The EHC heating cable should be installed in a flexible self-leveling compound or directly into the tile adhesive. It is important that the heating cable is completely covered.
Other Floor Surfaces (carpet, vinyl, engineered wood and laminate floor)
The EHC heating cable should be completely covered in a flexible self-leveling compound with the required floor surface applied once the compound is completely dry. Great care must be taken to ensure that fixing devices are not driven through the heating cable.
Where underlay is required, the lowest tog option is recommended. If there is any doubt about the suitability of any given floor surface for use withunderfloor heating, confirmation should be sought from the flooring supplier.
The objective is generally to cover as high a percentage of the free floor area as possible. The free floor area is defined as the floor area not occupied by permanent fixtures such as kitchen cabinets and shower trays. Use the table provided to select the correct cable.
For large rooms it is common practice to use more than one heating cable. In these circumstances there is a choice of subdividing the room into separate zones each controlled by its own thermostat or connecting the heating cables together electrically in parallel and using a single thermostat. When controlling more than one heating cable from a single thermostat it may be necessary to incorporate a contactor into the control circuit.
