What type of thermostat should I use for underfloor heating?
First, you should know that a forced-air heater and floor heat thermostat are different.
A floor heat system runs on a dedicated circuit requiring a specific type of thermostat – a radiant floor heat thermostat.
What’s the difference between the furnace and the floor heat thermostat?
The difference between a forced-air thermostat and an electric radiant floor heat thermostat is that the furnace thermostat measures the air temperature. In contrast, a floor heat thermostat measures the temperature of the floor.
Your air temperature never influences floor heat temperature. The heat sensor installed under your floor keeps the floor heat at the temperature you set on the floor heat thermostat.
Does Gold Heat offer floor heat thermostats with custom mats or heat film?
