The heating cable heating system is a new floor heating system that uses electrical energy as a heating energy source. Simply laying the heating cable or electric mat under the ground and then controlling it through a temperature controller can provide good warmth for the room, rapidly warming up, clean and environmentally friendly, without occupying the interior space of the room. Due to long-term humid conditions in the bathroom, especially in winter, the ground may freeze. Therefore, using a heating cable heating system can not only provide heating, but also quickly dry the ground. Below is a brief introduction to the measurement and installation of the heating cable heating system in the bathroom.
1. Measure the size of the bathroom and draw a sketch, marking the layout of the heating cable and the location of the thermostat. Heating cables should be evenly distributed on the open ground of the room as much as possible,
2. The heating cable should bypass the drainage pipe and clean the water pipe under the basin and any other facilities attached to the ground to avoid damaging the heating cable during the future home installation and maintenance of relevant pipeline facilities.
3. From the location where the thermostat is planned to be installed (on the wall) to the ground at a distance of 1 meter, chisel a shallow groove with a width and depth of 10 mm.
4. Fix the plastic pipe used to install the sensor in the shallow groove with glue. The end of the sensor pipe should be sealed with adhesive tape to prevent cement or concrete from entering the pipe.
Clean and prepare the ground, and fix the heating cable to the ground.
After installing the heating cable, be sure to measure the resistance value of the heating cable. The resistance value should be consistent with the label, within the range of 5% - 10%. You can then choose to use self-leveling cement or other floor adhesives.
7. Apply floor adhesive or self-leveling cement to cover the heating cable.
8. Install a new floor.
