Charleston, SC – July 20, 2011 – Greener Product LLC has recently announced that Electro Plastics, Inc. dba STEP Warmfloor, Maryland Heights, MO has been awarded the Greener Product Certification Seal for its energy saving radiant flooring systems.
STEP Warmfloor™ offers the ultimate in electric radiant floor heating. This innovative, energy-efficient, patented electro plastics element is distinctly different from hydronic (water tubing) and electric cable systems.
What is radiant heating?
Heat does not rise. Heat goes to cold. Hot air rises, which is why Step Warmfloor™ feels so comfortable. With Step Warmfloor™, heat is kept where it is needed – at the floor. This type of heat is called radiant heat, which is the process in which energy is emitted, as particles or waves, by one body and transmitted through an intervening medium or space, then absorbed by another body.
The even distribution of heat eliminates drafts and gives a pleasant comfort at a lower temperature. Maintaining a continuous even temperature is more efficient than an on-and-off heating system.
The self-regulating heating elements only draw the energy required to maintain the ideal temperature. Individual zoning for each room is not only comfortable but also very cost effective.
Watch an installation of STEP Warmfloor™ on the DIY Network. In the episode entitled “Timeless Traditional” from the show Kitchen Renovations, host Paul Ryan helps a homeowner couple update the kitchen of their 1918 bungalow by installing our product in their floor.
