Was your electric floor heating system installed directly over a concrete sub-floor?

Installing any electric radiant floor heating system directly over a concrete sub-floor will increase the heat up time.  This is because the heat is drawn first into the concrete sub-floor and then your floor covering.  This is why Warmup recommends installing Warmup Insulation Boards (hard or soft depending on the floor covering material) over the concrete sub-floor to act as a thermal break, forcing the heat to be radiated upwards first rather than down, thus vastly speeding up the heat up time for your floor heating system.

If floor insulation was not installed, there is no need to re-install the floor heating system, it will still function properly and you will still experience all the wonderful benefits of a heated floor.
