Electric Underfloor Heating

Description:

In view of the increasing oil and gas prices, electrical energy is increasingly becoming the only sensible and stable alternative to heat our homes. Electrical energy can be used anywhere without major installation costs without the need of expensive chimneys, gas lines to be installed or oil tanks to be approved.

Underfloor heating, an idea first used by the ancient Romans, is once again becoming the most popular form of heating in the world. Electric underfloor heating gives a constant and extremely comfortable level of heat, without the use of burners, boilers or blasts of hot air from noisy fans or blowers that stir up dirt and dust. The absence of unsightly radiators makes furniture placement easier and creates a safer home environment with no exposed hot surfaces. Therefore electric underfloor heating is an ideal way of heating our homes as it provides a constant and comfortable warmth with healthy, clean, quiet and safe heat at all times.

Our unique AHT Underfloor Heating system, based on the revelutionary Amorphous Metal Ribbon heating technology, has significant advantages over all other types of electric underfloor heating systems or hot water systems:

  • It fits directly under all types of floor covering
  • It reaches working temperatures faster than any other system
  • It generates more consistent heat
  • It is less costly and more economical to operate
  • It has a low profile and superior flexibility
  • It is extremely simple and easy to install
  • It is perfectly safe from electrical shock hazards and electromagnetic radiation
  • It is reliable and durable

  • It can be installed directly under any type of floor covering

AHT heating mats are constructed from wide metallic ribbons that cover at least 25% of the floor area (compared to only 1% to 2% with heating wires). This large heat transfer area allows the heating element to operate at very low temperatures of about 30 degrees (compared to the typical temperature range of more than 60 degrees at the core of a common heating wire) and still generate the required heat to the surrounding area. The low working temperature allows direct installation of ceramic tile, timber, parquet or carpet above the heating mats with no danger of damaging the color, texture or coating of these delicate floor coverings.

It reaches working temperatures faster than other systems

The large heat transfer area of the heating ribbons and the short distance between the heating element and the floor covering ensure that the floor temperature reaches the desired level faster than wire systems buried deeper in the floor.

It generates more consistent heat

AHT heating mats are constructed from wide metallic ribbons that cover at least 25% of the floor area (compared to only 1% to 2% with heating wires). This high coverage creates extremely consistent heating over the top of the floor covering.

It is less costly and more economical to operate

Because AHT heating mats reach the desired working temperature faster, activating the system to reach a desired temperature can be started later than a comparable wire-based system, resulting in lower operating costs. The heating ribbons transfer all the electrical energy into heat and as the ribbon thickness is minimal (1/1000th inch), heat is not stored in the heating element itself; all heat is distributed into the surrounding area -resulting in superior economical operating costs.

It has a low profile and superior flexibility

The heating ribbon is only 1/1000th inch thick. The total mat thickness, including the double insulation, is less than 1/10th inch therefore perfectly suited not only for installation in new buildings, but also for renovation, refurbishment and retrofitting projects. State-of-the-art technology mean virtually no change to the elevation of the floor during renovations.

It is extremely simple and easy to install

Just lay the heating mats on the sub-floor, connect the electrical cables and you are ready to cover the floor with any type of covering.

It is reliable and durable and safe

The AHT amorphous metal underfloor heating system will last for many, many years, with minimal maintenance, giving trouble-free, comfortable and safe All-Around Warmth ,way into the future, at low cost.
