Underfloor Heating Installation
1. Gather Tools and Materials:
·Heater element ·Self-adhesive mesh ·Floor Probe ·Installation monitor
2. Plan layout
Ensure the floor surface is clean and even.
If installing in a bathroom/wet area ensure that the waterproofing is completely dry. Mark heater layout on floor with chalk/pencil ensuring you leave enough heating to get back to the start spot.
3. Install the Underfloor Heating System
Starting from the floor beneath the thermostat location, unroll the heater until you reach the end of your first run. When you reach it, rip the tape and turn the heater to its new position.
Pull the wax paper backing off the tape, keeping it straight, stick it to the floor. Do the same with the tape on the other side of the heater, ensuring that the element is staight and under slight tension. Install floor probe for thermostat between elements or 25 mm from single tail.
4. Lay the mesh
Lay the green mesh, sticky side down, over the heater. Cut the mesh as necessary to cover the entire heating element.
5. After installation
Each heater needs its own KlimaGuard installation monitor and cannot be reused on different heaters.
The monitor must remain connected until tiling and grouting is complete. This is to ensure that you are alerted should any damage to the element occur during the tiling and grouting process.
Element wires should NEVER cross.
Try maintain a gap between elements of approximately 50mm otherwise the floor will not be evenly heated or possible hot spots can occur. Stay at least 100 mm off the walls and cabinets.
Take care not to cut the red heating element.
