How to Measure for Nuheat Mats Thank you for choosing Nuheat from Warm Your Floor! We will make your Nuheat project an easy one. Simply follow our guidelines and send your room’s dimensions to Warm Your Floor for a Fast, Free Quote. Measure tight to all edges & record all measurements. Do not make any allowances in the measurements. If the floor area has an angled side, it is a good idea to provide an “angle lock” to an opposite wall. Please include the following on your sketch with all perimeter dimensions of your room(s) : Thermostat location Voltage Available (120V or 240V) 120v is best for areas < 150 SF Vent locations identified Obstructions in the floor - including, but not limited to: toilet, bidet, plumbing, pony walls Special Instructions (i.e. heat not required areas, tight coverage requested, etc…) Fax Toll Free to 866 – 558 – 2010 or Email to firstname.lastname@example.org Upon receipt of your dimensions we will send a Quote for your Nuheat Custom Mat within 24 hours. After you review your quote and are ready to proceed: 1. Our in house design team will draw your mat with a 2”-4” offset to allow for minor adjustments. 2. We will send you this Production Drawing which shows your mat in the room for your approval. 3. You approve (or make corrections and repeat), then Return the signed Drawing & Pay for your mat 4. Nuheat manufactures in 2-4 days (if you pay expedited shipping charges the mat often ships in 1 day) You can use more than one Nuheat mat (Standard or Custom) combined to fit any room size or shape, up to the 15 amp limit of the thermostat. Each Mat lead is 10 Ft long (Can be customized up to 22 Ft) and connects directly to the Thermostat (not to each other). 15 amps =150 SF @120v, 300 SF @ 240v. And, if your room is over 300 SF you can simply add a relay or an additional circuit with another Thermostat. Installing Nuheat is easy no matter which flooring you want to warm; tile, stone, marble, laminate and engineered wood surfaces are all compatible with this revolutionary electric radiant floor heat system. Tile, Stone, Marble, Etc: The Nuheat Mat(s) is simply adhered to the subfloor using thinset and the flooring can then be immediately installed over top. Laminate / Engineered wood floors Installation: The Nuheat Mat(s) is simply adhered to the subfloor using thinset then covered with 1/4" thick layer of thinset. Then follow manufacturer's installation instructions to install the underlay (if used) and your laminate or engineered wood floor. Nuheat offers over 60 different standard sizes electric under floor heat mats that fit most rooms as well as our custom mats that are "pre-built" to fit rooms with curves and angles. When full coverage cannot be achieved with Nuheat Standard Electric Floor Warming mats (i.e. angles or curved walls), the Nuheat Radiant Floor Warming System offers Custom Mats to provide optimal coverage, in 120 and 240 Volt solutions. As the Nuheat Custom Mats will be manufactured for your unique application, no exchange or refund is possible. So, Please measure carefully and double check your numbers if not certain! We are here to help with expert advice as well. We can even assist you while you are measuring – call us for help and a “Phone Measure” with an expert!

How to Measure your room for Nuheat Floor Warming mats Step 1 – Drawing Preparations Sketch the shape of the room – a drawing grid follows this page. Locate toilet, Bidet, vanities, make-up knee space, vents, drains, etc. (if applicable) Please indicate the proposed thermostat location with a “ T ” Step 2 – Field Measuring Choose a starting point, begin measuring the complete inside perimeter of the room at floor level finishing at the starting point – include even small dimensions Measure tight to all edges & record all measurements. Do not make any allowances in the measurements For toilet rooms, letters c, d, e, f, h, i, & j are required to provide heat through door opening Letter t is required to confirm angles For vents, letters u, v & w are required (where applicable) Step 3 – Additional Information, if Applicable Have complex angles or curves? Additional measuring instructions are available on our website Please contact Warm Your Floor for assistance with your Nuheat project at 1-866-558-3369 or visit www.WarmYourFloor.com. Measuring Curves and Angles for Nuheat Mat Multiple and Compound Angles For rooms or ﬁxtures with multiple angles, pick a reference point directly across (perpendicular) from an angle corner and measure the distance between these two points (this is an angle lock). This measurement combined with your perimeter dimensions will allow the Design Team to calculate the angles of your walls or ﬁxtures. Curves 1) Mark the three points of your curve on the ﬂoor - the start point, center point (apex) and end point. 2) Measure the distance from the start point and end point to the wall or cabinet (toe kick). 3) Determine your reference points based on the curve types: A) Curve Type #1 - Curve on a straight plane Pick a point directly across (perpendicular) from the center point or apex of the curve and measure the distance between the two points (this is a curve lock). B) Curve Type #2 - Curve on a corner Measure from the center point or apex to two reference points (corners) in the room and record these measurements on your drawing. C) Curve type #3 - Irregular Curves 1) Draw a 90 degree reference line from the top to the bottom of the curve - show the reference line on both the ﬂoor and your drawing. 2) Measure and mark 12” increments along your reference line. Measure and record the distance from the reference line to the curve at each 12” increment. Project Name & Address: Contact Name Email: Fax Installed Nuheat Before?

Leave it to our Design Experts! Provide us the actual measurements and locations of cabinets, shower, tub, etc. Draw the outline of the room and include all inside perimeter dimensions. Include the location and measurements for all items inside the room including plumbing and pony walls Bath: Toilet, bidet, floor drain, floor heat vents, cabinets, pedestal sinks, tub step, shower, etc. Kitchen: Cabinets, Island, floor heat vents or other obstructions or areas you want un-heated Fax 1 – 866 – 558 – 2010 or Email Quote@WarmYourFloor.com for a Fast & Free quotation!
