From a structural standpoint, Warmboard is ideal. In new construction, Warmboard-S installs directly over slab or joist, while in remodels, Warmboard-R typically installs over existing subfloor, slab or in the walls or ceiling. The tubing pattern is automatically created, and the plans we provide show you exactly how everything goes together, from panel and tubing layouts to manifold locations. The 12 inch tubing spacing in our radiant panels means fewer components and a less complex control system.
While design and installation benefits reward architects and builders, homeowners have the most to gain.
Warmboard's superior conductivity combined with low water temperatures means even floor temperatures; and that means more flooring options. With Warmboard - anything is possible, from thick wool carpets to ornate tile and marble to wide-plank hardwood. In fact many hardwood companies recommend only Warmboard as their preferred radiant product because there’s no concern about damaging their flooring products.
If you are considering ornate hardwood detailings like herringbone or chevron patterns, only Warmboard provides the ideal installation surface. Many flooring professionals refuse to install such floors over other radiant systems. Even more standard hardwood installs are generally more costly with other systems.
Eliminate unsightly registers and radiant wall heaters for greater interior design options. Use zoning to customize the temperature in any area. Want your bedroom a bit cooler than your bathroom, or one temperature for living room and another for the guest room? No problem. Optimize the temperature throughout to create the ultimate dream home.
We built a log home with cathedral ceilings and have always felt like the lower the heat to the floor, the better. With Warmboard, it can be less than 30 degrees outside and my living room stays comfortable at 70-71 degrees. There’s no noise, no air blowing around, and as soon as you walk inside you’re warm. Our builder recently brought two couples looking to build log homes over to take a look. They are ready to order Warmboard for their log homes.
