Electric Undertile Heating

Product Description

Warmup undertile heating is a system of low-temperature electric radiant elements which are laid directly under the floor covering and deliver luxurious and efficient heating for residential and commercial properties, including wet areas. Undertile heating can be used as either background heating to remove the chill of tiles, or in conjunction with carpet heating (or other forms of heating) as a primary heat source, and is suitable for concrete or timber floors. 

The Warmup Undertile Heating element is a multi-stranded conductor, Teflon insulated (fluoropolymer), full earth screen with outer PVC insulation. All heating elements are factory terminated and available in 13 different sizes. The element has an overall diameter of 2.40mm. Each different element length is colour coded to ensure the correct element is used. The heating element is laid (evenly spaced) directly on top of the floor to be tiled and then covered with a specially formulated protective screed (optional). It offers a perfect substrate for laying tiles and when used in conjunction with a flexible tile adhesive, will remain stable under tiles over concrete and if used over wooden floors, a stable overlay is required. Warmup undertile heating installation will add approximately 3-4mm to the floor height when a protective screed is used.

Connection to power is made via cold tails brought up from the floor surface, hidden within the wall cavity, to the point of control. Proximity to the tiled surface results in significantly increased response time in comparison with other in-floor heating systems. As such, maximum efficiency can be achieved by control using a floor sensing thermostat. 

Warmup electric undertile heating:

  • can be installed in new and existing homes, hotels, aged care facilities, apartments and terraced homes;
  • can be used with ceramic, porcelain, terracotta, stone, slate, marble or wood;
  • is quick and easy to install.

Maximum efficiency can be achieved by using a floor sensing thermostat.

The heating elements and controls are approved and certified to New Zealand and International standards.

Warmup electric undertile heating is cost-effective to install and run.
