Revolutionary TEC™ In-Floor Heat Brings Warmth and Comfort to Homes

Easily Customizable Spa-Inspired Heated Flooring

Publish Date: Wednesday, March 23, 2016
The National Kitchen & Bath Association’s 2016 Design Trends Report predicts that “transitional” aesthetics will dominate residential bathrooms this year. The new TEC™ In-Floor Heat embodies this trend, combining warmth and comfort with sophisticated technology for subtly luxurious spaces. Unlike other floor warming systems available, revolutionary TEC™ In-Floor Heat is customizable on-site to fit any space, eliminating down time for special ordering.
 
TEC™ In-Floor Heat features infrared heat technology that provides uniform warmth underneath tile and stone floors. Because it is embedded in mortar under the floor’s surface, it is placed before tile or stone installation begins. At just 1/64” thin, TEC™ In-Floor Heat is thinner than alternatives on the market and will not change the floor’s height. Its slim size means smoother transitions between rooms and less likelihood of the floor interfering with existing fixtures.
 
The floor’s temperature is controlled by a TEC™ Touch-Screen Thermostat or TEC™ Programmable Thermostat. 
 
Not only does TEC™ In-Floor Heat create optimal comfort, it’s built for optimal safety. TEC™ In-Floor Heat meets the highest UL Safety Standards and conforms to International Electromagnetic Field Safety Standard IEC / EN 62233, so homeowners can have peace of mind knowing their families are protected. 
 
TEC™ In-Floor Heat is designed for efficient installations. A general contractor or tile installer can purchase it from a distributor and then customize it to a particular room on site. It requires no special ordering and expedites installations. Contractors should use TEC® tools and a TEC® polymer modified mortar, like TEC® Super Flex™, to install the product. Then, tile or stone can be installed directly on top of the heat mat. A licensed electrician must hook up and connect the thermostat to the in-floor heating system.
 
“The TEC™ In-Floor Heat customizable mat is the easiest and quickest heat system I’ve ever seen,” said JJ Sabenorio of 1DayRemodeling in Castro Valley, CA. 
 
When installed with TEC® HydraFlex™ Waterproofing and Crack Isolation Membrane, Super Flex™ Mortar and TEC® grout, TEC™ In-Floor Heat has a limited lifetime warranty*. For more information, visit tecspecialty.com.
