EZ-HEAT Mats

ALL-NEW Amorphous Metal Technology

TruHeat's all new EZ-HEAT floor heating mat system is based on our unique amorphous metal tape technology. Due to our unique heating element, our heating mats start delivering heat faster than all other heating systems in the marketing. With the EZ-HEAT mats, electric heating can be achieved very effectively and efficiently, with savings of up to 40% compared to traditional (electrical) and hydronic heating systems.

EZ-HEAT mats are perfect for regular shaped rooms. Installation is also a breeze since all you have to do is select the right sizes of mats and make one simple connection to the thermostat and it is done! Learn more about what makes TruHeat's EZ-HEAT mats the perfect choice for your heated floors.

Features & Benefits

ULTRA LOW PROFILE

EZ-HEAT floor heating mats are a mere 2mm (>0.1 inch) in thickness. This means raising the floor height is never an issue when laying our heating mats under the flooring of your choice.

BETTER HEAT DISTRIBUTION & LESS ENERGY CONSUMPTION

The amorphous heat tape runs on the EZ-HEAT mats are much closely packed together compared to cable based systems which allow the EZ-HEAT mats to deliver a much more even heat distribution. Typically the cable based systems have a gap of 3 inches between the cable runs while the EZ-HEAT mats only have a gap of 1.5 inches between the heat tape runs. This means you get 2 times more heating element with our system.

MINIMUM ENERGY CONSUMPTION

Since the EZ-HEAT mats cover a larger surface area of the floor, therefore they do not operate at such high temperatures. In fact, the operating temperature of the heat mats is 30°C/86°F which ensures minimal energy consumption while still delivering the desired heat. In addition, our revolutionary heat mats operate by only consuming 7 W/SqFt where as the traditional cable based systems consume 10-15 W/SqFt. Lastly, EZ-HEAT mats will also save you on running costs by delivering heat in just 15 minutes while the competitive heating systems can take up to 1 hour to start working. The minimal energy consumption combined with a rapid heat up time translates into tremendous energy savings.

INSTANT HEAT TRANSFER

The fact, that the heating tape is so thin also means that the generated heat can easily be sent forth to the surrounding area, while in case of a traditional cables, the heat is partly ‘stuck’ within the heating element itself and leading to a high temperature gradient as shown in the image below.

FASTER & EASIER INSTALLATION

While cable based systems need to be buried deep into a cement layer to ensure they are safe for the user and the flooring, the EZ-HEAT mats are perfectly safe to be installed directly under all floor types. Often times, under floating floors such as laminate, LVT, engineered hardwood, the EZ-HEAT system can be installed without the need for a cement layer saving you on installation costs. Installation is also quite simple. Simply lay the heating mats on the sub-floor, connect the electrical cables and you are ready to cover the floor with any type of covering.

Technology

What is an amorphous material?

Amorphous material is a solid with internal structure of liquid. Contrary to an amorphous composition, a crystalline solid possesses a crystalline lattice, i.e. periodical structure forming a lattice in space. The structure of the liquid differs from that of the crystalline solid by absence of the periodical order. The atoms of the liquid are chaotically distributed in space. Cooling of liquid results in arising the crystalline structure at some specific temperature (crystallization temperature). However if the cooling is very rapid then the liquid solidifies without forming the crystalline lattice. This is true for multi-component alloys, which include two kinds of atoms (binary alloy) or more.

What is amorphous metallic alloy ribbon?

Amorphous metallic alloys, which are often referred to as metallic glasses, are relatively new materials, mainly known in the form of thin ribbons. They are pre-pared from molten alloys by rapid quenching technique. In this technique the melt of a metallic alloy is poured onto rapidly rotating copper drum. Due to low thickness of the ribbon (20 to 30 micron) it is cooled at a very high rate (about million degrees per second). It prevents the crystalline structure from growing during solidification. During such a short time the crystalline structure has no chance to arise. Instead the amorphous solid in the form of a very thin ribbon like tape (width varies from few millimeters to 20 cm) is prepared.

What are the specific features of the amorphous tape?

The leading feature of these materials is the absence of the crystalline structure. The crystalline solids are typically built from small crystallites with grain boundaries between them causing most of the material faults. Amorphous metallic alloys have homogeneous structure providing high physical, mechanical, anti-corrosion, wear resistant and magnetic properties making them superior in many aspects with respect to crystalline metals.

Why TruHeat's amorphous metallic tape is an excellent heating element for moderate temperature heaters?

Due to the absence of the crystalline order the amorphous ribbons possess elevated specific electrical resistance compared with crystalline solids of the same composition. Together with the physical form of the ribbon, which provides low mass-to-specific surface area ratio, it makes the ribbon a very attractive candidate as a heating element. Why? The explanation is very simple: energy transfer from any heating element is proportional to its surface area and temperature difference between the heater and environment. The higher the surface area the lower the temperature difference needed to transfer the energy from the heater to the environment. Since the surface area of the ribbon is pretty high (compare it with the surface area of a conventional wire used in many heaters) it is able to efficiently transfer the heat to the environment without arriving to high temperatures. If we are speaking about, for example, domestic heating then lower temperature provides healthier environment and higher safety.

Why TruHeat's heating elements?

All the producers of amorphous ribbons are targeting electromagnetic applications using the ribbon as soft magnetic materials for various electronic components. TruHeat is the only company, which developed special ribbons for heating applications. The TruHeat amorphous ribbons are more reliable, reveal higher electrical and possess a higher corrosion resistance. Their main physical and geometrical characteristics are:

  • Thickness: 20-30 micron

  • Width: 2-100 mm

  • Corrosion resistance: High

  • Ductility and flexibility: High

  • Heat transfer area: High

  • Warm-up time to steady state: Low

Conclusion:

  1. The large heat transfer area of the amorphous heat tape allows achieving the same heating power at a lower temperature of the heating element, thus providing improved safety.

  2. The heat efficiency of the tape is significantly superior over the wire.

  3. The same heat transfer power can be achieved at lower temperature in the tape's case.

  4. Due to lower operating temperature the tape's heating element can be packed in a flexible polymer insulation which is impossible with the wire element.

Insulating Underlay Recommendation

During dry installations, an insulating underlayment of 3-4 mm is required so the mats get embedded into the underlayment allowing the finished flooring to go on top flush.

Grounding Net For Wet Locations

ez heat mats

The TruHeat grounding nets are designed to be installed together with the EZ-HEAT mats in rooms with high humidity (high humidity rooms include saunas, bathrooms, kitchen areas and utility rooms within 50 cm of sinks or any metal kitchen equipment).

While the EZ-HEAT mats are double insulated to provide exceptional safety to the user, we still recommend installing the grounding nets to increase the safety of the underfloor heating system and reduce the risk of electric shock. These grounding nets have a non-heated current lead (electrical wire) that is connected to the ground connection.

The system does not need to run 24 hours a day in order to keep the floor/room warm. Typically, it is ideal to have a running time of about 8 hours a day for the system. With TruHeat system's programmable thermostat the control is always in your hands on how long to keep the system on for.
