HEATED FLOORS IN A COTTAGE: ENJOY YOUR GET-AWAY RESIDENCE IN THE SPRING AND FALL TOO.
Cottages are great in the summer time. But there is no reason they can’t be havens of comfort in the Spring and Fall either.
Electric Floor Heating systems can provide sole-source heating and allow you to escape year-round. Prompt to heat up, they are the perfect on-demand system for weekend getaways.
DID YOU KNOW OUR HEATED FLOORS SYSTEMS ARE USED WORLDWIDE AS A PRIMARY HEAT SOURCE?
Imagine if you could get rid of this noisy heat pump or furnace and the maintenance that comes with it? Wasn’t the point of a get-away to… well, get away from it all?
Warmup’s EN422-2 testing facility in Germany lead to a 5-year post-occupancy monitoring program where we operate and monitor homes around the world entirely heated with Warmup floor heating systems. Warmup is a proven and reliable heat source.
PREVENT PIPES FROM BURSTING DURING COLD MONTHS
To prevent the water from freezing in the pipes and fixtures in your home-away-from-home, the key is to keep the building to slightly above freezing. That can be costly and quite ineffective with traditional heat sources. (Source: Homes Winnipeg Free Press)
Electric Floor Heating system and Pipe Protection Cables are by far the best way to maintain an even ambient temperature at a low cost.
Warmup programmable thermostats allow for a “freeze-protection” setting and will keep the floors at 50F/10C, thereby cost-effectively safeguarding your precious retreat.
Another common mistake is that people don’t check the window locks. Are you sure you have closed all the windows in the cottage? Remember that the combination of turning the heat off and leaving a window open (even slightly) could make the pipes burst and result in a flood in your cottage. Luckily, this can be easily avoided by double checking the windows whenever the heating is turned off and when preparing for winter.
RENT YOUR COTTAGE PEACE OF MIND
The dream of homeownership and especially second-home ownership can come with its fair share of duties and headaches. Do you have lengthy instruction notes for the furnace and the water heater? Did your guests turn off the heat when they left?
Heated Floors as a primary heat source from Warmup can answer this very simply. Turning on the heat takes just a few clicks on the 4iE Smart WiFi thermostat and you can freely monitor the device from your home automation system or smart device (download the MyHeating app on your phone or tablet).
Heated Floors in a cottage provides efficient, soothing heat with zero maintenance: no leaking, no freezing, no moving parts. And did you know it also increases the value of your investment?
