Does every room with floor heat need its own thermostat?
Each Warmup thermostat acts as its own zone. To reduce energy usage and save money Warmup does recommend using a thermostat for each room you have floor heating in . There are additional reasons to consider having multiple thermostats such as floor heating limits, building regulations, and usage.
Reduce Energy Usage and Save Money

Floor Heating Limits
Rooms with differing floor types may or may not have different heating limits. For example, a tile bathroom floor can be set to heat to a higher target temperature than a floating floor type such as laminate. Since heating limits are controlled by Warmup thermostats, it is necessary, again, to have 1 per room for the ability to monitor and control the heating limits.
There are instances where building regulations have requirements or limitations that would establish further need for a thermostat per room. An example of this would be the inability to heat through a threshold (doorway) in some areas.
