Different types of flooring have different heating limits. To ensure floor heating limits are not surpassed, a floor probe should be installed and wired to your thermostat. Generally speaking, a tile or concrete floor can be set to 104° while other types of flooring are typically limited to 86°. If you are unsure about the heating limits of your flooring, refer to your flooring manufacturer.

You may find it easier to alter advanced settings for your Terra thermostat via the MyHeating app or at my.warmup.com.
