Loose Wire – NADWS

Can I cut the Electric Floor Heating System if I have too much?

You cannot cut the floor heating wire for any reason.  If you have too much floor heating wire for your floor configuration there are only two options.

1.  If you have excess wire, it is possible to adjust the spacing of your wires.  For example, if the wires are spaced at 3 inches apart you can adjust the spacing to be closer, making sure that you never space the wires closer than 2 inches.

2.  If you used a 4 inch border, make it a 2 inch border instead.

3.  Place the wire in sections of the room not currently covered to use up additional wire, always remembering not to place the wire under any permanent fixtures and not positioning them closer than 2 inches apart.

4.  In some cases you may have simply miscalculated how much floor heating wire was needed and you just have too much.  In this case you will have to remeasure your space, return the floor heating system and request a different size.  There is typically a small restocking fee involved.

As a reminder, it is vital that you carefully measure your desired heating area prior to ordering your product to avoid unnecessary installation delays.  Please take advantage of the many installation videos available on our website at www.warmup.com.
