Frequently Asked Questions

Can Thermonet Heatmats be used in wet areas?

Yes, Thermonet Heatmats, both 120v and 240v, are 100% waterproof. Installing the heatmats under tile in showers and spa rooms is both safe and very beneficial.  The Heatmats are not only make your tile luxuriously comfortable, removing the chill of ceramic tile, but also helps the moisture evaporate quickly because of the warmth, which is added safety feature in wet rooms. (However, Thermonet recommends that a separate heatmat is used for the shower area. If the heatmat in the shower is damaged, it cannot be repaired because the waterproof feature of the heatmat will be compromised. By using a separate Thermonet Heatmat in the shower, the floor heating in the bathroom floor will not be affected.)

Could underfloor heat source become too hot for pets and children?

No, Thermonet underfloor heat systems are designed to be controlled by programmable thermostats that keep your floor at your desired comfort level, never hot, just comfortable.  Keeping your floors at slightly higher than desired room temperature will not only make your floors luxuriously comfortable to walk or lounge on, but also will allow the radiant qualities of this form of heating to transfer to objects in the room, reducing the need for other sources of heat.  Safety Tip: Thermonet UFH systems reduce the need for 'hot' space heaters or radiators that can be dangerous to your young children or pets.

Is it difficult to install a Heatmat system?

No, while we recommend your tile installer to install the underfloor heatmat system for you, it is often done by 'do-it-yourself' homeowners.  Follow the installation instructions provided and you should be a pro at it after one small bathroom install.  Feel free to email techsupport@thermonetusa.com with any questions you may have before or during your installation, a technician will be glad to help you.  if you do install yourself, we recommend you use the Thermonet Heatmat Monitor during install as it is your security system -- it will immediately beep at you if there is any fault detected.
