Warmzone's electric radiant heating options provide a clean way to heat homes. And because electric radiant heat systems have no moving parts, they are maintenance free, adding convenience and comfort for radiant heat owners. Radiant floor heating systems also offer the most efficient way to heat your home. With radiant floor heating systems, each room (or zone) is controlled with its own controller, so you can heat only those rooms that you want to warm. No heat is wasted through closed, yet "leaky" vents, and nearly all the heat from the radiant heating element is directed upwards, eliminating wasted energy.

Electric floor heating systems typically require less operating time to maintain the desired warmth compared to forced air systems and other traditional methods of heating, which helps to keep operational costs to a minimum. High efficiency boilers (for hydronic heated floors) or electric under floor heating systems make radiant heat a smart choice for heating your home. Coupled with a well insulated home these systems quickly warm specific areas of your home comfortably and efficiently. With the programmable thermostat, the system can be programmed to operate precisely at the times you need, and then shut off according to your daily schedule.

Safe and efficient, electric under floor heating systems are more practical than hydronic systems for heating smaller and custom shaped areas, and require less upfront costs.
