    Plan Your Layout
    Measure and draw a layout simple plan (or send it to us and let us draw a layout for you) mark your Thermostat location (starting point for mats) and what areas you want to warm. Expect to place mats everywhere you want warmth heat does not spread

    Roll Out Mat(s)
    Turn and cut mesh (if needed) to custom fit to your room. Attach mat to subfloor with the built-in tape then mount the SunStat and place floor temperature sensor between 2 heating wires.
    Cover with Mortar
    Cover mats with a cement based mortar, let it cure, then install your floor covering. If you are installing tile, you can install the tile when you apply the mortar. Connect mat power leads to your thermostat in parallel.

Why Helps

SunTouch = Zero EMF

An emerging issue in the electric radiant heat industry is EMF (electromagnetic field) radiation. SunTouch pioneered and sells only ZERO EMF products constructed with active dual wire EMF-canceling technology.

All SunTouch products use a complex wire construction with two heating elements in parallel with an added and patented helical twist to eliminate EMF. Other electric radiant floor heating companies sell single-wire systems that release high levels of EMF when compared to SunTouch.

What is EMF? Electromagnetic fields (EMF) come from all electrical appliances, but studies show an average American's daily exposure is less than 1 unit (mG) of EMF. But. when you sit on an unshielded electric radiant floor, you may be exposed to 20, 40, or more times the average daily exposure. This Data comes from Independent testing. Read More Here

Is limiting exposure to EMF important? No one is certain. The World Health Organization says the data is inconclusive to date, but continues their research. We provide this EMF information because it is important to some people, not to frighten you or exaggerate any risk.

For many years customers have chosen SunTouch Zero EMF systems, but we leave the choice to you after explaining what we do know.
