The core of all STEP HEAT designs are centered around its patented self-regulating carbon polymer heating elements. This unique and award-winning technology allows STEP HEAT to overcome the inherent design barriers associated with other conventional and radiant heat systems to gain a quantum leap in overall comfort, system performance and sustainability. To truly understand the benefits of STEP HEAT systems, it helps to understand how heat systems really work. All heat systems have three primary operating functions regardless of type and design:

Creating the heat

Distributing the heat

Controlling the heat consistency

Each of these functions plays a pivotal role in determining the system’s overall performance in the areas of comfort, wellness, efficiency, maintenance, and long-term sustainability. Take a look at some of the inherent design issues for more traditional forms of heating:

STEP HEAT Designs

Reengineering the way we think about heat.

Most traditional heat system designs are focused around how to create the most amount of heat for the least amount of cost per BTU. By using advanced technology, STEP HEAT has changed the way we think about heating by flipping the heat design equation from production focused to consumption focused. All while optimizing comfort, wellness, and efficiency and doing so simply and sustainably.

1. Creating the heat

STEP HEAT’s innovative carbon polymer heating elements efficiently create the heat exactly where it is needed using safe extra low voltage power. Installed just beneath the finished floor surface, there is no heat loss associated with bringing heat back and forth from a remote locations via ducts, pipes, or tubes like other heating systems.

STEP HEAT is designed with the future in mind. Capable of utilizing either AC or DC current, the system can be connected to alternative energy sources either at the time of installation or at any point in the future. 

2. Distributing the heat

How the heat is distributed in the actual space where it is used also makes a substantial difference in the quality of heat and system efficiency. STEP HEAT designs optimize heat distribution 3 ways:

3. Controlling the heat consistency

The STEP Touch® Thermostat is specifically designed with embedded chip logic to continually monitor, evaluate, and adjust the system’s output to avoid wasteful overheating and underheating by providing precise temperature control. This adjustment takes place by signaling the power supply regulator every 1.5 seconds to modulate the heating elements output. As a result, the system provides a continuous and even temperature that is substantially more comfortable and efficient than an on/off full output cycling system. Using an analogy, a car traveling at a consistent speed consumes less fuel than a car continuously starting and stopping.
