#1 Enhance your floors’ performance and function with heat!

Flooring provides a beautiful palette for the rest of your home and can also enhance its performance or even stand out as a statement piece on its own. Tile, vinyl and other options come in a variety of styles and designs that provide an invaluable aesthetic function to any home. In-floor heat can enhance this function by creating a warm and comfortable floor underfoot that adds a touch of luxury and comfort to any flooring surface.

#2 Heat where you want it with customization

Combine the beauty and durability of stone, tile, or resilient floor coverings (WPC, LVT, LVP, etc.,) with the comfort of an electric floor warming system to bring a touch of luxury into any room of the home. DITRA-HEAT is the only electric floor warming system that directly incorporates uncoupling technology to ensure that floors aren’t susceptible to cracked tiles and grout. Cables can be placed wherever heat is desired for customized heating zones, and no leveling compounds are required, which makes for a quick and easy installation.

A radiant floor heating system can use either a series of hot water tubes or wires under the floor to create a consistent heat.   This also allows heat to specific areas of your home with more warmth than your standard forced-air system. This means that homeowners can now customize areas which will receive heat, whether it be the full floor or specific zones. With the electric heat, a specialized thermostat is installed allowing the customization of timing and temperature.  A warm floor prior to entering the shower in the morning!  This enhances efficiency by minimizing the use of electricity in hours where the space is not being used.

#3 In-floor heat brings warmth, comfort, and value!

What does this mean to you as a homeowner? This additional heating system adds warmth and comfort to your home that you can enjoy all year. Picture getting out of your warm, cozy bed early in the morning only to step on your bathroom tile that feels like an icy frozen lake.  Now you could set your timer for one hour prior to waking up so instead of an ice-cold tile you’re stepping into a warm, inviting space.Increase home value with in floor heat
Ceramic tile is the quintessential product for just about any style and budget. The variety of available colors, shapes, patterns, and sizes are unending, allowing you to create a look that fits your unique style whether it be traditional, contemporary or somewhere in between.

BONUS #4 Health Benefits

There are also certain health benefits that arise from the use of radiant heat. On cold days when we are more apt to turn up our furnaces, the dry warmer air has a tendency to leave our sinuses dried out.  With radiant heat only warming surfaces and not affecting the air, this problem then disappears. Radiant heat also does not rely on the use of fans, ducts and registers to distribute the air.  This can help reduce exposure to dust and seasonal allergies in the home.
Regardless of the style, you select to incorporate radiant heat, it is a worthwhile investment that will bring warmth, comfort, and value to your home for decades to come.
