Installation Procedure

The underlaminate aluminium heating blankets are placed directly under the laminate floor, above the underlay (combilay). The floor sensor supplied with the  thermostat must be placed under the heating panel ± 600 mm towards the inside of the unit. The floor sensor works in conjunction with the electronic thermostat and ensures a maximum floor
temperature of 27° C

Power saving tips for the winter

Choose a correctly designed heating system for a start.This will ensure a functional and economical heating system.

Don’t compromise on the wattage per squire metre, we recommend a 1000w per 12-14m2 area.

Always run the heating system on the lowest possible running temperature.(14 – 18 degrees celcius).

The positioning of the thermostats are important. Under carpet heating system should only be used when needed,its not necessary to run throughout the day. 

Don’t cover the heating system with loose rugs, over the floor medium(loose rug on top of tiles).

The idea of the heating system ,is to create a comfortable, living ambient temperature,where you only need to get rid off the “winter chill ” on the floor.
