3 Easy Steps to Installation
Start laying your mat nearest to the thermostat location. Unroll it with the yellow wire down.
When you reach the end of your first run, separate the yellow heating wire from the blue mesh at the loop ends. Use a utility knife or scissors to cut the blue mesh to size. NEVER CUT THE YELLOW WIRE!
After cutting mesh, the next run can be at any angle. Curves or angles can also be accommodated by detaching the yellow heating wire from the blue mesh, and just laying the wire independently.
Long lengths of Thermonet heatmat can be cut and turned any number of times. After positioning, Thermonet should lie flat. Now, you are ready to trowel your tile thinset or floor leveling compound over the heating mat and then lay your flooring material.
Ceramic Floor Tile, Marble, Slate, etc.
Thermonet underfloor heating works very well with all types of ceramic and stone-based floor surfaces, since these offer minimum resistance to heat transfer. The normal surface temperature of ceramic floor surfaces is slightly lower than room temperature, which is often 20-30 degrees less than body temperature. This results in the floor felling very cool to the touch.
Thermonet underfloor heating systems efficiently remove this uncomfortable chill. The programmable thermostat will keep your floor at your desired comfort level - never hot, just comfortable.
Vinyl, Linoleum, Laminate, Carpet
Almost every type of floor surface is suitable for use with Thermonet underfloor heating. Heat conduction remains high as these types of materials offer little resistance to heat transfer. Thermonet heatmats for these type of floor surfaces are laid in the normal way, except that they need to be covered with a layer of self-leveling floor compound.
To ensure even heat distribution, the self-leveling floor compound should be a minimum thickness of 3/8". Allow the self-leveling floor compound to cure. Then, the floor of your choice can be installed in the normal manner.
