UNDER CARPET ELECTRIC UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Under carpet heating mats have been specifically developed to provide invisible heating under carpet and floating timber floors. The 500mm wide foil mats are ideal for large or small areas and are taped onto the underlay. Heating very close to the floor surface has a fast response time and should reach temperature in the first 15-30 minutes.
The foil mats consists of a twin conducting heating element sandwiched between two layers of reinforced aluminium foil, providing an even distribution of heat.
The heating mat has a heat output of 140W /m² and is available in 500mm wide pre-fabricated mats in a variety of pre-determined lengths. Comfort Heat staff will help select the correct mat length for your heated area.
The under carpet heating mat is taped down on top of the underlay before the carpet is installed. Unlike under tile or in-slab heating cables, under carpet mats can be installed up to 300mm off walls, fixtures and furniture within a floor area. Comfort Heat staff can design the best installation to achieve a comfortable operation.
Due to the height of the carpet and underlay, it is difficult to install a sensor tube as with other floor heating installations. The electrician will still need to install conduits within the wall but only the sensor wire can be installed in the floor. To enable a spare sensor in case the original sensor fails over time, a second sensor can be installed under the carpet to provide some redundancy. Both sensors are taped to the under carpet foil mat between two heating wires but only one will be connected to the thermostat.
