Schemes for connecting a film underfloor heating to the network
Typically, a film coating is used for laying under a laminate, parquet board and linoleum. Laying it on the surface is very simple, you just need to place the sheets butt to butt. The only thing that can cause difficulties is the connection of the system to the 220 Volt mains. So that you do not have any questions during installation, we recommend that you look at 2 simple schemes for connecting an infrared warm floor through a thermostat.
Immediately draw your attention to the fact that it is unreasonable to make a connection without a thermostat. This device makes the heating system automatic and also allows you to save up to 40% of electricity, and this is a fairly high figure at calculation of electricity consumption underfloor heating.
So, a typical scheme for connecting an infrared film through a temperature regulator is as follows:
As you can see, everything is quite simple - the input phase and zero are connected to the corresponding terminal blocks on the temperature controller. Of the remaining four connectors, conductors go to the temperature sensor and directly infrared heaters. A small drawback of such a scheme is that the wires will intersect and become confused. To prevent this from happening, we recommend using an alternative DIY infrared floor heating connection scheme:
In this case, the wire connection is not so confusing. All phase conductors are wound on top and zeros on the bottom. This will not affect the system’s performance, but at the same time this option of wiring will protect the novice electrician from phase and zero confusion. A very important requirement - be careful and connect only the connectors of the same name, as shown in the diagram.
That's all I wanted to tell you about this issue. We hope that the provided electrical circuits for connecting a film warm floor through a thermostat were understandable and useful for you. We also recommend that you familiarize yourself with the technology of laying the material in the video example provided below.
