Electric Heat Mat is very easy to install. Simply role it out ensuring that the main cable is beneath where you want the thermostat to be installed which is usually near the power point for access to mains power and for easy use.
We highly recommend a 10mm screed then be poured over the top. The screed will ensure you have a great heat conductor.
The positioning mesh can be cut as it is only there to make it easy to lay the heat trace wire which actually provides the heat. We supply a test kit with each mat so that if it is damaged during install you don’t find out after you’ve laid everything over the top of it. If the heat trace wire is cut then you will need to replace the product.
What does it cost to run?
While actual operating costs are going to vary greatly we can tell you that electric heat mat draws around 150W’s per square meter. The thermostat is also highly programmable with up to 6 segments for each day ensuring that it can be run as efficiently as possible.
