Under Carpet Heating

STEP Warmfloor heating elements can be used under carpet.

Out of all the commonly used finished floor materials, carpet provides the warmest sensation on the floor. Even though that is the case, many carpet installations can benefit from the use of a radiant heat system, especially if the floor is over an unheated space. Our 3/16” thick heating elements can be placed directly under the carpet pad and will not be affected by heavy furniture being placed on them. The self-regulating properties guarantee that they will never overheat, making them completely safe.

Carpet Underfloor Heating Installation

While carpet has one of the highest insulating values out of the commonly used finished floor materials, STEP Warmfloor heating elements can be placed upwards of 6 to 8 inches apart and will still provide even heat across the floor. Care must be taken in the proper sizing of the system, the proper selection of thermal insulation, and most importantly, the proper selection of the carpet cushion to ensure that the system will provide even heat distribution. An element spacing larger than 6 to 8 inches will have a cold stripe down the center of that spacing, resulting in undesirable performance. A spacing tighter than 6 inches, even down to 1 inch, is used to increase the floor response time to temperature changes in the room.
