Start by taking measurements of your area in 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 receive 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 pan and referring to the installation plan provided, markup areas on the floor where permanent heavy fixtures will rest. Tools needed for a 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 in the proper direction and 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 tricky corner, you have the option to free form, free form 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. The symbol is accompanied by a unit of measure in a circle that will indicate the amount of fiberglass must be removed. Once the tape is trimmed, the heating element separated and the fiberglass mesh removed, position the heating element by hand and secure it to the floor with hot glue or tape. Try to maintain the 3 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. Wave 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 a 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 label.
