Thermostats
Why a Thermostat? For your Safety
While some people have connected a floor heating system to a simple switch, it would not be safe and would not meet building codes or safety standards. Thermostats for floor heating have a sensor within the floor to accurately measure the temperature and most contain a GFCI.

Our Thermostats

Programmable Thermostats Save Energy

Programmable thermostats are our number one sellers and have a clock and 7 day calendar built-in which allows you to set the time and temperature options according to your schedule. You floor will automatically turn on and off at the times you choose and to the temperature you prefer. You can set your own program, or use one of the standard schedules already preset in the Stat. Having your floor off when you are away from home also saves you money, just like turning off the lights when you aren’t home. Of course, all programmable models also can be simply turned off or put into a manual non programmable mode too.

Programmable thermostats are best for:

Energy savings – never forget to turn it off (or on)

Warm floors when you want them – pre-heated according to your daily schedule

Set it and forget it – same schedule every day or a different one for weekends

Still allow the flexibility of manual override control to change temperature or on/off

Non-programmable thermostats give you complete manual control over your floor temperature but have no clock or timer features.

Choose a simple dial or an LCD screen with buttons and backlight. On/Off, GFCI test, and temperature setting are your only options.

The floor will continually warm to the temperature you set until you change the temperature or turn it off.

Remember

Floor heating doesn’t come to temperature instantly like turning on a light switch. The floor heating has to warm up the mortar and tile and can take anywhere from 15 min (insulated frame floor above a heated space) to a few hours on concrete slabs. Any of our thermostats will work with any of our floor heating systems interchangeably. All models have floor sensing capability and include a floor sensor wire.Some thermostats have Ambient Air temperature modes and floor limit features. See individual models for a listing of all features.

Non Programmable Thermostats are best for:

Small areas that you may leave on all winter or low energy cost areas

Those wanting simplicity and frequent changing schedules

Framed floors – not on concrete

Nuheat requires a line voltage thermostat different from an HVAC thermostat, which operates at 24v. There are three thermostat options for controlling your Nuheat electric floor heating system and all include 5mA Class A GFCIs built-in for your safety.

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. This safety device terminates the electrical power to the radiant heat system immediately in the event of damage to a wire or another catastrophe. A GFCI is required by electric code for floor heating applications, just like it’s required in most North American bathroom outlets. We always recommend one of our floor heat sensing Thermostats with its built-in GFCI protection.

(An example of this would be adding a 1.5 Amp 180 watt Towel Warmer onto a Floor warming circuit of 10 amps / 1200 watts).

With its radiant color display, The SunTouch SunStat View thermostat is both appealing and user friendly. Suntouch, the forerunner in floor heat technology, has advanced to the new comprehensive touch screen technology. The Easy Setup Wizard allows you to make a custom heat cycle schedule, or simply select a pre-set program that works for you. See it, Touch it, Change it.

You can connect up to 3 mats totalling 150 Sq Ft of 120V and 300 Sq Feet of 240V SunTouch mat to one SunStat (15 Amp Load). More than 3 mats makes for an unsafe wire connection in the electrical box and violates most electric codes. So, keep it to 3 mats or less — simply choose larger mats from our selection of 67 sizes in 4 widths. You could also use a series of junction boxes to connect more mats to one SunStat, but this is seldom necessary or cost effective when you can simply choose the right mats for your project. Or, let us help you choose the correct mats.
