We offer full features yet easy to program thermostats. The Nuheat thermostats have a 3 ½” color touchscreen display with 7-day programmability and a built-in GFCI.

Products

There are many different kinds of electric floor warming products and installation methods available.  We only use quality products and recommend installation methods that meet or exceed industry standards.  

There are two main types of electric radiant heating systems:

  • Mats – The mats are pre-engineered and do not require any on-site adjustments. They are available in both standard and custom options. We recommend custom mats as they provide 100% coverage - without any cold spots.

  • Cables – Cables are available in standard lengths and the layout is configured on-site by the contractor.

Installation Methods

Mats – The mats are only 1/8” thick and are embedded into acrylic modified thinset directly over the prepared subfloor.
In wet locations, such as showers, the mats are installed over the water-proof membrane using acrylic modified thinset.
