Wiring

Thermostat Location
  • The Warmup Thermostat (sold separately) can be installed within the same room as the heater, outside the room, or in a cupboard.
  • Our thermostats have the option to monitor your heating by floor or air temp. In order to ensure the efficient running of the system within bathrooms, the controls should be located at least 36 inches away from shower openings or basin back splash area to minimize the possibility of exposure to water.
Electrical Installation
  • All electrical work should be undertaken by a qualified electrician in accordance with local building and electrical codes and the National Electrical Code (NEC), especially article 424, Part J of the NEC, ANSI/NFPA 70.
  • We recommend that Warmup be the only load on the electrical circuit supplying power to the heaters.
  • They must always be installed within current NEC and local codes. Some local codes require separate conduit for the low and high voltage wires. If so, you may require conduit for the cold lead wires that supply power to the system and separate conduit for the thermostat sensor wire.
  • It is possible to run one or more heaters from an existing circuit but you should consult with an electrician to determine whether or not the circuit can handle the load and whether local codes allow for this. If required by local code the wiring to the thermostat should be protected by a plastic conduit.
Electrical Considerations for 120 & 240VAC Systems
  • If the area to be heated requires an amperage exceeding your thermostats maximum load then you can either install multiple thermostats, using a master thermostat & relay configuration or install a Warmup® 240V system (Note: the 240V system runs at a higher voltage but lower amperage, eliminating the need for a relay).
Floor Probe
  • Fit the system's temperature-sensing floor probe in the center of two runs of the Warmup heating wire, approximately 12" from the wall. This ensures that the tip of the sensor receives a representative reading. You may extend the probe wire up to 150 feet using a wire of similar grade.
