What is Slab Heating (Heat Loss prevention)? Simply put it is a way to combat losing heat from areas that have non-heated spaces below or above them. Effective in or on heat loss prevention allows for greatly reducing heat loss and lowers overall heating costs for various spaces. Heat loss prevention is very prevalent in commercial and industrial applications, preventing heat loss can be applied in several environments. Slab heating is accomplished one of two ways:
- In-Slab: The heating cable is embedded in the concrete prior to being poured.
- On-Slab: The heating cable is attached to the underside of the slab with fasteners and aluminum tape.
About The Technology Behind Slab Heating
Heatizon recommends the Cozy Heat system, which uses two different technologies: Mineral Insulated or Self-Regulating cables. Ideally heat loss prevention looks to accomplish anywhere between 5 – 15 watts per square foot. Either cable technology can accomplish outputs within or near these ranges. Determining which cable to use is depending on several factors that can be discussed with your design representative from a distributor or Heatizon.
Longevity and Reliability
The Cozy Heat system is backed by Heatizon’s amazing customer support and an industry-leading 10-year warranty. Pairing the Cozy Heat cable with one of Heatizon’s revolutionary activation devices and custom panel, the choice becomes clear that Heatizon knows Slab Heating.
