In the latest evolution of floor warming technology, Thermosoft offers two electric radiant floor heating products, ThermoFloor® and WarmFlex™, both of which can be installed under carpet tile without cement. ThermoFloor is an integrated floor warming underlayment pad that insulates the subfloor while warming the finished floor. WarmFlex is the same product minus the underlayment pad that allows consumers the flexibility to choose from an assortment of underlayments including foam, fiber, natural or synthetic cork.
Typically, when homeowners or building managers install radiant floor heating, they first cover their floor warming mats with a thin layer of mortar or self-leveling cement. Once the floor warming system is covered with cement, almost any type of floor covering can be installed including tile, laminate, glued-down wood, vinyl or carpet. Even nailed-down wood can be installed provided that nailing strips are also installed between rows of radiant floor heating mats.
Thanks to ThermoFloor and WarmFlex floor warming systems, cement is no longer a requirement under carpet tile. Both products were specially designed for warming laminate floors and were revolutionary in the way they simplified the installation process. All that’s needed is to roll out the floor warming mats, cover with laminate flooring and connect the radiant floor warming mats to the floor warming thermostat and electric power.
To install carpet tile, ThermoFloor floor warming systems must be covered with a layer of 1/8” thick fiberboard also known as medium density fiberboard (MDF) or hardboard. Then the carpet tile can be installed. What’s more, no special tools, saws or skills are required. Fiberboards can be easily cut by scoring 2-3 times along a straight edge with a utility knife and snapping along the cut line. Cutting this way also avoids creating dust that could impede bonding the carpet tiles.
There can’t be an easier way to heat an office, basement or recreation room than with a radiant heated floor from Thermosoft installed in less than a day under carpet tile. Both ThermoFloor and WarmFlex floor warming systems are available for immediate shipping. ThermoFloor is available online at http://www.thermosoft.com. WarmFlex is available online at http://www.homedepot.com simply by searching “warmflex”.
