The technology behind infrared overfloor heating
Although infrared waves have been studied for years; however, infrared heating technology is relatively new. However, thanks to its benefits infrared heating panels are soon going to become the hottest new way to heat up your home.
What is an infrared heating?
It is a new- generation electric heating system consisting of two layers of polymer film, separated by rows of carbon graphite strips. Graphite strips have high electrical resistance. As a result, electric
current passes through a copper wire, leading to the heating of the elements. For operational safety, the system is equipped with a silver anti-spark grid.

Advantages of infrared floor heating
The benefits of infrared heating panels compared to other floor heating systems are the following:
- Low cost heating (low energy consumption and can reach up to 98% energy efficiency)
- Doesn't dry out the air and does not deplete oxygen level in the room
- Isn't noisy
- Ionises the air and eliminates odors
- fastest heating installation. It is placed under any floor surface (laminate, parquet flooring, tarpaulin, carpet etc.) which allows for the heating to be installed in a few hours and enables immediate use.
Perhaps most importantly, the infrared heating technology has a beneficial effect on human health and is the most comfortable form of heating. The acrylic walls of the incubator are opaque to infrared rays which are used because they generate heat similar to that of the mother's body.
Additionally, infrared heating is widely used in surgery, dentistry and sports medicine.
Furthermore, you will experience a stable and comfortable temperature all throughoutthe house due to the installation location of your infrared heating. Air-conditions andradiators cannot offer the same results.
No matter how cozy your furniture is, the same adventures await you after the installation of the infrared heating.
Most asked questions
1. Why choose RexVa?
It offers the lowest price for the best quality. RexVa is the leading underfloor heating
film manufacturing company in Korea. All products sold by the company have the
highest quality, long term warranties and customers from more than 20 countries
(America, Canada, Japan, Europe, Russia, China, Kazakhstan and others).
2. For the installation of the infrared underfloor heating do we need a specific floor
The only requirement is that the surface should be somewhat even. Either than that the
type of flooring is not significant. Our heating technicians use thermal insulation by the
German company AXTON to smooth floor surfaces and prevent heat loss.
3. After installation is my floor going to be raised?
The difference will be subtle. The floor will not be raised more than 5-6 mm and most
likely the detail will go unnoticed.
4. At what temperature should I set my thermostat?
You can set any temperature allowed by the thermostat itself. However, we would
advice following the recommendations of the heating manufacturer. On average a
comfortable temperature around the house is around 24-26 С and
parquet and laminate flooring temperature shouldn't exceed 27-30 C.
5. Are infrared heating panels a reliable source compared to heating achieved with the
use of cables or water?
RexVa infrared floor heating is very reliable. It is main advantage is connection in
parallel. If a heater element fails it can be replaced easily and not affect the use of
In cable and water systems an element failure will affect the heater and result to drastic
6. What if my area has an irregular shape and columns?
Our technicians can install the heating no matter the shape of your area because RexVa
offers different element sizes.
7. What happens with the floor after the installation of the heating panels?
You can either invite your own floor and installation specialist. For your convenience, we
also have specialists that offer different types of laminate flooring and can proceed with
the installation for a small extra charge.
