Under Area Rug Heating
Like an electric blanket for your floor, RugHeat™ is the only CE Listed portable heating system in the world approved for use under area rugs. The heated floor mat by RugHeat™ is an innovative heating system that turns area rugs into "invisible" space heaters and lets you stay warm and keep your sense of style. You can also use this as a heated pet mat!
The heated floor mat is perfect for your bathrooms, bedrooms, dining room, family room, kitchen, play rooms, that cold room over your garage, basements, and more. Great for yoga and stretching exercises, too! You can also find a Heated Door Mat at CozyWinters for a snow melting entrance mat to prevent slipping.
The heated floor mat by RugHeat™ is the attractive solution for warming cold spots in any room of the home or office. You simply place the heating mat under your area rug and plug it in. RugHeat™ can help increase comfort while lowering energy costs. RugHeat™ is guaranteed safe no matter what type of floor covering is under your area rug (stone, tile, wood, laminate, vinyl and/or carpet). The power cord length is 8 feet. RugHeat™ carries a Five Year Limited Warranty.
Simple, Safe, Energy Efficient
Eliminate those cold spots in your home with this versatile, high-tech, portable electric radiant heating blanket instead of dangerous space heaters.
Perfect on top of existing hard surface flooring that feels cold or over already installed carpets in your bedroom or living room to add that extraordinary on-demand heating comfort right at your feet.
This floor heating mat is primarily used as supplemental heating, not primary heating. For primary heating, you must cover 70% of the floor area in a room and keep doors closed, so heat does not migrate to adjoining rooms.

Note: You must use a non-slip/non-creep pad with this product.
The non-slip/non-creep pads can be found at your local hardware or flooring store or we carry a specially designed Non-Slip Thermal Insulation Pad. The Non-Slip Thermal Insulation Pad for this product prevents wrinkling, buckling, crawling, and moving of an area rug and the RugHeat™ on any type of flooring, plus it provides thermal insulation between a hard floor and the heating panel, improving the RugHeat™ electric radiant floor heater's performance and efficiency.
Can this be used in a bathroom if plugged into a GF plug?
The heating panel is waterproof, so it can be used in a bathroom. It has its own GFCI plug, so you can safely plug it into a standard outlet. The cord is 8ft long. You must use a non-slip pad under the heating panel. You must cover the heating panel with an area rug or a bath mat. The area rug or bath mat must NOT have a rubber or non-slip backing, as this will stop the heat being conducted to the top of the rug.
Can this be used outside?
Heating panel is designed for indoor use only. It must be installed on top of a non-slip pad and covered with a rug. The rug heats up and acts as a radiant heating surface. Radiant heat warms people and objects in the room, not the air. If installed outside, the heat produced by the unit will be dissipated into the air and the customer will think it is not working.
Is this OK to use with a braided polypropylene rug on top?
No problem using a braided polypropylene rug on top of the heating panel, provided the rug does NOT have a non-slip backing. You must use a separate non-slip pad under the heating panel, then place the rug on top of the heating panel.
Can it be installed under carpeting?
It can be installed under wall to wall carpeting. Tape the heating panel to the standard carpet pad and stretch the carpet over the heating panel. Be very careful with the teeth on the carpet stretching equipment, otherwise the heating panel can be damaged and cannot be repaired.
Recommended floor pad type?
We recommend our specially designed non-slip Thermal Insulation Pad
, as it prevents wrinkling, buckling, crawling, and moving of an area rug and the heater on any type of flooring. Provides thermal insulation between a hard floor and the heating panel, improving RugHeat's performance and efficiency.
Can you put heavy furniture on it? Accent chair and sofa?
Furniture with at least 2" clearance at the base can be placed on top of the rug covering the heating panel. Weight is not a problem. The clearance is necessary to allow hot air to escape from under the furniture. If the air is trapped under the furniture, the heating panel may overheat and trip the attached GFCI plug, stopping the heater from working.
Is it safe?
Provided it is used strictly according to the operating instructions, it is perfectly safe. The heating panel has a Class A GFCI plug attached to the cord, which will trip if there is any electrical fault. In addition, the heating element is "partially self-correcting", and lowers operating temperature for a short while if insulating items are left on top of the heated rug for short periods.
