The Simple and Effective Way to Stay Warm in 2024

Nov 26, 2021

As the snow starts to fall and we bitterly must leave our cozy, warm beds in the morning, we can’t help but think how Schluter’s DITRA-HEAT and DITRA-HEAT-DUO would make it so much easier to start the day.

Schluter has made it so simple and efficient to now warm up your tile floor, which as you know is a great conductor of heat. You can literally take the coiled wire and run it through your bathroom, shower, basement, laundry room, etc. exactly where you want it heated. There is no longer a need to put down a floor mat underneath and then pour self-leveler over top as it’s all in one, easy-to-use system that ensures a smooth transition between floors with no tripping hazard.

DITRA-HEAT integrates customizable, comfortable electric floor warming with the functions associated with DITRA: uncoupling, waterproofing, vapor management, and support to ensure a long-lasting installation.

DITRA-HEAT-DUO is your solution for installing heated floors on top of concrete. It is an uncoupling and waterproofing membrane with an integrated bonding fleece that provides sound control and a thermal break, making it a condo developers dream. The thermal break reduces the amount of energy needed and limits the heat loss to the substrate for up to 70% faster heat-up times over concrete during temperature increase demands,

And with the new sleek looking thermostat you can program the heat to generate as you please! Like, setting it up to start heating up your floors an hour before you usually wake up in the morning to ensure you stay warm while hopping in the shower or making your morning coffee. Not to mention, this feature allows you not to waste any energy when you don’t want your floors heated.
