Installing a Heated Tile Floor
Amy Matthews: A heated tile floor is an elegant upgrade to any room, a level to the electrical current heats the tiles that will make your cold feet warm. Here are a few things to consider if you like to install like heated tile floor in your home.
First make a blueprint of your bathroom and pre-plan the layout of the heating element. We’re using a system with a mesh floor mat and embedded heating wire.
Female: These are really easy to use and super easy to put down.
Amy Matthews: It’s important to test the electrical current with an Ohm meter.
Female: Anyone who test it before you start during the installation and afterwards because if you don’t and you don’t write it down and record it, it actually voids your warranty.
Amy Matthews: This mat is recommended to be within 14 and 17 Ohms, you want to make sure that you’re within the usually say about 5% of those numbers. Testing the mat during installation ensures that it works.
Female: 17.2 we’re looking good?
Male: Looking good. All right.
Amy Matthews: A special alarm called a “loudmouth” sounds off if you nicked or cut off the heating wire. Because the last thing you want to do is put this thing down and then turn it on and have it be cold. Next the mat is laid out and stapled to the floor.
Female: And I would just sit another one in there the four corners near you and then we’ll start winding this around.
Amy Matthews: To make a turn cut the mesh mat but be careful not to cut the heating wire.
Female: So we have this going down to the vanity and they flip it around we’re going to cut half way, we’re going to sneak it in one cord in, mat inside the room and the sneak our way back out, right?
Amy Matthews: Always dry sit the mat before you fasten them to the floor. After the mat is installed you can start laying tile a thick code of 10 protects the hitting element and covers the mat then lay down the tile just like any other tiling project. When you’re done you’ll have a beautiful tile floor that feels like walking on the beach you’ll save money on your heating bill and never have to tiptoe out of the shower again. With a little know how you can actually make money with increased equity by doing the work yourself. I’m Amy Matthews from DIY Networks Sweat Equity.
