Electric Interior Slab Heating Is a Worthwhile Investment

Revolutionary electric indoor slab heating is bringing
convenient and maintenance free heating to residential and commercial
property owners. With this modern heating solution, even heat is now
transferred throughout the slab of a floor, hassle free.
So what is electric indoor slab heating? It’s an electric heating
cable that’s intertwined under thick slab floors. Up till now, electric
floor heating was limited to “thin slab” or tile floors. Due to reduced
heat output, if an installer wanted to put electric floor heating in
thick slab, he had to take the extra step of putting an extra thin slab
on top of his new thicker slab to bring the heating cable to the top of
the floor. This sometimes created higher costs and complications.
SlabHeat cable is a higher output electric wire, capable of heating the
entire thick slab and room above, creating a reliable easy install for
SlabHeat can heat one entire space or it can be zoned into smaller
areas for better heat control. The cable gets connected to a SunStat
Control by a 120 or 240 VAC line power for control of turning the heat
on and off.
Electric slab heating is 100% efficient. Every dollar you spend on
energy goes into heating the space. No chimneys or flue pipes for heat
to go up and out of. No parasitic energy costs of pumps or controls.
No annual maintenance costs; because there is no burner, there is no
need to have a costly maintenance program to keep your heat plant and
controls in working order.
Electric slab heating is well suited for concrete floors found in
basements, garages, sunrooms, offices, warehouses and many other thick
slab flooring. SlabHeat works well for new construction jobs or
remodeling because it can be installed over top of an existing slab.
No longer will your concrete flooring feel cold under your feet. The
number of BTUs given off by the flooring is enough for consistent, warm
heat. Gone are the days of waiting 15 minutes for the heat to kick on
and provide warmth. SlabHeat is efficient; it’s quiet and requires no
venting or duct work.
