IDEAL FOR ALL FLOOR TYPES

Introducing TruHeat’s revolutionary EZ-HEAT mat heating system, utilizing our ALL-NEW patented amorphous metal tape heating element. EZ-HEAT mats are not your typical in-floor heating mesh mats which other companies offer but are far more superior in many ways.

The real advantage of the EZ-HEAT mats versus conventional wire-based heating mats is the fact that our system can deliver warmth to floors much more rapidly and for a fraction of the energy cost. The secret of our EZ-HEAT mats lies in our unique amorphous metal tape heating technology which has significant advantages over any other type of in-floor heating systems:

How Does It Work?

The advantage of the EZ-HEAT mats compared to conventional wire-based heating mats is that our system covers a much larger surface area of the floor, and therefore can deliver the required heat at a much faster rate. EZ-HEAT mats cover up to 4 times more surface area of the floor compared to other heating systems, and due to this large heat transfer area, our heating system operates at lower temperatures of about 30°C/86°F (compared to the typical temperature range of more than 60°C/140°F at the core of a common heating wire). This still generates the required heat to the surrounding area with minimal energy consumption. 

Additionally, while wire-based systems need to be buried deep within a concrete layer to ensure safety and no damage to floors, the EZ-HEAT mats allow direct installation of ceramic tile, timber, parquet or carpet above the heating mats with no danger of damaging the color, texture or coating of these delicate floor coverings. What is even great is that floating floors such as laminate, LVT, engineered hardwood, or carpet can usually be installed directly on top without requiring a protective cement layer saving you on installation costs.

Features & Benefits

 

A SAFE SOURCE OF HEAT


Heating elements based on amorphous metal tape, operate at lower temperatures and are therefore more secure and less hazardous to the user. There is no dangerous and unpleasant burning of oxygen or dust, no open flames, no feeling of suffocation or bad odors while the heating element is working and full electrical safety controls are built into the system.




SUPERIOR HEATING PERFORMANCE


Due to the low mass of the heating system's amorphous heating element, it performs far better than regular heating elements. In fact, the amorphous metal tape will begin heating its surroundings faster than the traditional kind. This also means that TruHeat's technology is more energy-efficient than other heating systems, thus saving on electricity bills and offering a low maintenance-cost system.




LONG LIFE


TruHeat's technology has a major advantage in terms of life span due to the low temperature of the heating element.




ENERGY SAVINGS


Since the amorphous metal tape heats up 8 times faster than wires and the operating temperature of the system is lower as well, therefore much less energy is consumed by TruHeat's EZ-HEAT mats. Additionally, when comparing the EZ-HEAT in-floor heating mats to radiators or forced air systems, our system offers three primary areas of energy savings. Losses through the window are much lower. Losses through the ceiling are lower because the temperature at ceiling level is lower and losses through the wall and air changes are lower because room air temperatures are lower with the EZ-HEAT mat system, to provide the same comfort level.




SUITABLE FOR ALL LOCATIONS


TruHeat's EZ-HEAT mat system is applicable to every type of building, whether it is newly built, a renovation or a retrofit for both residential and commercial properties.




SUITABLE FOR ALL FLOOR COVERINGS


Due to the low working temperature of the EZ-HEAT mats' heating element, it can be embedded in self leveling cement or latex compound of at least ¼ inch (6mm) thickness, and directly on top of floating floors such as laminate, LVT, engineered wood or wall to wall carpet without the need to put a cement layer.




LARGE TRANSFER AREA


The tape's large transfer area means that the product reaches a specific power output level at a lower temperature.




LOWER INSULATION COST


The amorphous heating tape element may be packed in different types of polymer insulation, and contrary to wire elements, works at lower temperatures, thus requiring lower or less expensive insulation.




NEGLIGIBLE ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD


Measurements of the electromagnetic field strength generated by TruHeat's heating mats prove that it is negligible when compared to the strength of acceptable EMF levels. The EZ-HEAT mats have passed rigorous safety tests.




OTHER ADVANTAGES


The EZ-HEAT mat system has other clear advantages; being the most comfortable and natural form of heating; it is unobtrusive, safe and quiet; it is virtually maintenance free, it complements other energy-saving developments in heating – e.g. condensing boilers, solar panels, heat pumps and combined heat and power systems – and is simple and inexpensive to install.

Amorphous Metal Tape Advantage

Heating wires is an outdated technology when it comes to in-floor heating systems. The EZ-HEAT mats' amorphous metal tape makes for a far superior heating element due the science behind how the amorphous metal alloy tape is created. While traditional wire based systems use crystalline metals such as copper which has its faults, the homogeneous, non-boundary structure of the amorphous metallic alloy provides unique mechanical, anti-corrosion, and wear resistant properties to the heating element. Amorphous metal tape is a far more effective heating element than regular heating wires because it provides:

Under Laminate, Wood, LVT Floors

layers-defined-2.jpg

A popular use of the EZ-HEAT system is under laminate, hardwood, engineered wood, LVT or other floating floors as it fits directly underneath them without the need of a thinset layer. Because the EZ-HEAT mats are constructed of an ultra-thin amorphous metal tape – 25 microns – heat is not absorbed by the metal. It is therefore immediately transferred to the floor area and the tape temperature remains relatively low at around 28-30°C (82-86°F). This attribute is crucial under wood and carpet installations which can be easily damaged by higher temperatures.


Additionally, due to the low profile of the EZ-HEAT mats, raising the floor height is no issue at all as the heating element beds into the soft insulating underlayment when installing floating floors. The insulation provides thermal and acoustic support with impact noise reduction of up-to 21db. We recommend AMVIC Thermoquiet or a similar underlayment as an ideal insulating underlayment for the EZ-HEAT mats for floating floors.

Under Tile, Stone Floors

layers-defined-tiles.jpg

Tile underfloor heating is one of the easiest to install using TruHeat's EZ-HEAT mat system. The system is installed much like all other in-floor heating mats but the EZ-HEAT mats have the lowest profile compared to all other heated mats out there in the market. In fact, the thickness of the EZ-HEAT mats is only 2mm (>0.1 inch), meaning raising the floor height is never an issue. Our amorphous metal tape technology has a greater energy transfer rate compared to wire-based systems enabling it to heat the room to the desired temperature more efficiently as well.

Grounding Net For Additional Safety

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.

EZ-HEAT CLASSIC - 14 Watts/Sqft

**FOR OLDER HOMES WITH HIGH HEAT LOSS**

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.
