Features design, installation film warm floor and its operating principle exclude the presence in the room of the electromagnetic field that is present in any type of cable system.When connecting the tape emits long infrared rays and anions - negatively charged ions.

heat that is generated by an infrared heater, a beneficial effect on human health and the sensations compared with sunlight.To direct the flow of heat in heating ceiling downstairs neighbor, and floor heating in their housing, made use of heat-reflective substrate.The energy released by infrared floors, not warm the surrounding air and objects.

advantages of infrared film ↑

infrared heater promptly responds to changes in the environment, so the room gets warm faster.Installing underfloor heating film involves heating off when the room warmer.

Advantages of floor heating
Advantages of floor heating: the scheme compared to the work of central heating

necessary to enumerate the main advantages of such a film:

  • uniform heating of the room;
  • energy savings;
  • increase the efficiency of energy carrier compared to the convective type of heating;
  • excluded cooling and overheating of the room, as well as the freezing of the system;
  • reduction dusty;
  • complete independence from central heating schedule;
  • invisibility in the interior;
  • excluded the costs of maintenance;
  • no feeling of stuffiness;
  • maintaining natural moisture;
  • quiet operation;
  • easy assembly and disassembly.

Using film heating systems ↑

Underfloor heating systems are used by setting a ceiling and floor covering, as well as used in wall panels and any curved surfaces without the fear of deformation.However, the film warm floor nanotermal is not designed for installation outdoors without some protection.

The use of floor heating for housing
application of floor heating in the accommodation is heated most necessary to create a comfortable temperature zone

underfloor heating system is used for heating different purposes.If necessary, an infrared film can be used as a temporary heating or additional option.In addition, the rational use of infra-red floors in buildings in which there is simply no stationary heating.Warm floor it is advisable to install as an emergency source of heat.

Infrared film floor heating for heating hospitals, schools, kindergartens, hotels and other buildings mass destination.Such systems can be used in agriculture production areas and nature in general, anywhere.

In addition, landlords and entrepreneurs themselves are looking for new ways to use the film - for example, for heating all sorts of equipment and warm reservoirs.But the most demanded an infrared heater to heat apartments, private homes and country.

Compatible with carpets ↑

infrared heater is compatible with all types of flooring.Film heating system is suitable for installation under a light cover - and laminate flooring, carpet and linoleum.Connecting the film heaters in this case does not require special skills and is not intended to sophisticated technological solutions.

At the same time, if a person has sufficient experience in the construction and installation works of film floor heating can be installed safely under all kinds of stone, ceramic and composite materials.Reliability and economic efficiency of the heating exceeds by many parameters existing in the market of traditional systems of water and underfloor heating cable.

film thickness of only 0.4 millimeters, which in turn allows you to install the heater directly under the floor, without fear for cover.Infrared system is characterized by a low heating temperature, however, the maximum heat transfer is achieved.

floor heating system, which is made on the basis of the resistive film above 45 degrees Celsius is not heated.It has beneficial effects on the human body, and flooring.In addition, any interior design can be realized without giving up the comfort of underfloor heating.

infrared device warm floor ↑

infrared film can be set independently.Installation of Infrared floor heating is not so complicated, it is necessary only to study in detail the instructions and carry out the calculations required amount of material.The system can not be laid over the whole area, and 70-80% of the required heating area, without compromising the quality of heating.

Preparing for installation of the film ↑

If you plan coating of carpet or linoleum, you can use any type of insulation, the thickness of the sheet only needs to reach 3 - 5 millimeters.If the floor tiles will be laid, it is preferable to use technical insulation of tubes, whose thickness is 2 mm.

Development of the scheme in the preparatory phase
Preparing to film sex device includes a mandatory step - development schemes

When installing a warm floor is a film in advance to determine the location of the thermostat and make installation scheme to decompose on the floor infrared film correctly.The material is laid on open areas of the floor, where there will be located furniture.

installation process infrared film ↑

How to set the film warm floor with their hands?On the prepared surface of the floor cleared to go to insulation material.The film can be cut into strips of the desired size at special markup lines thereon.After that, the film should be spread out on the floor, respectively charting mounting pins to the wall where the thermostat will be set, and copper strip down.

Installation without crossing wires
Arrangement without crossing wires

Then the film is connected to the wiring, installing terminals at the edges of the copper strips, and connect them to the contact wire.All the places where the wire is connected to the terminals, and the incision infrared film is recommended to be sure to isolate using bitumen insulation.

Connecting temperature sensor and teploregulyatora ↑

floor sensor is connected to the lower side of the film and also certainly isolated.When laying underfloor heating film is finished, all the wires and contacts are connected, it is necessary to establish teploregulyator, isolating contacts and connect the device to the mains.

Connection thermostat - completion

For additional protection on top of underfloor heating is necessary to lay a polyethylene film.The system of film genders many hidden contacts, unlike cable floor, so it is necessary to test a new infrared floor.The surface should be heated uniformly without sincere and warm places connecting contacts.

And only after that you can start laying the flooring finish.If you want to lay tiles, the after work should be allowed to dry out the screed below it for 20 days, then you can use the system of floor heating.
