2.3 Heatwave® typical installations and applications

Alternative method: self-leveling cement is recommended for large surfaces and the following floor materials: engineered wood, laminate, floating floors, vinyl, linoleum and carpet.

Consult the manufacturer for information on special installation requirements for carpets, wood, laminate and vinyl or linoleum flooring.

  • Read the instructions carefully before installing Heatwave® system.
  • Remember to measure the resistance four times.
  • Do not install Heatwave® in walls or ceilings.
  • The cable must be embedded in cementitious material.
  • The minimum installation temperature is 40ºF (5°C ).
  • The heating cable cannot be cut to length, crossed over itself, or installed too close to itself.
  • Use copper conductor feeder wire only.
  • Remember to check that the supply voltage matches the voltage of the Heatwave.
  • Remember to place the labels as written in this instruction.
  • Only for indoor installation.
  • Metal structures or materials used for the support of or on which the Heatwave® is installed must be grounded in accordance with applicable CSA or NEC requirements.
