FloorHeat Systems’ new electric radiant floor heating system is specifically designed for ease of installation. Now, it couldn’t be easier for homeowners to heat the kitchen, family room, addition or basement floor than with new InfraFloor Film.
FloorHeat Systems’ new electric radiant floor heating product, brand name InfraFloor Film, is specifically designed for ease of installation by do-it-yourselfers and professionals. What makes it so easy is that it can be installed without cement, thin-set mortar or adhesive of any kind. Now, it couldn’t be easier to heat the kitchen, family room, addition, basement or any other room in the home or office.
No mixing of cement or spreading adhesive. All that’s needed is to roll out the three layers of the floor heating system: 1) insulation underlayment, 2) InfraFloor electric radiant floor heating film and 3) vapor barrier; then install a floating laminate or wood floor per the normal instructions.
InfraFloor Film comes in 36-inch wide rolls and lengths up to thirty feet to easily cover large rooms quickly and easily. Narrower 18-inch wide rolls are also available for fitting tight spaces. The electric radiant floor heating pattern is uniform and even across the surface of InfraFloor Film so there are no hot or cold spots in the warm floor.
Another benefit if using InfraFloor Film for floor heating is that it minimizes raising the floor height so doors and jams will not need trimming. InfraFloor Film is about as thick as a magazine cover and the insulation underlayment ranges from 1/8” to 3/16” depending on material. FloorHeat Systems offers two underlayment choices: a 1/8” compressed fiber with an R-value of 4 per inch and a synthetic cork with R-value of 8 per inch. Besides working with these two premium underlayments, InfraFloor Film is compatible with virtually any flooring underlayment.
Although installing the electric radiant floor heat couldn’t be easier, a qualified electrician is recommended for installing the electric radiant floor heating thermostat. A programmable thermostat is also recommended for maximizing energy savings.
