Start installing the wire once planning has been done.

  1. Make sure the floor is prepared ready for tiling
  2. Put down two layers of double sided adhesive tape at the start/ end
  3. Put some tape in middle of each run.
  4. Start to fit the wire pushing it into the tape.
  5. The tape will now hold the wire in place.
  6. Fit the sensor cable from the thermostat
  7. If you have any wires sticking up use the tape to hold down.
  8. We recommend you cover the wire with self leveling compound.
  9. Get a part P qualified electrician to make the connections.
  10. Now you lay your tiles using a good flexible adhesive.
  11. You need to wait two weeks before you turn your system on.
  12. This is to allow the adhesives to dry naturally.
  13. Enjoy your warm floor!
