Have you ever installed underfloor heating?
If so, you may be familiar with a loose cable that you configure on-site or a mesh product that is rolled out, cut and flipped to cover the area to be heated. We want to tell you about the easiest way to heat your floors, guaranteeing even heat coverage with no mess every single time. We are talking about Nuheat Mat, an electric radiant floor heating solution available in over 70 standard sizes or custom built to order to fit any space.
Nuheat Mats are built like an electric blanket that is only 1/8 of an inch thick, great for renovations to keep a low floor profile. This electric heating system warms tile, stone and laminate engineered wood floors in 120V or 240V options. For basic square and rectangle shaped rooms simply pick up a Nuheat standard mat or combination of multiple standard mats right off the shelf, in stock at Avalon Flooring. For rooms with angles and curves a Nuheat Custom Mat can be built to the exact specification in 3 days plus shipping. For a custom mat simply sketch up the room with all dimensions including where you would like the cold leads for the thermostat and bring it to Avalon Flooring.
This heating resolution eliminates the majority of time and labor associated with installing an evenly heated floor. Installation is a quick three step process, with a notched trowel spread a thin layer of thinset onto your sub-floor, lay down the mat, and apply one more scratch coat of thinset on top; you can then install your tile the same day! Nuheat mats are UL certified with a 25-year warranty, and can even be used in wet applications such as showers and benches. The standard and custom mats are energy efficient, producing 12 watts per square foot and cover 41 BTUs per square foot.
Nuheat is most commonly used in bathrooms and kitchens, but are increasingly popular in living rooms, cold basements and even counter-tops. Stop in at any Avalon location to check out the product and ask any questions, we look forward to heating up your next project with the ultimate solution to underfloor heating!
