STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION




Largest single Elektra mat is 133 s. f.  but more than one mat can be used to cover more floor. Max. coverage is limited by total Wattage one electrical circuit dedicated to heating one floor can safely handle. 220-240V mats can cover twice of what 120V mats can.  Mats rated 9Watts/sq.ft. are enough for comfortably warm floors for most applications. 14Watts/sq.ft. can make the floor the only heat in the room or are better for concrete slab. Heating results may vary and will depend on the application, climate, and room and floor insulation.

Measure. Do not guess. This is critical!

Don't order too much! Radiant floor heating is only meant for open 'walkable' floor area. Not under cabinets, vanities, shower stalls, toilets, kitchen islands etc. Mats cannot overlap! Mats cannot be cut off to be made smaller, cutting is only meant to change the shape, to make the mat to fit the open floor perimeter. It is better to get a bit smaller mat than the one too big.

Following symbols represent 4 basic models of floor heating products powered by way of either 110-120V or 230-240V:

 

two wires (very slim)        or         one wire (slim mat)
