Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoJo Easy to use heated floor thermostat!
This thermostat is particularly nice because you can program 4 different events per day so it's great to get up in the morning and have the floor already heated. You can also program it at the minimum temperature for vacations, etc... (temperature range is 41 degrees to 104 degrees Fahrenheit but can also be programmed in Celsius.)
It has a modern look and is able to accommodate up to 15 amps of heating matting. You must have a dedicated 20 amp circuit for the thermostat so I would recommend hiring an electrician for the installation. This has an integrated GFCI so a separate one is not needed when installing. Programming this thermostat is very self explanatory when you turn on the panel for the first time. The quick guide included in the box is VERY easy to follow with suggestions for programming your daily schedule.
I used this thermostat with my Quiet Warmth Radiant Heat Film for FLOATING floors. See pictures. This unit is a little pricy but well worth the money for a quality product which has so many programming features!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HDKevin A must have for a heated floor
If you have a heated floor this thermostat is a no brainer. Instead of an on/off switch or a timer, this thermostat will give you so much versatility.
The 2 biggest advantages of this are energy efficiency and convenience
The thermostat will keep a more consistent heat as well and prevent wasted energy when you are away
With numerous program options, you're able to set the floor heat to be on when you enter the shower in the morning.
I used this in a basement bathroom application directly over a concrete floor and it really takes the chill out of the floor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jonjon1 Convenient and Saves Energy
Easy to follow CD instructions. We will be doing a remodel this winter and will use this thermostat with our radiant heat floor mat installation. I chose this thermostat because of the timer option settings and more importantly the built-in ground fault circuit interrupter that cuts power in the event of a power surge because we experienced a severe power surge several years ago that caused a fire. I had no idea that this could happen and now look at every electrical application with this in mind. Has 7-days of scheduling with 4 programming periods per day to save energy and to create warmth only when you need it. A little pricey but worth it.

Very nice looking thermostat for use with raidiant heat film for floating wood or tile floors. Nice display, good feel,on the control buttons. The thermostat probe wire is a little thick and the underlayment will need to be slotted to fit properly if your using this with the manufactures film mat. Fits into a single box in accordance with floor mat requirements. Max load is 15 amps at 1800 watts. Built in GFCI 4 event timer

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gmjawx Worth the Investment
This programmable thermostat is well worth the investment. You will be much happier with this unit as opposed to a standard on/off switch or even a timer. This unit allows you to program it for every day of the week, with the added option to customize it even further, with four programming periods per day. This will not only provide you added convenience, but it will be much more efficient as well. It is really nice in the morning to roll out of bed and step onto a nice warm tile floor instead of what almost felt like freezing cold tile before you installed your heated flooring system and thermostat. You will no longer have get up early to turn the heated floor on and sit around and wait around for it to get warm.
This unit has a nice large screen, which makes programming as well as reading the display all that much easier. The thermostat is fairly easy to install, however the instructions could be a little more detailed. Finally, it has a built in GFCI, which will protect you as well as the heated floor mat in case of a power surge or if it somehow comes in contact with water.
This is a great product and is a must have. This thermostat will help you appreciate your heated floor even more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Abuilder Easy to use, completely adjustable
I picked this up to replace a hard to use unit that came with my guest bathroom’s heated floors. Adjusting the old one when our schedule changed (i.e. family over for Christmas, mother in law visiting etc) was a bear. The new unit is simply faboo and here’s why:
• Easy to use – clear intuitive display with lots of options
• Clear display – Easy to see current temp, set temp, time, if floor is actively heating etc
• Easy install – Installation took less than 10 minutes and it doesn't sit as deep as my last controller so things didn't feel crammed getting it back into the wall.
• Safety features - Built in GFCI (in case water finds electricity) and child lock (toddler proof!)
• Easy Scheduling – Lets you set a weekday/weekend schedule or even a schedule for each day of the week. Perfect for us since the wife stays home 2 days a week to be with our toddler.
• Extra adjustments – I almost gave 2 stars since it was off by 10 degrees from the actual temp. However, you can adjust the temperature readout by up to 18 degrees Fahrenheit (ours was off by 10 degrees from the get go)
Only thing that needs more attention is the instructions. It’s bare bones. Apparently others got a mini-cd to help out, but my box didn’t have one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alleymca Great Heated Underlayment Thermostat!
The MP Global Products heated underrlayment electronic programmable thermostat with floor sensor is a very well conceived and functional product. The thermostat has a built in ground fault circuit interrupter and can be used at 120V or 240 V. It is designed to flush mount in a wall socket.The unit has a 4-event programmable timer, and the temperature control can be switched between degrees Celcius and Fahrenheit. It keeps the temperature at a steady level and maintains a minimum temperature for long absences. The safety extra low voltage makes the thermostat safe and energy star rated. Even though the instructions are very thorough, I recommend installation by a qualified electrician. A highly recommended, high quality product..
