Large Size, Italian Made Heated Foot Mat
Our popular foot mat heater just keeps on getting better. This year, we're launching the Warmset Foot Warmer Mat Heater in Australia & NZ. It has the following features:
- Quality Italian fabric for heightened comfort, safety and longevity.
- Footswitch with LED indicator light for hands-free operation.
- At 75cm x 50cm, it's about 50% larger in area than our previous model.
- Includes an insulated backing layer for unparalleled energy efficiency and floor protection.
- Uses just 100 watts of power.
Comfortable, convenient and easy to use. Our foot mat heater will keep you toasty warm while seated or standing at your desk or elsewhere.
A Foot Mat Heater That's Effective & Efficient
The foot warmer will heat you more effectively, using up to 90% less energy than other electric heaters on the market.
The mat heater delivers a pleasant radiant warmth from directly below where you are sitting or standing.
It's super cheap to operate. If used for 4 hours per day, every day during winter, it will cost around $10 per year per heater.
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.
Most electric heaters consume between 1,000 and 2,400 watts and fail to direct heat where it's needed.
Other electric heaters, such as those pictured, are cheap to buy but very expensive to operate. And they're usually not very effective.
Oil column heaters look 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 the room's unoccupied areas.
Electric fan or convection heaters try to overcome this problem by forcing heat across the room. This creates another problem: air movement promotes cooling, not heating! To counteract this, they consume an enormous amount of power for their size.
Next up are the bar or panel radiator type heaters. In theory, these aren't as bad because they create more effective 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 and conductive heat to where it's needed. The foot mat heater achieves this by silently heating you and a small area around you.
It's ideal for use as an under-desk heater at work or at home in front of the TV (see also our electric throw blanket). We've sold these heaters to many workplaces, including factories, warehouses, shops, and offices.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I stand on the heated mat?
Yes. As standing desks increase in popularity, we get this question more often. You can stand on it, walk over it, or rest your feet on it.
Are other control options available?
The foot mat heater is controlled by an in-line on/off footswitch. There's even an orange indicator light on the footswitch to remind you when it's switched on.
Since the heated mat plugs into a standard power outlet, it can be switched on/off with remote sockets, timers, smart switches, or plug-in thermostats. See our range of power control devices.
Is it available in other colours?
The foot mat heater is currently only available in the grey carpet material as pictured.
