If this product is installed on a concrete slab in a basement is a thermal barrier apllication recommended before?

Asked by: Gfr3sh
The install instructions suggest the thermal barrier. Ours was installed over subflooring. The membrane does form a nice barrier however.

should hardy backer board be used or can it go down right over wood sub flooring? Is the thinset layer required under the membrane?
Asked by: dredman5
For most substrates, a premium modified thinset is suggested. You can use plywood or exterior grade OSB substrate and any surface should be sound, dry and free of dust and debris, and meet or exceed any recommendations from the tile manufacturer.

I asked the question, "How wide is the membrane", and received an answer of 8", but I am quite certain this is incorrect for the value I am looking for. Most uncoupling membrane rolls and sheets are around 39" wide and it would be extremely inefficient if this one was only 8" wide. I would have to check the specs again but I believe the membrane is about 5/16" thick and the length varies based on the square footage of your product, so the only dimension left is the product width. Could you please review this and respond back with the correct width? Based on the pictures and the average width of similar products, it should be close to 39". Thanks!
Asked by: Diesel
The roles I used were I believe 40" in width and came in 10ft long roles - covers 40 sqft. And, you're correct at a depth of around a 1/4" thick which easily accommodates the heating wire and still have a little room to accept mortar. I believe the membrane does come in longer rolls but the width is uniform 40"from all the material we used.

I wish the whole system was a bit more economical, although it is by a significant amount the most economical such system there is for this specific application. The HeatMatrix uncoupling membrabe is one of the key components of the SunTouch floor warming system designed to heat kitchens floors, bathroom floors and other living areas. SunTouch makes multiple versions of systems for heating floors, but this is best for use on plywood or OSB indoor subfloors because it includes a vapor management system that blocks mold and mildew growth in your subfloor. I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of use of the system. The main bar to DIY use is the fact that it's best to run this from a dedicated circuit, like all such systems. Once that electrical work has been done, however, unlike most such systems, there is nothing stopping this being used by a reasonably competent DIYer with some floor tile experience to lay a heated subfloor and add thousands of dollars of value to her or his property. One of the things I would counsel would be to avoid rubber-tipped or plastic specialty trowels in spreading the mortar for this application. I had very good results cutting down an inexpensive wood trowel to lay down skim coats on the the membrane itself, and I made all grooves with a regular notched trowel away from the membrane on the subfloor and the backs of the tile. I used 12-inch tile and went with a deep-square-notched 1/4 in. x 3/8 in. x 1/4 in. trowel for my mortar application. I (and many installers) typically do the same thing when applying mortar to thickly-laid liquid waterproofing compounds as well. You could theoretically also cut notches into a wood trowel, but I've never tried that. For the DIYer using this system, it's critically important to watch as many installation videos from as many sources as you want, but to pay particularly close attention to the official video available on the SubTouch site. Don't worry if you're using more mortar than the video details, although you should not use less. Good luck and don't do anything silly, like cutting the wire to fit or crossing it over itself to save space.

I put this in a basement bathroom that was at the bottom of the stairs so that the bathroom and the "landing" area when the stairs open to the basement would all be heated. The thermostat is still placed in the bathroom and that seems to work well. The Membrane is SUPER easy to use, it rolls out and having the groves to place the heat wiring into keeps everything tidy. Just follow the directions and make sure you layout your wiring correctly. It took me extra time because I measured wrong the first time and had to pull the wire up to re-route. I also used basement "subfloor" squares. I think you can put it right on concrete, but I wanted the "insulation" and to make sure under floor moisture wasn't a problem.

The important first step is to read the instructions a number of times, and highlight particular notes for your application. It took time and patience, but the finished results are wonderful. I went with wires spread at 3 inches apart with the mats placed on a base of thin set mortar over 3/4 inch plywood. I have laminate flooring over the heated mats. When it's all said and done, it was worth every moment. It is very versatile especially when cutting the mats for areas around vanities and so on. You will smile each time you step onto the floor. There is nothing better than warm feet, and although this took time for the install, I could not imagine doing it any other way or with any other product.

The membrane works with the heater wire that gets laid into it at specific spacing depending on the room size. It is all controlled by a thermostat so you have complete control over the comfort levels. There is nothing better than stepping onto a heated floor. After a shower it feels great too. And an added bonus is the heat will rise into the room too. It is easy to cut and shape and install per the easy instruction. It does need a source of power to run at 120V AC for the control. It will raise the floor about 0.25 inches and we made adjustments during our bathroom remodel which was not a big deal. We are enjoying the luxury of a heated floor especially in this really cold weather it is awesome!

Got this as part of the larger HeatMatrix floor heating system (this membrane, a thermostat and miscellaneous installation components). The directions were thorough and installation was pretty easy as long as you take your time and follow the directions. My wife loves it as it now helps keep our bathroom tiles warm during these cold MN winters. I would add that it's important to be careful with the membrane as you want to make sure that you don't damage it; otherwise it won't work - there is a tool included that lets you test it.

I've tried a few different types of floor heating systems, and this one is the best so far! I love that you can choose where to put your heating wire (others that had wires preinstalled wasted heating elements under vanities, etc..). This membrane holds the coated blue heating wire in place securely in many different desired configurations (see pics). I also really like the LOUD MOUTH tool that you can attach the heat wire lead lines onto (from the heating element wire package) which will alert you if there's a break in the wire as you insert it onto the membrane. This is fantastic because you never want to complete the job only to find out there's something wrong with the wiring! The Loud Mouth has light indicators and sounds a SUPER LOUD alarm at the time there's a break in power so you know exactly where the issue is! The Loud Mouth product comes with a 9v battery inside unit- you must remove sticker guard on battery and connect to device). It also comes with the mini screwdriver for attaching lead wires from heating element. (see pics) The SunTouch thermostat has a 7-day programmable setting, "vacation mode", floor sensing control, energy usage monitoring, and has home automation tie-in. The matching "beauty ring" around the thermostat is removable and paintable if desired. It also has multiple color display themes. The thermostat has a three year warranty, Dual voltage(120v/240v), has English/Spanish/French options, GFCI protection, 15 Amp (resistive) relay output and has a 15' long sensor. All in all, when this membrane is used with the associated heating wire, Loud Mouth alarm, and Thermostat, this product is superior and I would recommend this to anyone wanting a high quality, easy to install, reliable floor warming system!

Over the past years I've owned several houses that I've renovated or remodeled. I've installed radiant floor heat in each of them and now after installing the SunTouch product in two bathrooms feel that I can share pros/cons comparing each type that I've worked with. I rated the ease of installation at 3 stars because this type of radiant heat requires a membrane to be installed, heat wire woven throughout the membrane and a mortar spread over the top to embed the warming wire into the membrane. This process is difficult when installing in an existing bath because it will raise the height of the floor by 1/2"+ making it necessary to remove toilets and install longer bolts to reinstall and possibly require a raised transition to adjoining flooring. In our case, we chose to remove the toilet and vanity so that the area was one contiguous surface allowing future toilet/vanity replacement to be a nonissue. Also because we were laying new tile the mortar step served two purposes. After our experience in re-tiling two baths and installing the SunTouch product, I would say this is not well suited for weekend renovation projects. A nice feature of the SunTouch membrane is that you can thread the warming wire through the membrane in a design to heat the areas you want. But I can say once installed and flooring placed over the radiant heat, the resulting warmth of the floors was much better than my experience with carbon film radiant heat. The floor was quicker to warm up and seemed to last longer after being shut off. I should say I'm comparing radiant heat under ceramic tile and vinyl/laminate flooring. The warming heat does seem better. And time will tell whether SunTouch radiant heat is more economical over competitive products. The quality of the SunTouch product is top notched and if I were working with new construction or a gut remodel, this product would be my hands down choice. I liked working with the membrane and threading the warming wires which was easy and quick. I also didn't really mind the mortar mess because we were tiling the floor anyway. The thermostat is intuitive and easy to operate and once installed this is truly a once and done install. In the end I'm very happy with the SunTouch product.

Finally no more walking onto a frigid bathroom floor in the early morning during IL winters! I requested this item (which as part of the offer from the vendor included everything needed for the heated floor minus the ceramic floor tiles or grout that goes on top) to give my bathroom a more high-end feel. Before starting the installation, I unpacked everything and made sure I not only had everything I needed, but also checked the quality of the construction of each component so that I could make sure I didn't damage anything during install. I was pleased to find that all components were well made and showed no signs of defects or any wear prior to install. The only suggestion I could make to the manufacturer is to design the uncoupling mat so that the wire can also travel diagonally to accommodate those who may have walls that are not perpendicular to each other (didn't apply in my case).
