Check the Resistance Readings of your Electric Floor Heating System

If you purchased a Digital Multi-meter from Warmup you will have 2 connectors as shown below. Please make sure that the contacts that will be plugged into the multi-meter are properly exposed as illustrated below. It is possible that you may have to remove some of the sheathing from the connector ends to expose them enough to make the needed contact with the multi-meter in order to receive accurate readings.

Why is my Floor not Reaching Target Temperature?

If your heating system was installed on a concrete slab or over an unheated space and insulation boards were not used, it is possible that the heat loss into the subfloor will cause your floors to heat up more slowly and possibly not reach the target temperature. Click “Read More” for details.

Why does my thermostat read a percentage?

When applied, you will select a number and this percentage represents the number of minutes the heat will be on out of every 10 minute cycle. For example, if you select 60%, the heat will be on for 6 minutes, followed by 4 minutes of the system being off. Then, after the 4 minutes, it will activate again for 6 and so on. This will continue until your programmed heating period ends or until you manually turn off the heat.

What are the electrical requirements for my Warmup system?

Please verify that the circuit can handle the amount of amperage your heating system requires. Your thermostat can only handle up to 15 amps so if you are connecting multiple heaters to one thermostat location, you may need to use a relay and a larger breaker. Your or your electrician can find out the amperage rating of your specific floor heating system in installation manual or printed on the box. Note: Just because the Warmup thermostats are dual voltage, this does not mean you can supply any voltage to your heating system. You must supply the voltage supplied to the voltage of your specific heater.
