How to fit underfloor heating in large areas

ProWarm™ electric underfloor ehating kits

Underfloor heating thermostats have a limit to the amount of power they can switch - most have a limit of 16amp. This has an implication for larger areas of underfloor heating.

16amps is 3600watts and therefore choosing different heating mat wattages will alter the amount of heating you can install onto 1 thermostat.

  • ProWarm™ 100w electric systems

    For a 100watt per meter heating mat or cable you could install up to 36m2 onto 1 thermostat.

  • ProWarm™ 150w electric systems

    For a 150watt per meter heating mat or cable you could install up to 24m2 onto 1 thermostat.

  • ProWarm™ 200w electric systems

    For a 200watt per meter heating mat or cable you could install up to 18m2 onto 1 thermostat.

For areas above these sizes then you have two options

  1. Split the area into 2 zones.
  2. Install a contactor. A contactor is a switch capable of switching high loads. your thermostat would switch this on rather than the heating. All the heating power supplies run back to the contactor position.
