Additional Information about Speedheat®:
Speedheat offers electric radiant heating solutions that can be installed under virtually any flooring material including: carpet, ceramic tile, stone, floating wood, laminates, vinyl and more. Speedheat's Generation4™ systems are easy to install in a single room or throughout an entire house. Speedheat offers the ultimate in flexibility, control and comfort. Generation4™ products include: TileWarm™ - WoodBeWarmer™ - CarpetMate™ and ShowerWarm™.
Another unique "zone heating" option is RugBuddy™ -- the only UL-listed heating mat in the world, approved for use under area rugs. It is an ideal solution when installing fixed electric radiant floor heating is not an option. Like an electric blanket for the floor, RugBuddy™ turns regular area rugs into invisible space heaters and is an ideal solution for warming cold spots in any room of the home or office.
The idea behind electric radiant floor heating is really quite simple -- by installing a heating element under the flooring material, heat naturally radiates from the ground up and provides unparalleled gentle comfort. While the concept behind Speedheat's patented Generation4™ (G4) heating system is easy to comprehend, the advanced technology behind their products offers many distinct advantages and sets them apart in the industry.
"Because Speedheat's Generation4™ heating element is optimally engineered to be 'in touch' with floor finishes, it warms floors faster than any other systems and at lower, safer temperatures," explains Pieter Jansens, Chairman of Speedheat International. "Our G4 element improves comfort, health and safety. It also protects sensitive flooring and slashes energy consumption. Furthermore, only Speedheat is fully customized to meet the specific needs of each application."
Backed by the Industry's Best Safety and Satisfaction Guarantees:
Only Speedheat's G4™ systems feature the patented PTCSelfControl™ flexible heating element that is the thinnest in the industry at less than 1/16" in diameter. The self-regulating element prevents overheating, and the multi-stranded core is protected with a tough Tefzel® outer sheath to resist abrasion and aging. All Speedheat® products have undergone rigorous testing, including complete submersion in water while energized. All systems feature a full-surround ground screen that is an effective EMR, EMI and RFI shield, and GFCI protection provides absolute electrical safety. Speedheat's products are all UL-listed and National Electric Code (NEC) compliant.
