Warmup® Publishes Electric Floor Heating Running Cost Findings:
Discover how much Warmup® Electric Floor Heating Systems cost to run in their newly published brochure. In conjunction, they have launched an online calculator, called The Warmup Energy Expert™. Both are available at http://www.warmup.com to provide consumers with accurate running costs for their heaters. Leading manufacturer Warmup® concludes that their Systems can heat up to 10 square feet of flooring for less than one penny per hour.
Because gas and oil prices have risen more sharply than electricity since 2002, electricity is a much cheaper heating alternative. Add to that the unique way floor heating works, and you have a very efficient heating method for pennies per day (based on a DoE national average of 9 cents).
"Frequently we are asked how much our floor heating systems cost to run by consumers, building contractors and flooring specialists" said Sharon Mangino, General Manager at Warmup in Danbury, CT. "Warmup built a facility to International EN442-2 Standards to provide precise and reliable results on heat up times, running costs and best operating procedures for our radiant floor heating system, which we include in our brochure." she said.
The tests show consumers how installing inexpensive insulation boards cut the Systems heat-up times by up to 80%. The faster your room heats up, the less your heating system is on, saving money. Once the floor is warm, the energy-star rated thermostat only cycles on to maintain the temperature, thereby running only 40%-60% of the time.
Zoning lets you heat only those rooms in use, adding to the savings. It's ideal in spring and autumn to take the chill out of a room, without having to heat the entire house.
With the highest wattage in the under floor heating market, at 14 watts per sq. ft., it can be used as a sole heating source. Competitively priced, Warmup® has a flexible range of heaters for almost all floor types to suit any size room. Warmup® offers a transferable 30-Year Warranty, SafetyNet Installation Guarantee, live 24/7 Technical Support and a no-obligation Quotation and Layout Service provided within 2 business days (M-F).
