Frequently Asked Questions

ECOMAXX is a strong, flexible, thin aluminium alloy foil. It is made of an innovative aluminium alloy that heats when electricity is passed through the material. So by design it cannot overheat. ECOMAXX operates on low-voltage and is normally connected to a 24-volt power supply, but can also be run by solar or wind-power sources.  Our system is energy efficient when continuously energized,  ECOMAXX is a very safe product and ideally suited for bathrooms and other humid environments. 

It is approximately 20 W/sqm per hour, average for the whole hating season, but it highly depends on insulation an properties of a building. Learn more.

Yes Aluminium alloy heating tape is 0.5 thick.

Yes. All types of tiles are good for the underfloor heating, They have good thermal conductivity and even better thermal accumulation properties.  

Yes. Marble and travetine are very good thermal accumulators. 

Yes. Concrete has good thermal accumulation properties. 

No. Carpets are good insulators. 

Yes. Usually the manufacturers of the engineered wood specifies if it is suitable for the underfloor heating.

No. If the tiles or concrete above the heating tape is thick, it only initially  takes more time to heat up. Once it is warm, the thick material accumulates and emits the heat evenly. 

No. Solid and flat surface is required.

No. The system works even without any insulation, but the energy loss will be considerable and running cost very high.  Learn more

Three cord 2.5 mm cable from main DB to the ECOMAXX transformer connected to it’s own fuse.  For each heating zone separately. 

Yes.

Yes. In that case ECOMAXX should be treated as secondary heating device and declared running cost is not valid. 

No. All permanent furniture are avoided.

Yes.

Under the shower tray No.
Under the walk in shower Yes.

Yes. However, the heating is mostly needed when there is not enough sun light. Having a battery is highly recommended. 

If everything is properly prepared we can install up to 100 sqm in one day.

You could visit our office where we have it installed or we could take you to one of our clients.  Contact us

Yes. It is not in our standard offer. There are various smart thermostats on the market. Almost all of them could be connected to our system. It is up to you to choose one and consult with us. 

Yes. We can do the supply delivery and installation. That is not included in our price list.

There are additional costs of preparing the flat solid surface (cement screed or similar) and supply delivery and installation of thermal insulation. I could be done by our company or by the client.
