1. Quick, comfortable warmth
The QuickHeat system consists of several layers: a heating foil producing the heat, insulation plates to help radiating the heat upwards and two dampproof separation layers (=vapour barrier) that help blocking any damp that would rise from the subfloor.
2. Built-in safety feature
QuickHeat has a built-in electrical safety feature (RCD residual current device) that automatically disconnects power if a failure should occur. Naturally, the system is certified for do-it-yourself installation and fulfils international standards for removable floors.
3. Wireless thermostat in every room
With QuickHeat you can easily fine-tune the temperature of each room. Once the foils have been rolled out, simply connect the controller and set the wireless thermostat to the desired temperature. The flexible timer allows you to have separate floor heating setting for weekdays and weekends. Four individual time zones support your daily mode (morning, day, evening and night) and each period can be set with a unique temperature.
Calculation of materials and required electrical power
Before you install the QuickHeat system, we advise to carefully plan the layout pattern of the installation. Making a sketch of the room where you will position the system will provide a good overview to know which sizes of heating foils and other materials to use.
Checklist for a room of 30m² (6mx5m)
- 1 Controller kit
- 1 QuickHeat extension cable (1m or 3m)
- 2x PE vapour barriers
- 2 rolls 12,5m x 2,7m = 33,75m²
- Insulation plates
- QuickHeat foils
- 5 heating foils (5m) of 1,2m width; or
- 6 heating foils (5m) of 1m width; or
- 10 heating foils (5m) of 0,6m width
Before installing the QuickHeat system, we strongly recommend you to read the more detailed information about the selection and calculation of materials here. This will help you create a similar checklist to the example above for the dimensions of your room.
2. Required electrical power
Every fuse in the mains supply distribution board has its protective value imprinted in Ampere (e.g. 10, 13 or 16 A). When calculating the output available for the QuickHeat system, you should take all your electrical appliances on this fuse into consideration. Before installing the QuickHeat system, we strongly recommend you to read the more detailed information about the calculation of the required electrical power here.
