Dr. David Burbank bought over 4600 acres from the Verdugo holding company in 1867 and some of this land eventually was given the moniker "Burbank, California". Before the Hollywood lights started to shine on the town, and before the "Bob Hope airport", Burbank was primarily known for its manufacturing.
ThermoSoft is also known for its manufacturing or heating products, and namely electric radiant floor heating. DK Construction of Burbank was looking for some underfloor heating for a ceramic tile/stone flooring job they were working on. "Typically, being a U.S.A. manufacturer helps us to stand apart from our competitors in the floor warming marketplace," says Steve Kaempf, Vice President of Sales at Thermosoft International. "Today, many radiant floor heating products are being imported from China, India or some other place. It is unique to be a U.S. manufacturer of floor heating, and it could be the difference of whether people use us or not." ThermoSoft is a fully integrated manufacturer of their floor heating system, manufacturing everything from the lead wires of the systems, down to the actual cables themselves. "People love the fact that when they are talking to us about their floor warming jobs, they are talking to someone that is sitting a few feet from where the stuff is actually being made," continued Steve. ThermoSoft's technical support team is "homegrown" as well, serving their floor warming systems' customers from a manufacturer's perspective. "Whether it be in sunny California, or elsewhere, you can take our manufacturer's warranty to the bank! It is much different than having someone make a promise to you about someone else's product in some other country!"
This winter it became perfectly clear that the mankind's effort to solve the global warming crisis is a mission accomplished. Now is the time, and ThermoSoft is the company, leading the way to winning the war against global cooling with energy-efficient radiant floor warming.
Never was it more evident that the mission against global warming was fait accompli than when the December 2013 Australasian Antarctic Expedition of global warming scientists verified the existence of abundant levels of ice in Antarctica. The enduring photo of the two-ton, ice-strengthened ship, the Akademik Shokalskiy, stuck in the Antarctic ice, demonstrated global warming's retreat as convincingly as the adventuresome polar bear, cruising adrift a tip of the iceberg, alerted millions to its inconvenience.
With the global warming bump-in-the-road behind us, now is the time to move forward to the real crisis plaguing humanity. Global cooling's debilitating effects have been felt across America during this winter's record low temperatures and high snowfalls. The absolute truth is that there's nothing that can be done about the weather, but there is something that can be done to defeat global cooling and keep warm, comfortable, healthy and in good spirits.
Don't neglect the feet. One of the primary ways to keeping warm, comfortable and healthy is keeping the feet warm. There is no better way to keep the feet and the whole body warm than with ThermoSoft's electric radiant floor warming. Radiant floor heat does not rise to the ceiling like conventional convection heat. ThermoSoft's in-floor warming is attracted to people and objects and is therefore concentrated from floor to head level. There's no better way to regain real estate lost to global cooling that with a ThermoSoft floor warming counter-offensive. ThermoSoft's electric floor heating systems are easily deployed in individual rooms as well as throughout the whole home or office, in remodels as well as new construction.
Speaking about ThermoSoft's energy efficient electric radiant floor warming systems coupled with the latest energy-saving programmable floor thermostats, ThermoSoft's President and CEO, Eric Kochman stated, "Together we can [make the world warmer]. We are definitely in the right place at the right time to solve global cooling. ThermoSoft's mission is to warm the world through education, dedication and floor heat installation."
Freehold Township, in New Jersey was first formed in 1693. One of the largest battles of the Revolutionary War, involving over 25,000 soldiers, was fought in Freehold. This battle is known as the Battle of Monmouth, where Molly Pitcher became famous for fighting in the stead of her wounded husband, as she manned the cannons. There is a different type of war brewing now, and it is in the construction arena. As contractors fight to "re-invent" themselves and to add value to their craft, underfloor heating is one of the weapons of the war.
"Today, contractors fight an uphill battle for the consumer's dollars and electric radiant floor heating should be a part of every professional's arsenal to separate themselves from their competition," said Steve Kaempf, Vice President of Sales for Thermosoft International. "Warm floors, and the comfort and energy savings they provide, is a strong draw to why people should want to do business with a contractor. Brian Shirley Electrical is a Freehold contractor that has taken the added step of becoming proficient in electric radiant floor heating, and boy has it paid off for them."
Underfloor heating is typically less than 10% of a construction project's budget, however, it is the "gift that keeps on giving", providing warmth, comfort and the 'wow' factor for years and years to come. "How long does it last?" you might ask? "It lasts as long as the wires in your walls," replies Steve. "Most of our underfloor heating products come with a lifetime warranty, so the floors will still be pushing up heat when most of our clients will be pushing up daisies!"
Tulsa, Oklahoma is the 46th largest city in the United States and was once known as the "Oil Capital of The World", so how ironic is it that electric floor heating is becoming more and more popular in this Midwest town. ABC Home Remodeling decided to use our Thermotile floor heating system in their latest project in Tulsa. With Thermosoft – professionals find a one stop shop for their floor heat needs. "Our clients are able to order their electric floor heat, insulation, thermostat and all installation tools," said Steve Kaempf, Vice President of Sales for Thermosoft International. Tulsa is located in "Tornado Alley", and our floor heating systems have hit the area like a cyclone, creating a "good noise".
Steve says, "Any contractor that decides to add our electric floor heating to their quotation process give themselves a competitive edge in the field. Our product typically ships the same day, and our customer service representatives are available until 10:00 p.m. to assist you with any projects. Tech support is also on stand by to support your efforts, and really make you look like a hero!" Tulsa also claims to be the birthplace of U.S. Route 66. "We feel that the road to success for remodelers today, is to create a distinction, and radiant floor heating provides a "custom touch" to your work. People are thrilled to step on a floor, whether it be wood or tile, that warms their feet." Electric radiant floor heating has found a home in Tulsa.
