Don’t get cold feet with QuickHeat

QuickHeat is the smart and easy way to enjoy underfloor heating. Nothing to cast in concrete, minimum bother – you can even forget about the electrician.

In addition to warmth, QuickHeat also provides walking comfort. By supplementing your primary heating system with QuickHeat, you can also usually lower the temperature 2 – 3 degrees compared to using radiators. With a maximum effect of 60 W / m² QuickHeat is not intended to replace your primary heating system, but to provide comfortable, warm floors throughout the entire room.

How to install QuickHeat?

This is what you need for getting started:

  • Vapour barrier (PE film)
  • QuickHeat insulation plates
  • QuickHeat foil
  • Controller kit
  • Extension cables
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Box cutter

Once you’ve removed the old flooring and exposed the subfloor, simply cover the entire floor with vapour barrier (PE film). Next, cover the floor with the QuickHeat insulation plates and tape them together. Roll out the QuickHeat foils with their built-in heat cables and connect the connectors. Install the controller on the wall and connect with the QuickHeat foils. To finish, cover with vapour barrier (PE film) and check if the floor sensor is warming up the foils. Now you are ready to install your floor. QuickHeat works with all types of floating floor coverings such as wood and laminate.

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

1. Materials

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
    • 50 plates (1,2m x 0,5m)
  • Tape
  • 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.
