Floor Preparation / Laying of Insulation. The concrete or wood sub floor should be stable, clean and suitable for the desired floor covering, prior to any underfloor heating being installed. Once the floor is prepared, start by rolling your insulation out over the sub floor making sure to cover the total floor area where the wood, laminate or vinyl floor covering is to be laid including unheated areas.A contact spray adhesive can be used or a double sided tape to hold the insulation in place if required but is not a necessity. The diagram below shows the soft insulation being installed with the floor sensor / probe fixed in place.
Once you have decided on the mat layout within your room you will first need to install the floor sensor supplied with your thermostat. Cut a small channel into the insulation layer to allow the floor sensor / probe to be laid into. The channel should be located under a heated area, (heat mat to be laid over this channel in next stage). Laying Underfloor Heating World (Living Heat) film mats. If you have requested a proposed mat layout from Living Heat you can simply hand this to the installer or follow the plan yourself.
Make sure you unroll and identify each mat, Start at one side of the room rolling the mats out in a structured way making sure not to overlap any mats at any point. Each mat can be held in place by using a suitable adhesion tape such as gaffa tape along the ends and side of the mats.

The connection ends and cold tails can be pressed into the insulation by scoring the insulation and firmly pressing the tails / ends into the scored insulation.
