Vancouver, Canada-based Nuheat is officially setting up shop in the United States with new offices that will service the Midwest, Northeast and Pacific Northwest, as well as California, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, Montana, and the Dakotas.

Nuheat's floor warming system utilizes a patented technology of energy-efficient radiant heating mats designed for installation beneath hard floor covering surfaces that are typically cold to the touch.

The system also features a programmable thermostat that allows the homeowner to set the floor temperature. With more than 60 different standard sizes, the heating mats are designed to fit most rooms and custom mats can be fabricated to fit a room with curves or angles.

The heating mats are installed directly between the floor and subfloor and require the same bonding materials that are used to lay tile floors, the company says.
