All Comfort Heat thermostats include a floor sensor maintaining consistent floor temperature. Floor sensing thermostats are the safest and most energy efficient floor heating regulators ensuring the floor does not overheated, and kept at the desired temperature.
The sensor end should be located in the floor between the heating cables/pipes so it measures the typical floor temperature. The sensor tube should not pass over or under the heating cable.
All Comfort Heat sensors installed in-slab, in-screed or thin mats are installed in a sensor tube. (12mm plastic tube with capped end) This allows the sensor to be removed if required, without lifting floor tiles.
Under-carpet and under timber systems do not require a sensor tube.
