At this stage it its likely that an RCD protected
electric underfloor heating system has been
installed and a back box is already in place.
The underfloor heating cold tail should be pulled
up through the back box, and the sensor probe
installed (in the conduit provided) within the
wall cavity or pre chased channel in a solid wall.

is used to control the temperature.
Underfloor heating cold tails and floor
sensor probes can be extended up to 50m.
50m max.

A typical heating schedule
A typical heating schedule for a working family would
look something like this. The heating is on in the
morning and evening during the weekdays, and then
at weekends it’s on in the morning, for a period in the
afternoon and then again in the evening.
You can adjust the time and temperature of any of
these heating events to suit your lifestyle.
