Electric In-Floor Heating for Tile or Any Floor Type
- Loose cable engineered to fit any space and any floor type
- 10-12 W/ft² output designed for ideal heat distribution
- 1/8" profile cable for minimal added floor height
- Made in the USA
When you need an underfloor heat product for flexible application, ThermoTile Cable is the right solution. ThermoTile can be installed under most types of floor coverings including wood, laminate, vinyl, carpet, and, of, course tile. Because it is loose cable, ThermoTIle radiant heat can be applied to areas of any size or shape. ThermoTile cable can be arranged using our FixFast strips under a self-leveler for a budget-friendly option.
Floor Heating Cable
Combine cables as needed to fit open walkable space, avoiding areas covered by cabinets, vanities or other permanent fixtures. The heating cable cannot be shortened, so avoid over-filling. Each cable will connect to the thermostat, so larger cables will reduce required connections. At 3" spacing on a sole thermostat, 120V cables cover up to 150 ft²; 240V cables cover up to 300 ft². DO NOT MIX VOLTAGES.Contact us for project assistance.

Thermostats & Critical Components
A floor heating thermostat is necessary to control your radiant heat system. Most of our floor heating thermostats are dual-voltage and include a 5ma GFCI, unlike models from online warehouse retailers. A thermostat is capable of a 15-amp load; adding a power module or relay will increase system load capacity. Each includes a floor sensor, but a backup is recommended. Select 1 thermostat for each zone desired. Contact an expert for guidance.
Avoid future replacement headaches (15'). Include 1 per thermostat.

How To Install ThermoTile Heating Cable
This overview does not substitute for a full reading of the Installation Manual.
The below steps will take you from beginning to end simply, but please refer to the full Installation Manual or call us to go over a more detailed installation plan.
ThermoTile Cables are an easy way to add heat to a tile floor, and can even work for almost any other type of floor covering.
Before beginning your installation:
- Ensure that you have a structurally sound subfloor.
- Choose a starting point for the beginning of the cable, we suggest beginning near the planned placement of the thermostat.
1Make sure you have the right amount of material.
- Follow heating cable spacing from walls and studs according to the manual.
- Heating elements should be in areas where you can walk, stand, or want to heat. See your manual for areas to avoid heating.
- Contact support if you have any questions prior to your installation.
2Prepare the conduit(s) and gangbox for the addition of the floor heating thermostat.
- Complete electrical rough-in.
- This step may be done after cable is laid but is more difficult to do later as location of thermostat may change location of heating system.
3Position the heating cables throughout the room.
- Place both sensors close to the planned location of the thermostat, beacuse the floor sensor is connected directly to the thermostat.
- Use hot glue, tape, or metal straps to secure the heating cable to the subfloor.
- Turn the cable in appropriate patterns and fit your room shape.
- Do NOT cut the heating cable.
4Position your floor temperature sensor and your backup sensor evenly between 2 heating elements.
- Highly recommended to install a backup sensor.
- Position sensor evenly between 2 heating cables.
- If you did not order a backup floor sensor, we highly recommend ordering one now before the floor is installed.
5Spread thinset mortar or self-leveling cement over ThermoTile Heating Cable.
- Use a plastic trowel if spreading mortar for tile or stone floors.
- Use an appropriate self-leveler if planning a carpet, laminate, or vinyl installation.
6Lay tile and grout as normal.
- Take extreme care not to allow a sharp tool to damage your heating cables or sensors. These final 2 steps are the most common instances of accidental damage.
