Lake Zurich, Ill ⎯ WarmlyYours has launched a new digital tool which is expected to make online quoting for electric floor heating faster and easier.
The new tool was officially launched earlier this week by WarmlyYours, a radiant heating manufacturer that specializes in floor warming systems. The Design Tool allows users to “draw” a digital version of their project to scale with fixtures like doorways, sofas, showers, vanities etc. According to Julia Billen, owner and president of WarmlyYours, this level of detail was added to the Design Tool to help increase accuracy during the quotation process.
“Floor heating is a unique product to quote because there are often many variables that need to be accounted for. We decided a long time ago that the best way for us to help our customers was for us to provide them with the tools they need,” said Billen. “And now, anyone with a computer and a tape measure can deliver accurate project information to us and we can make sure they get a highly accurate quote in return.”
Currently, the Design Tool can be accessed from within the Radiant Floor Heating Quote Builder, another online tool developed by WarmlyYours. The user will then be offered an optional "guided tour" of the Design Tool's features. Once the user completes their “drawing” of their project using the Design Tool, they can then get a side-by-side comparison of the various floor heating systems that would work for their project. This comparison will include pricing and product information and from that stage, the user can either move forward with purchasing the system or request a custom installation plan. If they select the latter, a highly skilled team of engineers will use the “drawing” to create a custom SmartPlan that includes an itemized quote, an electrical plan, and an illustrated installation plan, all of which can typically be delivered in 1-2 business days.
The Design Tool, along with various other online tools like the Heat Loss Calculator and Operating Cost Calculator, was completely developed in-house by the WarmlyYours IT Department. Billen said that the Design Tool is continuing the proud tradition of WarmlyYours placing an emphasis on combining radiant heating with cutting-edge technology.
“We were one of the first radiant heating vendors to recognize the importance of online sales and we were the first to build interactive quoting tools,” said Billen. “This is only possible because WarmlyYours has an insanely talented and knowledgeable IT Team to get it done. I’m so proud of the hard work and countless hours they’ve spent bringing the Design Tool to life and I can’t wait to see what they come up with next.”
Currently, the Design Tool is desktop-only but mobile optimization is expected for the future.
