Electric Heated Flooring System Installation
home owners have installed electric in floor heating throughout their homes,
and they've loved how luxurious their floor heating system has made their
kitchens, bathrooms and more. Listen our floor heating experts learn the steps
of how to apply electric in floor heating with the TempZone Flex Roll System.
Start by taking measurements
of your area and need of warmth, exclude appliances, fixtures and cabinets.
Submit your dimensions to our team of experts and we will design a free floor
plan to warm your area as efficiently as possible. When placing an order, call
or visit our website, and our team of experienced professionals will be more
than happy to assist you. As soon as you received your products, test every
roll with a digital ohmmeter, to make sure the rolls are in good working shape.
The test should be within 15% of the value marked on the UL label. The floor
plan is key to a successful installation. Your plan has been custom designed
for your individual project based on the dimensions you gave us.
Inspect the subfloor surface
carefully. It is important to remove any sharp edges or pointed objects that
might damage the heating element. Using a suitable fan and referring to the
installation plan provided, mark off areas on the floor where permanent heavy
fixtures will rest. Tools needed for system installation are: digital ohmmeter,
scissors, staple gun, circuit check, tape measure, hot glue gun. Follow the
instructions on your floor plan and start rolling out your mesh roll on the
proper direction in lengths. Keep in mind that the heating cable should be face
down. This will help protect the heating cable during the rest of your install.
When you get to a turn,
simply cut the mesh all the way across, taking extra care not to cut the
heating cable. Take the remaining section of the heating cable and move it into
place to start your next run. If you need to work around an object or a tricky
corner, you have the option to freeform. Freeform spaces are filled with loose
lengths of heating element. A wavy line with an arrow will appear on the
installation plan to indicate the area that needs to be filled. This symbol is
accompanied by unit of measure in a circle that will indicate the amount of
fiber glass meshed to be removed.
Once the tape is trimmed, the
heating element separated and the fiber glass mesh removed, position the
heating element by hand and secure it to the floor with hot glue or tape. Try
to maintain the three inch spacing similar to the spacing on the heating rolls.
When securing the heating rolls, make sure they are straight and that you allow
for proper spacing between the heating cables, making sure not to overlap the
heating cable. Depending on the flooring type, hot glue or staples can be used
to secure the heating roll to the floor.
When laying in the sensor,
position the heating sensor between the heating cables, making sure not to
overlap any of the cables. Weave the sensor between the mesh or hot glue the
sensor to hold it securely in place, so it’s not to move when applying mortar.
With an ohmmeter, test the rolls again to make sure they are in good working
shape. The test should be within 15% of the value marked on the UL label. To
complete the electrical connections, start by connecting the Warmly Yours
circuit check to validate that there is no short in the system. Once completed,
allow professional electrician to wire your Warmly Yours thermostat, following
the instructions provided with the thermostat.
Install the flooring of your
choice. Allow proper thin set. Your time is recommended by the manufacturer
before powering up the Warmly Yours electric radiant heat system.
