It is recommended to use an anti-slip underlay underneath the Rugbuddy for thermal efficiency.  Jute,  felt and foam underlays are most suitable if the Rugbuddy is to be used on top of tiled or screeded flooring to prevent downward heat losses.

RugBuddy Under Rug Heater vs. Other Conventional Heaters Running Costs

RugBuddy® is guaranteed safe no matter what type of floor covering is under your area rug (stone, tile, wood, laminate, vinyl and/or carpet).   The lack of moving air is advantageous to people with allergies.  It does not dry the air the same way conventional heating does.

RugBuddy® is maintenance-free and comes optionally with a non-slip and non-creep underlay.  The smartest radiant floor heater in the world!

Please note:  If using the Rugbuddy on a tiled or screeded floor, we recommend using carpet underlay underneath for thermal efficiency.  This can also be bought at any carpet or flooring supplier.  Jute,  felt and foam underlays are most suited for this purpose. 

Non-slip underlays are sufficient when using the Rugbuddy on wood, laminate or carpets.

  1. Very quick delivery and happy with the product.

  2. Nice product, good delivery process but don’t imagine that 250W is going to create a heat wave

  3. Great product – service great…

  4. The service was good, the packaging is good and neat. The product itself is a little weak for the price. I ordered the smaller 1.2 x 1.65m under rug heating mat. 320watts. While it does take the chill out of a small room, I think R2700 is way too high. Better off with 4 wall mounted panel heaters at the same price.
