Floor Heating Insulating Underlayment

ThermalSheet by WarmlyYours is a new synthetic cork insulating underlayment.

The product is installed on top of a subfloor and below a heating element. It is recommended when installing an electric floor heating system over a concrete slab to prevent heat loss. By creating a thermal break, the heat is prevented from sinking into the concrete and more heat radiates into the floor covering and room.

In addition to preventing unnecessary heat loss, ThermalSheet offers some additional sound dampening and double the crack isolation benefits when compared to cork. The product, which comes in two-foot by three-foot sheets, is approximately 25 times lighter than traditional backer board and is less than a quarter-inch thick, so it won’t significantly increase floor height.

ThermalSheet was developed to replace a previous insulating underlayment for a number of reasons, chief among them being availability to end-users. WarmlyYours says the new product will not suffer from the same supply chain issues that the previous iteration did.
