April 2, 2015: Nuheat is now a Pentair company. More information.


Nuheat Cable is a floor heating system that allows contractors to instantly make on-site adjustments to the floor heating coverage for any room including those with curves and angles. Nuheat Cable can be also used to heat wet areas such as shower beds and benches or saunas.

Nuheat Cable can be controlled using the same programmable and non-programmable thermostat options as Nuheat Mats.

Use the following tips to calculate the square footage of the heated area:

  • The heated area of the room should exclude areas beneath counters, fixed furniture, or any other areas where Nuheat cannot be installed under.

Tips to calculate square footage:

  • Square footage is calculated by multiplying the length (in feet) by the width (in feet) of an area.
  • Triangles are squares/rectangles split diagonally in half. To calculate the square footage of a triangle, multiply the length (in feet) by the width (in feet) of the triangle and divide by two.
  • If needed, break up the heated area into smaller squares, rectangles, and/or triangles to help calculate the square footage of the entire area. Calculate the square footage of each individual area and add the square footages together.

Area A = 3′ x 4′ = 12 sq ft Area B = 4′ x 5′ = 20 sq ft Area C = 2′ x 2′ ÷ 2 =  2 sq ft Total 34 sq ft

Tile/Stone Installations

Patented Nuheat Cable Guides (included in each kit) are first secured onto the subfloor around the perimeter of the room. The Nuheat Cable Guides are superior to other clips used with other floor heating cable systems as they are made of durable flexible plastic and lay flat on the subfloor to guarantee a low profile. The heating cable is then installed and covered with self-leveler or thinset. After the self-leveler or thinset has cured, flooring can then be installed over top.
