Ecowarm is a lightweight, quick responding, low thermal mass system best known for its ideal mixture of performance and cost making it the best value in the industry.
Ecowarm is a modular radiant board system comprised of grooved plywood boards laminated with aluminum designed to be used in new construction and remodeling over a sub-floor or when properly installed, over cement. The two board types in the Ecowarm system have 2 patterns; straight and combo that are laid out and installed in a pattern and attached by means of construction adhesive combined with screws or cross stapling as recommended in the Installation Manual. The pattern creates the pathway into which 1/2″ ASTM F 876-877 PEX tubing is placed. When warm water is pumped through the tubing, it then rapidly provides luxurious, silent, even heat. It can be used under almost any floor covering.. Typically the board is applied over the 80% to 90% of a project that is not under stairs or cabinets. Please download our 40 page Installation Manual which contains installation instructions and numerous floor assembly details.
ECOWARM is manufactured under US Patent 6,533,185 and patents are pending.
The thin thermal mass and conductive aluminum laminate provide fast recovery allowing the heat to be dispersed quickly. The responsiveness of Ecowarm permits the use of setback thermostats saving fuel and adding comfort. Conventional 1 ½” Gypcrete or concrete take four times as long to respond.
The Ecowarm highly conductive aluminum laminate delivers heat with little resistance permitting the use of lower water temperatures resulting in lower energy bills.
Radiant systems using a gypsum pour or concrete thermal mass weight 12-14 lbs/ sq/ft over a subfloor. Ecowarm weights 2 lbs./sq/ft eliminating the need for upgraded joist systems.
Ecowarm is only ¾” thick making it ideal for remodels and allowing a nailing space for sheetrock on the floor plate.
Ecowarm and radiant tubing can be installed quickly within the flow of a construction project without the mess and construction delays associated with gypsum pours or concrete.
