Thermostatic comfort control

Complete comfort control is easily achieved with the addition of an optional manual or programmable thermostats available through Coldbuster. Automated operation enhances the energy efficiency of the Coldbuster carpet heating system. Programs can be set to regulate comfort levels via floor or room air temperature, up to 4 cycles per day, accommodating different weekday and weekend routines.

Versatile heating

Coldbuster carpet heating is installed on top of the underlay, directly beneath the carpet. The 1.5mm thin carpet heating element comes as a pre-configured 500mm wide strip. The heating element is stitched to polyester mesh to maintain spacing, resulting in an even heating of the carpet surface. The heater is waterproof, fully earthed and needs to be connected to an RCD protected circuit after the installation to ensure full protection against fire and shock hazards.

Multi-application heating system

Coldbuster carpet heating systems have been used across Australia for residential, commercial and industrial applications including houses & apartments, churches, halls, public buildings, aged care homes, schools & universities to name a few examples. The 1.5mm thin Coldbuster carpet heating element is installed on the underlay directly beneath the carpet – perfect for retrofit and/or renovations as there are no screeds raising floor levels.

Accidental spills or steam cleaning presents no problem. Coldbuster carpet heating systems comply with IEC specifications and carry the CE mark. 

Straight Forward Installation

Installing Coldbuster carpet heating is easy and no special tools are required. A detailed installation manual and personalised layout is supplied with each Coldbuster carpet heating kit to detail the floor preparation, electrical requirements, heater installation and thermostat connection. Additional technical and installation support is also available via the website or via phone. Following the recommended layout provided, unroll the heater strip and cut the mesh to change the direction as illustrated below. Care must be taken to never cut or cross over elements. The Coldbuster carpet heater is stuck on the top of the underlay, using 50mm wide masking tape. Tape the strips securely to prevent shifting when the carpet is unrolled. There will be a 20mm gap between the mesh when strips are laid parallel. Alternatively, hot melt glue can be used to secure the mats.

  • Coldbuster tile heating is classified as an appliance and can be installed by a competent person. The heater must be connected to a RCD (safety switch) protected circuit by an electrician. All wiring must conform to AS/NZS 3000:2000 and local wiring regulations.
