RugBuddy™ is Instant Heated Floors


RugBuddy™ 1000 Portable Floor Heater

  • 7.75' x 10.5' under Area Rug Heater Panel
  • Model RB1000
RugBuddy 470

Perfect for your 8' x 11' rug in your family room, play rooms, bedrooms, that cold room over your garage, basements, and more!

Great for yoga and stretching exercises, too!

The 8' electric cord is located in the corner of the heating panel, so it is easily hidden.  There is the GFCI plug with "on" and "off" buttons at the end, you can rest assured that there is no risk of fire or electric shock.

Installation is simple.  Simply lay down your non-slip rug pad (Speedheat offers these for your convenience, but you will do just as well with a rug pad from your local hardware or carpeting store.  Next, you simply tape down the corners and a couple of areas of the sides of the panel to the rug pad.  Then, all you have to do is lay down your area rug, plug it in, and turn it on!

If you decide at a later date that you would like to permanently install your RugBuddy under wall-to-wall carpeting, simply follow the CarpetMate installation instructions with your RugBuddy panel, and you can have a permanent heating solution with what is now, your CarpetMate under carpet heating system!

We do offer the PlugBuddy plug-in thermostat, but most of our customers are content with simply plugging it in and turning it on and off, themselves, or using a grounded timer that is easily found at your local hardware store.
