Can I install this under sub-flooring? Heat rises doesn't it? There is a layer of tiles, thinset, then the sub-floor. If not, why not??
Asked by: Biff
I would recommend installing it on top of the sub-floor, with thin-set and tile on top. I would think that installing it under the sub-floor could reduce the efficiency significantly.

can i cut 1 mat in half ? i have 2 small bathrooms :)

i know i will need additional wiring, is it available
Asked by: Bitememetalarse
I would recommend against it. It's just a looped resistive heating wire, so in theory your could cut it, then connect additional wiring but you would have to be pretty careful how you did it so that it survives installation and doesn't pose a fire hazard.

Temperature

Hello, what is the maximum temperature that the floor can reach? Can it be automatically programmed?
Asked by: ehalfen
Your max temperature is going to vary depending on where and how it's installed. You need to buy a thermostat to control the temperature, both standard and programmable are available.

Thickness of the mat

How does the thickness of the mat affect leveling of the tile if I only want to do a section of the floor, in front of the vanity, for example?
Asked by: Mark
If you change the angle of the trowel so that you put a little less mortar on top of the mat, it shouldn't leave a noticeable difference in height. I ended up doing what you suggested in our bathroom, and it looks fine.

8 ft. x 30 in. 120V Radiant Floor Warming Mat is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Good Choice Have done this system in three separate bathrooms over the past ~8 years; I highly recommend it. It's not quite so simple as "unroll it and tack it down", but it is very do-able if you take your time and follow the directions. One tip: do *not* assume that the heat will radiate more than about 1" laterally from the coils. I found this out when I laid the system out in a way that did not heat the footprint of the cabinet/vanity that was going to go on top of the floor. What I didn't account for was the toe kick area at the bottom of the vanity and there was about a 2" wide area where your toes go that wasn't heated!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs careful installation In researching floor warming systems the SunTouch seemed like a great value and also seemed well thought out and manufactured. The videos and manuals are very thorough to help first timers like me. I carefully laid out my grid and followed the instructions to the letter. I cut grooves in the plywood sub-floor where the wires and sensors were located so they did not stick up so high. I was laying down 12x12x1/4 ceramic tiles using a standard mortar for adhesive. I also used a metal trowel with no issues. The main problem I had was getting the tiles to lay even where there was a transition from tiles laid over the grid to tiles laid over no grid. In fact, I had difficulty getting them to all rest at the same level because the grid and wire stands proud of the floor by roughly 1/8" and it seemed like the mortar followed this instead of everything coming out to a nominal thickness of 1/4" as set by the trowel. In retrospect I wish I had sunk tile spacers in the mortar to help assure that all the tiles would be even. Next time.....if there is a next time. The overall appearance is not as bad as I describe. So, this is a great system if you are meticulous in keeping the tiles all level and even. I have tested it out and the system works well. The control is easily set and adjusted. Nice to have a clock in the bathroom now. The real test will be this winter when it is cold out.

The peal off stickers helped a lot with holding the mat in place, though putting mortar over the mat is a little tricky. I checked the heater line several times during install with a multi-meter and it stayed right at 58 ohm (no issues with damaging the heating wire during install). Performs as advertised (along with the matching thermostat), it keeps our floor nice an warm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed! I just purchased this item and had it professionally installed by my tile setter during my master bath renovation. Everything was installed correctly and the unit does work - but just barely! Even with the thermostat set at 90, it has barely warmed the initial coating of thin set mortar after nearly 5 hours of operation. There is NO way it will warm the floor when temperatures are actually cold. Unfortunately, this is an item that cannot be replaced once installed. DO NOT waste your money on this product - spend a little more and get a quality floor warmer.

Matched up to my floor space so I did not have to make any changes to the mat. Easy to install. The wifey loves a warm tile floor during the fall and winter. Boo-ku brownie points.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a really neat product. We are "do-it-yourselfers" who, last fall, added a 6' x 11' mudroom in the back of our unheated garage. We bought the Sun Touch mats to heat the floor, hoping that they would also adequately heat the room itself. We installed two mats on an insulated sub floor, built over the cement slab of the garage. Not only does it heat the room very nicely, (in Michigan winters!), it actually throws quite a bit of extra heat into the adjoining family room. The directions were easy to understand and the installation was also easy. The heating wires seem pretty tough, just make sure you don't chop them with the edge of your trowel as you lay the thin-set. Also make sure that as you lay the ceramic tile, you keep checking the ohm resistance of the mats. Once it warms up, the floor gets nice and toasty. It's wonderful to kick off your snowy boots and just stand on it. :-)
