Warmup’s foil heater system is constructed using dual core fluoropolymer insulated heating cables which are located between two layers of specially reinforced aluminium foil. The heating cables within the foil are evenly spaced and combine with the thermal properties of the aluminium to ensure an even heat distribution throughout the room.
Key Features of the Warmup Foil Heating System
The Warmup foil systems are the best heating choice if you are looking to heat a carpeted, vinyl or wooden floor. They offer streamlined radiant heat and have gone through vigorous testing to ensure its compatibility with Amtico and Karndean flooring. When using the Warmup foil heat mats the flooring finish must not exceed 18mm and should be able to withstand up to 27°C. If you are unsure it is recommended to check with the manufacturer to ensure its compatibility with electric underfloor heating.
The foil heating mats are available in several convenient sizes, the maximum being suitable for heating a 12m² room. Its advised to use larger mats as much as possible, and the smaller mats as fillers. When it comes to installing the mats its suggested that they should cover roughly 80% of your floor area. The mats should be stretched and secured to the floor using the tape provided. The foil mats can be installed directly under the floor finish, with no self-leveling required. The wire based system can be adapted to fit around objects, meaning no need for complicated wiring, its important to note though that the foil mat can be cut and re-positioned, but the wire cannot be cut. This heating system is also a perfect choice for renovations as the super thin aluminium foil will not raise floor levels. For full instruction please refer to the installation manual and view our installation video that can be found at the bottom of this page.
The Foil heating system is compatible with the entire range of Warmup thermostats including the smart wifi 4iE thermostats, which will effortlessly ensure you are on the best tariff and that the system is set at the right temperature.
For increased efficiency it is recommended to use Warmup’s insulated underlay and dual overlay alongside the foil heater system. By using these additions it will dramatically reduce heat-up times by at least 50%, and will also reduce heat loss from the system.
The Warmup foil mat heating systems come with a 15 year warranty and a safety net installation guarantee. This guarantee covers you from any accidental damaged caused to the system upon installation. Should this occur, Warmup will replace it with another heater of the same model for free.
