What do I do if my floor heating mat is too large?

First, when it come to having excess floor heating product you must NEVER, EVER, cut the floor heating wire.  Why? The resistance (the measurement of the amount of resistance the electrical current meets as it passes through the wire) for your mat or cable is calculated on the length of the heater. Shortening the wire would actually increase the resistance and thereby the temperature. This will cause the wire to overheat and negatively impact the functioning of your floor heating system.

In extreme situations,NOT RECOMMENDED, it is possible to shorten the cable by less than 10% of its length, but it would VOID WARMUP’S WARRANTY. The cable is expected to operate fine at slightly higher temperatures, but it may put undue strain on the end-splice, potentially causing failure down the road.
