NOTES FROM OUR
Warm (floor) thank you from Ringwood, NJ
We love it but please note how Sparky adopted warm floor right away...
GREAT JOB. THANK YOU.
I am calling our friends who are building new house in Colorado to
tell them about these heated floors. FANTASTIC! Perfect timing!
New construction, new heated floors, how exciting!
What a good idea! No more cold marble. Thank you.

Ideal for an apartment with a view, plenty of glass & marble
Now it is completed the way it was always meant to be. Bang & Olufsen sound,
Manhattan skyline view and Elektra floors. Magnifico!

Six months later:
From cold concrete slab to comfortably warm floor in 3 days.
Description of the project:
First, the old, cold, and uneven floor tiles were smashed
and removed and the concrete slab was scraped as smooth as
possible. This was the most difficult part of the job.
Then, the floor was leveled with
'self-leveling underlayment' and left to set.
The next day the underfloor insulation and backerboard floor
boards were attached and topped-off with one 77 sq.ft. Elektra MG160/7.0/120V
1120 Watts in-floor radiant heating mat. The thermostat and the thermostat
floor temperature sensor were installed followed by thinset and new
Working day in and day out as the Flooring Department

Our upstairs bathroom was never heated 'since new'
80 years ago but now it finally will be.
The bathroom is not that big and we really did not
wanted any wall or space heaters, but liked the idea of some heat since it can
get really chilly. Now we will have all that's needed and better yet - exactly
Thank you for this simple and really ideal product. You should
Springfield Township, near McGuire AFB
I can't believe I did it - thanks to all your help! The mat is
down temporarily with tape. I will staple it permanently tomorrow. All four
wires ended up at the box where they are supposed to. I am forwarding pictures
of the backer-board, the channel I made for the conduit, and the mat in position
for permanent installation. Once I measured out the area, and figured out the
length of the heat mat, it went smoothly. Total "temporary" installation time
was only about one hour.
My next plan is to have all the electric hooked up and the mats
tested prior to laying the thinset and tiles.
Your product is just amazing!

Basement conversion to kids playroom, Montclair, NJ
The goal: to convert the unused,
unpleasant, unheated basement into an easy to clean, nice, and well lit place
for all the kids. Children, their play buddies, their wars and peace, all the
toys, crayons, and general cosmic chaos otherwise known as a happy mess kids
love to thrive in.
To top it off: the closed circuit camera
connected to the monitor right above our kitchen countertop. Homeland Security
can have it - so can we.
Inexpensive perfect floor, resistant to
spills, crayons, water paints and the 'genius' of 6 & 7 years olds with
unlimited time to explore things.
Instead of: baseboard heater, space
heater (no way!), extending/opening the existing ducts: warm floor.
'Ideal Heating' offered the right answer
and good product.

South Orange, NJ: BASEMENT CONVERSION
Our first problem there 'HOW TO HEAT THESE 3 NEW ROOMS' is solved! We wanted
radiant heat and we have radiant heat. But with no water tubes and no new
boiler! Just cable with the thermostat - that's the whole complete system!
Much better than expected and much cheaper too! JUST GREAT!
Brooklyn / NYC / ELEKTRA cable in Master Bath
THIS IS ONE VERY COOL BUT AT THE SAME TIME NICELY
$3000 cheaper than the hydronic system for this bathroom
with no compromise in quality. We are impressed with the standard 10
year warranty and 3 hours installation (shown on the pictures). We liked
the installation but we love the way it makes the floor warm! Coincidently this
is the only electric product we have in our new house with this much standard
manufacturer warranty and nobody bothering us with "buy our great
extended warranty" gimmick pushed nowadays by everybody and their uncle in
the appliance business so you end up with the $405 bill for $299.99

After careful research into various
options - here we are: 730 square ft. in 2 zones controlled by 2 thermostats.
All completed in 8 hours.

Ready for the metal lath (in areas not
covered by mats), then thinset + tiles.
90% cheaper than hydronic systems would
have cost - not to mention the time saved.
Expected service: 20-30 years
of continuous use = lifetime in reality.
Floor elevation due to mats: just 1/8"+!!
PERFECT!!LOOKING FORWARD TO THE UNIQUE EFFECT OF
RADIANT FLOOR HEATING DURING COLDER WEATHER BECAUSE THE HOUSE HAS GREAT LOOKING
HIGH CEILINGS GIVING A SPACIOUS FEEL BUT FAR FROM IDEAL FEATURE FOR STANDARD

ADDING THIS RADIANT FLOOR HEATING CREATES
A TRUE HYBRID HEATING SYSTEM AND IN FACT IS AN IMPORTANT UPRADE TO THE EXISTING
HEATING SYSTEM. VERY IMPRESSIVE!

Timeline of the installation:
Installing the flex conduit before drywall is installed.
Floor measured one more time to make sure that 28 s.f. mat will fit well. We
were told that it is better to have smaller mat then one little too large.
Unrolling the mat. Few cuts and turns.
Return wire brought back to the thermostat box on the wall.
Thermostat floor temperature sensor installed in the conduit.
Mat (mesh) stapled to the sub-floor.
Mat's resistance checked with the meter: 38.9 Ohms between blue and
Cold (white) power wires from the mat connected to the thermostat along with
power "hot", "neutral" and floor sensor.
Floor ready for the mud job and tiles.
It was really easy and pleasure to work with. Looking forward to the warm
We always knew that radiant floor heating in our new house was a
must. Perhaps not for primary heat, but for the mere comfort and for the
avoidance of cold tiles. After doing some extensive research, the most we could
find were tube/water based hydronic PEX radiant floor systems. We were perfectly
okay with this, but just as our new house in the making approached its finishing
stage...we ran into a small problem. Our budget for our long planned
hydronic PEX radiant heating system (which, at this point, we calculated that it
would cost us about $10K) was beginning to find its way on the list of
project budget cuts.
Thankfully, we stumbled across ELEKTRA, and thier professional installers
helped us accomplish our warm-floor project at a fraction of the cost! In
addition to the low price, we recieved a warranty 5 times longer than what other
companies were offering. Our warm floor was up and running in our bathrooms,
front and back entrances, the kitchen, and the laundry room the very same
day ELEKTRA arrived!
Thanks for everything ELEKTRA!
Greetings and THANK YOU from New London, CT
We ordered 2 heating mats for 195 s.f. coverage of the kitchen
& dining room floors and one programmable GFCI thermostat with floor
As promised here is the description of what happened since we received the
Both mats were 20" wide. One was almost 60 ft. long to cover first 100
s.f. The other was 52 ft long to cover remaining 88+ s.f.
First the bigger one then the smaller mat were carefully and evenly
spread on the floor in less than 2 HOURS!
We played two small installation tricks:
1.While the first mat was being installed, we left some room by the wall
for the second mat. Because of this we did not have to extend any
wires from the second mat to reach the thermostat box.
2. The first mat was "started" right by the wall where the
thermostat was to be located even though we did not cared about this corner
being or not being heated. This way the sensor from the thermostat was 2" away
from the heating element but only 2-3" into the floor - measured from the
wall. Because of this, we were able to installed it in the flex
conduit included in the package - just like suggested in the manual. You can see
this on the right side of the first picture.
Once we were satisfied with the layout - the electric stapler was used
to staple the mats to the old subfloor.
"Cold" white connecting cords were run up the wall to the single
gang box on the wall where the thermostat box was installed and we were
ready to tile next morning.
SO SIMPLE and SO GOOD!
I wish all of the building products - not only sophisticated
models like these floor and tile heaters - had this simple installation
I am so happy that I caught this product just in time before new floor tiles

Now - as the 3rd picture shows - it only needs the electrician to
connect the thermostat and the new owners to enjoy.

Sunroom heating cable installation, Denver, CO
Radiant floor heating in 5 hours? Our contractor could not belive it.
Well, he was ALMOST right.
It was actually 7.
Thank you for all your help. It works great! Mike - our contractor will be
calling you about installers pricing.
Many thanks from windy and cold Chicago
Installation took less than 2 hours including electrical
hookup. The floor was ready in 1 day without grouting and 3 days later grouted
and cozy warm. WHAT A SIMPLE AND GREAT PRODUCT! Thank you. John Bennedict,

Hi. As promised, here are the pictures of my radiant floor
The pictures illustrate the following...
Mat being laid out in front of shower, lavatory, and water closet. Row on
left radiates from thermostat, row on right is the return (two sided install).
The layout took approximately 15 minutes.
Picture of red fish line used to pull temperature sensor and heating cables
into thermostat outlet box. (Note notch in base of wall and GFCI receptacle to
additionally protect the circuit)
Finished tile floor ready to be warmed as soon as the weather gets
Overall the installation went without a hitch. The only thing I
believe that can make the installation a little easier would be some further
clarification on the exact location of the temperature sensor, perhaps some info
on how to notch out the wonderboard so the cables will lay flat (some DIY may
not think of this), as well as some information on how to measure the resistance
of the mats to ensure that you never cut the mat during installation. The only
step that I don't have a picture for is the one where I covered the entire
floor, mat and all with self leveling cement. This step was absolutely crucial
due to the small nature of my tile 1x2".
Trying to level each tile with all the thinset required to
cover the mats and cables would have been a messy nightmare. I would therfore
definately advise your clients to use the self leveling concrete for anything
smaler than 6 x6 tile.
Thanks again for all your help. I hope you can put these
pictures and text to use in your website. I will definately refer my friends to
you in the future. I have a feeling they will be drooling over my heated
I wasn't really sure if I wanted warm floors, because it all seemed so
complicated: How wrong I was.
Our flooring contractor was to begin tiling the kitchen floor on Tuesday
morning. Monday afternoon, we decided that we wanted warm floors. To make a long
story short, everything was ready to be tiled by Monday evening. Mind you, I'm
talking about 200 square feet of floor heating mats! Despite it adding 20% to
the total floor cost, it's well worth it.
We're now putting up our house for sale, and having an
advertisement 'with radiant floor heating' makes it stand out from the
Thank you Ideal!

The ELEKTRA cable contractor was very punctual. He did one bathroom for us
just like agreed and showed us how to install the cable in the kitchen. We did
the kitchen floor in 3 hours! Mike, our electrician checked out both jobs and I
feel like we too, are experts now. My husband wants his shop done the same
way and when time comes for finishing the beasement. It will get done the same
Great product. Thanks a bunch.
Stamp concrete heated driveway, Lakewood, NJ
When I saw how wonderful stamp concrete is and how closely it resembles
the beauty of natural stone, I had to have it done that way. The only problem
was that concrete hates salt and snowplows. We don't like the snow on our
driveways and walkways, so... one thing let to another and VOILA! It is all

UNION, NJ - THANK YOU FOR THIS SIMPLE IDEA!
We never belived that after one short hour, we could have a warm floor,
ready to be tiled. ELEKTRA made it possible with their radiant floor heating
systems. Not only do we have comfortable floors, but the floor heating also
added value to our kitchen, and our home.
