Heating Your Floor With Schluter®-DITRA-HEAT
There are certain luxuries that really take the comfort of your home to the next level, and heated floors are definitely one of them. Bare feet on cold tile is never a comfortable experience, especially during the winter months.
Heated floors are especially beneficial for those who always seem to have cold feet, and need to constantly wear socks or slippers around the house, even during the summer. Many people associate heated floors with the kitchen or bathroom, but the truth is that they can be installed anywhere in your home. Schluter®-DITRA-HEAT is one of the top brands when it comes to heated floors — let’s find out why.
DITRA-HEAT products are designed for ultimate durability. They are waterproof, protecting the heated elements from moisture. Plus, there is space left on the underside of the product to allow any excess moisture or vapor to escape, which prevents any damage to the tile above it. One of the most common problems with heated floors is the tile surface cracking or delaminating. DITRA-HEAT prevents this through uncoupling, which means that the substrate and the tile are separated, allowing them to move independently and avoiding strain on the surface of the tile. All of these elements ensure that once your heated floor is installed, it will last for years and remain in good condition.
Schluter®-DITRA-HEAT combines loose heat cables with mat systems, meaning that they are easy to install, and you can customize where you want to heat without compromising the level of the floor. So if you only want heated floors in a particular section of a room — no problem! Most people automatically picture heated floors with a tile cover, but DITRA-HEAT can actually be used with many different flooring materials, including laminate, vinyl, stone plastic composite, and engineered wood.
One of the best features of Schluter®-DITRA-HEAT heated floors is that it is easier than ever to control their temperature. The DITRA-HEAT-E-Wifi Thermostat can be programmed with wifi connectivity, meaning that you can change the temperature of your floors from just about anywhere. Want your kitchen floor to be warmed up by the time you get down the stairs in the morning? You can set the temperature before you even roll out of bed. Forgot to turn off the heated floor before you left the house? No problem — just pull out your phone at work or in the car and adjust your smart thermostat.
Schluter®-DITRA-HEAT has some top quality heated floor products. They are designed with precision so that they last for years without causing any damage to your floors, and they’re completely customizable. The smart thermostats make adjusting the temperature of your floors incredibly easy, and you’ll never have to worry about forgetting to turn them off. So, why suffer from cold feet throughout the winter? Get the heated floors you’ve always dreamed of.
