RugBuddy Turns Carpets & Rugs into Heated Floors

Like an electric blanket for your floor, RugBuddy is the only portable heating system in the world approved for use under area rugs. Rug Buddy is an innovative heating system that turns rugs into “invisible” space heaters and lets you stay warm and keep your sense of style.

RugBuddy can be used to supplement heat in chilly rooms, or specific areas in a room off a single electrical circuit or thermostat. Even different areas within one room, such as a desk and sitting area, can be heated from a single plug or thermostat.

RugBuddy 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. RugBuddy is guaranteed safe no matter what type of floor covering is under your area rug (stone, tile, wood, laminate, vinyl, and/or carpet).

Instantly eliminate those cold spots in your home with this versatile, high-tech, portable electric radiant heating blanket instead of 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.

Non-slip, reversible, thermal insulation padding for under the RugBuddy

The KlimaGrip prevents wrinkling, buckling, crawling, and moving of an area rug and RugBuddy on any type of flooring. It also provides a thermal insulation between a hard floor and the heating panel, improving RugBuddy's performance and efficiency.

Made of two non-woven polyester fabrics that are permanently needle-punched together and coated on both sides with a specially formulated water-based sensitive dry adhesive.

Susan of New Hampshire sent us this about RugBuddy:

 “I was a bit skeptical at first, but I'm very happy with the two mats I bought. One is next to the shower and the other under my feet right now! My cats LOVE them. I have been telling everyone I know about them, too. I weave rag rugs from old cotton clothing. They are relatively thin (1/4") and the mats work well under them. I believe they might be good for Diabetics and for people who have had some kind of chemotherapy and either have no feeling in their feet or who are sensitive to cold. I live in NH and it is cold in my house. I'm pretty hardy but used to get into bed at night with cold feet. NOT anymore!”

Rhonda Haulish of Elkhart, Indiana has this to say about RugBuddy:

 “This is just a note to tell you how pleased we are with your product. We purchased 2 pads (RugBuddy) to go under carpeting in our family room, which is located over an un-heated crawl space. We live in northern Indiana and last December was unusually cold. We put your product to the test. It surpassed our expectations. We have always had to have extra blankets on our chairs for those chilly nights. I have put them away. It’s amazing what a little warmth on the floor can do to keep the entire room comfortable.”
