Whether you're looking to heat ceramic tile, hardwood, laminates or even carpet, Warmzone can guide you through the process by showing you the best options available.
Some of the Most Popular Floor Heating Systems Offered by Warmzone
FilmHeat Floor Heating Systems
The unique FilmHeat In-Floor Heating system features a heating element that is almost paper thin, yet is very effective for heating laminate flooring. The "film" heating element is easy to work with and can be cut on site. One advantage of this system is that because the heating element is so thin, it does not require any floor buildup. It also offers one of the best values for heating your floors. For some homeowners, these two factors are significant selling points.
If you're installing laminate flooring, the FilmHeat heating element is installed directly under the laminate as the flooring itself is being laid out. This system can be installed quickly, making the initial investment more affordable than many other floor heating systems - particularly hydronic (water-based) floor heating systems. The thin panels are cut to their proper length and then placed over the subfloor. The panels are then secured and the electrical connections are then made. (To keep the warranty valid, this part of the installation must be completed by a licensed electrician.) Afterwards the laminate flooring is then applied over the FilmHeat. Simple and effective.
Another tremendous advantage of FilmHeat is that it can be used to heat existing floors! That's right; if you can access your floor joists from below, you can staple up the lightweight heating elements between the joists and then apply Batt insulation over the heating element. This directs all the warmth upward to efficiently heat the floor. (This is the same type of heating element as our RetroHeat floor heating product.)
The FilmHeat under floor heating system consists of heating panels, connection materials, and a unique digital thermostat that includes a 16-amp GFCI breaker and floor sensor for accurate programming.
ComfortTile Floor Heating Systems
As our most popular floor heating system, ComfortTile features thin heating cable that is available off the spool as well as pre-spaced on a mesh backing for easy roll-out installation. The twin-conductor heating cable with single end connection features an industry leading 25-year warranty. The single point connection design of the radiant heating cable allows the installer to connect the cable to the thermostat without having to return the end back to the controller. This further speeds up the installation, helping to reduce the initial costs of installing the system. CT heat cable is safety approved for wet locations and is UL listed in the U.S. and Canada. The hot and cold lead junctions are uniquely designed to make them virtually foolproof.
Customers have a choice of the most advanced thermostats to control the system, including fully programmable controllers that can be programmed to heat according to your daily schedule. For example, on weekdays the system can activate shortly before you wake up and then shutoff when you leave for work. An hour before you return home for the evening, the system can activate once again. In addition to the renowned energy efficient traits of radiant heat, the programmable feature further adds to its efficiency. And each room features its own thermostat, so you can precisely control the heat distribution in your home. There's no heat loss spilling through closed vents as homeowners enjoy the luxurious, efficiently controlled heat from radiant floor warming systems.
Constructed from premium materials to ensure superior performance, ComfortTile floor heating systems have proven to be one of the most effective and reliable floor heating solutions for almost two decades. And the versatile system can be used to heat homes with a variety of floor types. The ComfortTile system is the most recommended cable for heating tile, stone, and marble floors, but because of its design and performance features CT heat cable is also commonly used used to heat laminate and carpet flooring. The heat cable also has an inherent benefit of canceling out harmful electromagnetic fields (EMF). Because the cable is thin (just about 1/8-inch in diameter) it results in minimal floor buildup and flexibility, and makes installation and the ability to customize the layout of the floor heating system simple.
Prodeso Floor Heating Membrane with ComfortTile Heat Cable
ComfortTile heat cable can also be combined with the Prodeso floor heating memebrane. The cost-effective Prodeso system utilizes a flexible membrane with channels for the heat cable, speeding up the installation process and ensuring exact spacing and peak performance. Thinset is typically used to secure the membrane as it is laid out over the subfloor. The CT heat cable is then placed in the channels and another layer of thinset is applied prior to the installation of the tile (or other floor type).
The Prodeso system can also be used outdoors, and is safe under all conditions and weather. It can be used for a wide variety of floor surfaces. It even waterproofs the substrate in the case of overlaying on cracked or imperfectly cured floors with a risk of vapor stress. Installing the floor heating membrane results in a minimal floor buildup of less than a 1/4 inch.
In-Slab Heat Cable
For heating concrete slabs (such as basement floors), nothing can outperform the durable In-Slab heat cable. Despite its premium design and rugged construction, the In-Slab heat cable offers one of the most affordable floor heating options. Prior to the concrete pour, the heat cable is zip-tied to the remesh to ensure proper spacing and depth within the slab. (Ideally, the cable should be about an inch below the surface.)
In-Slab floor heating systems provide an affordable and efficient option for heating basement areas. The single point connection heat cable is safe for use in wet and dry applications. Once installed in the concrete slab, you can apply just about any type of flooring, including hardwood and carpet. The concrete slab makes this system very efficient by storing and distributing the heat evenly.
In-Slab heat cable is safe for use in both wet and dry applications. Designed to produce 10-15 watts per square foot, In-Slab heat cable is the premier radiant floor heating solution for concrete slab applications in both small, custom residential as well as large commercial radiant heating projects.

The Warmzone Advantage
Carrying the industry's most proven and trusted heating solutions is only a small part of "the Warmzone Advantage".

These services ultimately save customers time and money in the long run (not to mention headaches). Radiant heat installers can set up a time that is convenient for them and attend a training course specific to their install. Electrical and system design experts are on hand to answer any questions the attendee may have. This training can be completed online via Webex or at our corporate office in Salt Lake City, and usually takes less than an hour.
