Electric Heating Systems for Carpet

The most commonly used floor heating solution with carpet is the Warmup Foil Heater. Foil Heater is specifically suitable for use with floating floors and large and regular shaped areas. The super-thin, fully earthed, flat aluminum foil will not raise the floor levels visibly, hence why it makes a great solution for renovations.

under carpet heating

There are several benefits to having under carpet heating. First of all hygiene. Carpets tend to absorb dust. Furthermore, the hot air from conventional radiators causes the air in the room to circulate. As a result of this, they circulate the dust and impurities. Underfloor heating heats up objects rather than the air and does not cause air circulation. Radiant heat is, therefore, the most suitable heating system for carpets.

installation for carpet

When installing the system, the concrete or plywood base on which the heating system is installed on should have additional insulation. This promotes the efficient operation of the system. Warmup insulation boards or Warmup Insulated Underlay are designed to give the best performance for the floor heater to provide heat through the underlay and the carpet on top.

Limits of Heat Transfer

The floor temperature should not exceed 81°F (27 °C), which is secured by using a thermostat, means that the floor heating system is restricted to a certain maximum heat output. If you need help determining the heating requirement of your room and deciding on the suitable underfloor heating system, our expert team is available to help and can give you an estimate for heat loss and the heat output of the system and help you to choose the right products to your home.

The figures below are for electric underfloor heating systems only. Water systems have a broader range of limits due to the variables of the specification.
