2 About HeatMyFloors.com Subsidiary of Wright Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association Distributor of electric radiant floor heating products since 1996 Located in Rockford, Minn. 2

3 Your Host Dennis Schramel HeatMyFloors.com product manager Employed by Wright-Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association for 22 years Trained hundreds of electrical, HVAC, and remodeling contractors, and builders. 3

4 STEP Warmfloor Webinar Schedule Installation, wiring and controls for STEP Warmfloor December 11, from 7-8 p.m. CST Learn how to plan for the installation and placement of transformers and controls. 4

5 STEP Warmfloor Design Tips Understand how STEP Warmfloor system operates Primary heating or floor warming Involve and communicate to the entire design team Remember heat goes to cold 5

6 Insulation is a key to heating performance Your customer only pays for insulation once. Heat always migrates to cold- insulation assures heat moves towards intended direction Always add insulation if there is an opportunity, it plays a critical role in determining expected results. Perimeter insulation is important with slab on grade applications

7 Comparative R Values of Floor Coverings and Subfloors Wood sub floors R value =.825

8 Insulating the Subfloor Two methods- above or below subfloor Always add insulation below STEP Warmfloor when accessible 8

9 Cerazorb Insulation 4' x 4' 3/16" thick Weight 5 lbs "Synthetic cork product" will not support mold & mildew Typically used under laminate/engineered wood flooring as well as carpet over concrete slabs Can be used for tile applications

10 Cork Insulation ¼ & ½ thick Rolled cork sheets 4 x 50 or 4x100 Thermal insulation over concrete floors or over unheated spaces is important for efficiency and comfort Recommended under carpet or laminate wood floors Will not hold moisture Available through flooring stores

11 Pro Panel Insulated Cement Board 3 x 5 Weight -6lbs 1/4" R value = /2" R value = 2.30 Designed for wall and floor tile applications Meets industry standards Use modified thin set mortar

12 Insulation for Concrete Slab Applications The Barrier Strong and durable Easy and fast installation Utilize approved tape to secure STEP Warmfloor element to the barrier R-value 6.7, 8.2 and 10.3 Extruded Polystyrene R-10 Readily available

13 Floor Coverings Overlooked in radiant system design. Floor covering effects heat transfer Understand R-values are different for tile, vinyl, carpet, and wood

14 Element Spacing Guidelines for Floor Warming Tile 1 to 2-1/2 Wood spacing 3-5 Carpet spacing 1-8 Vinyl spacing 3-5 *Important* The finished flooring material also provides a guideline on how far the heating elements are spaced apart. *The elements should never touch one another

15 Element spaced correctly-

16 Element spacing over 3 will create cold spots or striping 16

17 Flooring Trends Flooring Trends Other Area Rugs Stone Laminate Ceramic Tile Resilient Carpet Hardwood Percentage

18 Ceramic Tile & Natural Stone Tile is an excellent heat absorbent with STEP Warmfloor Element spacing Respect curing times Always consider insulation underneath concrete applications (ProPanel or cork) ceiling open to space below (fiberglass batting

19

20 Elements Below Cement Backer Unit Below underlayment Consider dropping element secondary wires directly below subfloor if accessible Mark element bus braids prior to nailing or stapling underlayment down Option - recess the element connections into the subfloor, this will help keep backer board flat. Do not use mastics or glues over heating elements

21 Elements Above Cement Backer Unit Recess the element connections into the underlayment, this will help in laying tile nice and flat First imbed the heating element with thin set. Trowel in thin set mortar to set tiles. Do not use mastics or glues over heating elements!

22 Use Portland base self levelers Self leveler is not necessary with the STEP Warmfloor element

23 Ditra 5/16 thick STEP Warmfloor element is always installed below the membrane Uncoupling membrane

24 Wet Locations A waterproof membrane must be installed over the heating elements Liquid form such as RedGard Membranes -Kerdi Tech tip: wire elements directly to transformer. Do not interconnect with main bathroom elements. Kerdi or Equivalent

25 Resilient or Vinyl Flooring 3-5 element spacing Do not use glue or adhesives on top of heating elements Install 1/8 or 1/4 underlayment over heating elements Mark element bus braids, snap chalk line and secure with pneumatic nailer 25

26 Luxury Vinyl Tile - LVT One of the fastest growing floor coverings Low maintenance Long lifecycle cost Low profile Variety of designs, colors

27 Vinyl or Resilient Typical spacing is 3-5 Element is placed below Luan or Birchwood underlayment Avoid adhesives on element Consider dropping secondary wires below sub floor if accessible Mark the bus braids to avoid nailing into

28 Carpet Typical element spacing is 5-7 Carpet offers the least cost per square foot as the spacing between elements is wider. R values choose below R-2.5 total for carpet and pad Insulation options over concrete floors > Cerazorb 3/16 > Cork ¼

29 Carpet Utilize carpet pad as an insulation barrier. Install STEP Warmfloor element on pad followed by another carpet pad and then carpet Recommend fail safe wiring

30 Carpet Pads Carpet pads act as a retainer Recommended commercial carpet pads for longer life and performance > Healthy Choice > Sponge Cushion Avoid Legatt and Platt carpet pads for use over STEP Warmfloor

31 Carpet pads tips DO NOT use Rebond or bonded urethane pads due to high R-value regardless of type of radiant heating system. Avoid adhesives for glue downs as it can effect performance of STEP Warmfloor elements If a carpet is designed for glue down we recommend light weight concrete over heating elements 31

32 Comparative R Values of Carpet Pads Healthier Choice carpet pad Lowest emissions for best indoor air quality Long performance life Anti microbial Ideal for carpets, laminates and hardwoods

33

34 Laminate Wood Flooring Element spacing 3-5 Install STEP Warmfloor element perpendicular to wood planking Sounds control pads- High insulated pad install element over the top of the pad Low insulated pad install over the heating element 34

35 Hardwood Floors Element spacing 3-5 Wood floors require surface temperatures not to exceed 85 F Ideal for STEP Warmfloor! Slow and incremental temperature changes- Another benefit of STEP Warmfloor Install element perpendicular to the direction of the wood floor planking

36 Wood flooring Acclimate wood planking to humidity levels prior to installation 7-10 days Quarter sawn planking is best choice for radiant Avoid temperature swings, let the thermostat do its job Caution on using glue to secure planking

37 Installation tip Use a wood router to recess wire connections below subfloor allows for flat wood floor installation Router secondary wires that interconnect heating elements Mark routed path to avoid nailing into wires or bus braids

38 Installation tip with accessible sub floor Better approach drop secondary wires below subfloor Expose bus braid to second slot Fast installation compared to using router method

39 Staple up Staple element directly to sub floor Insulate with fiberglass batting (R- 11) or friction fit 1 polystyrene leaving no air gaps Joist space 16.5 on center one 12 element 23.5 on center = two 9 elements Recommend fail safe wiring

40 In Slab Concrete

41 The system is designed to be easy to install Cut elements to length at work site The 3", 9" or 12" wide radiant heating element comes on a roll and can be cut to length and field wired at the work site. There is no need to order customized mats to fit your project! Install under any floor coverings The radiant heating element operates on a low temperature and is approved to be installed under any floor coverings. Heat your hardwood floors without the risk of damage! No failure rate during installation The flexible polymer heating element is durable and will not be affected or destroyed by weight loads or walking on the elements during installation. Minimal floor buildup The radiant heating element is so thin (3/64") and can be installed directly under the floor coverings requiring minimal floor buildup. Flexible installation options The polymer element can be stapled onto the subfloor or stapled up between the joists or set in mortar. Suitable for remodeling and new constructions Minimal floor buildup and flexible installation options makes the heating systems just as suitable for retrofit applications, remodeling and new constructions
