Energy Efficient

Efficiency gains of 30-60% compared to line voltage cable/mat systems and traditional hydronic systems.

Alternative Energy Ready

With AC or DC power options, you can connect to alternative energy now, or at anytime in the future.

Better Health

Reduces overheated dry air, dust, allergens, and other harmful airborne contaminants circulated by traditional forced air systems.

Unmatched Versatility

From hardwood floors to carpets, STEP® HEAT is compatible with almost any flooring type.

This is hard to estimate because the technology is still comparatively new. The original heat mats were first installed well over thirty years ago and are still in use today. On this basis, we would estimate that the average lifespan of a heated floor mat can be anywhere from 30-50 years. 

Radiant heat mats do not suffer from worn parts or mechanical failings like conventional heating systems and do not require any maintenance. 

Because of this, our underfloor heating matting comes with a minimum warranty period of twenty years. Twice the length of typical warranties for traditional heating systems.

We recommend that you do not abruptly switch these heating mats on and off.

In homes with wood floors, this will cause stress to the wood fibers, which could lead to stress fractures and ultimately warping.

Due to the award-winning material properties of our heat mats and proprietary system designs, we recommend “Set It and Forget It” to maximize efficiency and comfort. 

It is much better to simply raise or lower the temperature with your smart control for normal use, but It is fine to turn the heat mats off if you are leaving for an extended period of time.

Yes. These heated floor mats were designed to be installed under laminate flooring as well as most other types of floor. 

Our radiant heating mats are self-regulating which means they can never overheat and ensures the integrity of your flooring. 

The surface temperature of the heat mat is less than the temperature of window solar gain on a warm spring day.

It is important to bear in mind that a suitable, non-conductive underlay must be used when installing electric heat mats under laminate flooring and thermal insulation must be installed under the heating elements.

Generally speaking, underfloor heating will be cheaper than radiators. Long-term you can expect both significant savings and a high return on your initial investment. 

Because each heated area has its own unique heating dynamics that affect performance and projected savings over the life of the system, we provide a comparative heat loss and consumption analysis specific to your application.

This service is provided completely free of charge and will give you an accurate forecast of your anticipated return on investment.

No. Our heating mats for floors do not pose a risk as a fire hazard. 

Firstly, these electric heating mats for floors are a low voltage system that operates with a 24V Safe Extra Low Voltage (SELV) rating protection. This means that there is no grounding required so they are even approved for wet areas such as showers, spa benches, and flood-prone or water intrusive areas.

Secondly, each heated floor mat is self-regulating. The elements act as a continuous heat sensor adjusting to changes in room temperature and cannot overheat. 

All system listings and approvals are readily available upon request.

Radiant floor systems typically have a higher upfront installation cost than other traditional heating systems such as forced air furnaces, hydro air, hot water baseboards, and heat pumps. 

However, the higher upfront installed cost for a radiant floor heat mat system is often substantially offset by long-term operating cost savings over the life of the system.

This is achieved through efficiency savings, a lack of scheduled maintenance savings, and a lack of replacement parts/system replacement savings. 

When comfort, wellness, sustainability, and hassle-free operation, are the key decision drivers, our heated floor mat system’s performance stands above the rest.

Installation costs for radiant floor heat mat systems will vary significantly for each unique project.

Factors that influence the cost of installation include (but are not limited to):

  • House design 
  • Power supply locations 
  • Wiring method 
  • Area labor rates 
  • Trade installer types

To help clients and project teams ascertain the potential viability of our floor heating mat systems we offer installation estimating tools to create installation estimates for projects upon request.

No. Another major benefit of radiant heat mats comes from their energy efficiency. 

An independent study has validated that our heat mat material properties are designed to use 2X less output when compared to hot water radiant tube systems and 2.5X less output when compared to line voltage-powered cable and mat radiant systems. 

A consumption analysis comparison can be undertaken for your specific application.

A typical floor warming or supplemental heat application has a design output of 4.5-5 watts per square foot which is roughly 50% of the total square footage of the room. 

In many cases, this is also sufficient to satisfy the primary heating needs of newly constructed homes built to current energy code requirements. 

For primary heating, a heat loss analysis must be undertaken to account for all factors (size of the heating space, type of flooring, amount of insulation, etc.) to determine the optimum system size.
