Increase the Value of Your Home with Heated Floors

2015-12-04

Home for sale - sold!

Are you putting your home on the market? When selling a home, making smart improvements can increase its value and catch a buyer's attention. Along with charming curb appeal and up-to-date kitchens, heated floors have become a hot commodity that buyers are looking for. In the past, heated floors were seen as a luxury, but today they are becoming more and more common in houses, condos and townhouses across the United States and Canada. So, if you're looking for an affordable upgrade that will appeal to a wide range of buyers, heated floors is the perfect solution.

In fact, according to recent reports, since 2004, North America has seen a substantial increase in the amount of condo units being built with electrical radiant heating as a standard feature. This growth is attributed to the fact that heated floors have transitioned from a luxury amenity to an efficient heating solution for all types of homes. Now radiant floor heating is one of the biggest selling points for homes across the U.S. and Canada.

Radiant floor heating is appealing to house hunters for a number of reasons. One of the major reasons is comfort. Unlike baseboard and forced air heating systems, heated floors radiate heat from the ground up. Therefore, the heat is evenly distributed to the objects and people in the room and doesn’t just rise up to the ceiling. Radiant floor heating's ability to evenly distribute heat provides a comfortable environment, as well as significant energy savings.

Households with radiant floor heating feel more comfortable with their thermostat set at lower levels, allowing them to save energy and money.

Additionally, heated floors operate silently and out of sight. They don't make noise like forced air systems do, and they don’t involve unsightly vents, air ducts or furnaces. Heated floors don't impact a homeowner's furniture layout or design scheme in any way.

With the many benefits heated floors offer, it's no wonder they are so appealing to homebuyers. So, if you want your home to sell for top dollar, ask your realtor how installing radiant floor heating can help. When you're ready to make the switch to radiant floor heating, give us a call! At ThermoSoft, we offer the industry's leading radiant flooring heating products for all types of floors. Visit us online at ThermoSoft.com to learn more. 800.308.8057.

Say Good-bye to Cold Floors This Winter with Heated Floors

2015-12-04

Wool-slippered feet

The official start of winter is just a few weeks away, and though this winter is expected to be milder than the last, many areas across the country can still expect to experience frigid and snowy weather. If you're tired of dreading getting out of bed on a cold winter morning, then it's time to make the switch to heated floors. With a heated floor you can improve the comfort and energy efficiency of your home and say good-bye to cold floors for good.

Just imagine waking up in the morning and placing your bare feet on a toasty heated floor. Getting out of bed for work in the morning will no longer be a struggle. With a heated floor even your cat or dog will want to curl up on the tile or hardwood floor instead than snuggling on the couch.

What makes heated floors so great? They use radiant heat to directly heat the objects and people in a room, instead of just warming the air. Radiant heating systems allow you to feel comfortable at a lower air temperature than electric baseboards and forced-air systems, and as a result, reduce your monthly energy bill.

At ThermoSoft, we offer radiant floor heating systems for all types of floors, including laminate, wood, wall-to-wall carpet, carpet tile, vinyl tile, stone tile and ceramic tile. Our underfloor heating products are incredibly simple to install and minimize raising your floor. Here are the two industry-leading products we offer:

ThermoFloor

ThermoFloor is the world's only 3-in-1 heated flooring system (thermal insulation, sound protection and radiant heating) for wood, laminate, carpet and vinyl floors. ThermoFloor is engineered with ThermoSoft's patented FiberThermics to prevent overheating and protect against moisture and damage. This heated floor system is also made with Insulayment, a sound and temperature heating pad that provides optimal insulation while suppressing noise and heating your floor.

ThermoTile

ThermoTile is ThermoSoft's heated floor system for stone and ceramic tile floors. Like ThermoFloor, it is made with FiberThermics to safeguard your heated floor from overheating and damage. It also has four layers of insulation to protect against moisture and mechanical damage.
