12” ZMesh Heating Element is the ideal system for heating under hardwood floors. ZMesh can be installed directly under the hardwood flooring. Nails or staples to hold the hardwood covering may be driven directly through the ZMesh as long as the nails or staples do not come in contact with any other metal object.
Allow the Hardwood to acclimate to the humidity level by bringing in the Hardwood several weeks before installation. This will minimize dimensional changes due to moisture. Install the ZMeah Heating Element to the subfloor and run a continuous continuity check to make sure the Zmesh is not damaged or shorting to something conductive. Let the System run for 2 to 3 days before nailing or stapling the Hardwood to the subfloor. It is very important to check with the manufacturer of the Hardwood before installing.
Flooring installed over Radiant Heat should never have a surface temperature exceeding 85 degrees. The surface temperature of the floor is controlled by the M321RS Programmable Thermostat with a floor sensor – 7 Day – (4) programmable period per day. The thermostat has a maximum temperature setting of 90 degrees. The system only will come on when the temperature falls 2 degrees below the temperature you set it at. If you set you’re Programmable Thermostat at 72 degrees and the temperature falls to 70 degrees the system will come on until the temperature reaches 72 degrees. The Heatizon System does not run 24 hours – 7 days a week. Ask you your Hardwood Supplier about heat from sunlight affecting the Hardwood. The temperature from sunlight could reach temperatures above 85 degrees.
