Tricod Inc FL004 Terra Cotta Light Pot, Round with Bubble

  • Contains one super bright LED
  • Solar powered to save energy
  • Photocell automatically turns on the LED when the sun goes down
  • Water resistant for outdoor use
  • CE certified

Not only does this light pot add style to your outdoor areas with its beautiful terra cotta finish, it also provides soft and warm light, without using any electricity. A built-in solar panel collects energy from the sun during the day. When the light pot no longer detects ample sunlight, it will automatically turn on to keep your patio or yard lit until the sun comes back up. If you ever decide you don’t want the light pot to illuminate, simply use the on/off switch. There is no flame to extinguish, making this light pot perfect for outdoors that may experience a lot of windy conditions. All power is collected in the solar panel so there is nothing to install or wire. Because the light pot gets its power exclusively from the sun, you will never see an increase in your electricity bill due to the light pot. It is water resistant and corrosion resistant, so it can be left outdoors in all weather conditions without suffering damages. Read more

Heat Your Home From the Floor Up!

The QuickMat is a self-adhesive floor heating system, designed for tile or stone flooring projects. Easily install the QuickMat under your flooring to make your home’s heating system more energy-efficient and save you money. QuickMat consists of a specially-designed weave of protected electrical cables, designed to leave 75% of the flooring surface free for the tile’s adhesive. As a result, the floor heating unit will bond better to the sub-floor, so you’ll get a quality heating system without compromising the quality of your flooring installation. And you can save money by only installing QuickMat into rooms that are used most often, so you won’t waste energy heating rooms that no one will be in. With 15 Watts per sq. ft. the floor heating mats heat up quicker and produce a greater amount of heat without increasing your energy costs. The included programmable thermostat will allow control of the QuickMat with Economy, Comfort, and Vacation modes. The programmable thermostat controls every function of the electric underfloor heating system. The thermostat can be set to heat the floor of your room to different temperatures for every day of the week.

QuickMat utilizes the natural heat retention of your tiles or wood to dissipate the heat gradually and evenly throughout your flooring to warm your home from floor to the ceiling. Wall and ceiling vents are ineffective ways of heating your home. Once air blows out of the vent, it will naturally rise, moving the warm air towards the ceiling. And traditional floor vents can waste valuable floor space, forcing you to arrange your furniture around the vent to allow optimal air flow. QuickMat gives you the freedom to place your furniture anywhere you’d like and still keep the room at a comfortable and even temperature from the bottom to the top of the room. Read more
