Always refer to the full installation manual for installation instructions. The steps below are an overview only.
Make sure the sub-floor is clean then coat the floor with primer (included in the installation kit). Warmup primer gives a dust free tacky base for the tape. It also promotes the adhesion of tile adhesive. (primer should not be used on a water proof surface)
Lay out the wire and tape it into position. The heating element is laid out at spacing of 2 - 4 inches and secured to the floor with tape (included within the heating kit).
Connect the thermostat. Test the heater and connect the Warmup DUALUDG Thermostat.
Apply adhesive over wire and tile the floor. Tile with normal flexible tile adhesive and grout.
- The heater can be installed without the need for specialist tools or expertise (in accordance with local building code). It is important, however, that the Warmup Thermostat be connected by a qualified electrician. The underfloor heater is suitable for wooden or concrete tile sub-floors overboarded by cement backer board or ¾” plywood (insulated tile backer board is recommended for concrete sub-floors).
- The radiant heater is so thin, it is absorbed into the thickness of tile adhesive without raising your floor level. All that remains visible is the discreet Warmup Thermostat. Warmup Radiant Heating can be fitted into any shape or size of room and has the flexibility to be installed around permanent fixtures such as tubs, vanity units etc.
