Ft 240 Volt Warm Surface , Radiant Floor Heating System. THIS LISTING INCLUDING THE CABLE ONLY. "No thermostat included in this package" but the thermostat specification is listed for clarification. C-UL-US Listed, CSA, ISO 9001.2000.No EMF (Electric Magnetic Field). No return wire type for easy installation.
Our heating cable has 12 watts per Sq/Ft spaced at 3 inches & 9 watts per Sq/Ft spaced at 4 inches apart. This system can be installed under tile, marble, stone, brick, Ceramic, Linoleum, engineering wood, vinyl, laminate, carpet or slate or almost with ant floor covering and heats the flooring except Hardwood; because hardwood need is humidity and also nails and heating cable don't go well together. Precise measurements the key to a successful installation!Steps to follow to calculate the area to be heated. Make a scale diagram of the room and calculate the total surface area. Calculate the surface area of the permanent fixtures.
Subtract the surface area of the permanent fixtures from the total surface area (dont forget to calculate any angles if the walls or permanent fixtures are not square or rectangular). The result is the maximum area to be covered. Provide space for buffer zones (area not necessary to heat) where you can place any excess cable.
Subtract the buffer zone areas from the maximum area to be covered. You will get the minimum area to be covered. All measurements should be taken in inches, to insure a more precise calculation.

Coverage Example for 215 - 280 Sq. 12 watts Sq/Ft at 3 inches. 9 watts Sq/Ft at 4 inches. First, calculate the coverage of the cable you are using in square feet. Determine if you are using 12 Watts or 9 watts per sq/ft. Find out what your cost of electrical energy is per hour. Multiply the cost by your power consumption to get your cost.
If you are using a TW 050065240 unit spaced at 3 inches, your power consumption will be 12 Watts per sq/ft. Your total power consumption per hour will be: 12 X 50 = 600 Watts. If your local cost of energy is 12 cents per KW/Hr: 12 X 600 = 7200. Since a kilowatt is 1000 watts, your cost will be 7.2 cents an hour.If your heat is on for 12 hours a day, it will cost you 12 X 7.2 = 86.4 Cents. Programmable Thermostat for radiant floor heating with 5mA. Thermostat Only (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) , this thermostat is also an electronic on/off thermostat for control of temperature by means of a sensor either placed externally or build into the thermostat. It has a build in clock function for automatic comfort and setback. Heat ON Generates 12 watts of comfort per square foot of flooring (120 w/square foot). The thermostat will preset your personalized comfort. Comes as a heating cable.
A heating mat, or a combination of both. It heats safely, with less that the minimum acceptable emissions of EMF (electromagnetic field). It is an electric wire chosen for its heating properties, when a current is applied to it. The cable is placed on the surface of the floor with spacing of three inches.The cable emits 12 watts of heating per square foot of surface. A thermostat controls the temperature of the floor. The thermostat reads the temperature of the thought a probe that is on the floor, which allows adjusting the temperature of the floor according to your preference. Like the sun, the floor emits rays of heat that will warms the furniture, the walls and the people in the room, each person absorbs the heat according to their needs and everyone is comfortable. The temperature in the room will be 1 or 2 degrees lower than that of the floor. Can it be installed on hardwood floors? No, this is because there is a risk that the wood can dry and warp as a result of the heat.
No, and because the hardwood floor must be nailed. What is the electrical cost of its use? Consumption can be reduced by as much as 30 % compared with conventional convection heating (baseboard heater, forced air furnaces).This is because radiating heat is much more effective, it consumes less energy for the same cost. It can be installed by construction workers, many floor installers, and electrician, or a homeowner. As long as the thermostat is wired by a qualified electrician, according to local electrical code. If I have too much cable can I cut it? ABSOLUTELY NOT, this may be hazardous. Will it be enough to heat the room?
In North America (depending on your region), we have a need of 10 Watts per square foot to be comfortable. We generate 12 watts per square foot, thus you will have all the heat that you will need. Can I connect a 120-volt cable on 240 volts? No, the cable will burn.What do I do if the cable breaks? If the cable is broken before the floor covering is applied, it can be repaired easily, we have a repair kit.
If the cable breaks after the floor covering is applied, there are specialists that can localize the break and repair it. The floor cover protects the cable, it is in concrete, and it only serves to heat, thus there is no reason for the cable to break. Can I use my own Thermostat? Yes provided it has a GFCI circuit (ground fold circuit interrupt) and can detect as well as control the temperature of the floor. Where can it be installed?Can be installed in a bathroom, kitchen, basement, or anywhere we want to be comfortable. What surfaces can it be installed on? It can be installed on plywood, backer board, concrete or existing ceramic vinyl tiles or granite. Tips on selecting the appropriate size heating system. You will never need the same size system as the surface area of your floor covering, which is why you must read the following tips carefully.
Determine if you want your system to be used as a primary source of heating, or as a secondary source of heating, for comfort. If you want your system as your primary source of heat, you will need the cable to be installed at 3 (76 mm) spacing. If it's for comfort, as a secondary heat source, then you can install your cable at 4 (102 mm) spacing. Make sure you that you take into consideration that the cable must be at least 3 (76 mm) away from all walls and fixed objects e.Cabinets, vanities and shower stalls. Never install the cable under any fixed object, as excessive heat could build up causing damage to the heating wires and possibly even a fire. Minimum spacing away from any plumbing drains should be 6" (152 mm), and 8" (203 mm) away from any heat source e. Baseboards, heating vents and fireplaces.
Always plan for excess cable by locating buffer zones. Buffer zones are areas of the room where heating can me modified without compromising the total comfort of the room, such as beside toilets and adjacent door openings. Never cut your heating cable, as this will change the resistance of the heating wires and could cause an electrical fire.
Check with your electrician if the voltage supplied to the room is 120V or 240V; the voltage of system selected must the same.
