We received an email with some questions that are very common, and it seemed like sharing the answers could be helpful to others looking into WarmFörm for their projects. Ryan asked: • For utilities, are these generally set in the subsoil prior to beginning the gravel base install or is it best to install utilities […]
This WarmFörm slab in Ohio is our first installation of our new Passive House WarmFörm elements. This one features the 6″ vertical face to match with the house’s 6″ thick exterior insulation. More photographs are posted in the project album.

Right now we are spending a non-trivial amount of time making sure our customers understand the configuration of their WarmFörm installation, and laying the ground work […]
