Leading Australian tiles retailer Beaumont Tiles offers a unique solution to keep home environments warm and toasty this winter.
A proven warming mechanism for bathrooms and living areas during winter, under-tile heating does more for the home and family than simply warming the feet. Under-tile heating keeps a tiled room warmer for longer than other heating solutions, and is considered a budget-friendly option with running costs about a quarter of a heat lamp over a year.
Beaumont Tiles Communications & Design Specialist, Christie Wood explains that under-tile heating warms the air by convection and creates a drier environment by radiating heat to all solid objects. This ensures the room stays warm long after the system is turned off unlike regular heaters where the heat dissipates quickly.
Under-tile heating systems offer several advantages including safety, noiseless operation, concealed installation, energy efficiency and simple programming. Since there are no exposed heaters, the system remains child-safe. By preventing mould build-up, the system also eliminates allergies in the home environment. Under-tile heating does not require any wall space or roof cavity for installation, minimising the impact on room design. A touchscreen wall thermostat makes it simple to use and enables easy programming. Each installation is specifically configured for a particular room, preventing cold spots.
Beaumont’s Hotwire system is a 3mm thick, spooled electric heating element installed directly under tiles, granite, marble or slate, with no need to lay any extra expansion joints. The system heats the room to a comfortable temperature of 22°C and doesn’t need maintenance. In the unlikely event of a cable fault, the damage can be easily fixed without ripping up the floor.
