Past Predictions and Today’s Practices

Fifty years ago radiant heating might have sounded like science fiction. Today there’s a saying about concrete and underfloor heating systems that goes, “friends don’t let friends pour concrete without PEX in it”.

You Could Be Wasting Money Cooling an Empty Home

The best way for consumers to control their electric bills, and help the environment, is to reduce consumption.

Comparative Analysis of Current State-of-the-Art Heating

Comparing self-regulating radiant heating to traditional forced-air and renewable energy systems reveals impressive energy savings and performance using the radiant system.

Substantiated Success Backs Self-Regulating Radiant Heating System

Electro Plastics, Inc. (EPI) (dba STEP Warmfloor) inventor of the only low-voltage, flat, homogeneous self-regulating Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heater in the world, has many years of proven success.

Google Spin Off Launches Geothermal Startup

There is a macro shift in the economy towards businesses that can align the self interest with the broader interest.

Homeowners Are Making The Grade When It Comes To Energy Efficiency

While homeowners show that they are willing to take steps to conserve energy, they are not likely to sacrifice their comfort over savings

Invention of Self-Regulating, Low-Voltage Radiant Heating is Just the Beginning

Electro Plastics, Inc. (EPI) (dba STEP Warmfloor) invented the only low-voltage, flat, homogeneous self-regulating Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heater in the world, but that is just the beginning: it still needs a stronger government and industry recognition.

Early Applications of Nanoparticles Warmed Drivers’ Bottoms

Often times, the early use of an invention is far different than what the future holds for it. Such is the case for nano particles and their Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) properties.

How Nanoparticles are Differentiated from Other Heating Options

Nanoparticles, the microscopic particles having a very high surface area to volume ratio, will likely be your source to future heating comfort and efficiency.

Water Conservation: Proud Green Home of Louisville

Water is just as precious a resource as energy in the Proud Green Home of Louisville.

DC Versus AC – Challenges for DC Adaption

Photovoltaic (PV) panels and other onsite renewables generate DC, but these systems still incur losses. Grid-connected renewables require an inverter to convert their DC to AC for the grid, even though it is changed immediately back to DC for onsite use.
