Radiant floor heating refers to the use of gadgets which are warmed by electricity to heat floors below the tiles. This is also referred to a floor warming mat. The top layer of this contraption is a plastic mat with heat conducting properties. Below the plastic mat you would find a circuit of coils which provide the heating effect when electricity is passed through them. There is a slight difference between these coils and the coils you find in electric stoves or space heaters. The coils in a floor warming mat are usually resistance wires. The most common metals used to make these coils are copper or nichrome (nickel-chromium alloy). Because the electricity charges can be quite high, most people prefer to install such mats in specific rooms where the warming is more needed. Very rarely is the full house laid with this king of floor heating mat. You might find several products in the market, but let us take a look at one of the bestsellers in this category, the Laticrete floor warming mat.
The installation is quite easy because of the self-adhesive mesh backing. To make things even more easy, you get an easy-to-use software tool. This will help you in planning your layout when you plan to install the UL approved Laticrete floor warming tool. The heating element has a double intertwined mesh construction to ensure uniform distribution of heat across the mat. One of the best advantages of the Laticrete floor warming mat is its versatility. You can use it under a variety of finished floor coverings. Some of the suitable substrates with which you can use the Laticrete floor heat mat are concrete, mortar beds, exterior glue plywood, ceramic tiles and stone, cement terrazzo, cement backer board etc.
There are certain precautions that need to be taken during installation. Firstly, the electrical connections for the mat must be made by a licensed electrician. In case that is not done, and there is some issue later, the 25 year tile and stone system warranty and the lifetime tile and stone system warranties would be null and void. The system shouldn’t be switched on till a period of at least 72 hours has passed after the installation of tile and grout. In case the ambient temperatures are low, then you must protect the finished work from traffic till it gets fully cured. Finally, the heating elements should not be stapled directly.
