Nuheat's Tuesday Tip - Installing Two or More Cable Kits Together

Here is this week's slightly belated Tuesday Tip.
To validate the Nuheat Mat warranty and ensure optimal performance, it's important to conduction insulation and resistance tests before, during and after installation of the mat. For both tests you'll need an ohm/multimeter with alligator clips, or an equivalent devise. During each stage of testing, remember to record the readings in the installation instructions that come with the mat. These instructions should stay with the end-user for warranty purposes.
