating. This is because the heating system can still be installed with the existing concrete floors or subfloors. When polished floors are already installed, a low-profile electric floor heater and insulation can be fitted before adding a new layer of a leveling compound and then a polished concrete overlay.
If you are planning a renovation project that features concrete subfloors and you wish to install concrete floor finishes, electric underfloor heating systems may be the best choice. However, before you get started, you need to calculate if the existing structure will be able to support the added weight of concrete. You also need to make sure there is proper insulation.
Cost of Heating Polished Concrete Floors
While the initial installation cost may be a tad high, once the system is installed, underfloor heating will save you a lot of money on your heating bills. This is all thanks to the fact that the system is energy-efficient.
The overall cost of installing an underfloor heating system with polished concrete floors will depend on several factors. The main factors that affect the overall cost include the size of the project, the location, the quality, and the materials of the subfloors as well as the structural strength of the project.
If you have existing concrete floors, getting them polished may cost you about $5 per square foot. This cost will, however, rise significantly if you are doing a new concrete flooring pour. If you are installing a new underfloor heating system as part of the project, the overall cost will be about $12 per square foot. You also have to add the cost of buying your preferred underfloor heating system as well as the accompanying insulation and thermostat.

Installing Radiant Heating with Concrete Floors
The installation process of heated concrete floors varies depending on the system being installed. To get the best results, it is always wise to work with an experienced team of professionals who have reviewed various products and know what will work best for you.
Floor heating systems should be installed with insulation. This will help reduce heat loss as well as enhance the overall energy-efficiency of the system. With that in mind, the first step must always be the installation of insulation. Depending on the heating system that is being installed, the cables will be laid or suspended on the insulation boards. The underfloor heating system must never be turned on while the installed concrete is curing as that may cause damages. When it is dried completely, the concrete can then be polished.
At Heavenly Heat, we are committed to providing you with the best solutions for underfloor heating. Contact us today for advice on the best solution for your concrete floors. Our team will help with the installation.
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.
