Customer Reviews

Go for it!...But just be prepared for a few complications!OK...so there is much to like about this thing and a few things that are puzzlements. .First, the good. It is installed and works wonderfully in our newly renovated tiny little master bath. The installation process is pretty straight forward, once you have the floor appropriately prepped. The first challenge is figuring out how to trim the fiberglass mat to allow it to fold, flip, and turn to cover the area you want heated, while leaving the lead wires at the best spot for feeding to your thermostat, but as noted by other reviewers, a little creative patterning will work it out. The next problem is when you skim-coat the same mat in preparation for the actual tiling, you have to understand that you are essentially going to be tiling an uneven floor because even if you mix the mortar extra runny, you will end up with two different heights. I addressed this with either normally buttered tile in the heated areas or I buttered the crap out of the tiles being laid on the unheated areas which were below the height of the skim-coated sections. Used a 2 x 4 with a three foot level to verify consistent floor/tile height and yeah, I did have to pull up a tile from time to time and slather on a bunch more mortar but this was not my first tiling job so I was not too concerned with the practical issues...Ended up looking great and worked fine. My biggest gripe is the thermostat. The instructions encourage you to place the t-stat outside the bathroom, which makes sense but I suspect that unless you are involved in totally new construction, rather then renovation of a single bath, the t-stat design will make you crazy because it is big enough to require a 4 x 4 Jbox but a single center decora plate. Ever try to find what is essentially a double gang plate with a single centered decora opening? Don't spend much time looking because you never will. You can find new work solutions but if, like me, you want to put the t-stat outside a renovated bathroom without getting into drywall repair, paint etc on the other side of the wall, then that's a problem. I finally found Kyle Switch Plates on the interweb, bought one that came close, then Dremeled out a large enough opening for the decora guts of the t-stat to fit. Looks kinda funky, as you can see, but all in all, I am happy with it. Warming Systems really should offer the exact solution...and btw, they might....I never bothered calling them! But even in spring, the heated floor is delightful and I will never live in a house without this feature again.5Really Solid and Well-MadeThis first part is just about receipt of the materials and overall evaluation. So far, so good. I am really impressed by the construction of the thermostat that comes with this package - it is incredibly heavy and well-designed; there is nothing cheap about it. Instructions are clear and straightforward, and the functions available on the thermostat seem to be optimal for most households out of the box. And if not, everything is customizable. I used this manufacturer many years ago when this stuff was new in another house, and it worked like a charm.The only differences now are that the mat has sticky tape to hold it in place and it is far more affordable, as you would expect for a maturing product. I also like the fact that overall consumption is about 1A, which means about 120Watts. That's pretty low for something that generates heat.I am expecting to have a really great experience installing and using this under tile - I'll be installing over a 1/2" concrete backer board in a mortar bed. I will return here and update this review after install.5great value, warm floor. I did a full gut and remodel of our small master bathroom that sits directly above our unheated garage (we live in Minnesota so its negative infinity outside 6 months of the year). so the floors are naturally ice cold.I've never installed floor heating before but I'm a generally handy guy. the instructions were straightforward and clear. the only thing I would add would be to hot glue the fabric to the cement board before spreading the mortar and laying the tile.the thermostat is programmable and sleek. my bathroom floor is nice and toasty. and you can't beat the price. 5Just wish I had ordered more. Didn't realize that ...Just wish I had ordered more. Didn't realize that it could be cut up a bit and moved around. I just did a strip down the middle of the floor hoping it would radiate enough to warm the tile around it - not so much... Cover your entire floor!4This worked perfect for me in my smaller bathroomThis worked perfect for me in my smaller bathroom. I ordered the 25 sqft size. I have a few observations:1. Order the exact size you need, and go short if anything. If you order 25 sq ft but needed 21 sq ft (my case), then you must run the extra wire around your floor. You cannot cut off the excess wire.2. Install wire side up, or matting side up? All of the wiring must be must be embedded in thinset mortar to conduct efficiently onto your tile, or whatever flooring you're using. I laid it mat side down, and wire side up because of this. If you lay the wire side down, then you would be smart to lay down thinset first, then the wire side down mat, then thinset over the top. IMHO, and with my electrical engineering background, this seemed like unnecessary work.I used a staple gun to secure the mat to the floor. For places where you have wire without the mat, I would not use staples. The metal is conductive and corrosive, but you also run the risk of damaging the wire. I just bent it into place without securing it, but you could use a glue gun or something along those lines.3. Hide the transition of heating wire to electrical wire within your flooring. There's a fat little transition that's a good 1/4" thick and maybe 1" long, that needs to be embedded in the floor. Do can't stick that part behind your baseboard moulding because it's attached to the hot wire on one end, which should be spaced at least 2" from your baseboards. I used a dremmel tool cut out part of my plywood flooring to make sure the tile lays flat in that area.4. Don't forget the temp sensor! I almost did. You space evenly between two parts of the heating wire.5. The thermostat provided requires a neutral wire from your house. If you're house was built before the 80's in the US, then you need a different thermostat. Or you would need to run a new set of wires all the way to your to your electrical box to get a neutral. Do not use the ground as a neutral; you run the risk of causing a fire down the line.Comments: Mine works flawlessly, and I love it. I highly recommend it.5A must for every bath! Ordered this mat for a bathroom remodel I was doing in my own home. I have never heard of the brand but I didnt want to spend 100s extra on suntouch or schlueter. When I received the kit it was packaged very nicely. It included everything listed and the quality of each item was much better than expected for the price I had paid. I didnt need the instructions because every radiant floor goes in basically the same way, a quick peek at them however and they looked very clear and full of pictures. I did not put it on it's own breaker because the bathroom circuit only powers 2 led lights. It's been about 2 months since completion and the heat works great! The thermo is fully customizable to temp and timing. Very easy to setup as well. I give it 5 stars all the way and highly recommend this product. Keep up the good work. 5Happy Feet make a Happy Heart! This unit is what I 've been waiting for! Although 15 square feet doesn't sound like a lot, with a little creative planning and cutting of the mat to which the heating wire is attached, you can provide heat to a surprising amount of floor. In my case, I snipped the mat in several places, allowing me to provide heat in front of two sinks four feet apart, and in front of the shower, another four feet away. That's a lot of luxurious heat underfoot, in the areas where you spend most of your time. The controller is a quality piece of electronics, and if you focus for a short time on the small instruction manual, it is not hard at all to create a schedule that it follows every morning according to your lifestyle....it's even smart enough to sense the temperature of the floor in the wee hours, and turn on the heating element in advance, to have a comfortable floor underfoot at the time you told it you wanted it.I'm very happy with the quality of this package, and proud that I attempted and succeeded in installing it myself!Patrick 5Great system if you install it right.Great system. Re-did the tile in our bathroom and put this underneath. The key to putting this down is to do it in two steps. First, put the mat down with a lite coat of mastic over it (just enough to cover the mat and level the remaining floor area) and let it dry overnight. Second, once the first coat is dry do a second coat of mastic with your tiles (two small coats makes it easy to level the tiles than one large coat). I've had issues in the past trying to do it with one large coat of mastic - tiles tend to sink after leveling them.5works as advertisedThe unit is easy to install but makes the tile install a bit more difficult as the floor will not be perfectly level anymore.The mat is not thick but will raise the tiles enough where it is noticeable if you don't use extra mortar where there is no heating mat. I am a avid diy'er and was able to install this with tile without too much difficulty. It's hot here no so I have to set the thermostat to 85-90 in order to feel the heat through the tiles. It only heats where the mat is and does not radiate out more than a couple inches at most with porcelain tiles so be sure to lay it exactly where you want heat.5Buy this if you want a great product that works flawlessly!This product is fantastic. It was the perfect addition to our bathroom remodel. I ordered enough to do a long strip in front of the vanity and in front of the toilet. It makes a world of difference. Install is not too difficult. I stapled and taped everything down (this is critical). Then I used 4 bags of self leveling cement to embed the wires and mesh into. Then tiled over that. It worked out perfectly. The controller was great too. It is easy to use and program and works flawlessly. Next time I remodel anything in my house, it is getting a heated floor from this company.5Love our Warm Tile Floor! We installed the electric radiant floor heating system under a new tile floor. We love it! It has been in for about 6 weeks and works beautifully. We installed it ourselves, following the directions that were with the flooring material. We have already purchased a second mat for another bathroom remodel and have confidently recommended the product to friends.Installation tip: Use a hot glue gun to secure the mat and wire to the cement or backer board in several places before you put down the thin set. That will keep the mat In place while you lay the tile. I also used it to secure the sensor in the right place so it would not move. 5Great product and cheaper than the rest!I purchased two of these warming mats about a year ago and installed them in January of 2012. It is recommended that a curing period of 1 month be observed for the thin set to dry completely so I did not get to use them much last year as we had a warm spring. As mentioned I bought two mats and did two bathrooms. I felt like I was taking a bit of a risk with no reviews on this product and limited information but they were cheaper than I could find the mat and thermostat anywhere else. The math may have changed by now but these were a bargain and I see the price remains the same now (nov-2012) as when I purchased them. I did do a lot of research before going this route and came to the conclusion that the real value in these kits is in the controller and in this case this is an absolutely great controller/thermostat. It is easy enough to set up and offers all the programmable options I wanted. Aube is a high quality brand even if they are not as well known in the mainstream as some others. I went with the mats because they worked well for my bathrooms but depending on design I would not hesitate to use the cable. The mat was well made and relatively easy to install. This was my 5-6 tile job and it does add a little difficulty to the job but nothing an experienced DIY'er can't handle. The biggest concern is getting the tile with the mat under it to sit at the same height as the tile without mat under it. I used thin set to set mine on top of backer board and just was conscious to use more thin set (different trowel) on the tiles without mat under it and it turned out fine. The other option is to use self leveling compound but that would have added more height to the floor and I wanted perfect transitions to the surrounding floors. I am capable of doing the electrical and did so but if you are not familiar with household wiring, GFCI's etc I would recommend this part be farmed out to someone who can. Just follow the directions locate the temperature sensor correctly and be careful of the wire as you work and you should be fine.This year I have been using them more and more as we get into the winter months and boy do I love these. They start giving noticeable heat to your feet in 15-30 minutes but should be left on for about an hour to get the full effect. I do not try to use them to warm the room so can't comment on that. With the controller it makes it easy to have the floor all warmed up for a morning shower without having to do a thing.To summarize:Great product, relatively simple install, awesome controller, mat works well to aid install, and the end result is simply fantastic. My bathrooms were always a little cool and getting out of the shower onto a warm floor while I shave or whatever is just great. There are a lot of options when it comes to a floor warming system but for my money I think Warming systems Inc had the best value I could find and a great product.I will be doing 4-5 more bathrooms this winter for family/friends and will be using this product again where a warm floor is wanted.5Happy FeetControlsThermostat has all the settings you d need to set it up and not have to adjust the temperature at night or when you leave the house which saves it hearing when not being used. I have one in my other bathroom which just has on or off and temp so this was a nice surprise.InstallSuper easy just put the mat and sensor in self leveling cement and ran the wires up in the wall to the thermostat with a power cable attached to a electrical outlet (even though it should be ran all the way from the breaker) to connect it you just put the load connections from the thermostat on the heating mat and the other 2 onto the electric.OverallCouldn t be happier, it heats the tiles quickly and evenly, you can t beat the feeling standing on them5Happy feet!Every morning I go into my new bathroom I think: "NICE"! And it is indeed! This is also a very good value - you get the mat, the sensor, and the thermostat.I installed this mat in my basement bathroom directly on the cement slab. Before installation measure the resistance and make sure it is within the range specified on the wire tag. Also, measure the sensor resistance and also make sure it is working properly. I installed one extra sensor Honeywell AC112-01 Electric Heat Floor Sensor just in case the first one dies out (imagine installing everything and having no heat because of a busted sensor).It is fairly easy to lay it down, and to cut the netting (not the red wire!) and arrange on the floor. However, the wire tends to lift at every corner when changing the direction. If you have wood subfloor you can staple the net, but in my case I was able to make it stay flat brushing it under and then over with the primer for the self-leveling concrete (my floor was very uneven). I put about 1/2" of self-leveling over, then I placed the sensor under the tile (not with the mat) as I wanted the temperature reading to be more realistic. It takes less than 30 minutes to get from 68F to 76F.They specify that you need conduit, so I had some old 12/3 wire with metallic jacket, I pulled the wires out and used the conduit from the floor (through the stud) to the connection box. From the connection box to the thermostat I used regular 14/2 wire (this thing is drawing 3A, uses 360Watt and it requires a GFCI breaker).The thermostat is not the best - you can program 4 different time periods per day but only 2 temperature setting (?!?!). Night time, with day time share the same temperature, as do morning and evening (you can use only 2 periods if needed: day and night). What if I am home the whole day and want some heat but not as low as during the night? What if I want a different temperature in the evening vs the morning? Tough luck. Well, this is the thermostat issue, not a heat mat issue, so I don't want to deduct any stars here even though I feel compelled to...I have it at 76 in the morning and evening, and I have an infrared thermometer and it is spot on. The thermostat cycles on and off pretty quietly, and not too often.I purchased the 30ft mat, but in all honesty the 20ft one would have been enough (only 240 watt). They mention that you should not install the mat too close to the wall or under fixtures anyway. When making the decision which one to get, think where your feet are touching the floor, and where would you actually appreciate the heat. For me it's too late to change now...All in all I am very happy with it. Would I purchase it again? Definitely. But If I had just a tad more money, I would look into the Ditra Heat. Just saying...5

I am capable of doing the electrical and did so but if you are not familiar with household wiring, GFCI's etc I would recommend this part be farmed out to someone who can. Just follow the directions locate the temperature sensor correctly and be careful of the wire as you work and you should be fine.This year I have been using them more and more as we get into the winter months and boy do I love these. They start giving noticeable heat to your feet in 15-30 minutes but should be left on for about an hour to get the full effect. I do not try to use them to warm the room so can't comment on that. With the controller it makes it easy to have the floor all warmed up for a morning shower without having to do a thing.To summarize:Great product, relatively simple install, awesome controller, mat works well to aid install, and the end result is simply fantastic. My bathrooms were always a little cool and getting out of the shower onto a warm floor while I shave or whatever is just great. There are a lot of options when it comes to a floor warming system but for my money I think Warming systems Inc had the best value I could find and a great product.I will be doing 4-5 more bathrooms this winter for family/friends and will be using this product again where a warm floor is wanted.5Happy FeetControlsThermostat has all the settings you d need to set it up and not have to adjust the temperature at night or when you leave the house which saves it hearing when not being used. I have one in my other bathroom which just has on or off and temp so this was a nice surprise.InstallSuper easy just put the mat and sensor in self leveling cement and ran the wires up in the wall to the thermostat with a power cable attached to a electrical outlet (even though it should be ran all the way from the breaker) to connect it you just put the load connections from the thermostat on the heating mat and the other 2 onto the electric.OverallCouldn t be happier, it heats the tiles quickly and evenly, you can t beat the feeling standing on them5Happy feet!Every morning I go into my new bathroom I think: "NICE"! And it is indeed! This is also a very good value - you get the mat, the sensor, and the thermostat.I installed this mat in my basement bathroom directly on the cement slab. Before installation measure the resistance and make sure it is within the range specified on the wire tag. Also, measure the sensor resistance and also make sure it is working properly. I installed one extra sensor Honeywell AC112-01 Electric Heat Floor Sensor just in case the first one dies out (imagine installing everything and having no heat because of a busted sensor).It is fairly easy to lay it down, and to cut the netting (not the red wire!) and arrange on the floor. However, the wire tends to lift at every corner when changing the direction. If you have wood subfloor you can staple the net, but in my case I was able to make it stay flat brushing it under and then over with the primer for the self-leveling concrete (my floor was very uneven). I put about 1/2" of self-leveling over, then I placed the sensor under the tile (not with the mat) as I wanted the temperature reading to be more realistic. It takes less than 30 minutes to get from 68F to 76F.They specify that you need conduit, so I had some old 12/3 wire with metallic jacket, I pulled the wires out and used the conduit from the floor (through the stud) to the connection box. From the connection box to the thermostat I used regular 14/2 wire (this thing is drawing 3A, uses 360Watt and it requires a GFCI breaker).The thermostat is not the best - you can program 4 different time periods per day but only 2 temperature setting (?!?!). Night time, with day time share the same temperature, as do morning and evening (you can use only 2 periods if needed: day and night). What if I am home the whole day and want some heat but not as low as during the night? What if I want a different temperature in the evening vs the morning? Tough luck. Well, this is the thermostat issue, not a heat mat issue, so I don't want to deduct any stars here even though I feel compelled to...I have it at 76 in the morning and evening, and I have an infrared thermometer and it is spot on. The thermostat cycles on and off pretty quietly, and not too often.I purchased the 30ft mat, but in all honesty the 20ft one would have been enough (only 240 watt). They mention that you should not install the mat too close to the wall or under fixtures anyway. When making the decision which one to get, think where your feet are touching the floor, and where would you actually appreciate the heat. For me it's too late to change now...All in all I am very happy with it. Would I purchase it again? Definitely. But If I had just a tad more money, I would look into the Ditra Heat. Just saying...5
