120V Electric Floor Heating Cable System Length and Coverage. 240V Electric Floor Heating Cable System Length and Coverage. Question #1: How do electric floor-warming/radiant heating systems work? Electric floor-warming systems are buried directly below the flooring surface and are then connected electrically to a GFCI protected power source.
110 Volt lines are most commonly used, but 220 Volt lines can be utilized for some larger applications. All floor-warming mats are manufactured to International Standards including UL and CSA. The heating cables are sheathed (ground protected) and MUST BE CONNECTED to a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupt) to protect against fire hazards, electric shock, etc.
In addition, it is strongly recommended that ALL materials be connected through a DEDICATED CIRCUIT. All electrical connections and controls should be made by a qualified electrician in accordance with the all applicable National Electrical Codes, and the Local Electrical Codes. Question #2: How do I figure out what areas to heat? Answer: The heat produced by the Resistance Wiring must be placed in OPEN areas where the heat will be allowed to dissipate into the air.It is extremely important not to trap the heat. Heatign wire should never be placed under items that will be fixed to or sit flush with the floor surface. In most installations approximately 85-90% of the actual open floor space will be covered in order to heat all of the walkways and key areas in the room. Small margins of unheated space are usually left along the walls. Therefore, it is usually most accurate to calculate the Total Open Floor Space and then multiply that number by. This will be an approximation of the Total number of Square Feet that will be covered by materials. Should you need any help with sizing or layout, please feel free to send us your drawing. Be sure to include details such as desired thermostat location, finished flooring type, etc.
Question 3: Which thermostat do I need? Installation of HeatTech electric floor heating system requires a class "A" GFCI to be present. First option is to have a circuit breaker with built-in GFCI. TH115-AF-120S and TH115-AF-240S are non-GFCI (regular) models and are for use with 120V and 240V radiant floor heating systems respectively.
TH115-AF-GA is a dual voltage (120/240V) thermostat with built-in 5mA GFCI and works for systems with either 120V or 240V.
