3.     Installation your floor warming system

        Tools and materials needed

You need following items to install and test your floor warming system,


*Utility knife

*Wire stripper

*Tape measure




Also you will need the appropriate tools and materials to install the particular floor, include products like self-leveling mortar, thin-set mortar, backer board, tile, notched trowel, and any others for your specific floor.


3.2 Installation steps

Please follow below steps to ensure a successful installation.


3.2.1 Preparing the subfloor

Make sure that the floor area to be heated is clean, flat and free of debris what can damage the mat, like nails, staples or protruding objects.


Drill or cut a hole through the wall sill plate under the electrical junction box location. You will use this hole to route the cold lead and the temperature sensor wire to the box.


3.2.2 Orient the floor heating mat

Lay out the mat according to your original design, using as few turns as possible and ensuring that the cold lead is near the electrical junction box. Remove the clear plastic lining and roll out the mat with adhesive side down to temporarily hold it in place. If it’s necessary to change directs, please refer step 3.2.3

If it’s necessary to remove the heating cable from the mesh to route around an obstacle, be sure to maintain at least 3 inches space between heating cables.


3.2.3 Changing direction of heating mat to fit the floor design

To make a turn in the direction the mat is being installed, cut the mesh with scissor being not to damage the heating cable.

The align the mat in the desired direction ensuring that the adhesive side of mat is down to roll it into the position.


3.2.4 Route the cold leads

Position the cold leads close as possible to the wall near the electrical junction box, the cold leads must be routed outside of heating mat, never under or over the heating cable and must not protrude higher than the heating mat.


If the splice is higher than the mat, you must gouge out the sub floor to allow the splice to lay flat under the tile.


Run the cold leads inside the wall to the electrical junction box location.


Note: Put the cord label on the cold leads inside the box. If it’s necessary to shorten the cold lead, be sure to store the cord label in the junction box.

3.2.5 Place the temperature sensor

Center the sensor between two runs of the heating cable, 4 inches form the end of heating cable loop (see image 4). Run the sensor inside the wall to the electrical junction box location.

Note: Don’t allow heating cable, cold lead or temperature sensor to cross themselves or each other.


3.2.6 Perform insulation resistance test, heating cable resistance test, and the sensor resistance test before embedding in mortar.


Note: You must perform the above 3 test before embed the mat in mortar to confirm that the heating cable and temperature sensor haven’t been damaged.


3.2.7 Embed the heating mat in mortar

After laying out the heating mat and routing the cold lead and the temperature sensor to the electrical junction box, apply a thin coat of self-leveling mortar over the mat. Please be sure to use the flat side of the trowel to avoid any damage to the mat. Spread the mortar evenly over the mat filling in all voids between the floor, mesh and heating cable. Once the surface is smooth and even, allow it to sure to hard surface before installing the tile or stone.

3.2.8 Repeat the insulation resistance test, heating cable resistance test and the sensor resistance test after embedding in mortar.


Note: You MUST repeat the above 3 test to ensure that the heating cable and temperature sensor have not been damaged.


3.2.9 Install tile or stone

To install tile or stone, apply a layer of acrylic or latex modified thin-set using the ridged side of your trowel. Tile and grout the floor using best industry practices and in accordance with instructions provided by the manufacturer of the tile or stone.


Don’t power the floor warming system until the thin-set and grout are fully cured.


3.2.10 Again repeat the 3 test after floor covering.


Note: You MUST repeat the above 3 test to ensure that the heating cable and temperature sensor have not been damaged.


3.2.11 Install the thermostat

Please refer the document of thermostat installation manual, included in the thermostat box for instructions on how to install it.


3.2.12 Program the thermostat

Please refer the document of thermostat installation manual, included in the thermostat box for instructions on how to program it.




4. Additional important warnings

*Must observe this installation manual. It must confirm the floor warming system requirement of construction and floor’s structure, and electric condition.
