Heating technology has come a long way

Heating technology has come a long way

Conductive polymer materials have proven their efficiency in today’s heating technology marketplace, as is evident with its sharp rise in its’ demand.

Unlike traditional surface heaters with resistance wires that can break and cause heater failure, conductive polymer materials have a geometric flexibility and structural integrity that makes it the most versatile surface-heating product available. 

STEP Warmfloor has all the properties and applications of existing conductive polymer materials, and more.  Unique to STEP Warmfloor is its’ superior and unique technology advantage that enables it to be self-regulating.  Due to the self-regulating properties of the STEP elements, the whole surface of the polymer material acts as a sensor.

STEP Warmfloor is very energy efficient because the elements are flat and spread out, evenly distributing the heat on a larger surface.  The system heats by continuously modulating the temperature which is more efficient than an on/off system. 

The elements draw only the energy required to maintain the ideal temperature and evenly distribute heat over the entire floor surface eliminating drafts.  Without a furnace blower or electric baseboards announcing their noisy efforts to heat a home, radiant floor heating is completely silent.    

The STEP elements come in different conductivities and mat sizes to fit each specific application in new and existing home or business applications.
