Speedheat® is 21st century technology. It was designed to introduce the world to a new and innovative way to heat your home on demand! Homes in America have most always used the traditional method of heating, a central system located in an attic or basement where forced air is directed through ducts located in the wall or ceiling. Those locations are less than ideal because, of two simple laws of physics, hot air rises and cool air falls!

The heat is distributed evenly throughout your floor giving you a degree of comfort you have never experienced before. Speedheat delivers true comfort from the ground up.

You can retrofit Speedheat® to compliment and enhance your current central heating system. You don’t have to wait to refurbish or build a new home; you can move to Speedheat right now!
Will Speedheat® for area rugs heat my entire room?
It depends on how many you use, but there are many factors to take into consideration when trying to heat an entire space. This application is for “Zone Heating” only, or heating a defined area in which you spend a significant amount of time. If you have more than one rug, by all means, purchase more than one heater. You will feel the difference right away. Is Speedheat® safe?
Speedheat® is 100% safe and has undergone rigorous testing, including having been completely submerged in water. Every heater comes complete with a GFCI plug and the most advanced ground screening system available anywhere. In the case of an electrical fault or damage to the heater, Speedheat® shuts down immediately for the ultimate in safety. Speedheat® is without a doubt the safest system in the world. After all, we are the inventors, and nobody holds safety dearer than do we.
Can Speedheat® go under furniture?
Yes and no. Any piece of furniture that rests has low or zero ground clearance (e.g. a futon or mattress without a stand) will act as an insulator, which could conceivably cause overheating. Any piece of furniture that has legs can be placed on a heater without concern about damaging the heater or the furniture. However, for the maximum comfort benefit, you will prefer that the heater is largely uncovered.
Do I need padding for my area rug?
Yes. It can be purchased at any home center and the type you will need is dependent on your flooring surface. Any non-slip area rug padding will suffice.
Can an area rug be too thin or too thick?
The thinner the better, but any rug beyond ¾ of an inch in thickness can impede the performance of the heater. It will still function well but will just take longer for the heat to work its way through the fibers.
