Installing an electric floor heater isn’t the most difficult thing in the world to do, but you still cannot take things for granted. The following floor heating installation tips shall help get the work done sans any major/minor hiccups.
Don’t Cut the Mesh Wire
During roll installation, make sure you do not cut the mesh wire. Generally, a floor heating system comprises three wires: one running from the rear of the mat, the other to the mat’s beginning, and the third one is embedded and sewn within the mat. The wires at the mat’s ends could be cut when being placed in the wall and wired to the thermostat. These wires, called pole leads, can be cut. But the mesh wire shouldn’t be meddled with.
If you’re contemplating scheduling a floor heating installation project, keep the contractor in the know about your requirements and ideas and everything else relating to the work. Moreover, plan things and carry out all the prep work so that the installation is done quickly and smoothly. For instance, cut the panels properly and place them on the floor. If the installation is to be done in the bathroom or kitchen, inform the contractor beforehand about permanent fixtures and their exact location.
When we remove the mat from the box, we use an Ohms meter for testing to confirm the mat’s resistance value. And during mat installation, we make sure to have a circuit check handy. The circuit check would help detect wiring mistakes if any. If there are issues, such as an extremely tight bend, an alarm would sound off as a signal.
Don’t take things into your own hand if you’re not completely sure, especially if you’re meddling with something as essential as home heating and cooling. Get on-board the experts.
