INSTALLATION AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Before you start installing the electric floor heating, you should first
read through this manual completely.
General points of attention
Bush Nelson Warm Tiles is designed to function as comfort electric floor heating.
It will usually be necessary to have an additional heating source in the room
you want to heat.
Before you start installing, you should make sure that
the heating cable is suitable for the surface to be heated. Firstly, you have
to estimate the surface area of the room; this is the area you want heated and
does not include, for example, the space under the shower, under kitchen cupboards
etc. Secondly, you have to estimate the distance between the coils in the cable.
To do this, look up the capacity of the cable on the label and calculate the distance
using the formula below:
Distance between coils = 1500 x surface area in
the output of the heating cable in W
The distance can vary
from 6 to 12 centimetres. The smaller the distance (minimum 6cm) the faster your
floor will heat up. A large distance between coils (larger than 12cm) combined
with a low floor height increases the chance of cold and warm spots in the floor.
Cutting a groove in the floor for PVC pipes
To keep the floor height as
low as possible, you can cut out a groove of approximately 1cm deep in the places
where the PVC pipes for the floor sensor and the connection cable have to be laid.
Priming the subfloor
The cement subfloor needs to be primed with a suitable
primer so it will bond properly with the screed. This primer also helps prevent
the forming of air bubbles and water being extracted too quickly when levelling
with the self-levelling floor screed. Follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Placing the mounting strip
The Easy Heat mounting strips should be laid
in grooves cut into the subfloor. The distance between the strips and the wall
should be 20cm. The distance between the mounting strips is 40 to 50cm. Nail or
screw the strip into position.
4) Placing the heating cable
heating cable should be laid on the mounting strips in a zigzag pattern. You can
calculate the correct distance between the coils in the cable using the formula
provided. You should start laying the cable where the PVC pipe comes out of the
wall. At the end of the cable, you simply stop, you do not have to return the
end to the connection point (the PVC pipe).
The floor sensor of the thermostat
is place in a PVC tube between the heating cables. The distance from the wall
to the sensor is a minimum of 50cm.
N.B. Be sure to seal off the open
end of the PVC tube with tape so that the sensor does not come into contact with
the self-levelling floor screed.
5) Check cable
Do not lay the
heating cable in places where the floor will subsequently have to be drilled (for
example when placing a toilet).
The heating cable may not cross over itself
or be shortened. If you have any cable over, you should reduce the distance between
the coils (minimum 5cm). You can test the cable to make sure it works properly
by connecting it directly to the main electricity (230 VAC).
After a few minutes,
the cable should feel warm to touch. Take care! The cable has to be completely
laid before you do this.
The cable must be covered
by a cementious material such as a self-levelling floor screed. The screed has
to have a minimum thickness of 6mm. Follow the manufacturer's instruction for
levelling the floor.
After the screed has hardened,
you can tile the floor using tile adhesive and jointing mortar suitable for floor
heating. Follow the manufacturer's instructions.
8) Electrical wiring
The electrical installation must always comply with locally applicable standards
and be carried out by a recognised installer.
9) Connecting the thermostat
Connect the cable(s), floor sensor and wiring to the thermostat as shown in the
wiring diagram. Follow instructions in the thermostat installation manual.
