  • May 19, 2015 - Installing the Sensor Probe

    Don’t forget to install your sensor probe, included with every Nuheat thermostat! Once the Nuheat mat is pressed into thinset duct tape the sensor probe on top of the mat evenly between two heating wires. While the probe’s wire can cross on top of the heating wire, ensure the probe’s tip is away from other heat sources such as heating vents and not placed underneath where objects will be placed such as bathmats.  If you have forgotten the probe, the floor heating can also be controlled with ambient temperature!


  • May 6, 2015– Swapped Thermostat Heat up Time

    Have you recently upgraded your existing floor heating thermostat to our new line of Next Generation Thermostats? You may notice in the first few days your floor is not heating up to the set temperature. The reason for this is that the thermostat takes a few days to learn  the heating/cooling characteristics of the floor since each home’s floor is different due to outside temperate, insulation and flooring material type and thickness. As long as you have the ‘Early Start’ turned on and allow the thermostat to run for a few days uninterrupted, your Nuheat warm floors will be back to its optimal performance, heating up to your chosen temperate at the scheduled time.

  • April 28, 2015 – How Many Mats on One Thermostat?

    A single thermostat can control multiple mats, cables, or a combination of the two. The question is not how many mats or cables but rather how many amps. Each thermostat can handle a total load of 15 amps, this is equal to 150 square feet of heated floors in 120V and 300 square feet of heated floors in 240V. Simply add up the total amperage of the systems and if they are under 15 amps a single thermostat will do, if the total is greater than 15 amps, a relay or additional thermostat must be used.

  • April 21, 2015 – Nuheat is Repairable

    If your floor ever stops heating, no need to fear, we can repair the system without ripping up your floor! The Nuheat system is repairable, if a wire is nicked during installation we offer a Nuheat Repair Kit containing all the materials needed to repair the system including a complete set of easy-to-follow instructions. If your flooring has already been installed we have repair technicians with equipment to pinpoint the location of the break to simply lift up that tile and repair the system.

  • April 14, 2015 – Technology Not Your Thing?

    No problem, you can have floor heating made simple with the Nuheat element thermostat! The element is a non-programmable thermostat that allows easy, basic control. It features simple “up” or “down” temperature control, clock display, and energy use monitoring for the last seven days.

  • April 7, 2015 – Don’t Forget Your Mat Sense Pro

    Use a Mat Sense Pro to ensure a correct Nuheat installation every time, this handy tool is an electrical fault indicator that simultaneously monitors the hot, neutral and ground wires during your Nuheat Mat or Nuheat Cable Installation. If you should nick a wire during installation the Mat Sense Pro will notify you with a buzzing sound, for you to stop and repair the wire before installing your tile.

  • March 24, 2015 - Nuheat in Your Shower

    Did you know Nuheat is UL and CSA approved for wet applications? Yup that’s right, you can use Nuheat in your shower and on your shower bench! The tile will be warm before the water even hits it, as well as the areas the water doesn’t reach. Nuheat will also heat the air around you and dry the areas very quickly afterwards to prevent mildew from forming.

  • March 10, 2015 – Benefits of Radiant Heat

    There are several health benefits to radiant heating! Surfaces within the space are heated rather than the air itself, therefore people feel more comfortable as heating is evenly distributed within each space, eliminating hot or cold spots. There is less circulation of dust and particles that can cause allergies, with no need for ductwork, fan noises and stop/start sounds are reduced to promote clean & quiet living.

  • February 24, 2015 - Pipe Burst Prevention

    Broken pipes are usually the number-one, most expensive repair during cold weather episodes. Exposed pipes begin to freeze when temperatures reach 32F or below. Pipe freezing is a problem because water has a unique property in that it expands as it freezes. This expansion puts tremendous pressure on whatever is containing it, including metal or plastic pipes. No matter the “strength” of a container, expanding water can cause pipes to break. Nuheat’s plug-in kits are a quick and inexpensive solution!

  • February 3, 2015 - Sole Heat Source

    Nuheat can replace your electric baseboards and water radiators to provide the sole heat for your home. Electric radiant floor heating will heat the entire room, not just the floor surface to provide even and consistent heat coverage. Nuheat provides 41 BTUs per square foot as opposed to base board heaters at 34 BTUs per square foot.

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.
