 Electric cable "warm floor" - one of the most effective methods to heat the room or create the most comfortable conditions for it. Its such a system - not so complicated, and it may well be carried out independently.

Stacking circuit is carried out according to certain rules. The length of the heating cable must provide the required amount of thermal energy for a particular room (see. The corresponding length calculation calculator). Stacking is carried zigzag loops, with a certain step therebetween to provide the most uniform heating of the floor surface. With this parameter, the calculator will determine the calculation step of laying the heating cable is placed below.

Several of the recommendations for the calculation will be given after the calculator.

Explanations for the calculations

  • Area cable management - this is not the whole room, but only those areas where it is really stacked. Excluded from the calculation of the installation location of the stationary furniture portions bear against the walls (at least 50 mm), and to the radiators (not less than 100 mm). It is considered quite normal if the calculated stacking area "warm floor" is about 75% of the total floor space.
  • The starting value for calculation is not calculated calculator cable length and the length of already acquired kit, which may differ somewhat from the resultant calculation value.
  • The cable is heated evenly and simultaneously throughout its length, so when stacking schemes can avoid complex - is sufficient to ensure uniformity of revolutions location.
  • Step stacking try to maintain the same in order to prevent "zebra effect" - pronounced alternation of warm and cold streaks.
  • It is strictly forbidden cable crossing on the floor.
