CRETE-HEAT INSULATED FLOOR PANEL SYSTEMS

January 23, 2012 by  
Filed under Guest Articles on Low Cost Heating

The Crete-Heat Insulated Floor Panel System is an easily assembled modular board insulation, vapor barrier, and radiant tube holding grid. It allows for simplified installation of hydronic radiant floor heating systems in basements, garages, main floor slab on grade and above grade installations where concrete or gypcrete is normally used. Each interlocking panel, available in either 1 inch or 2 inch thicknesses of Expanded Polystyrene, covers up to 8 square feet with fasteners for 1/2″, 5/8″, 3/4″ and 7/8″ radiant tubing. A 10-mil High Impact Polystyrene film thermoformed on to the EPS Foam provides the vapor barrier. Visit www.crete-heat.com for further information. Proudly made in the USA. *****ADDITIONAL NOTES REGARDING VIDEO***** Laying of the panels showing the ship-lap interlock backwards was due to a last minute request to videotape. Some of the panels were taken up to begin videotaping that segment again and the panels were from the end of the building where the last panels were installed,resulting in what showed the ship-lap being backwards.Proper install is with the male half of the ship-lap facing upwards and the female portion connecting into it as the panels are installed. First time users loved this product. The project called for 2″ of insulation but the Crete-Heat Panels, which were donated for this job, were only available at the time in 1″, so the other 1″ insulation was used underneath to obtain the 2″ overall thickness.

    Great idea. Great video. Add music to keep interest. Music comforts the mind while learning. What kind of system does this work with; how does this work? Don’t know how to say this but does it fully work of natural energy?

    This is what the free market is all about. This product didn’t take a research grant to develop. It is simple but effective. Its one of those “Why didn’t I think of that!” products. Great job. I wish you success and happiness!

    Subtitles were added for those that CAN read, obviously you can’t. This video has over 51,000 views and your the first to make that comment, which says something about you.

    what a shitty video

  10. molutech says:

    good idea ……..good job

  11. lgryn says:

    It would be fast putting the tube down, but you lose the benefit of having reinforcing steel mesh in the concrete. I guess you could add fiber.

    put music on the video.. ?

  13. mediaomar says:

    Can this product be installed in CA. ? will the building dept. approve it? Your web site does not have a distributor in CA. , OR. WA ? does it have a ICBO number? thanks

  14. junktofunk says:

    Can this radian heat system be connected to a Solar heated water tank?

  15. Rottmad says:

    good system…probably much more expensive than regular styrodur…
    I’m building a new home this year, and floor heating will be my choice
