Say goodbye to cold floors in the bathroom,
kitchen, entry foyers or even beautifully tiled living room with radiant
electric floor heating.
Our extra thin heating mats take up only 1/8”, and
therefore they can easily be installed everywhere where ceramic, marble or stone
tiles are installed. The installation is a snap and will not take more than 15%
of the time needed to tile the floor under normal conditions.
Each Elektra underfloor heating mat comes as a roll of
fiberglass mesh with the heating wire in it. Each is 20" wide and different
lengths. All are made for US market in Europe by Elektra.
Take the square footage measurment since you can make
any size coverage by cutting the mesh (but not the heating wire) and spreading
it in the shape needed.
Sizes are anywhere from 11 sq. ft. coverage up to a 133 sq. ft.
After that - more than one can be used.
(Parallel connection only).
Aside from being made for either 110-120Volts or
230-240Volts heating mats come in few distinct models:
It can have 1 power supply cord (a bit
thicker mat) or 2 power supply cords (thinner and also bit
cheaper but just as good in quality) mat.
In those they can be either 9 Watts per
square foot or 14 Watts per square foot.
For complete installation a dedicated line-voltage thermostat
(preferably sensing floor temperature) is also required.
The heating fiberglass mesh based mat is installed right
beneath the new tiled flooring which means that the heat can be regulated fast
without annoying delays while using our dedicated line voltage thermostat with
special floor temperature sensor . This is the best use of the energy for either
heating up the room or just to bring much needed comfort to otherwise pretty but
unpleasantly cold ceramic tiled floors. The system is 100% fault free,
warranted for 10 years while professionally installed and simple enough for
DIY’s as well.
We also have somewhat similar but different in terms of
installation requirements product available for immediate shipping:
A heating wire on the spool.
But remember - Electricity can be deadly and wiring done
incorrectly can kill and start deadly and destructive fires. If you have
the slightest doubt about your wiring ability, please contact a licensed
electrician or repairman before doing any diagnosis or repairs.
