Floor heating – environmentally friendly and safe electric floor heating system that provides efficient and uniform temperature distribution throughout the room, according to the mode that you specify. Such a system is commonly used as an additional source of heat – you set for yourself comfortable temperature, which is automatically maintained by special sensors. Floor heating can be a major source of heat.
For apartments, situated on the lower floors or in places where humidity is particularly high, warm floor be the salvation of mold and moisture, and hence of all related to this disease and discomfort. You forget how long can dry laundry and that the house will certainly need to walk in slippers.
In city apartments, heated floors are installed over the entire area or in a particular area (eg, children’s room, bathroom, bedroom or a place where residents spend more time in the apartment). It is also possible to use floor heating glazed loggias or balconies, ramps and stairs, located on the street (to prevent ice formation).
Warm floors convenient and easy to use, require no maintenance (warranty on them is 20 years old). Wet cleaning of the premises where installed floor heating – is carried out as usual. When heated floors, under floor heating are installed, there are no unpleasant odors are released.
Electrical Energy produced warm on the basis of two-cord of the cable.

Please be aware that the system is installed only on the exposed surface, that is, the cable does not fit under the bathtub, washing machine, refrigerator, gas or electric stove, heavy furniture, etc. Thus, the net area of the installation – is the total floor area minus the area of the above equipment.
2) Do you have an opportunity to “bump” the floor
If you are not a problem to raise the floor by 4-5 cm, then you can use solid or sturdy heated floors, and if your apartment, and so low ceilings – you will approach a super-slim floor «heating mat».
3) What is the total electrical load in your home, whether it is possible to increase it
On average, the estimated power mains flat at 4.5 kW.
4) You will also need to choose a temperature controller (thermostat) that will automatically maintain specified thermal conditions in the room.
The thermostat can be programmed and conventional. If your floor heating has a programmable thermostat, you can make an individual mode of work on all days of the week (eg, lower heat during working hours, when no one is home, raising the floor temperature at the time of return to work). A programmable thermostat is recommended mainly for large rooms.
