Quiet Warmth Film Specifications





.    A conductive ink technology, combines over 30 years of patented radiant heat science.
.    Use with most floating laminate, engineered wood brands, and floating tile floors like SnapStone, Avaire, and Eclipse brands.

.    World's easiest radiant heat system to install. Roll out and cut to fit. No Mess, No fuss.
.    Disperses a fast, more evenly consistent heat throughout the entire floor.
.    Ultra-thin design, only .016" thick
.    Saves money by consuming up to 50% less power than traditional wired systems.



ADVANTAGES

QuietWarmth vs. Other Electric Floor Systems
.    There is no easier radiant floor heating system to install.
Simple 3 step process!
1.    Install any recommended vapor barriers and install the flooring underlayment.
2.    Roll out electric radiant heat film and run factory attached leads to a junction box.
3.    Lay down floating floor materials.
.    Warms your floor as well as the entire room.
.    Minimal thickness profile. Ultra-thin (less than .016") heated panels keeps same floor heights through room transitions.
.    Provides uniform heat. Your floor is heated uniformly with no gaps and the radiant heat is dispersed evenly throughout the room.
.    Quiets your floor.
.    No cumbersome wires. 10' lead wires are connected to one end of each mat for easy routing and final connecting to the thermostat.
.    Safety certified by ETL in compliance with UL Standards for radiant flooring in the USA and Canada.
.    Energy efficient design, can save up to 50% the energy of any other radiant heat system.

QuietWarmth vs. Forced Air

.    Energy saving. More efficient because warmth is concentrated near the floor and not the ceiling. Each room is individually zoned, heating only the rooms that are occupied.
.    More comfortable. Radiant floor heat warms the objects in the room and not the air providing the best thermal comfort system available.
.    Quiet, clean and hypoallergenic. No noisy fans blowing dust around.
.    Simpler, lower cost 3 step installation.
1.    Install underlayment.
2.    Roll out electric radiant heat film.
3.    Install upper vapor barrier and flooring down.

QuietWarmth vs. Hydronic (water)

.    Maintenance free. No mechanical heaters to heat the water and pumps to move the water. No potential maintenance issues to worry about.
.    Even heat distribution. Water near the end of the system has cooled compared to water at the beginning of the system.
.    More efficient. Water systems must heat the water, then move the water by pumping it through pipes. With Floating Floor Heat, all the electric power is used to heat the floor.
.    Does not raise the floor. Most hydronic systems raise the floorlevel by as much as 114 inches to make room for the water pipes.
.    Simpler, lower cost installation. No water heaters, pumps, manifolds tubing and other mechanical parts.

QuietWarmth vs. Electric Baseboard

.    More efficient and more even heat distribution. Baseboard heating is located at the room perimeter and overheats the outside of the room. It does not warm the floor or your feet.
.    Safer. Baseboard heating can be hot to the touch.
.    Better appearance. Baseboard heaters are unsightly while Floating
