Speedheat® is Floor Heating


Basement Heating Systems

Energy Efficient, Easy to install, Safe, Silent Electric Radiant Floor Heating Systems for Difficult to Heat Basements

Basements are notoriously difficult to heat, but Speedheat® offers easy-to-install, safe, silent, energy efficient solutions for your basement without having to break your slab or your bank!

One of the many dilemmas in homes both new and old, is the cold basement.

You spend all of that time, money, and energy to finish your basement into an office, playroom, recreation room, workout room, extra bedrooms, home theater, and more... only to find that you cannot keep these rooms warm, so no one wants to be down there!

There are many good reasons, too, but a Speedheat Floor Heating system is the perfect solution for all of them!

    Reason #1:  Hot Air Rises

  • Traditional heating systems cannot control the basement and the main living levels.
  • The hot air rises from the basement, leaving the basement cold and the main living levels too hot. It is a constant battle.
  • Reason #2: Basement floors are usually on concrete slabs, which are always cold!

  • Traditional systems are unable to warm the floors, which radiate cold through your body, wasting energy, resulting in high operation costs with little to no comfort benefit.
    • Heating directly under your feet with a Speedheat® Floor Heating system stops the chill from the cold floors while warmth radiates through your body from toes to head.

    Reason #3: Flooding Damage & Safety Concerns

  • To further complicate things, basements are notorious for flooding, which will destroy most heating systems and is also dangerous!
  • The GFCI-protected, waterproof Speedheat® Floor Heating systems are tested 100% safe, are not damaged by flooding, and are 100% safe in water!

Choose whatever floor covering you like... carpet, laminate, tile, linoleum, vinyl, and even under nailed down hardwood if you like... and of course, there is the RugBuddy™ if you are looking for a portable floor heater!

The CarpetMate™ 940 is the perfect size for most basement areas with two panels equaling 8' x 11' or 16' x 5.5' and priced at an affordable $598.00. These under carpet heating panels can be used under new carpeting or retrofitted!

What are the most common problems with heating a basement?

  • There is no existing ductwork
  • The current ductwork and/or heating system does not distribute enough heat to the basement.
  • The thermostat is located on a different floor, and the basement is always much colder than the rest of the home.
  • Hot air rises, and therefore all of the heat in the lowest levels of the home, goes right back upstairs. This makes the upstairs too hot, and the basement too cold!

What are your options?

Speedheat Basement Heating

  • You could use an energy-hogging, inefficient, and possibly dangerous space heater.
  • or install another central heating system and ductwork in your basement with its own controls.
  • decide not to use your basement area for anything other than storing things you bought on eBay and your lovely spider friends.
  • or you could wear a snowsuit when you are using your basement...
