A heater that costs just $10 per year to operate
The foot warmer mat heater will heat you more effectively and with over 90% less energy than most other electric heaters on the market.
The foot mat heater delivers a pleasant radiant warmth from directly below where you are sitting.
And it's super cheap to operate. Your heating costs will be just $10 per year per heater (when used for 4 hours per day, every day, for 4 months!).
TIP: We recommend using the Foot Mat Heater in conjunction with the EcoSwitch. That way you can easily switch the heater on and off at desk level.
The problem with other electric heaters
Electric heaters used in most homes and offices in Australia are inefficient energy guzzlers. In fact, heating is one of the key drivers of high electricity bills.
Electric heaters typically consume between 1,000 and 2,400 watts and fail to direct heat where it is needed most.
Oil column heaters sit there looking innocent, but actually consume a large amount of power. Much of the heat produced by oil column heaters is lost above the heater, rising to unoccupied areas of the room (ie. the ceiling).
Electric fan or convection heaters, on the other hand, try to overcome this problem by forcing heat out horizontally across the room. This creates another problem: air movement promotes cooling, not heating. So, to counteract this cooling effect, these heaters need to consume a large amount of power to produce a useful amount of heat.
Next come the bar or panel radiator type heaters. In theory, these aren't as bad because they try to employ one of the most effective heating methods: radiant heat. But, their downsides include over-spec power consumption, significant fire hazard and the fact they never seem to last for more than one winter.
The solution: direct heat where you need it
The solution to many of the woes described above is simple: deliver radiant / conductive heat directly to where it is needed (the occupants of a room).
After coming to this conclusion a few years ago we went in search of a foot warmer mat heater that could be used at workstations or in front of the TV. We couldn't find one that was a suitable price and quality, so we got our own unit manufactured.
This foot mat heater pad has now been on the market for over 3 years and the version you see here is a 'third generation' device with improvements on the previous models.

Frequently Asked Questions
What additional control options are available?
The Foot Mat Heater is controlled by a simple on/off switch and delivers a constant even temperature.
If you want easier access to the on/off switch we suggest using it in conjunction with an EcoSwitch. That way you can hide the foot mat heater cord behind your desk and place the EcoSwitch on top of the desk for easy access and control.
We also sell the HeaterMate plug-in thermostat which can be used with any type of portable heater.
Is it available in other colours?
The foot mat heater is currently only available in the grey carpet material as pictured.
Do you offer bulk discounts for offices, warehouses, factories and other workplaces?
Yes. Some places of work are notoriously cold to work in. See our reduced price above for bulk orders of 10 or more units.
