Energy Saving Electric Floor Heating Systems from ThermoSoft International Corporation Reduce Heating Costs Up to 40% During Winter

With winter quickly approaching, and the cold weather already in full swing all around the U.S. and Canada, many people are already feeling the chilly effect on their heating bills. But heating your home doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. ThermoSoft International Corporation, a market leading manufacturer of do-it-yourself radiant floor heating systems, can help limit these costs.

“Our floating floor electric underfloor heating systems are more efficient because warmth is concentrated near the floor, not the ceiling, heating only the rooms where you need the warmth when you want it,” said Dr. Eric Kochman, President of ThermoSoft. “This can save consumers up to 40% in energy costs, something everyone can appreciate during this economy.”

Unlike forced hot air systems, which blow hot air from the ceiling, radiant floor heating systems heat the home in the most efficient way possible, from the floor up. The floor is consistently comfortable, without hot spots or cold drafts, and when your feet are warm, your whole body is warm. Dust, pollen and other allergens can also be disturbed with a forced hot air system, so electric floor heating systems are preferable for those with allergies.

Because ThermoSoft products are more energy- efficient than regular heating systems, ThermoSoft also has the green aspect to it — thus better for both your wallet and the environment. Energy-saving programmable controls help ThermoFloor achieve up to 30-40% energy savings compared to conventional gas forced-air heating systems.

While most traditional floor warming systems must be embedded in cement or require additional underlayment padding under the floating floors, ThermoSoft offers a revolutionary radiant floor heating system for floating laminate and engineered wood floors. This electric floor heating system, ThermoFloor, installs directly under laminate, wood and engineered wood and also replaces the generic foam pads that are normally laid under these types of floors. ThermoTile radiant floor heating system is used for tile floors.

Both systems are installation-friendly and do not require any professional assistance, so the do-it-yourselfer can easily install the system. “ThermoSoft floors are a great DIY project for anyone,” said Kochman. “Simply roll out ThermoFloor heating pads, route the lead wires to power, duct tape the seams, and lay the floor. There is no easier way to achieve a warm floor than with ThermoFloor.”

ThermoFloor radiant floor heating systems should last a lifetime, and ThermoSoft floating floor warming systems are warranted for 10 years, making them a great, money saving investment for any home.
