Underfloor heating is the preferred choice when deciding on heating a country house. Its undoubted advantages are ease of installation and maintenance, reliability in operation. See more detailed instructions where we have clearly disassembled the installation of an electric underfloor heating with our own hands with a photo in a video with examples. It is necessary to start work with floor markings. Underfloor heating does not fit in places where furniture or plumbing is installed. The place for the temperature sensor is also determined, while taking into account that it should be located between the loops of the heating cable.
Then the walls are channeled under the mounting box. A groove is cut from it with a perforator, into which a corrugated tube containing a thermal sensor and its cable will be laid. The tube is fixed with alabaster or cement-sand mixture. Its end is carefully sealed with adhesive tape.
A 10mm thick thermal insulation tape is glued to the wall below. Now, sheets of heat-insulating material - polystyrene or foam - are laid on the floor. Since condensation can accumulate under the cable during heating, a layer of polyethylene is overlapped on top for waterproofing. The seams are glued together with mounting tape or soldered with a building hairdryer or blowtorch.
Now you need to create a base for installing the heating cable for the electric underfloor heating. To do this, you need to make a screed. Next, lay the mounting tape, securing it with nails or self-tapping screws. The distance between the rows of the mounting tape is about 1 m. Before laying the heating cable, its resistance must be checked. It must correspond to the passport data. We put the heating cable in the clips of the mounting tape and fix them. Under no circumstances should the cable sections cross or touch. The optimal distance between two cable segments is considered to be 25 - 35 cm. The size of the cable loop should not be less than 5 cm. We also fix the corrugated tube with a temperature sensor. We put the ends of the heating cable into the junction box.
The installation of an electric underfloor heating has come to an end, we are watching a video example. Now it is necessary to make a cement screed up to 4 cm thick. After the screed can withstand the weight of a person (usually 3 - 4 days), we start working with the electrical wiring. We install a thermostat in the junction box. At the same time, we put the temperature sensor cable, the ends of the heating cable, and the power supply wires into special sockets. It is also worth providing a residual current device in the circuit. After the screed has completely dried, we put the finishing coat. Apartment renovation with us will be faster and cheaper!
